The famous novel “The Outsiders” depicted the social class differences between the Greasers and the Soc’s. Of course, the Greasers needed to have slicked up hair. In the end, Soda Pop sacrifices himself so that the main character Pony Boy can go on to realize greater things. He utters the famous line “Stay Golden Pony Boy… Stay Golden…” The Outsiders is a book taught in a lot of high school English classes, and the Greaser look has even found its way into popular movies like Grease. So, it’s no wonder why so many people love to show up as a 1950s Greaser wearing a wig like this one.
The truth is, to get an authentic 1950s Greaser hair style like this, you have to use an obscene amount of hair gel or barbershop hair oil. Though the easy fix is to simply go with a styled wig like this one. It is made from synthetic fibers that look like real human hair, without the crazy high price tag that usually comes with an all-natural human hair wig.
