From Rugged Rebellion Editorials to Retro Hair Revivals

 - May 13, 2012
The rebel without a cause is still making a name for himself even decades after his death, as people continue to sport the James Dean style.

The handsome young actor died at a young age, but his legacy remains. The Greasers' style from 'The Outsiders' takes inspiration from the dreamy actor. The hair, dangling cigarette, leather jacket and bad boy attitude can be widely seen in fashion photo shoots. The infamous quiff hairstyle he sports is still a popular hair-do today.

There's something very attractive about the bad boy look and James Dean definitely sets the tone for that style. Although the rebel is gone, this collection of James Dean-inspired looks is an example of keeping up the badass way.
