The Rebel – this tag has been placed on such stars as James Dean and Elvis Presley, denoting their roles in movies and entertainment as Juvenile Delinquents and trend breakers.
The sideburn fad gained popularity in the 1950s as “juvenile delinquents” wore them along with leather jackets and D.A. haircuts. This popularity eventually declined because they became an added grooming task, which most young men were unwilling to undertake. Sideburns now make a comeback approximately every 20 years.
