Hi, this is Katrina Zarate from Funsie Studios. Today, we're going to be going over how to properly roll up your sleeve like a greaser. So, if you're going out to a special function, Halloween party or if you just like the greaser style, this is how you're going to do it. The first thing you're going to do is pick the proper t-shirt. The best things are the ones that are little form-fitting; ones that are solid in color. You want to kind of move away from the patterns or the bright colors. White is a great choice or blacks or some of the darker colors, like I'm wearing here. The next thing you're going to look at is the length of the sleeve. So, you want to use a sleeve that's a little bit longer, still a short sleeve, but a little bit longer on the arm. Avoid those cap sleeves like this one here where they're pretty short; so, it's going to be really hard to get enough roll in there. Once you have that on, you're going to go ahead and do your first roll. Sometimes it helps to have a buddy do this, 'cause it can be a little bit tricky to get it even all the way around. If you're by yourself, I bet you can figure it out and do it like I am here. Once it's even and straighten out all the way under, you're ready for your next roll. So, do at least one more. The important thing here is that it shows your bicep. The greaser style is all about showing your muscle tone or if you have any tattoos or how tough you are, so make sure you have that displayed. Once you have that second roll, it should be snugged enough if you have enough of a tight-fitting shirt to fit any kind of phone or anything else you want to stick in there, even a comb, if you're really going for that greaser style. And that is how you roll up your sleeve like a greaser. Thanks for watching; this is Katrina from Funsie Studios.
