Beehive hairstyles

Before Amy Winehouse made the beehive her signature coif, Chicago hairstylist, Margaret Vinci Heldt, crafted the look for Modern Beauty Shop magazine in the 60’s. The beehive is part of the big hair revolution and is favored by brides who want to add drama to their look or women who are going for a flashback hairstyle for formal events.

A top-heavy updo such as Jenna Ushkowitz’s modern beehive is a great hairstyle for fuller faces. A lifted top will make your face look slimmer.

A beehive hairstyle is always a delight to see. It has a dash of eccentricity but is still unmistakably elegant. Instead of doing a centrally even beehive that will make the Coneheads swoon, Archie Panjabi opted for a slightly tilted version. Not too shabby, we say. Create a large bun under that pouf to make your beehive extra large. Tease your hair gently from the roots and use a hairspray with a super strong hold to make the coif last.

Well, here’s a funky way to modernize a retro updo! Add a few chunks of temporary blue streaks to your hairstyle using Bumble and Bumble’s Spraychalk in Cobalt. It dries quickly and is not messy. Just create a few sections (1” thick) and spray away! Tease the hair at the crown then loosely twist it vertically and secure with pins. Lift the hair at the top some more for a bigger poof.
