1960's Beehive Hair Tutorial!

Hello there everyone! Last week I did a little experimentation with my hair in a 1960's beehive do: something I've never done before. A few of you requested how to do the hairstyle, so here is a simple tutorial to help you all or guide you in the right direction to creating this hair style!

First step: The materials you will need for this hairstyle are all simple, inexpensive, and items you probably have already! All you need are some bobby pins (more or less depending on how thick your hair is), a round bristle brush, and some hair spray.

Second Step: It's actually better to create this hairstyle with second day or slightly dirty hair because the little bit of natural grease and dirt will help the style hold better and give you more natural volume. I also found that putting your hair in hot rollers before creating this style helps, as well because they give natural looking volume and add a feminine touch. For this tutorial I just had my hair straight though which works perfectly fine, too!

*Have hair that you can't go without washing everyday? Try dry shampoo that takes the grease away and allows you to clean your hair without actually washing it!

Third Step: Take a section of the very top of your hair to create the 'beehive' part of the style. You can take as much or as little hair as you would like, and obviously the more hair you take the bigger your hive will be. Tie the bottom part of your hair that you're not using with a twist tie in a small bun.

Fourth Step: Take the top part of your hair that you sectioned off and flip your head upside down. Begin to back comb the hair from ends to the roots in a somewhat rough stroking motion so to give the hair volume. Do this in all sections of the hair (left and right sides, middle, ends) so as to get as much volume as you can.

Fifth Step: Take the backcombed hair and flip you head back upwards. Gather the hair so that it makes a natural looking poof and smooth down the top with your bristle brush. Be careful not to brush to hard so as not to damage the shape but to smooth the fly aways. It may take a bit of playing with the hair to get the exact volume and shape that you want.

Sixth Step: Take your newly formed beehive and place bobby pins in to secure the style. Push up on the poof with the pins tightly to ensure more volume and a tight hold. (And make sure to pin the middle of the poof unlike me!)

Seventh Step: Let down the small bun that is holding the bottom part of your hair and brush it out in the desired hair style that you want. Hairspray your beehive as little or much as you want to take away any fly aways or to ensure hold.

Eighth Step: The first seven steps cover the very basic steps in order to make your beehive. After these steps are done, additional tweaks can be done to make your beehive your very own! I like to push my bangs to the opposite side of my face to give them more volume and smoothness, and adding a cute retro accessory is always the perfect touch, too! You can also pull back the hair that's not up into your beehive in a bun in the back of your head if you would like to cover up the bobby pins.

Wa la! Pretty simple, no? If you have any questions, tips, suggestions, or anything feel free to let me know! Also if any of decided to try this out I would absolutely love if you would send me a picture via email so I can see how your style turned out!
With much love, Lauren.

Charlotte Cantillon (Crowley) said...

oh wow, Lauren, this is awesome! I can't wait to try this!
I've wanted to do this style for a while but you make it look so easy- i've also been looking for a style for my inbetween washing days because I am a hair-washing aholic and know I should leave a day inbetween.

also, thank you for your comment on my blog. I'm not sure what I did with my photos to make them come out that way but I'm glad you like them! I'm glad my comment meant a lot to you too. You really are a beautiful girl, but I know how hard it is to believe that no matter how many times people tell you.

I think that everything published was actually very logical.
But, think on this, what if you added a little content?
I am not suggesting your information isn't solid, but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "1960's Beehive Hair Tutorial!
" is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
