The 60’s Beehive Hairstyle

The other day I thought I’d attempt doing a 60’s Beehive hairstyle and surprisingly it turned out quite successfully! This season there is a nod to the 60’s trend throughout clothing, accessories, makeup and hair! Moschino’s Spring Collection is a great example of a runway heavily inspired by the sixties with key trends such as monochrome and bold pop’s of colour. I personally know a lot about the 60’s time period as it was my theme for my GSCE Textiles project where I made a 60’s inspired cape jacket. The beehive is one of the quintessential hairstyles of the swinging sixties where volume is created on the crown of the head through back-combing the hair and using masses of hairspray in many cases. The hugely influential style icon Audrey Hepburn was one of first to showcase this hairstyle and it is now seen as to be one of her trademarks! Many celebrities from the current day have additionally utilised the beehive style but have often put their own personal swing on it. These celebrities include Beyonce, Alexa Chung and Zooey Deschanel. I hope you like my attempt of this fabulous 60’s hairstyle and there is a picture of it in the centre of the collage with lots of pictures surrounding it! Enjoy!
