The Traditional Beehive Hairstyle

The beehive hairstyle surfaced in the late 50’s and early 60’s. At that time it took hours at the salon to achieve. It required a wet roller set, time under the dryer, and tons of teasing for control and staying power. Today’s version is easier to produce, although you may still require the assistance of a hairdresser or a talented friend.

This retro version of the updo is sleek and sophisticated. It is the perfect accessory for an elegant prom dress or stunning wedding gown.

The style shown here is the traditional smooth and sleek beehive. It is easiest to create with shoulder length hair that is all one length but also works in hair with a few layers.

End notes:
If your hair is very fine or is layered, tease it lightly all over. Spray it with flexible hold hairspray and lightly smooth it into the style.
