Vintage Beauty Parlor
The beehive can be as vertiginous as you please, depending on the occasion and your mood. In the 1960s women often slept in their hives, wrapping them in a scarf to protect them and simply smoothing them down in the morning.

You Will Need

  • How to style a beehive hairstyle. Beehive Yourself - Step 1
    Step 1

    Using the end of a pin-tail comb, divide your hair in half, separating the front from the back. Do this by taking a section across your head from your crown to the top of each ear, one side at a time. Try to keep your sectioning neat, as this will help you to achieve symmetry in your finished hairstyle. Brush the front section forward neatly and clip it on top of the front of your head.

    Place the hair donut centrally on the crown of your head, over the parting, and pin it in place all the way round to ensure it is held securely in position.

    Gently backcomb the front section of your hair from the roots to midway along its length. With the brush, lightly sweep the front section of your hair over the donut so it is covered. For a slightly softer look, leave out your fringe/bangs, if you have one, which you can style as desired – for instance, brush
    it to one side, pin it or curl it.
