Beehive Tutorial:

Step 1: Prepare your hair

  1. Start with clean, dry, and detangled hair. You can add some texturizing spray or volumizing mousse for added grip and lift.

Step 2: Tease your hair

  1. Take a section of hair from the crown area and hold it straight up.
  2. Using a fine-tooth comb or teasing comb, gently backcomb the section towards the roots. Repeat this process with smaller sections, gradually building volume.

Step 3: Create a ponytail

  1. Gather all the teased hair, including the sections from the sides, into a high ponytail. Secure it with a hair elastic.

Step 4: Shape the beehive

  1. Hold the ponytail straight up and begin to gently backcomb the entire length to create more volume.
  2. Once the desired height is achieved, carefully smooth the outer layer of hair using a comb, shaping it into a rounded mound or beehive shape.

Step 5: Secure the beehive

  1. Use bobby pins to secure the beehive shape, inserting them vertically into the hair to anchor it to the scalp.
  2. Make sure the pins are hidden and the beehive looks smooth and polished.

Step 6: Finishing touches

  1. Smooth any loose strands or flyaways with hairspray and gently pat them into place.
  2. Optionally, you can accessorize the beehive with decorative hairpins, headbands, or scarves to enhance its vintage charm.

Now you have a stylish beehive hairstyle that exudes retro elegance and sophistication. Whether you’re attending a special event or want to add a touch of vintage flair to your everyday look, the beehive is a versatile and timeless choice.
