You Will Need:
- Dry shampoo (optional)
- Brush or comb
- Hair elastic (ponytail holder)
- Hair doughnut (optional)
- Kirby grips
- Hairspray (optional)
- Apply dry shampoo, if you have it, to give your hair some "guts" in the absence of backcombing. Section hair into two sections, front and back, from ear to ear - this doesn't have to be too neat, as no one will see this bit! Pull back section into a high ponytail.
- Twist ponytail into a bun - ideally, use a hair doughnut for added padding and shape (slip it over the ponytail, then wrap the ponytail around it section by section - I usually divide into 3 or 4 - pinning the ends underneath as you go).
- Begin to drape sections of hair from your "front" section up, over and around the bun (yes, this is the front view - you can use sectioning clips if you prefer more vision!). Pin securely at the base of the bun. I tend to start with the "back" of the front section, followed by the front and sides.
- Continue until the entire front section has been pinned - you can leave your fringe or front sections loose if you so desire. Mist with hairspray for extra hold.
- If you have very long hair like mine, you might be left with some loose ends - if you're very meticulous, you can try and "tuck" them in as you go - otherwise, do whatever you like with them - this time, I put mine in a braid, which I then coiled up and pinned beneath the beehive.
- Although you can leave as is, beehives look great with hair accessories - slides, Alice bands or a silk scarf for extra vintage va va voom (and/or to cover up not-so-neat sides!). Red lipgloss optional.
