The Buzz is all about the Beehive! Yes, that hairdo we all made fun of in our friends’ older sisters’ yearbook pictures is making a fashion resurgence, according to the L.A. Times
THE beehive is back, proving that the ’60s trend of summer starts at the top. But this ain’t your mother’s beehive. And lucky for us, today’s spin on the inflated ‘do requires less backcombing than the one that made Aqua Net a household name. This less-sticky version is a little more relaxed — think Bridgette Bardot’s teased but tousled look, not Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl.”
didn’t sport a beehive; but from the time I was a toddler until the mid 70’s, she’d go to the Le Coiffeure beauty salon every Saturday for a “shampoo and style” into a shorter, slightly curlier version of this “Bouffant” hairdo (especially in the early 60’s, many women my mom’s age idolized JK and wanted to emulate her style). She’d sometimes sleep with toilet paper wrapped around her head to hold the style (in the dark days before the electric curling iron for touchups) but no matter what, no brush or water would touch her head in between salon visits. She still curls her hair all over each day with the curling iron.
Me, I’m into no-muss, no-fuss hair these days and have returned to my hairstyle roots: a Pixie cut. I have no patience for drying or styling my baby-fine, straight hair on a daily basis (and even if it did, my hair won’t hold a style for more than a couple of hours), and can’t imagine adopting something so high maintenance.
