If you are looking for a bold dramatic updo then you can’t go wrong with the 1960’s inspired beehive hairstyle. The beehive is one of the original elaborately voluminous teased big hairstyles. The beehive works for every face shape; texture and you don’t need long flowing hair to recreate this style. The beehive simply needs enough hair to create the traditional beehive look with a conical shape on the top of the head and slightly backwards pointing. There is a lot of variety with the beehive so take inspiration from these celebs that have rocked the beehive.
