Fall trend #4: The beehive

This fall, the 1960's beehive is back! According to The New York Times, the modern version is sexy and tousled, and the ears are covered for a pretty profile. (Here's a how-to.) Would you try it?

porter hovey said...

Lady! It' just too fab!! I've been trying to grow my hair out so we can accomplish this :)

joanna's foto said...

So pretty- I've always liked the way this style looks. So romantic :)
Now I can check how to make it- thank you!

Studio 13 said...

I'll have to revise this one for short hair... but you know what they say- "the bigger the hair, the closer to God"! {I'm from a small southern town... at least that's what they say}

Desiree Fawn said...

Definitely digging the new take on it!
So sweet -- I think I'd give it a go!

Michelle said...

Absolutely yes. Love this.

Laura said...

Just found my "updo" for the wedding I am in this weekend. Thank you!! :)

P.S: I'm running an amazing Hallelu hobo bag giveaway that I bet you'd want to check out! ;)

Tanna Paradis said...

Love, love, love this trend. There is another great 60's up-do in the new Stella Artois print ads.

Rachel said...

I love big hair! Using my Bump It makes it even easier. Love this look!

carina said...

I love it. But I'm not sure I would look as good as this girl:-D

Everton Terrace said...

I have always loved this look. I have crazy short hair so it's a no go for me but hope you all give it a go!

Katie said...

oh totally. i love the poof (just not too guidette).

amy said...

Would love to try this look-- think it's the next step, now that bump-its have been embraced by more than just Amy Winehouse and Flo in the Progressive commercials?

I actually love just about any retro look, except my hair is way too short to pull something like this off. Sad.

David Maez said...

See the clip below from Coffee & Cigarettes...the actress looks extremely sexy with a beehive...very retro chic but I'm sure an updated version would look great..

kid. said...

i would try it if my hair was longer than six inches :(

abigail said...

when I was about 5 I saw a photo of my mom with a beehive and asked her how she did that to her hair. She spent the next 3 hours setting, teasing and spraying my hair into a perfect beehive and it was awesome!

Well, awesome and kinda itchy.

the updated version looks fab.

Camilla Leila said...

yes yes yes. i absolutely would try it! its so french. so bardot. oh i love it.

dreamday said...

love it! so relaxed and romantic.

Diana Mieczan said...

My girl friend can pull off this look beautifully...I am really bad when it comes to making my hair all pretty and nice but I am so going to give it a try:)...There is always a first time,right?
Kisses,Joanna

Prippy Handbook said...

I adore this look. And I think it would look amazing on a bride!

Larysse Tavares said...

Sure! So gorgeous! :)

Allison said...

LOVE it! Though I'm from Texas where big hair is always in style :)

Tara Jeles said...

I do this now...i LOVE my hair like this...retro is awesome..my mom rocked it back in the 60's and I'm grateful i inherited her crazy thick hair..perfect for teasing.
that was a great how to link as well.

Michelle Elaine said...

im always so worried about teasing my color treated locks :/ im gonna try it though maybe just not as big? or heavily teased

KeepItFvncy,
M.E.

esdelope said...

I'm loving this look - it makes me feel very Bridgitte Bardot!

Becca

That's Not My Age said...

Love that hair - I'm growing mine so I can have a beehive, though I'll probably end up looking like some sad old sixties throw-back!

A Day That is Dessert said...

This look is all over Sept Vogue - love it, as it reminds me of pictures of my mother in high school and when I was a little girl. Not sure I'll try it though...

PoetessWug said...

Yikes! I'd like to say yes, because if I could do big afros in the 70s I should be able to do this! But truthfully....No. I'll leave this one for people more adventurous than me! ^_^

A Casa da VĂ¡ said...

I love love the hair and make up from the 60's - would love to give it a try!

Katie said...

I like it! Not sure if I'd be able to pull it off though. Maybe a moderated version... thanks for sharing the "how to"!

mara said...

i love the bee hive!!! angelina jolie pulls it off so well!!! thanks for sharing!!!

LOVE THIS LOOK

LEAH said...

ciupa said...

mad men dixit! adorable.

Kate {domestikatedlife} said...

I adore this look! So chic!

Taylor Sterling said...

I am so into the bee hive. I have been doing a lot of posts on big hair, but I have yet to try a real bee hive look! I think I need to!

Joanna Goddard said...

abigail, that is awesome!!

Sweet Freak said...

Yet another hair trick I'll try (probably unsuccessfully) to master...

Cassandra Marie said...

I totally would if I didn't have curly hair haha...hey maybe it would work anyways...?

mylifereinvented said...

I'm not sure about this. There are some people who could rock this look, but if I tried it I'm sure I would end up looking like Snookie.

Whimsy Being said...

I would love to don this! I'll have to give it many practice runs as I fear it could easily turn the Snookie route...eeks

molly said...

I've been rocking the beehive for months, and feel no shame in that, (at least not at present).

Audrey said...

I don't think it ever went OUT of style! It's really adorable.

Melissa Blake said...

joanna, if you try it, do post photos!! :)

Anonymous said...

I love this! She looks beautiful!

Lawn Party... said...

i love this look! it is refreshing for fall!

the chirpy bird said...

Unfortunately, for me it's a resounding no! I'm going to leave the beehive look to elvira, the B52's and more recently snookie! haha

xo tash

RedDirtRevival said...

HUGE fan of this. I'm wearing it a lot lately! Along with a messy bun- flawless!

Joanna Goddard said...

molly, i'm so impressed!

Christina said...

Can't wait to try this with the 60s style dress I just purchased.

Giulia said...

I'm wearing this on the 16th & 17th to events. Going to have it done first by hairdresser because the last time I did it, you want to talk about a rat's nest?

To those who think it smacks of snookiness,etc....think of a little,eentsy lower version & Julie Christie. That's why my hairdresser brought it up when I had the Times in my lap & she saw the pix.

If you don't dress in "costume" & don't shriek nonsense at people, it can be very cool.

cheers

Dana said...

Unfortunately I think Snookie has forever ruined any type of bee hive...cute or not. Aw Snookie - What. What. What are you doing with that bump-it!

kater said...

I wear a modified bee-hive most days to work (in a pastry shop!), a little smaller, but still soft, and I tie it off with a droopy bow :D

Angela said...

It's darling!
But I can't stand all that gunk in my hair!

ELECTRIC FRINGE said...

a calmer, more tasteful Snooki!! JK it looks beautiful and I may try it this weekend.

xo, kristin

Shannon of ** Happiness Is...** said...

I do the bee hive all the time! I even went so far as to getting those Bump-Its (they don't work). Teasing is the only way to go :) xo

Rachael said...

I would definitely try it...so pretty!

amynicole said...

I'm loving every fall trend thus far! Only, it's sort of hard to follow any trend here in Hawaii. If only running around in your swimsuit with salted curly locks could be a trend!

Alyssa / A Muse A Day said...

I saw a girl rocking this look on my way to class this morning and surprisingly loved it.

Emma said...

i love it. always have. always will. but i don't think i could do it to this extreme.

The Girlie Blog said...

It's such a sexy retro look. Yes! Of course I'd try it! The only problem is I don't know how to do it :O(

Olga said...

I actually really really DONT like this look. I won't be sporting it.

Alejandra Ramos said...

I love beehives! I actually wear them all the time for special events. (I'm into all kinds of retro hairstyles--victory rolls, the flip, etc.) I kind of wish it WEREN'T coming back in style...I dont' want everyone else looking like me! ;)

Anonymous said...

Alright so NY Times thinks it's making a comeback, but visit most smaller mid-west cities and it will be apparent that those with unconventional "good taste" have been rocking this doo for a long time. They also seem to don overly tanned skin and low-rise jeans. just sayin'.

Notes from Holly St. said...

i love the beehive...so sexy and chic!

Rachel at The Inspired House.org said...

Definitely been sporting one lately!

Jessica said...

This look is so flattering. . .I can't wait until my hair is long enough to pull up again!

jociegal said...

I love the beehive look and totally plan on doing the look.

Clare Lennon said...

Hmm.... maybe a small one! I prefer the natural and loose look.

The Mel B said...

This makes me wish I had long hair.

Jayne said...

I love it! Do you watch Mad Men, Joanna? Oh how I love that show. =)

Elissa, ebb & flow said...

oh i love it! i think i'll give it a try and channel my inner Mad Men. something has got to work with this unruly mane, so my hope is on this look.

Stickers and Donuts said...

this reminds me of the jersey shore...

Anonymous said...

No! It looks like hay...
natural soft glowing like yours is a keeper trend :-)

kelly ann said...

believe it or not, i wore my hair kind of like this the other day! maybe not so poufy on top, but if my hair is on the dirty side - this is such an easy style to pull off. i love it, and i think you would look fabulous - totally try it! :)

lady warfield said...

Love the beehive. This just makes me wanna grow my hair out again!
Thanks for sharing!

Emilia Jane said...

I've been wearing my hair like this forever so it's always been in style for me! :)

zink said...

I can't wait to try this!
Thanks for the how-to link.

If I looked like her, then yes I would try it lol

Sleepy Moon Design said...

I like her hair... but without the beehive on the back. I love the tousled pony tale look... not so much the beehive for me.

KiraLynn said...

It would be so fun to try, but I can't even curl my own hair so I know I couldn't handle that.

Kat said...

I love this. I would do it in a minute.

http://kathleenjackson.blogspot.com/

Mikaela said...

totally jersey-licious!!!

Lulu said...

hah! i would totally try it if my hair were a bit longer...like ten inches or so longer....
it's pretty!

spoonful said...

I love that!

vanessa joie said...

I LOVE that hair. So sixties/Bardot. If only I wasn't cursed with curly hair.

LAURA!!! said...

oh yes that looks fantastic!!!

fleur_delicious said...

adorable! I won't be trying it out, though, as I just had my own hair bobbed for fall.

AnastasiaC said...

gorgeous!! im thinking of doing a 'mad men' themed for my upcoming40th birthday bash...this is a style that would be perfect for my hairdo!

elizabeth said...

i love this look! unfortunately, i could never pull it off. not only is it just not my style BUT my hair could NEVER have that much volume. now, the flat and lifeless look, my hair is great at that ... never disappoints :)

cossora said...

I love this 60's look too!
got long hair, not so dfficult to build them up!
