 Just the other day I happened to see a woman walking down the street with a beehive atop her head.I said to myself "whoa awsome" then " how'd she do that?" I was hoping this post would answer my question and have some show stopping photos of honeys with hives.

I used that video tut to do mine, and it does look great when finished and isn't that hard either  Grin

The Amy Winehouse style Beehive isn't really my thing, but I do like the beehive style so I use a slightly adapted way of doing it. Something that you can do in the morning without it taking you as long as that video does! Let's face it, it's not like we have several hours to do this hairstyle every day!

I simply section off a piece of hair at the front and kind of keep that aside. Then, I backcomb a back section of hair  and use a fair amount of spray. Then all you need to do is use some of the section you swept aside and clip it over the section that has been backcombed to create the 'elevated' look. It's a really easy style to achieve in this way and because it's minimal it definitely is a hairstyle you can wear out and about all the time. Another great thing about doing the beehive in this modern way is that you can really go crazy with hair accessories. I love using a ribbon and tying it at the top of the hive!

Here is a link to a video that shows you how to get the beehive look without all the backcombing that damages your hair. It was fairly easy to accomplish I used it for Halloween when I was Marie Antoinette. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVoxsRmZrC8

I work in a professional theatre in wigs, and that is basically how we do it. Teasing is SO bad. It breaks the hair, plus you don't need as much hairspray(which drys the hair)

To do a full beehive, you just pin/pile the rest of your hair up.

I LOVE a beehive, if only because one of my greatest goals is to become Patsy Stone.  When I do a hive, I usually keep it small.  Backcombing is murder on my fine hair, so I got a large kitchen sponge and cut a hive-y shape out of it.  I build my hair around that, which takes a lot less backcombing and a lot less time.  I usually keep it pretty small, sort of like Rose Tyler in Doctor Who / Idiot's Lantern.  (http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/gallery/s2_07gallery/800/rose_doc.jpg). 

Here's a pic, though it's one of my first and was done without the sponge, so it's not as smooth.
