How to do A Beehive: Up and Down


Ever wondered how to get the 60s classic, the beehive?  Well our expert hair team have come up with a simple how to guide so you can get to looks in no time! Whether you want a more relaxed look like Kim Kardashian’s loose beehive or if you want to go for a more formal beehive up do, read on to find out how!

  1. Start off by using a fine bristle brush to back comb the hair at the top of your crown. Use a strong hold hairspray to hold the beehive at the roots.  Start back combing at the roots and then go almost to the end of the strand for some real lift.
  2. Separate a centre or side parting in the middle of your head just 2cm in from your face and start smoothing sections of hair down with a brush.
  3. Start pulling the beehive into place with your hands.
  4. Secure the beehive by twisting the section of hair over on itself to make sure it won’t move 
  5. Start pinning it in place with kirby grips and voila you have a beehive a la Kim Kardashian.
