In 2008 courtesy of Amy Winehouse we saw allot of different versions and heights of the classic Beehive hairstyle! Above is sexy Beyonce with her high and very neat version of the “do” while at the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC.
Amy Winehouse in 2007 started this phase of extremely high updo’s. Of course this is a photo of her much much healthier days.
We also saw celebrities sport the beehive-esque hairstyles such as Mariska Hargitay, Aubrey O’Day and Mena Suvari to name just a few!
In general I would say this hairstyle is #10 on my list because of creativity and the versatility that goes with it!
The beehive is a woman’s hairstyle that resembles a beehive; it is also known as the B-52, for its similarity to the bulbous nose of the B-52 Stratofortress bomber. It originated in the USA in 1958 as one of a variety of elaborately teased and lacquered versions of “big hair” that developed from earlier pageboy and bouffant styles. The beehive style was highly popular throughout the 1960s, particularly in the United States and other Western countries, and remains an enduring symbol of 1960s kitsch
Mariska Hargitay graced us with her Beehive high updo hairstyle while attending the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards.
Mena Suvari graced us with her version of the ever changing beehive updo hairstyle at the Martini & Rossi and Mena Suvari Toast Andy Warhol on the Anniversay of his 80th Birthday, in NYC.
Regardless of the occasion these hairstyles have height and style all rolled into one with a Beehive hairstyle flair that many celebrities , hairstylists and people are attempting to mimic everywhere. Weddings, out on the town or even the Emmy awards this hairstyle can be made to really rock!
