To create the volume required for the look, you need to start by teasing the hair. Teasing has been a hair hack to get flat hair to really pop and look full!

The hairstyles from the past are coming back; people have been enjoying the 70s curls and blowouts. The curtain bangs were in for a bit too, and now we’re going back to the beehive. Here are some of the many ways to style your beehive.

1. 60s Beehive

You can do the classic 60s beehive with a bun in the back. Then, you can either keep it clean with your hair out of your face.

You can also pull two tendrils and split them in the middle or even sweep it to one side. So you can rock the classic look for a day at work or even go out to a fancy dinner!

2. Half Up

You can turn it into a really low ponytail with a high beehive. You’ll still need to turn half of your hair into a beehive, so you might want to grab extensions for a fuller ponytail!

5. Headband

You can use a headband or scarf to accentuate your beehive and give you a boho look. You can also try adding a ribbon around your head and turn it into a sleek look!

You’ll need to secure the look with some hairspray if you want it to last all night long. So just pick your style and get teasing!
