Now it's Louis Vuitton
As far as I'm concerned, it's two strikes and you're in - THE BEEHIVE IS BACK!
The last time I attempted a beehive was at my husbands 40th birthday party. (I am not prepared to tell you how many years ago that was). I had printed out instructions from the Internet (yes, therefore pre-YouTube tutorials, that's how long ago it was) and after spending an inordinate amount of time getting no-where, my mother-in-law managed to tame my tresses into a perfect piled high ensemble in about three-minutes flat. She explained that back in the day she wore a beehive to work everyday (oh if only that was an option now, but I fear that would prove a career limiting move in my conservative corporate environment down the big end of town).
Back to the present, I have a wedding coming up on Friday, so I attempted a trial run this weekend. I have negative 20 minutes to do the trail run (translation, I was already supposed to be somewhere else, I did mention I'm always late), and I took the advice to not wash your hair on the day, but really, my hair was in real need of a wash - both of which I believe contributed to my beehive turning into a quiff (an a fairly tame one at that), so I threw on a rocker t-shirt and ran out the door.
And here's Dusty sporting an original model bee hive:
Time: 15 minutes (not washed)
Tools: Pin tail comb, boar bristle brush, bobby pins, hair tie
Product: Hairspray and lots of it. In retrospect, should have used mousse first.
Comments: If you're new to this, watch a few youtube tutorials and give youself plenty of time. Based on my mother-in-law's comments, this could become an actual school-run do, but not without serious practice under your belt first.
Went au natural, did warn you I'm quite lazy in the make-up department.
Top: Route Sixty Six T-Shirt, probably purchased at Devil Kitty
Jeans: Diesel Jeans bought years ago
Sneakers: from Jigsaw, again years ago
Comment: Yes, it's true, I rarely shop, all my clothes are old.
