Perhaps one of the best and well-known Amy Winehouse hairstyles is the beehive. The bouffant styling was a craze in 1950s-1960s, but the backcombing work seems to have won back the stage ever since 2010s. Indeed, backcombing is a new old hairstyle.
Styling the Beehive
Unlike the bouffant styling of other Hollywood celebrities, the late Amy Winehouse’s black beehive is grungier. Forget the classic and glamor hairstyle because this time your voluminous backcomb is messier and hipper. Here are the steps.
- Split up your hair in two sections, on top and bottom.
- Spray the top part with styling spray and backcomb the underneath, so you can get masses of just light volume. Keep doing the backcombing until you get the desired rigid and large volume.
- Turnover the bottom teased part, push forward, and then pin it. You will get the beehive height. The more you push the teased section forward, the more dramatic look you will get.
- When you already have the desired look, pin the beehive in place. You will need many bobby pins. Usually, the thicker type of your hair, the more bobby pins you need.
- Comb sticking up hairs back to the beehive and then spray the entire head. Be generous when using your spray because you want your hair to stand strong and move less.
The Hair of Late Amy Winehouse
Although the singer has long gone, her hair keeps inspiring lots of women today. Actually, Amy Winehouse hairstyles are numerous, but the big retro or beehive is the one she used to look in almost all the time. She also looked great in 2008 with her curly perm, which I must say it gave her a very different look. One way or another, you need to know first your type of hair and then pick up the suitable hairstyle.
