The Sixties made a mark on history that has lasted throughout the intervening decades. This standard of sixties' symbolism is, of course, the beehive hairdo. Crafted from a head full of long hair, the beehive is a style that is often considered more sculpture than "coif".
Stable beehives require a measure of body and wave in the medium. The hair is backcombed and fluffed into a voluminous mass that is then wrapped into a vertical swirl on top of the head and smoothed on the exterior for a cultivated and cultured look.
