And there's only one possible way to end the challenge on a high note- BIG HAIR!!
So girls, here the rules and tools;
1. must be BIG
2. must be 60s
3. use whatever you like!
I went for the traditional beehive.
Teamed with a BIG floral lurex-trimmed maxi, of course!
I'm very happy with the height I achieved, and I did the whole hairstyle and makeup from scratch in less than half an hour.
As you can see below I couldn't get the back done by myself- a bit too difficult. Ideally, say, if I was doing this style for an event, I'd pin the lower section up neatly so it meets the top half.
The backcombing was quick and easy. I found it was more effective if I did it in small sections. I left extra sections across the front, then when I was finished the beehive part, simply took the extra hair at the front and brushed it (fairly) neatly back over the beehive and gave a light hairspray.
It almost looks like a wig from the back, but look below and you'll see it's certainly not!
Giving my hair the death stare- you WILL stay up!!
Even though I today couldn't finish the style off properly, I'm satisfied with the result because I've shown myself how easy a beehive is so I know I can do one should the occasion present itself.
On a final note, thanks so much to those who have participated in and attempted the hair challenge with me. I've taught myself a few new tricks and I'm sure they will come in handy before the year is out.
