How to do a Modern Beehive Hairstyle



Prep hair

Boost your hair’s volume by washing with Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Conditioner. This pair leaves your hair looking and feeling soft, nourished, and full of natural volume.


Protect your hair

This style requires the help of a curling iron, so to make sure your strands are protected from the high temperature of your styling tool, use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray. This will shield your tresses, seal in shine, and help reduce frizz.


Start curling

Curl 2-3 inch sections of your hair using a curling iron to add bounce and body to your style.


Add texture

Spray the top part of your hair with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to prep it for the teasing, which is the next step.



This is the key step to creating your beehive hairstyle. Using a comb, tease your hair (and tease it good!) to create a tangled pile at the top of your head.


Smoothen it out

Lightly comb the outer surface for a smooth, polished look.


Create a half-up half-down hairstyle

Use the teased section of your hair to create a half-up. Secure with bobby pins.


All done!

Get ready to turn heads with your modern beehive hairstyle. It’s perfect for retro-themed parties and formal events when you need a fab hairstyle to match your dress.
