Trending: Bouffants & Beehives

I cannot get enough of the bouffants and beehives popping up on Pinterest!  I have even attempted my own modern version of the 50’s bouffant look and am obsessed.  

While the 50’s Mad Men style has already been the inspiration of many fun vintage parties and weddings, we are now seeing a trend in modernizing this big hair look into an everyday style.

The beauty of this look is its ability to create the illusion of a longer thinner face by creating so much height.  Similar to how pointed pumps visually elongate the body, as do beehives visually elongate the face.  Even besides the aesthetic benefits, they are a fun new hair trend for all hair lengths!  

Below is cute YouTube tutorial by Cherry Dollface on how to make your own modern bouffant!
