Today, we look at the range of Beehive wigs that are available as we were mentioning Dusty Springfield and her distinctive beehive hairstyle yesterday. The style is key to the look and yet it is not one that is easily achieved, even if you have the time, expertise and, of course, hair. Wigs are the obvious way forward, but more than most, it is vitally important that your towering tresses stay anchored, so in addition to the wig itself, ensure that you have a good wig cap available for anchorage. That said, the beehive offers so many options, helping with everything from your Hepburn Holly Golightly (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) impression, to the exaggerated bouffants seen in ‘Hairspray’ and other 1950s/1960s-based musicals. There are even horror references, with both, Elvira, Mistress of Darkness and The Bride of Frankenstein being big beehive fans.
Most costumes that require a beehive wig also tend to need big eyelashes to help to complete, Props & Frocks stock a wide range of false eyelashes in all sort of colours
We recommend that beehive wigs are stored on a polystyrene head to help them to keep their shape.
