Analyze the Hair

As your client arrives at the salon, you will want to ask them about their hair care over the past few days. Usually, it’s easier to create more volume if the hair is a little dirty. You can also tell your client to come into the salon with hair that hasn’t been washed.


Prepare the Hair

After understanding the current state of your client’s hair, you’ll need to brush it and remove any knots. Starting with smooth hair will help as you section it and begin to create volume.


Section the Hair

Depending on the kind of beehive style your client wants, you must section the hair accordingly. For example, a client may want a half up, half down beehive of an entire beehive updo.

Create Volume

For a half up and half down beehive, you will need to begin teasing the upper part of the hair. You can break the top portion of the hair into sections if it makes it easier to create volume. For an updo, you will need to tease all the hair with a comb, starting at the root. Breaking up the hair into sections to tease can also be helpful.


Smooth Out Teased Hair

Once you have finished teasing the hair that will be part of the beehive, you can brush the hair back gently, starting at the root, to smooth out the hair. Be careful not to brush out your teasing.


Form the Hive

Once you have smoothed out the hair, you will begin to form the beehive. Depending on the style your client is hoping to achieve, you can leave out a few strands of hair as you form the hive for face-framing layers. As you begin pulling the smooth hair over the teased hair, form the hair into a little bump. You will need to secure the hair with some bobby pins. Avoid securing the hair to your client’s head. Instead, lightly pin the hair to the teased portion. This will hold the hive up and keep it from falling.


Touch Up the Sides and the Back

For an updo look, you will need to comb and wrap the client’s sides and form it into the hive. You will also clean up the back and work the hair into the hive to create an updo.


Spray and Comb

An important part of perfecting and ensuring that the beehive stays intact is the last final combing touches and applying texture hair products. Comb any loose flyaways and apply hairspray. Get to know your client’s hair beforehand and ask how their hair performs with certain products. Some hair types can be weighed down by hairspray while others aren’t. It’s important to know the right amount of product to use with such a voluminous style.


Your clients are going to love this modern take on the beehive. Don’t forget to give your clients thorough advice on how to upkeep the beehive, as well as key product recommendations if they are planning on it lasting for more than one day!
