Which women's hairstyle was popular in the 60s?
The 60s were a time for impressive, extravagant, and sometimes outrageous hairstyles. One such remarkable hairstyle was the beehive. It is where the hair is piled up on top, resembling a beehive, thus the name.
The hairstyle was invented by a stylist from Chicago named Margaret Vinci Heldt in 1960. She specifically designed the hairstyle for a fez-like hat she owned. The beehive became popular instantaneously, as it capitalized on the big hair (bouffant) trend of that time. The beehive can also last a long time, saving time for women.
