Vintage Hair 20 Jul 2007
Still of a woman with a beehive from the motion picture Hairspray
The return of the beehive

As the film Hairspray is released, there seems to be a boom in the high maintenance hair of the past. We explore the heady heights of the beehive and other vintage hairstyles. Are the days of wash’n’go finally giving way to the big, glamorous “do”?

Jane Little is joined by Retro hair specialist Nina Butkovich-Budden and her can of hairspray.
