Friday October 5 2012.

I love meeting creative people but it is always with a pang of jealousy, I wish I could do what they do.  Today I have asked the astonishingly talented hair and make up artist Gemma Sutton to share some of the tricks of the trade with a DIY Bridal hairstyle just for you Bijou brides.  A Bridal Beehive.  So hopefully we’ll all be able to do what Gemma does!

Without further ado, here’s Gemma.

Brides too be……  Its official – The Beehive is back!!!  Wear yours tall and proud.  Keep the structure neat, high and solid and you’ll be turning plenty of heads.

Here’s how to create the perfect bridal beehive.

STEP ONE
Prepare the hair by sectioning off the back part of the hair, leaving the sides free.
STEP TWO
Pin the back section up out of the way for now.  We’ll leave the ‘hiving’ to last.
STEP THREE
Take the side sections of your hair and roll inwards to form the french pleat.  Be sure to use lots of hair pins to hold in place.

STEP FOUR
Backcomb the front section, the more backcombing the bigger the beehive.  Once you’ve sufficiently backcombed, gently brush back the front of the hair and fix using a strong hairspray.  Ta dah the perfect bridal beehive.
