The inspiration for Kevin Murphy’s MSFW ‘Emerging Designers’ look was the photographs taken by Karl Weinberger, a Swiss photographer who rose to popularity in the 1950s. This rendition puts a fashion-forward twist on the beehive style that marked the most iconic trend of his time.
PRIME with ANTI.GRAVITY.SPRAY
PREP with SESSION.SPRAY
FINISH with POWDER.PUFF
PRIME damp hair with ANTI.GRAVITY.SPRAY and dry in directionally.
Create a horseshoe section on top. Section from behind ears to the crown and clip away. Brush the back into a high ponytail at the top of the section and fold down. This is a concealed ponytail to reduce bulk and support the style.
Take the left side and sew tight to back of the head. Tease the roots with a TAIL.COMB and back brush ends with your STYLING.BRUSH to form a beehive shape.
PREP section-by-section with SESSION.SPRAY as you go to form the shape until you get to the last section. This allows the shape to have a soft finish.
Once complete, gather hair on the left back, twist low, and stitch down using your SEWING.KIT.
Take excess hair, fold over 3 fingers to create a form and stitch down. Allow the ends to be free. This gives a scarf like effect to the ends of the hair and takes the stiffness out of a beehive shape.
FINISH with POWDER.PUFF to create the light and airy texture.
