Sophie Ellis Bextor wore this gorgeous '60s beehive-style to the opening of Jacques pop-up boutique in London yesterday. It's less slick that the Prada style but a tiny bit more polished than the teased Vogue Italia version and is rather perfect for afternoon tea with the girls. Here, Brad Ngata tells you how to get the look . . .
STEP 1: This beehive-esque look is all about having the right texture to keep the hairstyle current. Use a mousse on washed hair and then blast dry—flip your head over and blast dry again to ensure extra volume that will be long-lasting.
STEP 2: Next, set hair in hot rollers or use a large barrel curling iron. Do NOT brush through the curls.
STEP 3: Separate your hair between your forehead and crown and clip it to the side—this section will be styled last.

Ensure you are bringing each section up and over the previous section, to make sure you get the necessary height required for a beehive.
STEP 5: Finally, take the bulk of the separated section and finger comb over the 'hive, securing with more bobby pins. Lightly iron the remaining front section and finger comb to make it polished but still a little edgy. Finish with lots of hairspray.
