Beehives are among the best and most beautiful vintage hairstyles out there. Made famous by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, a bouffant is the kind of updo that brings an instant touch of glamor to any look. If your style repertoire could use a little boost - literally and figuratively speaking - it could be just the 'do you've been looking for. Find out how to make the style your own by following the tutorial below!

Step one
After washing and towel-drying your hair, apply a volumizing mousse evenly throughout and blow-dry. Once everything is about 85% dry, flip your head upside down and finish drying. This will create extra root lift and give your hair plenty of body right from the get-go.

Step two
Leaving the front sections of hair and bangs alone (clip them out of the way if it's easier), spray the roots on the top and crown of your head with a volumizing spray.

Step three
Use a fine-tooth comb to tease the hair you just sprayed. Working in sections, push the hair back on itself and be as gentle as possible.

Step four
Lightly smooth a little un-teased hair over the top and smooth it into a half-up beehive. Secure at the back with bobby pins.

Step five
Gather the rest of your hair up into a chignon, rolling and pinning sections on top of each other in the same place you secured the beehive. Pop your headband on then mist generously with a strong-hold finishing spray.

All set!
