Beehive hairdo / B-52 bomber

How about this piece of trivia?  The beehive hairdo was also known as the B-52 for its resemblance in silhouette to the conical nose of the B-52 bomber airplane.

Stars like Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren made this style popular throughout hollywood and salon’s across the globe in the late 50’s and 60’s.

In the 50’s the bouffant emerged and morphed its way over the years into the beehive ‘do.  I don’t think this style will never die because it keeps morphing its way through time.  The group B-52’s made the hairdo popular again in the 70’s.

Marge Simpson gave it a new twist in the 80’s!And my favorite modern-day beehive so far, of all time, was Amy Winehouse.

Many musicians such as Adele and Jennifer Lopez are still sporting the ‘do…keeping it alive, and keeping it real.
