Beehive Meets The French Twist

By Andrea Claire · August 28, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

BellaSugar's posting on the Beehive Revival may just have been subliminal inspiration for the hair I did for Luxola's first beauty shoot. Luxola, Singapore's newest beauty shopping experience is launching soon. [Click to register to stay in the know.]


Aside from the fact that I look AWFUL... this gives you an idea of how to section and tease for your own:

Beehive French Twist

  1. Taking 1/2 inch sections, hold the ends tightly and back-brush at the roots for 12 strokes
  2. Continue on for the entire head. Note: each section needs the same number of back-brushing strokes in order to have equal lift and a well-balanced 'do
  3. Brush the hair lightly towards where you want to anchor your style. In this case it was to a seam in the back for a French Twist, cross your bobby pins in an 'X' to lock in your style and use fewer pins.
  4. Smooth the outer layer over the rest of the 'do. You can completely smooth flyaways if you like. I wanted to leave some loose so it looks more modern.


Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam $14.00 by Aveda at Folica.com

Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam is a patented formula-which includes certified organic honey, burdock and marshmallow root-creates weightless volume on fine and medium hair.

  • For fine to medium hair types
  • Light to medium hold
  • Weightless volume
  • Detangles
  • Builds body


For Fine/limp hair: Blowdry with mousse like AVEDA's Phomollient and set the hair on hot rollers which adds lift, body and shape to work with.

For curly hair: Don't tease / back-brush too much as if you rough up your cuticle too much you will just create frizzy hair. Although it can be done on curly hair, you're best to not back-brush and work with the volume you naturally have. Check out my fave curly hair people at DevaCurl for tips and tricks.

For more behind the scenes of the Luxola's first editorial shoot check out their Luxola Facebook page.

For the makeup used you'll have to wait for Luxola online to launch - just a few weeks away...
