Where To Put The Accent!"

The Beehive

 The more tease, the better the Hive!

Today was a productive day.........what else to do on a sunday? :-)
So I decided to learn a bit more about Vintage hairstyling late 50's, early 60's. The Beehive is a hairstyle you've probably seen in some retro movies like James Bond or even Amy Winehouse was a huge fan of this style.

  • The popular "girl" group, The Ronettes, helped popularize the hairdo. "We came from Spanish Harlem", recalls the group's veteran lead singer, Veronica "Ronnie" Spector, in a Village Voice interview. " 'We had high hair anyway.' So the Ronettes made their hair still higher—'We used a lot of Aqua Net' ".
  • Audrey Hepburn's character in Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) sported a large then-fashionable beehive.
  • Yeoman Janice Rand, from the original 1960s Star Trek TV series, wore a complex, "futuristic" version of a beehive.
  • In the Flintstones episode "Fred's New Boss" (season three), Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble get their hair done in gigantic, elaborate beehives at a salon, and the pair drive their car very slowly to protect their hairdos. Unfortunately, their 'dos are destroyed after a fast-moving dinosaur vehicle passes by and blows them down.
  • '60s singing icon, Dusty Springfield, was known for her trademark beehive and panda eyes look.

it is also known as the B-52, for its similarity to the bulbous nose of the B-52 Stratofortress bomber. It originated as one of a variety of elaborately teased and lacquered versions of "big hair" that developed from earlier pageboy and bouffant styles. It was developed in 1960 by Margaret Vinci Heldt of Elmhurst, Illinois, owner of the Margaret Vinci Coiffures in downtown Chicago, who won the National Coiffure Championship in 1954, and who had been asked by the editors of Modern Beauty Salon magazine to design a new hairstyle that would reflect the coming decade. She originally modelled it on a fez-like hat that she owned. In recognition of her achievement, Cosmetologists Chicago, a trade association with 60,000 members, created a scholarship in Heldt’s name for creativity in hairdressing. The beehive style was popular throughout the 1960s, particularly in the United States and other Western countries, and remains an enduring symbol of 1960s kitsch.

This is my result today, started with Hot Rollers set on base

Besame cosmetics Retro Lipstick

Hello darlings,

Have you ever dreamed of that perfect Red Retro Lipstick?

Well, today I got a nice package in my mailbox..........Besame Voluptuous Lip colour set "I chose the Red Velvet one!
it was packaged really nicely (too sweet to open) and not recognizable to anyone of what's in it hehe. I also ordered the Besame "Your perfect red" set with 6 luxe samples of the best shades of red. I couldn't resist to that :-)
I ordered it on october 6 with "What Katie did", so delivery was pretty fast and that from the UK.

Some info about this lipstick :

This color set contains everything needed to create gorgeous, sensuous lips. Each lipstick delivers smooth, feather-proof coverage and contains a mineral stain that locks in colour for extraordinary long-lasting wear. At the heart of the lipstick's formula is a special mix of rose waxes and flower essences that provide a unique silky softness to the lips. A proprietary blend of ingredients promotes cell renewal and natural fullness. Aloe, green tea and botanical oils add antioxidant protection and soothing qualities to the lips. When used daily, your lips will stay incredibly healthy, moisturized, and strikingly voluptuous. Each Voluptuous Lip Colour set contains:
  • A pigment rich Voluptuous Lip Colour lipstick encased in a high gloss enamel tube
  • A velvety travel sleeve for the lipstick
  • A matching automatic lip pencil
  • A hand crafted lipstick brush ergonomically designed to fit perfectly between your thumb and forefinger for a precise application.
  • A detailed lipstick application guide
The Voluptuous Lip Colour Set may be used in a variety of ways:
  • Use the lipstick in combination with the lip pencil for perfectly shaped, feather-proof lips.
  • Apply the lipstick alone for soft, healthy, moisturized lips.
  • Use the pencil in combination with a clear gloss or lip glaze for shiny lips with a long-lasting touch of colour.
  • Wear the pencil alone for lips with a deep stain of colour in a matte finish.
Infused with natural ingredients to protect and nourish the lips; paraben and petrolatum free. Voluptuous Lip Colour lipstick delivers the exceptional color and long-lasting wear you expect from Besame. It’s quite simply the perfect lipstick.

Here are some photos I just made in my studio to show you what a nice Christmaspresent this is (if it was christmas at least). I'm sure when you receive this, it's always Christmas! :D

Nicely wrapped in

Your perfect Red set

My treasure "Red Velvet"

Looks colorful :-)

I haven't got the chance to try it out on my lips yet,
but that will be soon I hope :-)
Stay tuned.

If you want to catch her at all, you need to go to see her next year at The Tempest Storm Las vegas Burlesque cruise from New York to Bermuda. I think she's worth the journey :D

Old Hollywood Glamour

 A Glamorous life

The glamorous live of Hollywood is something I can really dream about. These shots were made with so much care and fantastic props, it's really catching to watch these. I know special lights and techniques were used those days and hard to accomplish now. To have some nice high contrast and still soft Hollywood light, they used Fresnel theater lights and probably creamed in the lens with Vaseline :-)
Ladies were ment to have curves and old Hollywood was happy to show those curves. Makes me wish i was born in the 30's.

Imagine, walk down the street and spot Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable, Debra Paget, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Veronica Lake, Audrey Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, James Dean, Cary Grant.........when it really was "tinsel town"".......Ooohhhhh :-)

Well I won't cream in my lens with vaseline for sure to be in that tinsel town hehe, but I would like to try out these inspirational shots one day.
