If you were a fashionable person in 1968 you wore a beehive hairdo. They just suddenly, it seemed, evolved. Looking at old movies and magazines, you didn't see anything like these hairstyles. I admit that I thought it was the best looking hairdo and I wanted the look for myself. Alas, the more hair that you had the bigger the beehive and my hair was sparse.
This picture from a 1968 yearbook from Searcy AR shows one being done. The beauty shop was Frances Beauty Shop and the address was 701 West Race. The operator shown is Frances Dale, a lovely person who also operated an antique shop for years. She never gave me a beehive but she sold me lots of antiques that I still treasure. I even had her on my blog once before.
Our favorite first lady has given me permission to show you how the hairdo was really supposed to look. Meet Ginger Beebe as she was in the 1960's! I am still envious!
