Bee-hive hairdo secret pictured. Frances Beauty Salon Searcy AR. 1968.

Frances Dale beehive hairdo 

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!

Laugh, Don, laugh.  The hairdo was pretty funny.

What we do fashion! I have to say, 'the Rachel' sparks less chuckles.

By 1968 I was wearing my hair long and smooth; but even earlier than that when I was still in high school my mother wouldn't allow a beehive, so I really missed out! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Odaly, if you are referring to the "Rachel" hairdo on "Friends" I thought it was the ugliest hairdo ever.  I read somewhere that she thought the same thing.

Nina, just think of the time you saved by not having to tease your hair in to a beehive.

Wow look at all that hair! I wonder if we'll look back in another 50 years and reminisce about the hairdo's of today!

Haircut was a hobby of my mom, so all my childhood mom used to train me and my sisters, sometimes she cut the hair of her friends and dad. She was doing pretty well, so one could say that we had a personal stylist and a home salon. Now I’m an adult and recently found an article https://beautyprosoftware.com/blog/things-need-know-opening-beauty-salon/ so now I'm thinking about my own business - a beauty salon. My mother will be glad to help me, so she will have a favorite activity.
