The Question: What iconic women’s hairstyle was created by Margaret Heldt in 1960?
Margaret Heldt created the beehive when “Modern Beauty Shop” magazine asked her for a unique hairstyle to embody the new decade. She designed a hairdo that fit inside hats and remained intact when the hat was taken off. During the first photo shoot for the hairstyle, she added a last-minute embellishment that the editor thought looked like a bee — hence the name “beehive.”
The Answer: The correct answer is Beehive.
