click image to zoom We weren't alone when we feel head-over-heels in love with this Amy Winehouse-inspired beehive created by MODERN Facebook fan Rikki Hudson.
Hudson is a former fine arts major from Detroit, Michigan, who has won awards over the years for herceramic work, photography, painting and drawing. "I found my true passion in being a professional hairstylist," she says. Currently a stylist at Bruno Salon in Southfield, Michigan, Hudson is also clearly inspired by the world of music---having created this voluminous finish that got thousands of likes on our Facebook--inspired by the late Amy Winehouse.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: These steps are pretty tricky--and we don't have an image for each and every single step. But, this was one of our most in-demand tutorials, so we did the best we could. Our advice is to really take a look at the final images...this will help with the braid placement confusion. Best of luck to you in recreating this Winehouse-inspired look!
Finish by pinning the end of the second pleate over the end of the first one as far down as you can and use a firm hold hairspray to keep the ends down as neatly as possible and if you took your braid far enough to the ends of the strand you should be able to blend the end of the second pleate over the top of the first without seeing the ends.
"Be creative with the hair you left out around the hairline, Hudson says. "I left my two-day old curls in the ends in true Winehouse fashion and used my flatiron only to shape a few peices that werent exactly where I wanted them to be."
