Old News: Amy Winehouse is dead.
Honestly, can’t say I’m surprised, but that doesn’t make it any less tragic. When her first singles came out I was all over them. I found her so relatable with her alcoholic references, tattoos, and her pin up retro inspired style. Her raspy voice was engaging, reminiscent of something out of her time.
I’ve done a beehive hairdo for myself on many occasions, and with the IFB Project #7 to do a tribute post I thought what a great way to honor someone whose style I’ve always loved.
I for one will be sad to no longer see her effortlessly cool style popping up anymore.

My work’s closed this week for “maintenance” (I’m sure everybody has heard about the bed bug epidemic on 5th Ave, right?) and I had nothing to do but walk the dog today. By 6pm I was bored out of my mind and decided to do what I do best when I’m bored; futz around with make up and my hair!
I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos as this was a spur of the moment idea and they were all taken with my iPhone.
I started with my hair; it’s a pin-up/beehive inspired by Prada. I did it with the help of the tutorial that was posted earlier this week on The Fish Tank . That Fritha has wonderful tutorials, I must say.
My hair was difficult; it curls, which is both a blessing and a curses when trying to tease hair. Mostly it was a curse though when I’d try and brush the front whisps over the teased hive. Also, my lack of hair on my left side of my head made it complicated. I had to force the other half of my hair to cover the entire hive… Next time I will have to keep some pieces out for smoothing.
Contrary to her’s and Prada’s ‘look’ I used a teal leopard printed scarf from Limited Too and tied it around my hair at the end of the process.
Next I decided some nice classy pin-up inspired make up would complete me. I used white shadow by Make Up Forever, my black Maybelline gel eyeliner, Givenchy mascara (the round brush makes for amazing lashes), and a dash of red lipstick to finish me off!
As you can see I’m totally bumming it in a KrushRadio tee shirt and sweatpants but hey! At least I managed to match 😉
Anyway, just a few fun pics of this fairly simple yet couture-like look. Be sure to check out Fritha’s tutorial here !
