Rita Ora just brought back this stunning retro hairstyle

Rita Ora

Get ready to see this *everywhere*

Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / November 21 2018

In all honesty, there are very few old-school hair trends we want to see back in rotation (we’re looking at you, ‘80s mullet and really BIG hair), but Rita Ora has just convinced us that there is one we’re totally up for. She just revived one of the top hair trends from the ‘60s – and it’s got us feeling inspired.

The singer showed up to the launch of her second album Phoenix looking like an absolute BOMBSHELL. That red fluffy dress was next level, but it was her *stunning* throwback hairstyle that had us swooning.

She wore her platinum blonde hair in a towering ‘60s-inspired beehive, and we have to say, we’re totally feeling it!

Unexpected? Yes. Into it? Completely. 

The statement hairstyle featured maximum volume at the crown (read: ALL of the backcombing and ALL of the mega hold hairspray), with face framing tendrils left loose at the front.

The singer paired her retro look with oversized lashes and an eye-popping silver metallic eyeshadow (check out some of our favourite metallic eyeshadows to step up your makeup game), completing the look with a slick of pinky-nude lipstick.

We think this whole combo – the sky-high ‘do, bold sparkly eyeshadow and epic lashes - gives off an elegant yet playful vibe. It’s the perfect Christmas party inspo in one.

What do you think of Rita Ora’s beehive hairstyle? Are you keen to get on board with this trend revival?
