Sienna Miller is the latest A-lister to demonstrate the influence of the Sixties on this season's beauty trends. The actress, currently promoting Netflix series Anatomy Of A Scandal, graced the London premiere yesterday with her hair styled in a retro beehive which perfectly complemented her Giambattista Valli minidress.

Centre-parted with some loose tendrils framing her face, the up-do had many elements of the classic sartorial symbol of 1960s glamour, but with a little less of the steep volume.

The beehive has also been spotted on and off screens elsewhere. Sex Education star Aimee Lou Wood's also nailed the modern Brigitte Bardot-vibe beehive at the 2021 BAFTAs (see below), while Dua Lipa channelled Amy Winehouse-levels of height at the Brit Awards. Meanwhile Anya Taylor-Joy's character in psychological horror film Last Night in Soho recently inspired many to try the look in a half-up, half-down style.

However executed, revisiting elegance in this way is a key trend this season, says influential hairstylist Sam McKnight. At Moschino during Milan Fashion Week he gave models super sculpted up-dos with a "hyper-polished finish", pictured below.

Another way the tumultuous decade has inspired our beauty looks this season is with ‘the hair flip’ – hair styled loose with flicked-out ends. As seen on the likes of Zendaya at Valentino’s Paris show to Billie Eilish at the Oscars, it nods to the Sixties without screaming retro like a classic beehive.
