Amy: Beyond the Stage

Professional Hair Stylist Tracey Cahoon designed Amy’s hair between 2003 and 2010 and was central to defining the singers beehive. On display here is the ‘Trademark Beehive’ styled by Cahoon for the music video for the single ’You Know I’m No Good’, directed by Phil Griffin in 2007. The wig was prepared using mousse, then set with heated rollers, before being shaped through back combing. To blend the wig seamlessly with Amy’s hairline, her own fringe sits neatly against the piece. The look was then held in place with hairspray and then distressed to make it appear slightly unkempt, distinguishing Amy’s beehive from more polished vintage equivalents.
