How to do a Bouffant Hairdo, James Bond Style

The bouffant hairdo was a hairstyle that was mainstream in the mid-to-late 18th century western Europe. Thought to be created for Marie Antoinette, because she had thin hair and desired to create an illusion of having lot’s of very full hair. In more modern times, late 60’s early 70’s, the bouffant hairdo was popular in Western culture, specifically the United States.  It was created in the 1960s, back-combing the hair and using large amounts of hair spray. The modern bouffant is thought to have been created by Raymond Bessone, a British hairdresser of the 1950s and 1960s.
