Amy Winehouse could only be herself when she wore thick black eyeliner and her beehive.
The late ‘Body And Soul’ hitmaker had a unique style, which developed into her trademark look as she wore big backcombed quiffs in the ‘beehive’ style, distinctive eye make-up and 50s and 60s style dresses.
Her stylist, Naomi Parry, said: ”No matter what she’d have the thick black eyeliner on and the beehive pinned into place. She’d feel uncomfortable without it. Once it was on, she could be herself.”
Although Amy contemplated changing her hair, these moments were short lived as she ”wouldn’t have been Amy” without it.
She explained to British Grazia magazine: ”Before she died Amy had a moment where she was thinking of changing her hair. She was talking about getting a fringe – or a bob. It lasted about 10 seconds. She wouldn’t have been Amy without the beehive. I think she was aware of that.”
Amy who died of accidental alcohol poisoning in July 2011 would have been celebrating her 30th birthday on September 14. In her memory the Amy Winehouse Foundation is hosting a number of events to mark the milestone.
