The Beehive hat is a variation of the pillbox hat. Created in the 1960s, it was named for its shape, as was the popular high-rise hairstyle of the time. Always brimless, the beehive hat fits to the head as a pillbox would, but rises high, sometimes into a rounded point, sometimes more flat.
Beehive hats came in a wide variety of materials.
