Margaret Vinci Heldt of Elmhurst, IL, passed away on June 10, 2016, at age 98—leaving her forever mark on the hairdressing world in a big way.

Vinci Heldt is credited for creating the famous beehive hairstyle back in the 1960s. She was a natural and talented competitor who won the National Coiffure Championship in 1954, and served as educator and mentor to scores of Chicago-area hairsylists during her career, including Mario Tricoci, John Amico and Marty Rizzo. She also owned Margaret Vinci Coiffures on Chicago’s posh Michigan Avenue.

The hairdresser was active with her professional association, Cosmetologists Chicago, for almost 80 years. “Margaret was a member and inspiration to Cosmetologists Chicago since 1938,” says Paul Dykstra, CEO, America’s Beauty Show by Cosmetologists Chicago. “We dedicated our 2010 America’s Beauty Show to Margaret—a hair stylist, fashion innovator, salon owner, educator, champion, member and dear, dear friend to many. We will continue to honor her for her love and devotion to her association, profession and everyone who knew her.”

To say this dynamic spirit will be missed is an understatement. We do know one thing however: there is some serious fabulous hair happening right now inspired by Vinci Heldt’s original hairdressing creations!
