All hail Beyoncé and her undeniably show-stopping sense of style. Whether she’s gracing the red carpet, painting the town red like cinnamon, yachtin’ over in Capri, or just flexing on Instagram, Bey is undoubtedly the Queen of slayage and the ultimate epitome of beauty.
And as we all continue jamming to Act I: Renaissance tunes and patiently await some killer accompanying visuals, we thought this would be the best time to reminisce on some of the Queen’s most timeless hairstyles. God knows some of us need some inspiration!
So, get your stylist on speed dial and hold on to your edges because we’re about to hit you with some #Beyoncé-approved #Instagrammable #fallhairstylesinspo looks that’ll get your nemesis green with envy.
The Run the World Gladiator Braid
Yonce is forever serving up major inspiration when glorious strands are concerned, but our jaws literally dropped when we saw this undeniably fierce, gladiator-esque low braid complete with a bold red lip, signature earrings, and a statement sparkling dress that gives major ‘don’t f**k with me’ vibes.
The Flawless High Pony
Even though Beyoncé’s staggering glossy lip is reason enough to take screenshots, we have to give the Queen a richly deserved shout-out for this iconic high, bouncy and voluminous pony.
And hey – if you’re planning to dance hard to ‘Get Me Bodied,’ this is the pony you need for a QNL (Queens N’ Lettos)-worthy whip around!
The Church Girl Crème Brulee Blonde Curls
Beyoncé’s golden locks have become a signature look, and it wasn’t shocking to see her rock sexy, sultry shades of blonde throughout the Renaissance World Tour.
But one of the blonde-ish looks that stood out for us was the crème brulee blonde curls, a perfect combination of three blonde hues – baby, pale, and golden. It was the perfect shade for a Queen like her.
Didn’t she look majestic?
The I’m That Girl Voluminous Curls
When Bey decides to rock glamorous, voluminous curls, you know it’s about to get down. And when she pairs this flippable hair with a runway-worthy red piece and brushed-up brows, you know the world is about to stop and take a Thique-Bey breather!
Top Tip: If you want to rock this style, we suggest investing in a good curling iron and a dry texture spray – it’ll give that definition you’ve been looking for.
The Pure-Honey Sunwashed Blonde Waves
When Beyoncé’s rocking blonde on stage, you know it’ll be a hair-flipping time. And this sunwashed blonde gave us nothing but that. She looked sexy, jaw-droppingly amazing, and when she gave us that flip, chile! We just had to ask the universe to bring as back as her cat or even purse.
The moneypiece look featured bright, warm-toned blonde highlights (throughout her hair) and some dark caramel lowlights to add depth and contrast.
The Creamy Chantilly Blonde Half-Up Half-Down Look
The chantilly blonde post-renaissance tour look was our favorite. And you, too, can achieve the look.
The Formation Box Braids
Braids are a staple that doesn’t go out of style.
So, if you’re looking to start your braids journey or step up your braid game, take a page from Queen Bey and rock these super long, straight Boho braids with a sexy curly texture that shines all through. They’re a definite head-turner!
The Partition-ed Wet Waves
If you love the idea of a wet hair look but aren’t sure how to go by it, try this Beyonce-approved ombre version. The waves channel hot girl summer energy, while the ombre color adds some much-needed dimension.
And those skinny white sunglasses (plus the badass red lip) – lawd have mercy! Beyonce is for sure that girl!
The Sexy, Cuff It Updo
For a simple yet stylish look that works everywhere – from the red carpet to the beach and a wedding party, try this sleekly held bun.
It not only emphasizes your skin’s radiance, but it’s the perfect style to showcase a statement lip or drop-dead gorgeous earrings like Beyoncé’s.
The Drop-Dead Diva-Gorgeous Half-Up Teased Bouffant
Who says a bouffant is a thing of the past? Not Queen Bey.
This slicked-back bouffant, which she rocked in the iconic ‘Single Ladies’ music video, gives us all the sultry feels.
Plus, can you imagine a hairstyle more befitting Y2K birthday parties and basically every time you want to channel bad bitch energy?
The 6-Inch Super-Straight Hair With A Dash of Bangs
Leave it to Beyoncé to make us crush so hard on an eyelash-skimming fringe. The stick-straight caramelized strands are foxy, while the light bangs add sophisticated yet undone sexiness to her overall look.
It’s the perfect hairstyle for queens with curly or fine, thick hair textures since the layers are kept long, and the bangs blend seamlessly into the layers.
The Déjà Vu Slicked, Crimped Up Hair
Ms. Carter is channeling her inner goddess energy with this breathtaking crimped-up high pony, not to mention the futuristic, chandelier earrings and simplistic makeup look.
To achieve it? Apply a hair-boosting pomade, go over your strands with a soft, natural brush, slick it up, and hold it like a bawse!
