    This week’s celebrity lookbook is all about Queen Bey, as her birthday is fast approaching. The singer will soon enough be turning 41, and I don’t know about you but I personally love a birthday! (Especially a cool celebrity extravaganza one).

    What are we waiting for? Let’s dive right into these 10 Beyoncé hairstyles for you to get inspired and feel like a real queen!

    1. The Bob

    Hair bobs are coming back! Everyone chopped their hair off around the end of 2020 and throughout 2021, just to go back to longer tresses as the big bouncy blowouts came back from the 90s, together with a colourful lot of hair accessories. Beyonce was no exception, and as she sported an iconic blonde bob in the promotional video shot for IVY PARK x Adidas.

    2. Soft Waves

    No one does a Valentine’s Day outfit like Queen Bey, and her hairstyle simply had to be as iconic as everything else. From the “bee mine” cookies to the adorable snaps with her kids, Beyonce slayed this look. The waves are focused only on the mid part of her mane, leaving natural ends and straight roots for contrast.

    3. The Retro Blowout

    With the raging comeback of puffy, fluffy retro blowouts, we couldn’t expect less from Beyonce. This iconic look - also recreated by Kim Kardashian and Gwen Stefani - was made famous by models and singers throughout the 60s, 70s, and even some of the 80s. One of the most iconic to remember? Cindy Crawford’s in her memorable Pepsi commercial. You can play around with ultra volume hair extensions and make this look yours! Get your real hair extensions here.

    4. The Braided Ponytail

    This is one of the fiercest looks ever sported by Destiny’s Child former front-woman. The hairstyle itself is quite simple, yet effective. You can recreate it at home with the aid of a clip-in ponytail hair extension. Make sure you keep the rest of your hair slicked back.

    5. The Extra Top-knot

    Remember the good old top-knot? Forget about it, we’re going extra! Beyonce added height and volume to this hairstyle, and I can only imagine the amount of hairspray involved in the process. Hair extensions are a must in order to achieve this kind of height without missing out on length and volume. Add clip-in hair extensions to your top-knot to take it to the next level!

    6. Deep-Side Parting

    Remember when Gen-Z declared war on skinny jeans and hair parted to the side? Well, although they haven’t changed their mind on the former, they surely have grown fond of the latter. Side parts are back, and when accompanied by gorgeous curls the scenario only gets better! Want to recreate this look? Then check out our guide on how to curl your hair.

    7. Soft Curls

    A gently curled blowout is a dreamy, classy hairstyle that makes you instantly look put-together and orderly. You can easily achieve this look by adding in Remy hair extensions for a fuller, healthier, plumpier mane that you can then style with the aid of jumbo Velcro rollers. I have personally put together a guide on how to use Velcro rollers that you can read here.

    8. Extra-Long

    Nobody does an extra-long, silky hair do like Beyonce - periodt. Well, unless you want to add Kim K and Gigi Hadid to the roster. Well, you get the gist of it… If you want to look expensive, this is your go-to hairstyle. Unless you’ve been blessed with Rapunzel tresses, you can always resort to hair extensions to achieve this look. Our range includes 26” long locks to play with: shop now!

    9. Curtain Bangs

    We have talked about this look a lot, since it’s a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Best paired with the “money piece hairstyle”, curtain bangs (also known as face-framing bangs) have been the go-to hairstyle for many, many celebrities - including fellow singer and actress Jennifer Lopez.

    10. Textured Bob

    Gradient colour and textured, tousled strands? Yes, please! This wet, beachy look is a compliment to literally anyone who’s in the mood to channel that “rockstar vibe”, either on the beach or for a night out in the city. A hair crimper, waver, or even just sea-salt spray will be your best friends to recreate this type of look.

    11. Conclusion:

    Not only best-selling albums and iconic roles in cinema, Beyonce Knowles knows how to serve an unforgettable look too. These are only ten of the multiple, incredible hairstyles she’s sported throughout the years of her incredibly successful career. Happy birthday Queen!
