37 Beyonce Hairstyles That Prove She Runs The Beauty World
Most would not attempt to argue that 2014 has been the year of Beyoncé. This girl has been seen everywhere from your TV, magazines, online, red carpets, and of course the stage with her equally popular husband, Jay-Z. In fact, if we were to be honest with ourselves we could easily admit that many years over the last two decades have been all about Beyoncé. From her Destiny's Child days until now, Bey has taken over the minds of thousands adoring fans worldwide with no signs of it stopping any time time soon.
All this Beyoncé indulging has me wondering, why are we still so fascinated? It could be the fact that queen Bey is an incredibly talented singer and performer, adorable mother, and inspiring idol. It may also be fair to assume we draw our fascination simply from her appearance. After all, this independent woman has shared several sides of her fashionable personality with the world and has embraced every ounce of herself on stage. However, no look is complete without a fierce do' and Beyoncé has certainly tried out every possible option over the years. This girl has been a blonde, brunette--with braids, without braids--toting curlers, bandannas, and countless other styles that almost feel impossible to remember.
Though I cannot guarantee I have located them all, I am confident that the following trip down memory lane just about covers every pinnacle in the Beyoncé school of hairstyles.
