Beyonce should be the first chameleon in the hair. If you have been keen to follow the pop diva, its countless transformations, perhaps zoned in a little to its ever-changing and endless list of recycled hairstyles, you may have noticed that the diva has since last shaken so many hairstyles that we can’t keep track of it.
Remember when she showed up at Grammy and swung in garlands of shimmering hair? Or when she cut her hair and then posted pictures of her cut fairy on Instagram leading the whole world of fashion fanatics? Not to mention the day she decided to give a boost to the brown color of brown hair, full of action. And she looked elegant.
The list is endless. But here are the 5 signature styles of Queen Bey and the moments of beauty that attracted the largest number of imitators:
The Honey-blonde Stage Waves
This is the first style Beyonce adopted after abandoning the straightened look. Although she kept the blonde color, she changed her style almost completely by mixing with the waves of the beach and the honey reflections.
For those who remember, this happened around the time she started using the nickname Queen Bey. And queen she was. She could throw the strands that flow through the scenes, which gave her that wild and indelible look that her loyal fans most often associate with her.
Kim Kim Kimble, Bey’s stylist for 15 years, admits that it is the most iconic and coveted style ever seen on Queen Bey’s head. With his words, tousled and imperfect hair is his gaze. Or quite simply, it is the image that comes to everyone’s mind when the name Beyonce appears.
The topknot has reached the new millennium in the blink of an eye. It was a trend. Then Bey started wearing the look that made him even more explosive.

Call it Ponytail Armageddon. This style alone put an end to all ponytails. For Beyoncé, it was a casual hairstyle after hours; when she was off the stage, watching basketball, shopping or walking the streets of New York with her husband Jay.
Beyoncé has been wearing braids from time to time since she was with a child from Destiny’s Child. The only thing she does is vary the haircut. From micro braids and cornrows to thigh braids and flat braids, Bey’s head has it all. Do you remember his trip to Cuba for his wedding anniversary? Well, that’s the style most of her loyal fans would like to see her revisit one day.
The faux Pixie cut
On August 8, 2013, Bey’s fans, critics and fashion enthusiasts woke up with a picture of Bey’s who almost sent Instagram to a crush. Did everyone have something to say about Bey’s new look? What kind of help was Miley Cyrus’ Kool taking?
The photo, which showed Bey Looking in a shiny vanity, killer eyebrows, hard to notice fingernails and the haircut of fake elves. There were all kinds of comments and speculations about her hair. While some of his imitators couldn’t help but scream at the sight of the new Bey.
Turns out Bey was just taking everyone for a ride. It didn’t take the star more than a week to get out with a new haircut, just to prove to the world how much she really is an experimenter. And be careful, do you remember how many elves you only saw at the end of 2013? If Bey had nothing to do with this, who else?
The Wavy Bob
The Wavy Bob was the next haircut for Bey after the pixie haircut. And it was a good transition.
In less than a week, Bey launched the new look that the world would finally call ‘Mom Bob’. That’s part of the reason why the mommy bob over her shoulder was so popular as the world approached the end of 2013, giving the elf a boost for his money.
Although hairdressing has quickly dropped from her name of “mom bob” to “the wob” or “Wavy Bob” as some like to call it, celebrities such as J. Law, Emma Stone, and Kerry Washington still rock.
The Wet style
The ‘Check On It’ clip showed Bey in nine different hairstyles, all made by Kimble.
Also noticed during her performance “Drunk in Love” at Grammys 2014, wet hair styling stood out. It was just a matter of time before the Internet was overwhelmed by all kinds of “wet hair” tutorials.
For more details on how this hairstyle suits Beyoncé, she even put the style on the cover of Vogue magazine – September 2015 issue.
