I’m an 80s baby. This means that I spent my teenage years in the 1990s. There’s something very special about the era that you hit puberty, become of age, and “find yourself.” We all remember high school as being the most formative years of our lives.
Well a huge part of our high school days was the music. More specifically for us 90s kids, music videos was the be all and end all. I still remember the buzz and thrill of watching “Making The Video” (an MTV show that shared the behind the scenes process of making a music video), with the world wide premiere of the video. Sadly that feeling of anticipation akin to Christmas Eve and finding out who won America’s Next Top Model, died with the 90s.
I first read about Beyonce’s video on Facebook yesterday, but I was too busy to watch the video. Then around 1am, I finally got a chance to watch it. I have two words: Mind Blown. I haven’t felt this level of excitement and inspiration from a music video in so long, that I can’t even recall the last video that gave me this feeling.
If you haven’t seen the Beyonce video, then I won’t include any spoilers. Watch it above and review my break down of her several hair styles, including tips on how to recreate the look yourself.
Thank you Beyonce for bringing back the art of a music video. You are the Queen Bee for good reason. All hail the queen.
Natural hair reined supreme in this video! Yassss!!! Here Beyonce is wearing a natural blow out hair style. You can achieve this style by letting your natural hair air dry and then gently finger-comb it when it’s about 80% dry. This will separate the curls and give your hair more volume.
The braids have it! This cornrow and single strand braid style is pretty simple to achieve and also a great protective style.
In this look, Beyonce is rocking a braided crown. You can achieve this style by doing two side braids and then wrap each braid around your head in opposite directions, then secure with hair pins.
YASSS Bey! This is probably my favorite hairstyle and outfit for the video. This is a simple style with two fish braids.
This top bun is amazing and I love the hair net wrapped around it.
This is the first hairstyle we see in the video. To get this look, start with a braid out and pin your hair back into a french twist or bun. Then let some strands hang down to frame your face.
Which style is your favorite?
