They don’t call her Queen Bey for nothing. Along with her vocal prowess, fierce performances, and empowering feminist mantras, Beyoncé’s approach to beauty embodies the same fearlessness. Growing up in her mother Tina’s Houston salon made Bey destined for hair greatness, so it should come as no surprise that the singer’s hairstyles are never short of #flawless. Voluminous curls, and micro-bangs are just a few of looks that the performer has slayed over the years. Join us as we get in formation and admire Bey’s most memorable hairstyles throughout her solo career.

Beyoncé slayed the 2016 VMAS red carpet with her waist-grazing triple platied braid. As if the actual style wasn't enough to admire, she also debuted a new shade of blonde courtesy of her go-to colorist Rita Hazan. "I used colors all in the same blonde family to maintain the same angelic feeling to her shade," Hazan told InStyle. “I also knew that Beyoncé was going to wear her hair up so we really wanted the highlights to shine and show through."

A world tour calls for a bright new hair shade. In order to kick off her Formation World Tour in the most glamorous way possible, Queen Bey took her honey blonde shade platinum. "I love her blonde. It's sexy, and on stage, it really stands out. It's a classic Beyonce look, and while she's whipping her hair around and dancing, you can see the multi-dimensional blonde colors," her longtime colorist Rita Hazan told InStyle of the singer's lighter shade.
