Beyonce Hairstyles and Haircuts

Singer. Actress. Model. Mogul. Wife. Mother. Beyonce plays many roles in her life, and her personal style shines through each. That style has propelled Beyonce from pop singer to international megastar, the face and hair of L'Oreal, cover model and inspiration to women around the world.

"She wears it well, and she knows how to work her look. She knows it works for her," Rita Hazan, a New York City colorist who worked with Beyonce during the promotion for her 2013 self-titled album, says. "She's a beautiful woman, so I think that because she wears it so naturally, everybody wants to look as beautiful as she does. It's not an easy look to achieve. It looks like it's natural and effortless, but there's a lot of work that goes into making it look like that."

Beyonce hit the scene in the late '90s with Destiny's Child. This past decade saw her go solo, star in movies, including "Dreamgirls," launch clothing and fragrance lines, marry Jay Z, and give birth to daughter Blue Ivy. Through each of these milestones, Beyonce has worn an ever-changing and always trendsetting series of hairstyles, from tousled lobs to sleek layers, in colors ranging from honey blonde to chocolate brown.
