Beyonce is best known for her musical talents, but we all fall in love with her style every time she changes it up.  Her clothing choices and hair styles move us to like her Facebook page, love her Instagram photos and stalk her website. Or is that just me?

She generally keeps her hair in the same hues – honey blonde and brown and she often wears it long and wavy.  However, when she wears braids, I sit up and adore. I can think of 5 times Beyonce gave us life with her braided style.

Goddess Bun

She sported this style on the red carpet and was GLAMOROUS. You can wear the Halo Bun without the braid but the added braid gives this look an old Hollywood glam touch.  Who better to give us Hollywood glam than Beyonce? Yeah, I thought would agree with me.

Thick Formal Side Braid

Thick Formal Side Braid

Remember when she gave us the messy side braid? It was so girly.  This look seems easy to achieve.  After scouring the internet, I found many people providing us with tutorials on how to capture this hairstyle.

Halo/ Crown Braid

Halo/ Crown Braid

Beyonce rocked this look in 2014 at the end of New York Fashion Week. While her outfit was smoking hot, her hair and makeup gave her look “the girl next door”.  The braided crown provides an angelic persona and, therefore we have no choice but to trust her to give us this trend.

Jumbo Braid

In her “Upgrade U ” video she donned the jumbo braid. It was long and totally unexpected from her.  Can we all agree that when Beyonce tries to play the “hard girl from the block” that it is just cute.  Nobody actually believes she’s a closet thug. But because she braves the look  – we love her for it. Beyonce gave life and we accepted. Breathe….

Box Braids

Beyonce wears these type of braids often.  A lot… We usually see her sporting these when she’s on vacation for obvious reasons.  They are very low maintenance.  She even wore these post pregnancy. Once again – easy maintenance. This look is so versatile because she will pile them up on her head in a high bun and we may also see her just letting them hang loose down to her waist.

Every time she wears braid, WE ARE HERE FOR IT – waiting to see what style direction we will take from her next.
