INSPIRED BY THE QUEEN

Music superstar Beyoncé’s trendsetting reach is far indeed…Here, Australian hair pro Joan Dellavalle crafts a look inspired by none other than Queen Bey’s amazing waves and stunning haircolor moves. For this look, Dellavalle custom colored hair extensions in a light brown/auburn hue then added honey blonde lowlights for dimension. Lengths were then shaped with a barrel curling wand to fashion large spirals. Texture was then brushed out to blend to craft this stunning look. We think “Sasha Fierce” would approve. Don’t you?

When a Naturalista is in doubt about which she loves more—curls, twists or braids—the smart style sister will always select all the options! This lovely upsweep merges these fave Natural mane moves into one gorgeous design.
Mini braids detail the sides with precise partings while curls are coaxed forward into a stylized “pompadour.” Leave some ringlets free up front and twist others for a more defined effect. Inspired yet? We thought so.

Less is more when it comes to this stunning photo posted by former America’s Next Top Model and actress Eva Marcille on Instagram. Keeping with her signature golden tresses, Eva gives her cut a new spin with longer layers and a low part. Quick work with a flat iron and light tousling is all that’s needed to give this short snip a hint of texture and for Eva to slay this pose.
