As we give thanks today for the many wonderful blessings surrounding us, don’t forget to cherish the beauty of your hair. Yes, your hair. Because, no matter what kind of “hair day” you’re having (more good days than bad, admit it now…), it remains your crowning glory. With its twists and twirls, the myriad of mane shades it’s been veiled with and the many textures and designs it’s assumed through the years—the long and short of it is it’s yours…and it is beautiful. Celebrate it. Love it. Be thankful for it.

Leave it to Beyoncé to inspire us for a fabulous holiday beauty look (yes, party season has arrived). Let’s dissect the look, shall we? Starting with the “super blonde” haircolor (the lightest she’s done in a while!), the star flaunts this golden hue courtesy of celebrity haircolorist Rita Hazan who blended a stunning mix of honey, platinum and gold to craft a multi-dimensional shade which balances warmth and depth. Then, fabulous waves sprouting from a center part are left loose and fluid on a slightly longer version of the popular “lob” (a deconstructed bob). As for makeup, Beyoncé opts for a gorgeous sweep of color on eyes—emerald anyone?—while keeping lips a muted nude pink. Flawless.
