Beyoncé Rocks a Bouffant French Twist in Japan – Here’s How You Can Too

Beyoncé’s beehive just set the style world on fire!

While jet-setting in Japan with Jay-Z, Queen Bey turned heads with a dazzling bouffant French twist that screams ’60s glam.

Her platinum locks were swept up in an elegant beehive updo that perfectly paired with her bold, icy blue eyeshadow, echoing vibes from her Cowboy Carter era.

It’s more than just a hairstyle; it’s a statement of sophistication and glamour.

So, how can you snag this fabulous look for yourself? Let’s break it down step-by-step and turn you into a hairstyling guru!

Step-by-Step Guide to Your Own Beyoncé-Inspired French Twist:

  1. Prep Your Mane: Start with dry, smooth hair. If your hair is on the finer side, consider a volumizing spray to amp up the body.
  2. Tease to Please: Using a fine-tooth comb, gently tease the hair at the crown of your head. This is your secret weapon for that signature Beyoncé volume.
  3. Smooth and Sweep: Lightly brush the surface of your hair to smooth it out, then sweep it all back to one side, leaving a few strands loose in the front for that effortless glam look.
  4. Twist and Pin: Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and start twisting upwards. Tuck the ends in and secure your masterpiece with bobby pins, crossing them for extra hold.
  5. Polish and Perfect: Spritz some hairspray for hold, add a touch of shine spray for that celebrity sheen, and voilà—you’re red carpet ready!
  6. Make It Pop: Don’t forget your makeup! Mimic Bey’s look with some bold eye shadow and a confidence that says, ‘I woke up like this’.

Here’s a great video tutorial from Wikihow that guides you through the process:

Now you’re not just ready to step out; you’re ready to strut out.

Embrace your inner diva and let your hair do the talking.
