Would You Wear Big Hair Like Beyonce?

Beyonce looked gorgeous, as always, when she stepped out to support her beau Jay-Z at the opening of his new 40/40 Club in Las Vegas. But we can’t help but wonder if her over-abundance of curls overshadowed her flawless face. It’s refreshing to see her with a new ‘do but this hair might be a little too out there. We want to know: Do you like Beyonce’s ‘do? Would you wear your hair this big?

I just wanted to say that I have “big hair” (if you call long, curly, luxurious & beautiful) and it never looks at all ‘awful’, and if anything – I continually get compliments ALL the time.

And? the men LOVE it! So way to go Beyonce – for being yourself, for being you .. keep it up! Fire

Big hair, NO!!, natural VOLUPTUOUS curls yesss!! Though hers may not be hers, women everywhere rock wonderful natural curly hair and that is a big yessss!

Belen on

I don’t think she has any “do”, I mean, I’m sure that her natural hair is more this way than what she usually shows. She’s so natural with this hair, I just find that she looks great, because she usually looks too excesive and that’s not something that you need when you have her age, less is more when you have beauty, and she has plenty!

I think Beyonce looks amazing. Its really good that she is not following all the trends of stick straight hair like all the other celebs. Way to Go Beyonce

lalalal on

actually I like beyonce´s hair.. I actually have hair kinda just like it :)and its beautiful

Rachel on

Her boobs look like she put boloons in her bra, and what up whith her hair it looks like fuz from a pillow.

AnnieJ on

Not unless I was a big girl.

Angel on

I’m all for big hair but honestly she has too much…i love her make up and the dress but i think her hair just distracts from her natural beauty.

Angel on

Im all for big hair but she just has too much…i love her make-up and her hair but i think the BIG hair just distracts from her natural beauty.

Britney on

I would never do my hair like that unless its way to big…

brynn on

I also have big voluptous, naturally curly hair and that style looks great on everybody, beyonce is a beauty no matter what she does with her hair.

Jenny on

I wouldn’t… But she’s a star and she can look like a star.

gatinha on

I think she’s hair is so hot!
Big hair is so gorgeous!

dee on

I think she looks great with it. But, it’s not meant for everyone to wear the same hairstyle. Every hairstyle doesn’t look good on everybody, so it doesn’t matter if one person would wear it or not.

Patricia on

Yes if I had the her money I would wear it also. We do not know how long her natural hair is so why comment. She looks pretty with any style, and saying it is too much well you do not say that when it is someone else (Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lopez) just to name a few. But Yes indeed I would and Beyonce wear your hair to suit you no one else okay. You go girl

jessie on

If I had thicker hair that could possibly held that sort of volume… It looks very high maintenance!

nicole on

She is getting OUTDATED. She needs something new. why are reg. women made fun of for having the same hair cut for years when this has been the same style for how long?

Hazeleyez21 on

I personally do not like the whole big hair thing. It looks messy and untamed. I would not feel comfortable rocking that appearance.

Dianne Rutherford on

I once let my hair grow out like that. Since then, I have become more outgoing and sexy-feeling. I’m a beast, actually. All of the students at the school where I work are turned on to me….even the girls. My best friend, Tonya, is TRUE,TRUE, FALSE, TRUE, FALSE, TRUE, TRUE (FALSE). That doesn’t make sense to ya? Neither does it to me.

kaelyn on

i would wear it because i have “big sexy hair!”

keysha on

personally, I would not, but to each is own..I think it makes her liik older than what she really is.

Beyonce’s hair???Beyonce’s wig looks cool. There are lots of girls who have naturally curly hair like this. Unfortunately your million dollar girl is not one of them. So many people have commented on her blonde wigs that she finally feels safe enough to wear a dark wig. Just because she is light skinned doesn’t mean she was fortunate as well to have the hair that usually goes with the features. The bottom line? ANY FEMALE CAN BUY THIS WIG. One day when she stops pretending that part of her natural beauty is a head full of hair, all of you will be suprised. If you are saying what difference does it make? whether it’s a wig or not? well that’s my point. Any one of you can invest $1,000.00 dollars and represent yourself with this luxurious hair. But when the dudes start saying I love your hair, only you and God will know the truth. Her own hair? Just barely to her shoulders and kinkyish, not curlyish.
Don’t get mad because the truth is good. Just remember, Halle Berry is still beautiful with a boyish haircut. So nobody is hating just telling you the truth..because it TAKES away from Black girls that really do have long luxurious hair like TATIANA ALI. SHE LOOKS NICE LIKE ALL THE OTHER BLACK BEAUTIES who wear extensions and wigs.

Casey on

i dont think i could work it but as always; beyonce pulls it off beautifully.

Cocoloco on

i like big hair but it doesnt look good on everyone. if its naturally curly, thats great, but perms went out in the 80s and should STAY OUT

lila on

Please, give us a break people! You and I both know that… (pause and effect!!) that is not her hair!! True.. ok, she bought it but, it’s not exactly “her” own growth!! Ha! how funny is that, just like that hair product stating she uses that color, uhhhh… right, you mean that she uses that color weave!! not hating just stating the sad truth. wonder how she looks with her real hair?

erika on

beyonce looks nice with big hair.. so yes i would wear big hair like her..

f on

It’s not even her hair but a WIG.She always wears them.

Joegrl on

I like her hair on her, but on me…… that’s a different story!!!! hahahaha lol….. But, yeah it would not look good on me!!!!

Joegrl on

I like her hair on her, but, on me…… that’s a different story!!!! hahahaha lol!!!! But, yeah it would not look good on me.

Theresa on

Honey, back in the 80’s, I had bigger hair than Miss B’s – but she is beautiful

anaschild on

I don’t think it matters how she wears her hair, she looks beautiful as usual, I think she could wear just about anything and look great!

Anonymous on

I LOVE IT. This is her natural hair, it’s rude to suggest she should hide it of be ashamed of it for any reason.

keShajo on

I think big hair isn’t necessary for Beyonce. Her best looks are those that capture her in her everyday casual self. Where her hair is slicked back in a ponytail, or just a straight mane. I think, nowadays, she should opt for some simplicity. I mean her outfits are the wow factor, but so is her body. The hair is just over-kill! It takes away from her style!

Jenny on

She could have toned it down a little. This is just simply not working for her!!

Bride of Chucky AKA Tiffany on

I kinda like it. But, people are saying it’s a wig. But, I don’t know if that is true. She looks fine.


oh dange I thought that was shakira!

marie on

I would never do my hair like that unless its way to big…

Cinderella on

I don’t like her makeup, its looking so TACKY!…she is a celebrity and I expect better….

delisa on

beyonce i love the hair keep on doing your thing
biggest fan

stacey hinds on

I just wanted to say I’m her biggest fan and she looks good in anything. She’s got it GOING ON, I am loving that do she’s rocking. It make her looks so extra beatiful and soft and light and fuffy, I don’t know she looks gorgeous with that hair and colour. NICELY DONE

Doris on

I think the hair is nice and it’s amazing how beautiful she looks with that hair. i just want to say that, she should always be proud of herself and understand that it’s her individuality that makes her beautiful.

jazmin on
