Beyoncé. Queen of everything. Including hair.

There are entire websites and endless Tumblr pages dedicated to animated GIFs of the singer flicking her hair at concerts.

And who could forget that time her hair got stuck in a fan on stage, and she kept right on singing ‘Halo’ while her clueless security attempted to free her weave.

Let’s take a look at Beyoncé’s hair evolution to see why Beyoncé is the undisputed Queen of, well, everything. Including hair.

Beyoncé debuted a straight, sleeker style for when she kicked off her solo career in 2003.

Just as an FYI, you should know that this post is sponsored by Dove. But all opinions expressed by the author are 100 per cent authentic and written in their own words.
As her solo career took off, so did the height of her hair. Here the "Survivor" singer rocked a half up half down bouffant hairstyle at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003.
You know what I said about the bigger her career, the bigger her hair? Well, here’s more proof. Here Bey is sporting a thick, blonde gaggle of curls at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards in Miami. She was also ‘Crazy in Love’ at this point in time, so that might explain it?
Fast forward one celebrity fragrance, a movie and three years, and Beyoncé has gone back to her dark roots (and hair extensions) in 2007.
At the 2008 Grammys the ‘Dreamgirls’ star went back to blonde and experimented with a shorter style.

3 tips for achieving iconic hair like Beyonce:

1. Mix it up: from pixie cuts and bobs to luxurious weaves and hair extensions, Beyonce's style is never boring. Don't be afraid to play with dramatic styles yourself every now and again.
2. Beyonce's daring and ever-changing hairstyles work because she has the attitude and confidence to pull them off (and it doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous, I suppose). If you totally own your own style, you will always look polished.
3. All that styling and colouring can take its toll on your hair, though. To counteract damage and keep your tresses in tip-top shape, use a nourishing treatment like Dove Pure Care Dry Oils regularly.

No, that’s not an optical illusion that is glitter in Beyoncé’s hair. The singer pulled out the tinsel to celebrate the 2010 Grammy Awards.

Beyoncé briefly sent the internet into meltdown mode in 2013 when she uploaded a selfie showing off her new pixie crop. It was what we’d always expected underneath all those hair extensions and weaves, nevertheless the then 32-year-old proved she could still shock us.

Beyoncé then stepped out with her chin length, wavy bob.

But since nothing lasts long in the world of Beyoncé’s hair closest. By August 2014 she was back to her trademark long, caramel curls.
