Beyoncé’s 80s hair is doing it for me at the moment!

The picture below shows Beyoncé in London shopping in TopShop on Oxford Street. I love the 80s look. Here is how I would recreate it:

1) Use a hair polisher like IC before *lightly* blow-drying my hair on the cool setting. Sounds like an oxymoron, but this way, I can get a semi-straight look without putting my Afro hair through too much heat.

2) Tong the front and back of my hair with a thin barrel. I think for this look, they used thin and wide barrel tongs, but I would err on using thin barrels to do the littlest amount of work to the hair but for the maximum effect of getting curls.

Do you like Beyoncé’s look here, and would you attempt it with natural or extensions? Let us know.
