Beyonce’s curls are deliciously enviable and part of her signature style, so this short hair makeover from the bootylicious diva is something of a surprise. Although it’s hardly ideal for the wind machine, we like it a lot. The side-parted pixie is kept soft and playful to retain femininity, while adding strength and definition to the face. One of the best things about short styles is their versatility. Beyonce could wear this look spiked or smooth, messy or sleek –– and it would still look just as good.

Step: Ask your stylist for a short and textured, cropped razor-cut. A razor-cut will help you maintain space, freedom, separation and pieciness within a modern aesthetic.
Step: For soft and sexy slept-in looks, push hair creme through hair and allow to air dry.
Step: To create more of a messy, mussed finish, rake texture paste through damp hair and tousle into shape with hands.
