Beauty & Beyond: The Short Hair Tribute to Beyonce


Since JZ and JT just played in Boston this past week, I thought it apropos to discuss Beyonce’s new ‘do. Which BTW, I consider a don’t. And if you ask most of my friends, they’ll agree. I’ll get you their Twitter handles later for any argumentative DMs you might have.

Regardless of what we think, she’s stuck with it for the time being. So I tapped owners Vickey Shen and Sue Ko of San Fran’s wicked trendy salon Wicked to help her tame her now-short main.

Here are their top three looks for styling short hair and how to get them...

Short and Chic: For a chic, everyday look, blow dry hair until smooth. Then they suggest following up with a soft, moldable wax. A few of my favorites are Bumble & bumble's Sumotech and Bed Head's Candy Fixations Mega Whip Marshmallow (the second one smells divine). This will add significant texture and movement to your hair.

A Short Romance: For a romantic look, soften up your locks by applying a mousse, such as Defining Creative Moulding Foam Unisex by Davines. After smoothing it in, let hair air dry, or use a diffuser to let natural texture shine. Compliment your softer ‘do by wearing lighter, neutral makeup such as pinks, nudes and bronze.

Old Hollywood: For a glamorous evening look, step up the drama by simply slicking all your hair back using a wet gel. These formulas give you that coveted "wet look" that brought Bo Derek through the '80s, and now you through '13. Give Phyto Professional Wet Gel a try, or their suggestion of V&G Crystal Styling Wax, which is a good selection if you can find it. Wear heavy eyeliner with bold, smokey eye shadow to finish the look.

I have always respected the pixie cut, just not for me (and for only a few ladies). But I guess if I had liked it, then I would have put a hair thing on it. Achem. Anyway, I applaud Bey for giving it a shot. What do you think of her new look?
