Make Your Hair Look like Beyonce’s
Superstar Beyonce has hair that is shiny and full of volume. Her secret? She wears weaves and lace wigs which keeps her hair healthy. They are made with high quality hair leaving people wondering if her hair is really real. In Touch magazine has some insight. It estimates that Beyone’s wig collection is worth more than $1 million. A friend of Beyonce says her wigs are mostly custom made out of real human hair. A single wig is worth $10,000 each. She changes her wigs as often as she changes clothes which accounts for the high cost of her collection. But Beyonce puts her collection to good use by donating her worn pieces to an organization that provides wigs for chemotherapy patients.
Kim Kimble Reveals Beyonce’s Hair Secrets for the Super Bowl
Kimble is no stranger to high-profile celebrities. She has worked with Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Shakira, Mary J. Blige, the late Whitney Houston, Sade, Britney Spears, Jada Pinkett Smith and even Miss Piggy! Clearly, she’s doing something right.
Kim’s four key ingredients to re-create Beyonce’s hair style:
- Brazilian Nut and Acai Berry Serum (Kimble Hair Care)
- Natural Bamboo Grooming Brush (Kimble Hair Care)
- Curling Iron/ Wand
- Elnett Holding Spray (L’Oreal)
Kim Says-To create Beyonce’s soft glam look, I created a deep middle part in Beyonce’s hair. Then I used a curling wand and curled her hair in a vertical pattern. Once I was finished with the curl pattern, I gently brushed the curls out using a natural bamboo grooming brush by Kimble Hair. This created a really nice finger wave pattern.
I used the Brazilian Nut and Acai berry serum by Kimble Hair Care as a smoothing agent. This refined the curl pattern which guaranteed a seamless finish. Lastly, I used Elnett Holding Spray by L’Oreal to lock in the look and the end result was glam, soft and bold.
Beyonce Hair Extension & Lace Wig Application Technique
She has been wearing a lot of sew-ins on top and on the edges with her natural hair out. When she wears a wig, it’s placed behind the hairline. It looks more realistic because the new growth or “roots” are darker. This blends in with her naturally dark hair at the root. It also looks realistic because it draws attention away from the scalp where there’s a lace, thin skin or silk base (depending on what she’s wearing).
An important note: there are two types of lace, Swiss and French. Women typicall purchase the French lace because it’s stronger. But Beyonce can afford Swiss lace wigs which are hide very well in the hair. But they are the most fragile.
Real hair line tracks are added close to the part called skin weft tracks. If there are any tracks used, they are thin skin weft or just added in by clips, row by row sew-in or lace behind the hairline. The hair line is her own.
Theory #2 (Most likely scenario)
It is also believed that the most realistic look done by Kimberly Kimble is the all-around hairline from Extensions Plus (EP).
What exactly is All Around Hairline from Extensions Plus?
All Around Hairline Extension Plus is the latest technique in natural hairlines. It’s designed to replicate the natural hairline by creating a full and beautiful look on the scalp. The edges are formed to mimic a natural finished hairline. Each strand of hair is placed by hand using a special lace material. This is a great technique for covering a thinning hairline as well. What you get is an overall design like a headband that fits closely to the scalp. Only the finest quality materials are used.
- Create a seamless natural hairline
- Get a custom look that’s semi-permanent
- Applied with tape or glue for easy installation you can do yourself
- Same technique used in the entertainment industry
- Comes in a variety of textures and colors
Beyonce natural curly kinky hair
It’s not only the coloring and swiss lace that makes Beyonce’s wigs look more real. It’s also density, which is key! Unlike French lace where you can’t really do a light density at the hairline, Swiss lace is used in conjunction with a light density that integrates into medium and full density throughout the wig. The end result is a believable full lace design!
Then there is skin weft or thin skin (seen above), and silk base which gives the illusion that the hair is growing out of the scalp.
