If there’s one thing we know about Beyoncé, it’s that the girl loves using her hair to get our attention. Whether she’s changing up her style, coyly twirling it around with her fingertips, or forcefully flipping it right on beat, not a woman alive has has mastered the hair toss better than B. So, in honor of her birthday, we’ve captured just a few of the moments that she’s used her strands to captivate us all—it’s truly an art form.
When she flirted with just a smirk, a glance and a hair flip. And whether you’re straight, gay or simply for Bey, you #CANTEVEN.
When she used all of that length—well, all of those extensions—and flipped ’em back in the perfect mermaid-inspired toss that everyone has sadly tried to impersonate in their Instagrams.
When she finished off her hip pop with a hair pull and a head bang, to really get the point across.
When she casually ran her fingers through her curls while seducing the camera, as one so often does.
When she used that fan to her full advantage and we all wondered why we don’t have fans following us on a daily basis.
When it literally rained fire on stage and Bey simply tossed her hair to prove she truly does rule the world.
When she toyed with our emotions by showing off how silky her weave is and we all realized we have to grow our hair out long again.
When she lived out our blow drying fantasies in real life—because who hasn’t passed the time singing and drying? For the record, we’ve never looked like that doing it. Or well, twerked in the process.
When she taught us how to strut with the perfect amount of force so that our hair blows in rhythm with our curves.
When she showed us how to truly whip your hair back and forth: straight into your adoring fans’ hands.
