Some hair styles are more fleeting than a shooting star, others stay on trend for decades to come. We take a look at some of our favourite celebrities and the iconic styles they’ve worn over the years that still turn heads today.
Fierce. Bold. Beautiful. Timeless. Halle Berry, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Solange and Kerry Washington – all incredibly respected women who’ve graced the covers of countless glossy magazines and continue to set hair style trends across the globe. Nomvuyo Nene from Terenzo Hairdressing International, a multiple awards winning salon group, gives her expert take on how to get these celeb looks, what makes them ‘timeless’ and insider secrets on products and tools you can use to keep your style picture perfect all day long.
Halle Berry: Pixie Cut
Halle Berry first debuted what would become her signature crop in 1993, promoting her role in the Queen miniseries. Her look has remained timeless over the years because she maintains it so well. This is a showstopper look for people who are bold and not afraid to have ultra short hair. You can also achieve this look with a weave, which can be cut according to your face shape. Terenzo Professional Haircare Urban Advantage will give short hair that spiky effect. You can also use a curling iron for more body. An oil sheen spray will give you the high gloss mist without weighing your hair down.
Beyoncé: Long Wavy Weave
Queen of fierce, Beyoncé’s long blonde hair – sleek or straight – is her trademark. It softens her skin tone and makes her eyes ‘pop’. This look is for people who are not afraid to lighten their hair and get that honey blonde. You can also achieve this look by putting on a weave and colouring it (just by the way, Queen Bey has access to some of the best, highest-quality and, yes, expensive, wigs and weaves in the world). There are different ways Beyoncé styles her hair: curly at the bottom, upstyle, French braid on the side and braids – it all depends on her mood and the occasion.
To maintain Beyoncé styles opt for a colour protecting shampoo and conditioner to keep the colour vibrant and long lasting, and use hair spray after styling. Remember most weaves needs a serum to give your locks a high gloss finish with regular usage of essential oils such as Argan Oil Or Morrocan Oil.
