Beyonce’s Side Swept Ponytail at the 2011 MTV Awards

2011 MTV Video Music Awards - ArrivalsThe 2011 MTV VMA’s awards were hot. The VMA’s this years showcased a host of new artists, from Bruno Mars to Justin Bieber, as well as some of the familiar faces like Jay-Z and Adele. The VMAs are the one day of the year where MTV gathers to honor the greatest players in the music industry. 2011 saw a night where all the awards were dished out to the leading ladies of the music industry, from Katy Perry to Britney Spears. The evening, however, really belonged to Beyonce. She brought the announcement of her pregnancy with her husband to the stage on Sunday – as well as a great sense of style.

Beyonce has always been a positive trendsetter when it comes to fashion and hair styles. These two aspects go hand in hand when it comes to creating a good look, and Beyonce has them nailed. Her hairstyle for the evening was a swept back side pony with brow grazing, side angled bangs. Her hair was highlighted in a light honey color that offset her gorgeous skin tone. The length of the hair was curled slightly at the ends, giving it a natural, wavy feel. The undertones of her hair were also colored darker than the top layer. It was the perfect glamorous yet age-appropriate way to announce her much anticipated pregnancy.

Getting Beyonce’s hair style from the VMA’s is easy. Your local hair salon will be able to help you out with the technicalities of achieving Beyonce’s awesome black hair styles. The key is length, and extensions are the perfect way to achieve this. Black hair styles have been influenced by Beyonce since Destiny’s Child, and every hair salon across the country has taken the cue. Ask for caramel highlights and darker undertones. Basic layering and side-swept bangs finish this perfect look. To maintain the style, you’ll need to purchase basic anti-frizz serums, heat protectants and remember – great hair styles require work!
