Beyoncé steps out in New York City wearing an oversized braided topknot.

Jul, 18, 2012

Hot hair alert! Beyoncé, who is known for walking — or shall we say Sasha Fierce sashaying? — to the beat of her own drum has taken on one of summer's hottest hair trends: the braided topknot.

Queen Bey was spotted in her new 'do en route to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City with Baby Blue Ivy in tow. Yesterday we caught wind of Beyoncé's hairstyle change when photos of her partying at Nas' Life is Good album release party surfaced on social media. 

Bey's baby sis Solange was a key figure in resurrecting the box braid trend last year and has sported the style off and on over the last few months. It looks like a penchant for oversized braided buns runs in the family!

What do you think of Beyoncé's new look?
