We’ve watched Beyoncé celebrate numerous birthdays under a global microscope and unsurprisingly, she’s always camera ready. This weekend’s disco blowout was no different as the iconic performer brought in her 35th year with a host of famous friends that included Usher, Chance The Rapper, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, and of course, husband Jay Z with daughter Blue Ivy.
There are countless moments to obsess over, but we’re predictably stuck on Queen Bey’s throwback hair moment. Her honey blonde locks flourished in a half up, half down style, and per usual, we’re dying to know what products delivered this much volume to her mane. Even when she’s off-duty, Mrs. Carter is at the top of our “best of” list. Anyone else getting inspired for Halloween?
Other notable looks include Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony’s afro/scarf combo, both reminiscent of the style rocked by ‘70s icon Jimmy Hendrix. Usher also embraced the disco aesthetic with a kinky coif and circular shades.

And we can’t forget Parkwood proteges Chloe & Halle, who continue to take our breath away with their twice as nice beauty moments. Just weeks after winning the VMAs red carpet with their face jewelry, the dynamic duo picked out their tresses for Beyonce’s birthday bonanza. Truthfully, their entire look is soul personified. We’re excited to see what else they have up their stylish sleeves this year.
