Tina Turner is a true icon, a one-in-a-million, diva-to-end-all-divas, international megastar. They threw away the mold when they made Anna Mae Bullock, but if we could name any of today’s divas as her successor, it would definitely be Beyonce. Not only does Bey interpret Turner’s frenetically sexy dance moves and energy into her performances, she’s managed to mimic many of the “What’s Love Got To Do With It” singer’s fabulous hairstyles! Here, a gallery of our favorite Tina Turner hairdos (like her’80s crimped coif, left), as well as Beyonce’s modern-day version.
Beyonce’s version of Tina Turner’s iconic, mid-80’s wildwoman ’do was decidedly curlier and a tad more blonde—but just as diva-tastic!
In the late ’70s, Turner rocked a flirty, flippy ’do with Farrah-feathers on the sides. So sexy!
Three decades later, Beyonce updated Tina’s bouncy waves by adding a side part and pinned-back bangs.
With her pin-straight hair and wistful gaze, Tina Turner looks like the quintessential late-Sixties flower child.
Beyonce usually goes for curly or wavy ’dos, but we also love her hair straight! Her glossy, flatironed strands look elegant and chic.
Tina Turner loved experimenting with haircolor—here, she’s gorgeous in a glossy, auburn look that does major things for her cheekbones.
Beyonce rocked rich, reddish-brown waves at the launch party for her Emporio Armani Diamond fragrance. Very Tina-esque!
Here, Turner departs from her usual rock goddess look with softly layered, honey-blonde tresses.
On the red carpet, Beyonce flawlessly reproduces Turner’s ultra-feminine, long blonde mane.
For a moment in the early ’70s, Turner went super-dark with shiny, chestnut-brown curls.
At a ‘106 and Park’ appearance, Beyonce went darker than usual, rocking mahogany-brown lowlights and tons of body.
