Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Hair Is the Perfect Last-Minute Halloween ‘Do

Beyoncé is an icon if there ever was one—there is no debating that. With that kind of status, emulating Queen Bey for Halloween is easier than you think. Case in point, her Lemonade album cover braids. Sure, there are a number of Beyoncé looks you can draw inspiration from for your Halloween costume, but her Lemonade braids are the perfect last-minute Halloween ‘do. Hairstylist Kelly Muldoon breaks down exactly how to recreate Beyoncé’s braids below!

How to Get Beyoncé’s Lemonade Braids

Step 1: Start with damp hair.

Muldoon mentions starting with clean, damp hair. From there, you’ll work a sculpting spray through your hair with a comb. Her sculpting spray of choice? Paul Mitchell Flexible Style Fast Drying Sculpting Spray.

Step 2: Clip hair up.

Once the sculpting spray has been evenly worked through, you’ll clip up the damp hair on the top of the head. Leave the bottom layer at the nape of the neck down.

Step 3: Braid.

Taking three-inch pieces at a time, tightly braid each section all the way down and secure it with a small elastic. You will continue to repeat this step until your entire head of hair is braided.

Step 4: Dry the braids.

Once the braids are complete, use the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer (on the low air setting, but high heat) to dry all of the hair.
