Beyoncé has been seen with many fabulous hairstyles over her long, illustrious career, but no matter how her hair has been colored or styled, one thing has almost always remained more or less the same — the woman rocks some serious length. Except for that time she got a bob back in 2013 (which actually looked amazing on the singer), she’s kept her hair mostly at least past her shoulders, and typically well down her back. As such, there’s been some debate over the years about whether we normally see her with weaves, wigs, or her natural hair. Well, Tina Knowles just attempted to settle that debate with an Instagram post on Saturday.
Let’s rewind a little. Beyoncé’s stylist, Neal Farinah, posted multiple images of Beyoncé after he styled her for the Sports Illustrated Awards with captions like, “SAY WHAT ALL NATURAL,” and, “SLAY ME THAT NATURAL CURLY HAIR,” implying that what we were seeing on Bey’s head was all hers. (TBH, who cares — the woman looks gorgeous, and we all use makeup, hair products, and other cosmetic enhancements to look our best, but for the sake of the debate, let’s keep exploring.)
However, commenters still had some questions for both Bey and Farinah, and wondered if it was indeed her real hair (or all hers, and not a half wig). This caused Farinah to post a video to Instagram addressing some of the comments and praising the gorgeous natural texture many black women have.
Flash forward to now, when Tina Knowles herself has stepped in with an Instagram post showing Beyoncé from the back with a long, sleek ponytail. The caption simply says, “INCHES!!!! So happy my baby’s hair grew back !! She is going to get me 😩” and while it doesn’t address any of the drama around Bey’s hair, it does imply that everything we’re seeing in the photo is real, and that Beyoncé’s hair is all hers.
