In order for Dey­once to have “good hair” wouldn’t it have to be HER hair? T


Why is Black hair such a top­ic? I say haters and jeal­ousy!


For all those ask­ing why Bey­once choses to not show her daughter’s face, the answer is out of pri­va­cy. Bey­once and Jay-Z have always cho­sen to remain pri­vate weath­er it be they’re infor­ma­tion, their rela­tion­ship, or their fam­i­ly. I for one am not sur­prised at their deci­sion to keep their child out of the pub­lic eye. And for those of you say­ing they are ashamed of their child, that is utter­ly ridicules and untrue. Bey­once has talked about her daugh­ters beau­ty on many occa­sions! They are just a fam­i­ly who like their pri­va­cy! Good for you Bey!


Lol bey­once don’t be wear­ing weaves she be wear­ing full lace wigs like rupaul and tyra..expensive ones too. That look so damn good she’s one of the rea­sons why I start­ed to wear them. That and rupaul, tyra’s not that god. Beyonce’s at least look real­is­tic.

Fans r fa so in love with B that after all these yrs so many debate whether he hair is longer than aver­age. To believe the entire length of box braids is all her hair is just plain niave.yes she wears weaves&hopefully she’s pro­tect­ed her hair over the years but trust..her real hair does not flow down her back! Stop drink­ing the kool_aid. We can grow long hair..its just not the case with her bc there’s one pic of her out there with her real hair in a pony tail and its more a pony poof. Its a good #… Read more »

as for bey­once she has always had nice and
“good hair” so don’t hate the exten­sions may not be all hers but most of them areare real hair… who knows its’possible for her hair to actu­al­ly be that long because of the type of hair she has it will grow u know.…


leave them alone, i think the pic­ture is adorable,but i must say i wish we could see a real pic­ture of the lil girl ‚we alays see her back or side, what is that all about? i hope she is not ashamed of the lil girl, come on bey show her be proud of your lil girl and fu what the wor­rls says or thinks…


Because she looks just like her dad.…poor thing!!!!!

I’ve nev­er cared for those types of braids, but Bey­once can do no wrong in my eyes! I do wish we could get a few peeks of that cute lit­tle baby’s face, but I under­stand her try­ing to pro­tect her.


Bey­once had a son, did­nt she?


I’m glad that B is keep­ing up her hair on her off time and he baby’s hair looks gor­geous.

I hope she lets her keep her pret­ty curls and doesn’t relax some day. Or rather teach­es her to embrace her hair. Noth­ing wrong with rock­ing weave, wig or what­ev­er but the stan­dard of beau­ty seems to be marred by soci­ety that peo­ple turn to oth­er ways to do their hair based on self image. Again, not always the case. I just hope she grows up lov­ing her beau­ti­ful self. Wish I could see her face!


What colour is her real hair, always won­der!


They all wear­ing “Blue” what a coin­ci­dence!! Hope they don’t cut her hair!


I’m cheesy but it’s so adorable to me they’re both in Blue.


Ladies the title obvi­ous­ly says exten­sions.… lets not be obliv­i­ous


I under­stand that this is a hair blog, but we have to do bet­ter! Why are we so obsessed with hair, whether it’s exten­sions or her real hair. When I saw the pic­ture that first thing that came to mind was WOW-what a ten­der moment between moth­er and daugh­ter. Let’s do bet­ter, ladies and ele­vate our com­ments beyond scru­ti­niz­ing whether that’s real­ly Beyonce’s hair or the moti­va­tion for her not show­ing her daughter’s face whether inten­tion­al­ly or not.


Sad isn’t it ? Can’t appre­ci­ate a new mom with her baby. Unim­por­tant issue. If its on her head its HER & that’s all we need to know.


Beau­ti­ful hair!

Reminds me of my hair as a baby!


Super cute!! Look at that lit­tle baby curly fro!


I think it may be her real hair. She wears tons of weaves for years, so must have at least shoul­der length or some­thing. I’d real­ly like to see her real hair. I don’t know if the 3bc curls that I Bey rock­ing some­times is her real hair or not. I’m not real­ly good at telling weaves unless it’s real­ly obvi­ous­ly. Her sis­ter is 4a, but who knows Bey may be in the 3s. But some peo­ple were say­ing the short afro in the Austin Pow­ers movie was her hair?


I doubt her real hair has extra blond in it ran­dom­ly. . I there was a pic online years ago with Bey and her real hair. It was hon­ey blonde or what­ev­er col­or she has and about shoul­der length and kin­da thin but it was hers, I would bet that since that was years ago, her hair is much longer now unless Bey likes to cut her hair often and secret­ly has some kind of pix­ie cut she parades at home. .lol


she don’t wear weaves, she wears wigs. full lace wigs to be exact. you can tell the hair­line is not her own and in most pics you can detect lace. in some online you can see where she was singing the tape/glue was show­ing. she be wear­ing the same wigs that tyra & rupaul be rockin’


I have always hat­ed those braids! Baby Blue looks adorable


you do know that O‘bama’s mama was white?


Go onnnnn.….….


I love that they won’t show her face. The pub­lic is ruth­less.
Her corn­rows are so intri­cate, I thought that was her real hair too. Is that Beyonce’s ear­ring Blue Ivy is play­ing with? The whole pho­to is adorable.


One word: Adorable!

Okay, more words: I respect Blue Ivy’s par­ents’ deci­sion to not put her all the way out there for pub­lic con­sump­tion. Just for being the daugh­ter of two mega-celebs (as opposed to “aver­age” celebs, lol) she’ll most like­ly be in some kind of spot­light for the rest of her life, so there’s no need to hur­ry the process along. At least they’re not cov­er­ing her face with a veil (yet).


I agree. The pub­lic and them paps are crazy plus all them ppl say­ing she didn’t birth her baby. . shi­i­i­i­it I wouldn’t let them see my angel’s face either. . make em work for that pic Bey. . lol

Bridget J.

I total­ly agree. Peo­ple are so crit­i­cal and crazy. Folks need to keep in mind that she is someone’s child.


+1 on every­thing said above =)


Agree 100%. The paps have caught pics of Blue Ivy.


They don’t look like exten­sions. I think that’s Beyonce’s hair


believe me if it was hers she would be full face (with or with­out the baby, no, hers is about 3–4 inch­es long.


believe me if it was hers she would be full face (with or witout te baby, no, hers about 3–4 inch­es long.


you’re kid­ding right?


I agree with you. I think peo­ple assume it’s exten­sions because Bey­once is known for wear­ing weaves and lace fronts. A lot of peo­ple are under the impres­sion that Bey­once hair is short due to all the lace fronts but on her off time she actu­al­ly wears her real hair.


Pene­lope- Not all exten­sions have to have knots at the begin­ning. I am good at putting exten­sion on with­out the knots in the front.


Thanks for the expla­na­tion!, but I’m still won­der­ing why the assump­tion (made in the title) is that it’s not her real hair…There’s real­ly no infor­ma­tion to tell you that, but every­one seems to be an expert on Beyonce’s hair.

I don’t think folks are pro­claim­ing to be experts on bey­onces hair. Its just com­mon knowl­edge that the girth of braids can vary based on ones hair texture/thickness etc. When one adds hair to a mul­ti­ple con­rows each and every braid is thick at the scalp and sim­i­lar in size. -When most peo­ple put mul­ti­ple con­rows in their nat­ur­al hair the braid is thin­ner and the scalp more vis­i­ble.- The num­ber of braids in her hair and their girth make obvi­ous to sis­ters here(and the author) that she has hair added. And that’s ok! We all know bey­once has a… Read more »

Those are two lay­ered corn­rows using braid hair (a form of exten­sions).


It can still be her real hair..As a kid I wore my hair like that. Look­ing at the begin­ning of her hair (at the hair­line) it doesn’t have the knot of exten­sions.

Natural Diva SC

Tech­ni­cal­ly, you don’t make a knot when you braid exten­tions. That’s the mis­take folks don’t know about. You just sep­a­rate the hair and start braid­ing.


where the fuzz stops is prob­a­bly where her real hair stops.

Joan B. in S. C.

+1 on @forna notic­ing the “fuzz” and where it stops.


Not to say whether it’s her hair or not, but I get my hair braid­ed like that. They use a tech­nique where they start off with your own hair and feed in pieces of braid hair as to not stress your hair­line too much. They call them “feed in” cornrow/braids where I get them done.


Cute but she made sure not to post a full face pho­to her & her daugh­ter


quite love­ly!

She should

wish she shows her face :)


I’m guess­ing she’s not ready for that type of scruti­ny yet. After peo­ple were call­ing Tia Mowry’s son all kinds of names then claim­ing he had Down’s syn­drome or autism, I’d be hes­i­tant too as a celebri­ty mom.




She’s hes­i­tant to show the baby’s face because she prob­a­bly doesn’t look a thing like her.


But she has showed her face. .in the pic when they are in the store. Blue has chub­by cheeks and looks just like her. I am sure the pic was one she wished the paps didn’t sneak but the lit­tle girl is adorbs and def looks like them both, although the world has some kind of sick belief that she didn’t birth her own child. . to each…


Igno­rance nev­er dies. I feel for any­one who’s a celeb mom. Your kid doesn’t look like you, it’s not dressed right, you haven’t lost baby­weight fast enough, you didn’t birth it, you used a sur­ro­gate, etc you can’t win,there’s no pri­va­cy, & the poor kid has to deal with that crap as it grows up.I don’t blame Bey for hid­ing Blue’s face .


Truth. That’s Jay-Z’s baby.
