ICYMI: Beyoncé released her highly-anticipated self-directed visual album Black Is King on July 31. The visual is a love letter to Black and African culture, and as we’ve come to learn from all of her releases over the last few years, it’s a rainbow of colors and over-the-top fashions. But even though the fashion itself is jaw-dropping, it wouldn’t be a Beyoncé project if it wasn’t also bursting with epic hairstyles and beauty looks.
Throughout the entire 90-minute project, the Queen and her collaborators squeezed in dozens of intricate, African-inspired braided hairstyles — like box braids and bantu knots — and over-the-top makeup looks. Read ahead to check out a few of our favorites from the video — then head over to Disney+ to watch it a second (or third) time.
