Beyoncé's Hairstyles Are What Really Run The World

Beyoncé has already made it clear that she is a grown woman and she can do whatever she wants. However, the 33-year-old can't take a scissors to her blonde mane without fans shedding a few tears or critics giving her the side-eye for sporting baby bangs à la Bettie Page.

Ever since her Destiny's Child days, Beyoncé has experimented with countless hairstyles. Remember that time she showed up on the Grammys red carpet shining with glittery hair tinsels? Or when she rocked box braids with bold prints during a wedding anniversary trip to Cuba? And we will never forget the jaw-dropping brunette hair color she sported back in 2008. (There's still an ongoing debate among HuffPost Style editors on whether she looks better as a blonde.)

Unlike fellow hair chameleons Rihanna and Katy Perry, the pop diva's incomparable work ethic and booty-shaking records make it difficult to focus on her constantly changing hair. So we've put together the below chart to chronicle Beyoncé's boldest hairstyles over the years.
