Apart from the fact that she's proudly debuting her baby bump, Beyonce was all decked out in a scarlet one-shoulder Lanvin dress that played up her maternal glow. And who can forget her diva-licious ombre side-ponytail, all soft and slightly wavy. Speaking of which, her gorgeous 'do deserved the best hair award at the VMA.
Why? Beyonce's made us go gaga for ombre hair all over again. For those who think the ombre effect looks too surfer-girl and informal, and not elegant enough for dressier occasions, Beyonce's red-carpet mane proves them wrong. Steal these tips from the hot mom-to-be to take ombre hair from casual to uber-glam:
Tips to glam up ombre hairGo from light to dark: Try lighter roots and darker ends, instead of the other way around. The brighter tones on top frame the face, which lend a beautiful glow to your complexion and draw attention to your features.
Aim for glossy, not messy: For an ombre effect that feels more Glamazon than surfer girl, forget the messy, wind-blown texture. You'd want your hair to look healthy, not bleach-damaged. To coax shine, prep hair with a heat-protectant product before blow-drying your hair smooth, and add gloss especially to the ends which are prone to frizziness.
Style it up: Ditch the careless beachy waves and opt for a sophisticated coiffed 'do. Try a polished sleek style or follow Beyonce and gather it back into a romantic side ponytail.
