Beyoncé let her mum give her a haircut

And no, that is not a wig

BeautyCrew Beauty Editor / June 28 2019

Beyoncé is a notoriously private person, however, when it comes to her mum Tina Lawson, the pop star is more than happy to make an exception.

Tina shared a rare glimpse into Bey’s life on Instagram (though she later deleted the post) when Beyoncé’s hairstylist Neal Farinah handed over the scissors and let her mum have a go at cutting her daughter’s hair. She captioned the video: “I was trimming my baby’s hair today, and I am mocking Neal!”

In the video, Tina can be heard repeating the phrase “au naturel, all natural darling” in reference to Beyoncé’s long flowing locks, though the singer appears unamused by her mum’s antics, saying, “mama that’s really annoying, I mean, very annoying…mama!”

The most amazing thing is that all of that hair is *actually* Beyoncé’s, which Farinah confirmed when he posted the same video with the caption: “WHAT WEAVE WHAT WIG. YES YES ALL NATURAL @mstinalawson @beyonce LET THEM KNOW 😂😂😂😂. SAY WHAT BLACK GIRLS GOT HAIR.”

Beyoncé has been known to be a great lover of wigs throughout her career and honestly, with hair like that, we understand why she she’s been using them for years; she’s managed to maintain extremely healthy natural hair by forgoing excessive heat styling and colour changes.

Beyoncé’s not the only one with a penchant for wigs. These 17 celebrities are notorious wig-wearers.

Would you ever let your mum cut your hair? Let us know in the comments below.

Since then, her keen interest in fashion and beauty has landed her gigs as a Digital Content Producer and Beauty Editor with titles like Girlfriend, Refinery29, BEAUTYcrew and beautyheaven. She loves the way seemingly innocuous topics like skin care and style have the ability to put a smile on people’s faces or make them think about themselves a little differently. A big believer in self love and experimentation, Briar has made a point of becoming the Australian beauty industry’s unofficial guinea pig for unusual treatments and daring hair trends. When she’s not testing out the latest beauty launches, Briar is big on broadening her horizons, mostly in the form of food but she’s also partial to travelling to new destinations both near and far (and of course, allocating an extra bag to bring their best beauty offerings home with her).
