Beyoncé is a perfectionist who does not stop trying until she gets what she wants. The 33-year-old singer recently made photographers at the Met Gala event in New York City wait for more than an hour for her arrival. The reason: Queen Bey did not like her hairstyle and wanted a last-minute change.
The “Drunk In Love” singer was a head-turner when she arrived at the May 4 gala because of her sheer, nearly nude Givenchy gown. The songstress was also in news for her peculiar hairstyle, in which she tied her hair up on her head in a very high ponytail. But a source close to the singer told Us Weekly that the ponytail was not Beyoncé’s first option.
Beyoncé's longtime hairstylist Neal Farinah said that the original hairstyle chosen for the singer was an "Asian-inspired" chignon. The theme for this years's Met Gala event was “China: Through the Looking Glass” and Beyoncé's stylist planned a chignon to go with that theme. A chignon is a bun that ties the hair at the back of the head in a very traditional way. However, the singer found the hairdo too "costumey," and asked for a change during an elevator ride.
"Then we were in the elevator on the way down, and she looks at me and says, 'Neal, I want to change my hair. Will you change my hair?' And I said, 'Honey, there could be cameras in the elevator,'" Farinah is quoted as saying to Beyoncé, according to the website. The stylist was apparently thinking of the 2014 Met Gala elevator drama when Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles was caught on a camera striking Jay Z.
But when Beyoncé makes up her mind to change something, no one can stop her. She told the stylist to give her a new hairstyle of a high ponytail within five minutes. The singer then walked the red carpet looking chic in the ponytail look and got praised for it. Other celebrities at the event include Rihanna, Sarah Jessica Parker, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, Robert Pattinson and singer FKA twigs, and George and Amal Clooney.
