Tina Knowles-Lawson had fans doing a double take on March 2 after she shared a throwback photo of her daughter Beyoncé getting her braided by a Chloe Bailey look-alike, her “bonus daughter” and hairstylist Toni Smith. The image was initially sent to Smith by her friend.
Smith’s friend wrote about stumbling upon the photo and realizing how strongly the hairdresser resembled Bailey. “Morning, sis! I hope you’re well I’m cleaning out photos and I just saw this. I meant to tell you please let Ms. Tina know that Ms. Toni looks like Chloe Braiding Beyoncé’s hair, and I can’t unsee it.”
Lawson agreed with the friend as she reposted the snapshot along with the text on her Instagram page. She said, “This is so cute but very true !! Chloe @chloexhalle looks like a young Toni Smith one of my many bonus daughters this is at my hair salon Headliners . ❤️❤️. Thanks Toni’s friend that sent this to her❤️”
Many people, including Bailey herself, expressed how similar the two women looked. The “Do It” singer replied,”🤣😭🥰 so true.”
“I see it!”
“Wow. the resemblance is 100 percent 💯”
“She does.. Even Chloe agreed 😂.”
“Baby that is Chloe😍😍😍🤣.”
“Before I even read the message I thought that was Chloe!”
While many raved over Bailey’s uncanny resemblance to the hairdresser, others brought up how they thought this was a recent photo of Bailey braiding Blue Ivy Carter’s hair.
One wrote, “I thought it was Chloe braiding Blue’s hair at first glance.”
Another declared this was the pair with a filter “Blue and Chloe with a vintage filter.”
An Instagram user suggested the girls recreate the image. “Looks like Chloe braiding Blues hair. They need to recreate this!”
Lawson made headlines recently when she doted over her granddaughter Blue Ivy’s appearance in the ICY Park commercial alongside her mother Beyoncé.
She said, “My Beautiful grandbaby Blue Ivy looking like a little super model in her Ivy Park . Swing your hair Blue ,!!!!! She inserted herself into this shoot . No she was not supposed to be in it ! She was just hanging out and got dressed and I guess she said ‘I ‘m not gonna tell you what I could do I’m gonna show you’ I love that aggressive spirit My Blue Blue!!!! ❤️”
