Beyonce's New Darker 'Do: Love It or Hate It?

Although she’s one of pop music’s most famous faces (and one of the PEOPLE’s Best Dressed!), the shorter darker ‘do Beyonce wore to the launch party for Diddy’s new fragrance, Unforgiveable Woman, made her an unrecognizable woman. Even the man of the hour didn’t realize the “Irreplaceable” singer was in attendance. “She just had a new hairstyle. I didn’t recognize her,” Diddy admitted. “It was real sexy.” Changing up her look is nothing new for Beyonce, whose hair has gone from big and bouncy to sleek and shiny and from super straight to two-tone ringlets. But her deep brown side-swept curls she showed off at Diddy’s party caught us by surprise — in a good way. Tell us: Do you love Beyonce’s new color or do you prefer a lighter shade?

I like it! It seems to be a great transition for fall. If youlook back at some of her childhood photos you will notice that her natural hair is much lighter than this.

i cant even tell that this is beyonce
it is weird looking

she looks old but it may just be the style and not the color

I guess everyone needs a change every once in a while, but I would have to say that the blonder look suits her much better. It makes her more sultry and feminin where as the darker colour makes her look older, much older in fact.

This is probably her natural hair that no one has seen in a while. I like the look.

LOVE IT! The blonde was nice but enough already. She’s a sistha not a Blonde.

I do not like it on her. I didn’t recognize her. In fact I would noy have known it was her if her name wasn’t posted. I swear (and I’m not being mean) I thought she was Hottie from the Flavor of Love show. Then again maybe it’s not the color just the style.


First of all the photograph has been shot at a very unsuitable angle which does not show Beyonce’s ” good side “. Imagine her with a dark red lipstick, staring at the camera and her mane of beatiful hair…this is what she need, a good shot angle and more colour in her lips…she is gorgeous !!!

I like the hair color. Just not on her. Maybe because of the direction the picture was taken but her face looks kind of “chubby”. I don’t like the hair style either.

Marie on

This does not look like Beyonce. I’m a fan of dark and short hair but this does not look good on her!
