Did Beyoncé Chop Her Hair Into a Pixie?

Are you sitting down? Good, because we have some paradigm-shifting news for you: It appears that Beyoncé has cut off all her hair.

We’ve seen the superstar with pretty much every hairstyle (wigs included) under the sun, from blonde to brunette and waves to braids. But with the exception of the short wig she wore to play Etta James in Cadillac Records, she’s never had hair above her chin — until now.

And in a series of Instagram photos she posted late Wednesday night, her new look appears to be the real deal. A close-up shot shows the wispy new layers framing her face; in other pics, Beyoncé appears to still be getting used to the new do, touching the nape of her neck tenatively.

A practical mom-on-the-go do decision? A “hipster in Brooklyn” move of shear genius? The work of someone tired of wearing a full head of hair all the time — or just a trick with a really good wig? Only time will tell. But with plenty of tour dates on her Mrs. Carter Show tour left to go, we look forward to seeing what she’ll be whipping around the stage should this cut be permanent.

Tell us: Do you like Beyoncé with a pixie? And be sure to show us your fierce short haircuts here!

Now she is just as ugly on the outside as she is on the inside.

few can pull that off , but she would look good bald.

Years of hair extensions damaged her own hair.

cut her hair? puh-lease!!! it’s definitely not her hair colour but it’s likely her real hair…all that long hair is just wigs….

That’s the hair she’s always had minus the bleaching. Black girls don’t have ‘long’ hair. If they do its a weave or wig. Period. Her natural hair would be a short afro. Go for it bey. Be yourself. I think beauty comes from within. Remember beyonces 33 most firecest moments from the superbowl. She wasn’t sexy once that evening with her looks or performance. Maybe less fakeness will work out better for her. Maybe feeding less self taken photos to tabloids will help too. #getalife. #bereal

Still counting down and it looks like 1 minute left in the 15 minutes of fame game.

It would be flattering if the hair color was reddish brown..

Personally I like the short hair on Beyonce. I keep my hair short because it is so much easier to take care of!!

Savvy on

I love it! She has a gorgeous face & can pull it off.
Also, I’m so sick of weaves & extensions on women. They look obvious & so 1997.
