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!

Uh…NO! She’s beautiful, but this does not flatter her at all, and I’m a short-haired girl and love short hair!

non singing irritating voice on

She never had long hair! All that overprocessed color and all that weave…it was bound to happen! Looks bad like all the other styles she try to wear! She need to focus on trying to learn how to sing!!!!!

I like her with short hair. It really brings out her gorgeous cheekbones. :)

itsall good nroanoke on

Her cut was because SHE CONT. to wear all that weave/ wigs cause damage! Janet Jackson same thing. Hair needed A break.

I doubt it’s much of a haircut as it’s unlikely that the hair she whips around on stage is her own. Nothing against Beyonce… But most of the long locks we see on celebs and non-celebs for that matter (including my daughter lol) are not their own.

I’m on mom on the go & I’d NEVER do that! Wig,weave removal, whatever, put it back!!

That’s just her regular hair. C’mon how stupid do you think people are

No cut- weave removal on

Cut? You mean cut the string of her weave! She’s always been bald headed… You can’t call it a “hair cut”, if its not your to begin with. She’s overrated!

Yuck! Beyonce can’t pull this off! She’s got a great voice, great body, and great moves but she does not have the face to pull off a short cut like this.

Look good, she can rock any do…Cutting hair is sooo liberating. One should do this at least once in their life.
