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!

I’m still trying to get used to the bad nose job she had.

It is scary how she and her husband control their image and their brand. Almost every picture of her on this website was released by HER.

Oh man…she can’t pull off the pixie cut.

What in the world is she thinkin? That cut only looks good on certain people and Beyoncé isnt one of them. She’s not an anerexicly thin woman like Victoria Beckham or Miley Cyrus. This woman has curves and it makes her face look fuller than it actually is.
Beyoncé, grow it back out soon, but in the meantime, get a wig and some great extensions.

I really don’t think this works for her. I think her lower face is too wide. She’s beautiful but this hair highlights her in all the wrong places.

Life goes on on

Hair gets brittle, from too much exposure to coloring and braiding close to the scalp. A friend of mine, had some problems with it and she is now bald, from the forehead, to about an inch, backwards. I hope that was not the reason, Beyonce cut her hair short.

It’s called weave removal people!

Not everybody can rock a haircut like that. As gorgeous as she is, it doesn’t look good on her. If you want another example just take a look at Miley Cirus.
