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!

“BeyoncĂ© appears to still be getting used to the new do, touching the nape of her neck tenatively.”

check the mirror, she appears to be posing with her hands behind her head, nothing tentative about it. also tenatively? Surely you meant tentatively.

She is just trying to follow the trend ,but it’s not a good look for her.This cut looks good on women with petite features like Halle,.Beyonce is too I thick imo.

She’s used to seeing that hair between weave appointments and everytime she take those wigs off. She’s just needs attention. And it’s not a good look. Kelly has the face for short hair.

She looks like joseline hernandez from VH1 Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

She’s not feminine enough to pull that off. She looks like a man.

For crying out loud people, it’s a lace front, you can tell by the hair line.

If its a wig, she must have shaved her head because I know she did not get all that hair under a wig.

So she took her weave out. . .this is news, because . . .
She looks pretty, but I think the hair colour is not good on her that short.

Lets get real! That long hair has always been extentions. Got a good hair stylist but then she can afford it.
