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!

That looks like a $17 grandma haircut from one of those budget hairstyling salons at the mall.

I’m so proud of her and can’t understand th hate this woman gets…Just because she wears weaves,wigs doesn’t mean she doesn’t have hair…we all know that when she was a child and when she first started on DC she had long relaxed hair. Maybe she felt she had enough and did a BC and now feels free. I’m transitioning, I’m 7 months post and some days I just want to cut my relaxed ends, and they aren’t that short, cuz I’m fed up with dealing with 2 textures. And a lot of women who return to natural, says that it very liberating the BC.

Your roots are showing.

I have to say, though, even though I like the cut, she looks a little less feminine. Kinda like Peter Pan.

Short hair is a no go in my eyes for her. She can pull off many hair styles but this one…..

Tasha on

I would be siprised if that is Beyonce just got a trim. She has been wearing weave for a decade. I think her natural hair looks a whole lot cuter though.

Lisa on

She looks beautiful.

I hope it’s a wig. I can’t imagine cutting off that much hair.
