Beyoncé Gets an Inverted Bob: See It From All Angles

According to Beyoncé, girls run the world. But lets be real: Her hair runs our world.

One week after cutting off all her long blond waves into a bleach-blonde pixie cut (and igniting #shorthairdontcare fever), the singer has switched up her look once again. And the latest is totally different than any style we’ve seen on the star: an inverted bob. (The Bey Bob? The Boboncé? We’re still working on a name. Stay tuned.)

It’s a whole lot of look for one short hairstyle, so let’s break it down: Her strands are long and blonde in the front, dramatically shorter in the back and darker underneath (as seen on the layered sections).

Queen Bey accessorized her new bob with a golden Grecian-goddess-esque headband while out in Miami with Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

We wonder how her stylist Kim Kimble feels about this look. Kimble told PEOPLE she was completely blindsided when Beyoncé first chopped her locks. “I got a little teary eyed!” she confessed. “I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too.”

Tell us: What do you think of Beyoncé’s latest do? Do you like it better than her pixie?

@ Guest – you have the grammar and punctuation usage of a ten-year-old. You are also too ignorant for words – “Her kid will have black people hair, so should she.” So all black women with children should stop wearing weaves, wigs and extensions because their children have “black hair”? You are absolutely ridiculous. That’s like saying all white women should stop dying their hair blonde because their children wear their hair with the natural color they were born with. It’s a personal preference…as long as your hair style makes you feel good, that’s YOUR choice. Whether one’s hair is black or green in color, long or short, natural or enhanced…it is still hair and JUST hair. I’m not a huge Beyonce fan, but I just think a lot of the comments here are incredibly sad and senseless. I hope People magazine will find other subjects and celebrities to feature and take a long break from doing stories on Beyonce’s hairstyle changes. As they do with a lot of their articles, People is going overboard with these stories about her and she’s already not a fan favorite right now so they are only adding fuel to that fire.

I always say hair does not define a woman but in this case……and we don’t need to see the training bra.

I’m not all about this cut… the headband makes it worse… but it isn’t my head so none of my business!

WHO CARES!!! Over rated, over produced and over paid!!

Beyoncé doesn’t have an original nor confident bone in her body. Don’t believe the hype. She is moved by public opinion and must always have people cheering her on to feel she is the queen her publicity states that she is. Rhianna and a slew of other celebs just do what feels good to them (hair and fashion wise) and let the public love it or leave it. But, Bey has to have the love and approval of the public like she has to have air.
