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?

Actually it’s better than the pixie.i actually cut my hair as a bob and kept the front long so her haircut is awesome it’s cute

Really?? Why do we pay SO much attention to Beyoncé’s hair don’t we have more important things to talk about?? If she did get a pixie cut why doesn’t she just own the cut and get on with her life???

This is ridiculous, you people do know that it has NEVER been her actual hair right? She got a short weave… stop the presses. I don’t care how much money you have, the only way a head of hair could be coloured that much and not be seriously damaged is to have a weave.

It’s weave, and it’s cut poorly. Yuck.

Beyoncé is a very pretty lady, but this style does absolutely nothing for her.

So she did this to fix her first mistake of taking her extensions out and showing the world? Now she has this? She didn’t invent the short haircut and she didn’t invent this haircut either, as I have had it myself while growing my own hair out. Stop making this chick to be a “style icon” when she isn’t. Just goes to show you how much a haircut can make a woman look not attractive at all.

The whole exposed bra trend/look needs to go away, NOW! And as for the hair? Yeesh…

Gem98 on

That has got to one of the most unattractive “wig?” I have ever seen. If I had a billion dollars, I would have left that one out of my collection.

Yuck. That’s horrible! And PUH-LEASE….her hair does not “run my world”.
