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?

I thought the pixie cut was fierce. Think she might be reading to much into what people are saying about her now.

If running my world you mean that using that disaster resting atop Beyonce’s head as a cautionary tale of what NOT to do, then sure, I guess that her HBO (Hair Bought (from) Others) does run my world (eyeroll).

sorry Bey thats not for you the pixie cut was much better and fresh

Please People magazine… DO NOT NAME HER HAIR!! I’m absolutely sure that wigs come with their own names when you buy them!! Her hair is not a story!

I got a haircut yesterday… And it’s my REAL hair! You should call me for a statement!

ok on

I can cut my own hair like that too, i don’t even have to have the light in the room. But i bet she spent a few hundred dollars for the cut.

She's Brantastic on

I love the way the cut looks in the back but the long pieces in the front look a bit messy and need the touch of a flat iron. I think it’s funny that People magazine is so interested in Beyonce’s hairstyles but they pretty much will run stories like this anytime a celebrity changes hair color, length or style. And I could care less if it’s her hair or a weave/wig/extensions…LOTS of celebrities of all races get hair added on (many get extensions for length or extra fullness) so personally I think it’s a waste of time when people obsess over the fact that it isn’t “her” hair.

Love it…..I bet all of her adoring fans who just got pixie cuts are in tears…..because unlike a celebrity we regular folk can’t afford to go get extension a week after we realize what a mistake it was to cut our hair and inch from our heads……lol

Im sure she spent a fortune on that haircut …a 2 yr. old could have done better!
