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 was kind of annoyed by how much buzz her pixie cut created last week. People were acting as if she didn’t have the resources (time, money, a stylist) to quickly change her hair if she didn’t like it. This new bob proves that last week’s ‘big change’ wasn’t really that big of a deal.

Duh! on

To everybody posting “it’s a weave, it’s a weave!”…..well aren’t you captain obvious! Nobody is trying to make you believe this is her real hair (especially after seeing her with the pixie cut last week).

Is the author drinking? People USE to be something I look forward to reading now it’s become the Enquirer!

She needs to stop bleaching her skin. Ms Dragon Breath is an idiot…fat, horrendous legs and body…and she shrieks when she “sings”. Who the heck cares about her fake-as* hair???

I bet it’s a wig. I actually liked the pixie on her. Really brought out her cheekbones.

I liked the pixie on her as it brought out her cheekbones. I bet the new ‘do is a wig.

Suzieq: I thought the same thing. Could People Magazine kiss her butt anymore?

I think she forgets she is not a natural blond and that she wont ever be what she wish s he could white. Lesrn to love and accept what your parents gave you and stop being ashamed. Same thing with the other fake blond n blue people.

Never believed she cut her hair into a pixie & who really cares. NOT ME…not a fan of her. What makes her think we want to see her bra under that t-shirt…shows no respect for herself or her daughter
