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?

Why is a hairstyle such news? She is a singer…she does not run the world. This is beyond ridiculous!

Really come up with a name for a haircut! Give me a small break!!!! There is more to life then trying to come up with a name for a haircut, your staffers at People must be really really bored!

Oh come on! You can see it’s a wig by the part, not to mention that she’s using a headband to cover up the hairline. And People itself says that her hairdresser was upset because a pixie takes so long to grow out. More than your reported “one week.” !!! So Miracle Grow is better than just for the house plants?

That hairstyle is the Victoria Beckham, on whom it looked much better. I wonder if Beyonce got “the rachel” if they’d rename that, too.

Oh come on! The article itself says she got a pixie cut a week ago! And her hairdresser was upset because it takes so long to grow out. You can see this is a wig by the part, not to mention that she’s using a headband to cover up the hairline. I’m expecting to see ads that Miracle Grow can be used on more than just the house plants.
