Beyonce has surprised the world with a bold, new haircut. Bey, known for her long hair, posted photos on Instagram rocking a short, pixie cut. The chic look sparked immediate reactions from her die-hard Bey Hive fans and beyond.
“Moment of silence for Beyonce’s hair,” tweeted Janice Llamoca about the drastic change. Beauty personality Tai Beauchamp applauded Bey for trying something new. “So Beyonce’s causing quite a stir w/this new hair transformation I see. Well I say, go on girl.You know I’m a lover of the pixie cut anyway!”
Many were saddened to see Bey’s trademark, voluminous tresses gone. “I personally prefer her with the long curls. The short hair is a no from me,” said Mr. Bentley SA. Even rapper Wiz Khalifa, whose baby mama Amber Rose helped popularize the bald look in recent time, chimed in with his two cents. “Randomly, I think Lady Gaga is super cool. Oh and i like Beyonce’s hair.”

Comparisons to Miley Cyrus’ short ‘do and Rihanna’s quickly emerged with many wondering what sparked Beyonce makeover. “BEYONCE GOT THE MILEY CUT,” tweeted Molly Lambert. Many fans defended Beyonce. “Beyonce and Miley are gorgeous. Hair is so irrelevant,” countered Courtney Brousek.
Some industry experts are predicting that the short haircut will soon turn iconic; Beyonce has done it, other women will soon follow suit. “I assure you Beyoncé’s new haircut will be the hottest haircut to hit America since Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Rachel’ hairdo,’’ shared Damone Roberts, a Los Angeles based makeup artist, to The Daily Beast.
