Beyonce is in an experimental mood when it comes to her hair.
The singer was recently spotted rocking a bob cut and hippy hairband while out with husband Jay-Z. The site jokingly compared Bey’s new look to 90210 star Tori Spelling’s haircut.
Just a short while ago, Beyonce made headlines by cutting off her trademark, long tresses and wearing a short pixie cut. Many quickly drew comparisons between this new ‘do and Miley Cyrus’ look. At the time, industry experts touted that this would be the new look that everyone would copy. “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.
Bey’s colorist, Rita Hazan, spoke to about why Bey decided to make the shorter change. “I was shocked. I think she was just feeling empowered, like a strong woman, and she said she’s been feeling it for a long time,” Hazan told US Weekly. “She didn’t want to hide behind her hair in real life.”
Hazan applauded Beyonce for ditching her extensions and going au naturel. “I’m so happy because the extensions give women the wrong expectation of what their hair should look like — it’s great for onstage, but everyday women shouldn’t have or want to have five pounds of hair on their head. This hair is more natural, more realistic.”
