Just in time for the holidays, Shakira debuted a new do on Twitter Tuesday. The Colombian singer, on holiday in Barcelona, popped into a salon and chopped several inches off of her hair.

According to photographers on the scene, the singer spent more than six hours inside the Jordi Ripoll salon, which opened just for her. After getting her cut — and posting a cute pic to Twitter (right) — Shakira reportedly went straight for boyfriend Gerard Pique‘s apartment.

Since Shakira has had pretty long locks for quite some time, the new style is definitely a change, but the sharp bob and fringe-y bangs — similar to Katy Perry’s new cut — are very flattering. Tell us: What do you think of Shakira’s new look?

You mean she cut her extensions… that was not her hair. She has had extensions for years

ana on

I got so used to her hair being long and beutiful no matter the colour that i never really pictured her with short hair. It’s nice but it’s not her. I mean sure she’s not 20 anymore she’s 34 she cant have the same look forever but this was sudden and completely unexpected. I stick to my opinion..she’s a long hair women. And i am a fan…

MommaD on

Her and Dianna Agron look alike

Sarah S. on

I like it a lot!

bea on

Cute hair cut. Shakira is beautiful and she doesn’t need blonde hair to be sexy. I think she looks amazing with her natural dark hair.

EVE on

Finally! an elegant age appropriate hairdo… her hair was damaged and now it’s beautiful.

Lilian on

Good thing she cut the extensions … She looks much better. But the color is horrid, if you want to be blond should go to a very good salon and fix it, sooooooooo yellow!

GirlinSC on

Ha! @MommaD – I thought the exact same thing!

Laila on

Ummm,nah…don’t like shorter on her…

She looks older with short hair

blahh they just need to break up already

pb on

Famous people, wether they are singers, actors, actresses – don’t “cut” their hair. They remove their extentions!!

Meems on

So you all put the extensions there and were there when she cut the hair? Maybe they are extensions maybe they are not. What the heck does it matter? She has a nice new hair style and it did take cutting HER hair to get it… You can’t add extensions to nothing AND if she paid for them it was her hair. Such negativity here.

GuesT on

Oh no no no!

tu es una latina… tu no es una rubia… usa su colour…use your natural colour you are Hispanic…like your hairstyle!

Rebecca on

I’m tired of hearing about all these “amazing star makeovers!” Granted, Shakira’s hair looks adorbs, but let call it what is is people…she took out her extensions, and cut off the damaged ends!

Katie on

I like it, but I agree with ana. She’s a long haired girl, and I think that’s how she’ll always look best.

Nikki on

She looks a lot like Dianna Agron in this picture. For a moment I thought it was her.

JJ on

Her hair was part of her trademark so I’m surprised she decided to go short. She’s gorgeous either way though!

MamLady on

Her hair was looking really damaged. I wonder why she doesn’t try going dark, she looks cute with light hair, but I think she would look great with dark, and not damage her hair so much.

yessir on

Home girl needs to put down the peroxide and go back to her natural, dark roots. It’s ridiculous that you have to go blonde and erase almost every trace of your ethnicity to “make it” in Hollywood. It’s kind of insulting actually.

Deskua on

She keeps on being the same “negrita”, whether they die her hair, chop it, whatever. She´s an indian.

Denise on

This is a ” I need to cut off all my dead hair cut” I know because I had to do it myself. She’ll get extensions again, trust me. The growing out faze of this cut is annoying.

amy on

cute cut, but i agree, the yellow sucks! she needs to stay with her natural hair color.

eh on

her make-up is THE WORST. Her foundation is too light, her lipstick has too much of a blue undertone. Even the blonde color in her hair is brassy. UGH. She could be SO much prettier if she warmed up her hair color and her make-up.

Joe on

Cut is just OK. The hair color isn’t very flattering at all. The lipstick color doesn’t suit her either. She’s usually such a stunner, this pic is waaay off for her!

Not everyone can be blonde…this color is horrendous. She should go more beige like J-Lo, would be soooooo much more flattering than this chicken-fat yellow she has. Yuck!

Lena on

I liked it better long it was more flattering on her and suited her style better but she’s had it long forever I’m sure she’s enjoying something different for a change.

Beth on

I like her hair cut! And I’ve seen pictures of her soccer player boyfriend. Gerard Pique is very handsome!

It’s cute but the color is extremely brassy!

Choyce2020 on

Love her sexy long hair but glad she’s trying a new look (everyone should)…either way she is gorgeous & way cute!!!

Abby on

She’s pretty no matter what but I do prefer her hair longer.

Melissa on

Maybe it’s just the difference in picture quality, but I think her long hair looked much better.

Oh no on

I prefer the long hair

rusty on

The short hair makes her look a lot older.

linda on

this honestly does not look good on her, she looks better with long hair. Another thing is that someone said she had hair extensions and i find that hard to believe bcuz she always had long beautiful hair specially when she started singing she had the long black hair check her out on youtube. What i really like about this pic is that she looks natural as if she never had anything done to her face she is gracefully aging and i hope she continues to do that and doesnt end up getting plastic Surgery.

J Fisher on

Every time People.com has anything about celebrities getting a haircut,the women thing it’s cute or beautiful or the best haircut yet.

I don’t like it. Shakira, keep the long locks.

Whether or not they are extensions, she looks sooooo much better with long, upkept hair. The short chopped up look, to me, looks so messy and upkept. She needs to stay blonde as well.
Thanks!

Myopinioncounts on

OOPS…that should read….
MESSY and UNKEPT.

Keep it long and styled!

SereiaM on

Put your hair extension back girl… That is your look :)
