Did Beyoncé Chop Her Hair Into a Pixie?

Are you sitting down? Good, because we have some paradigm-shifting news for you: It appears that Beyoncé has cut off all her hair.

We’ve seen the superstar with pretty much every hairstyle (wigs included) under the sun, from blonde to brunette and waves to braids. But with the exception of the short wig she wore to play Etta James in Cadillac Records, she’s never had hair above her chin — until now.

And in a series of Instagram photos she posted late Wednesday night, her new look appears to be the real deal. A close-up shot shows the wispy new layers framing her face; in other pics, Beyoncé appears to still be getting used to the new do, touching the nape of her neck tenatively.

A practical mom-on-the-go do decision? A “hipster in Brooklyn” move of shear genius? The work of someone tired of wearing a full head of hair all the time — or just a trick with a really good wig? Only time will tell. But with plenty of tour dates on her Mrs. Carter Show tour left to go, we look forward to seeing what she’ll be whipping around the stage should this cut be permanent.

Tell us: Do you like Beyoncé with a pixie? And be sure to show us your fierce short haircuts here!

You do know this is just her REAL hair??? Guess that fan scare with the weave really shook her up. LOL…. I applaud her for coming out. Now let’s see if she’ll move on from the perm like her sister. Go B!

Maybe she got fed up after the recent attacked-by-the-fan incident at her concert! ;)

White people are dumb, this is her natural hair, she took out the weave and is letting her head breathe a bit.

Also, kudos for her for not being afraid to go natural, she looks gorgeous, #embracenaturalbeauty

I quite like this simple, earthy look. It’s a nice change from the big, bouncy locks. Sometimes you just need a no-fuss, hassle-free moment. Good for her, hope she rocks it for a bit!

She was unattractive with fake hair,she’s equally unattractive with short hair.

Ouch. I’m sure she just wanted something more manageable, but this cut and color makes her look like a drag queen.

Love it. She can wear any hair.

Beyonce’s hair was just as long as her weaves. Many people don’t know that, they simply judge her saying she’s worn weaves for 17 years. News flash: Black girls do have long natural hair, it does not have to be short to be natural. Her hair was below her bra strap for years.
