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!

It’s cute but I prefer the big hair because she has a head and face that can pull it off.

My hair has been that short since I was 24, back in 1984. Was sporting the do wayyy before Halle, Miley, Beyonce. Why are hair styles just a big deal in the news? Write a story about me.

She looks good. To me it looks like she just removed her weave.

Pacificgirl on

She took the weave out…No big deal.

The new cut looks great on Beyonce. Nice choice!

Hate It on

Why do so many women make this blunder.

My opinion: Short hair NEVER looks better on a woman than long hair.

It looks nice. She probably had to cut it off after all these years of weaves, relaxers, blowing and curling.

She didn’t cut it short, she just took the 2 ft long horse hair out…
