The Person Most Shocked By Beyoncé's Short Hair: Her Stylist!

When Beyoncé posted the cut seen ’round the world on Instagram last night, there was one person more shocked than most: Her stylist Kim Kimble.

Kimble, the star of We TV’s L.A. Hair and Beyoncé’s longtime stylist, had drawn up a whole hair concept for a video they were shooting together this weekend — and now she has to go back to the drawing board.

“I had a whole plan laid out … I wanted to do a retro ‘50s type of hair. I feel like there’s going to be a meeting soon!” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “It won’t be the long, wavy, typical hair, but I’m really excited to do something different. No matter what, she knows I’ll give her what she wants!”

Kimble says her reaction upon seeing the new do on Instagram Wednesday night was more than surprised — it was emotional. “I got a little teary eyed!” she confesses. “I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too. Maybe I’ll cut my hair off now. Short hair, don’t care!”

And despite many commenters speculating Beyoncé just removed her weave or extensions, Kimble says, “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement. It’s a great [one] to make: I’m beautiful, sexy, bold and I can do it all. She’s the perfect model for that: A working woman, mom, superstar, businesswoman. She’s powerful in herself. “

So what does Kimble have in mind for this particular superstar at Saturday’s video shoot? She’s still working on the concept, but she’s excited to experiment with the star’s new “easy, effortless style” — whether she plays up her natural curls or goes for something more sleek — and she plans to experiment with grooming creams, waxes and her own shine serum.

But regardless of what anyone else thinks of the style (and we’re loving it!) “It had to be her decision,” Kimble says. “This was a big step, and it’s perfect timing.” For lots more of Kimble’s high-profile hair clients, watch L.A. Hair on We TV Thursdays at 9:00 EST and check out her website, then tell us: Would you ever go super short? What statement do you think B is trying to make?

Really? A whole article about a haircut and how it is shocking to the world? We have become a sad nation if this is what is shocking to us. Yes, I read the article, but it was mostly to laugh about the absurdity that was reported on and to read the other comments.

Not her most attractive look, but if she’s happy with it, more power to her. Sometimes it’s fun to just do something different.

It looks like her song ‘If I was a Boy’ is coming true…. lol

Not sure what to think bout the comments because she does have long hair and it’s not impossible for that. We all know there were some extensions, but he hair was not short.

Please, Ms.Carter looks good anyway. She would look good bald headed. B. , feel the freedom. I luv it
