Beyoncé Gets an Inverted Bob: See It From All Angles

According to Beyoncé, girls run the world. But lets be real: Her hair runs our world.

One week after cutting off all her long blond waves into a bleach-blonde pixie cut (and igniting #shorthairdontcare fever), the singer has switched up her look once again. And the latest is totally different than any style we’ve seen on the star: an inverted bob. (The Bey Bob? The Boboncé? We’re still working on a name. Stay tuned.)

It’s a whole lot of look for one short hairstyle, so let’s break it down: Her strands are long and blonde in the front, dramatically shorter in the back and darker underneath (as seen on the layered sections).

Queen Bey accessorized her new bob with a golden Grecian-goddess-esque headband while out in Miami with Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

We wonder how her stylist Kim Kimble feels about this look. Kimble told PEOPLE she was completely blindsided when Beyoncé first chopped her locks. “I got a little teary eyed!” she confessed. “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.”

Tell us: What do you think of Beyoncé’s latest do? Do you like it better than her pixie?

It’s all fake hair, I knew she just took her weave out. I respect it when people grow out their real hair, not some exentions or weaves.

I think she did cut her hair in the pixie, not that ALL of the hair she had before was hers. She obviously wore wigs and weaves. There is even a picture of her online with the glue streak down the side of her head. I think she got so much flack over the pixie that she went back to wigs until she can let her hair grow out a bit for weaves. So much for that big announcement that she was empowering herself.
