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 amazes how such an ordinary looking woman with little talent gets this much attention. And neither this nor the ‘pixie’ looks good on her.

The pixie cut was shorter that what she has now. How come it’s longer now> Wig or Weave?

That haircut is called an A-line bob. T-boz from TLC rocked it in the 90’s and it looks much better if you have body with it. To tell you the truth, my 6 year-old has it as her haircut and it looks great but on Bey it is disqusting!!!!

She should ditch fake hair altogether. Just have short real hair or a fro like solange. She is NOT an attractive woman. Its all smoke and mirrors. She should try to be herself. Her kid will have black people hair, so should she. Why do black women think they look good blonde? Hahahah its so awkward for them. #nofakehair #beblackifyouareblack

Tired of articles about beyonces fake hairdos. She has no real hair. Its wigs and extensions. Quit reporting on it, and quit calling her queen. She will never be royalty. More like dragqueen with the prosthetics and pounds of makeup. #fakeisout #overit
