Beyoncé Is Blonder Than Ever - Do You Like Her Platinum Do?

Not content to let Rihanna take the title of “most hair changes in 2013,” Beyoncé is making the most out of the last few weeks of this year by debuting her blondest hair yet — and there’s still time to try a couple more styles before the year’s out. (If she’s taking suggestions, we’d love to see her go dark brown and super-sleek!)

She’s been long, short and super-short; honey, caramel, and golden; curly, straight and braided. But she hasn’t yet been super-bright platinum, until now.

The star officially debuted her light and bright look at an L.A. Clippers game next to husband Jay Z (though she was seen rocking the the lighter hue a few days earlier while heading onto a video set — so the new platinum shade may be work-related). And aside from the courtside seats, high-wattage arm candy and top-notch new dye job, she could have been anyone else on a date with her husband Wednesday night, dressing casually in a white tee and red lipstick.

What do you think about B as an über-blonde? Should she keep it or do you like her hair a bit darker?

Black people do NOT have blonde hair. Stick to your original colour. You look like an IDIOT.

Guest on

Wow, her natural hair grew back so fast (rolls eyes)

Ally on

Beautiful woman, but not a good look. If she feels the need to lighten, maybe a rich caramel color would be best?

LisaLisa on

Keeping up with the Kardashians Are we??

Just_Jasmine on

It’s not her most flattering look. It’s a no for me.

Jeanette on

Beautiful woman, bad hair color!

Susan on

Didn’t think it could get worse. But what happened to her short hair!!?? LMAO!!

Moriah on

so what is black people do not have blonde hair…she’s pretty and looks good. the majority of White people do not have naturally tanned skin or full lips but they still get it…don’t hate Guest1709. She looks good!

heather on

looks horrible.

suzie on

Not even her hair, folks all extensions/wigs. Her hair is dark , fuzzy, coarse like all african american women, get a clue. She looks nothing like her picture when all thye fake stuff is gone..

kaya on

Yuck,not flattering for her at all,too unnatural looking.

fanofboardwalkempire on

I prefer the darker caramel color it was before -his is a bit too blond and doesn’t look natural. but Beyoncé is a beautiful woman and doesn’t look bad in anything really.

Ridiculous on

I give it 5 days tops before Kim Kartrashian has ridiculous blond hair like this too…at Kanye’s urging, of course.

jessica renee on

ouch. that’s awful.

Tiffany on

Her hair looks awful.

Shani on

Guest1709…I went to elementary school with a Black girl who had blonde hair and it was her natural color. Know your facts before you throw out untruths. So I guess black people don’t have natural blue or green eyes either right?

M on

Oh my dear lord…..

Sarah_TO on

Wow. She’s so beautiful but looks AWFUL here!

riano on

I think she should stay the way she is now. Beautiful

Nina on

Is it just me or has she really aged? She looks great but whoa…

kathy from fla on

Needs more caramel colored look. Don’t like new look.:(

thenitenurse on

Note to Beyoncé. Spend more time working on what you can do to improve the lives of the disadvantaged then working on your hair.

LK on

Why do this woman’s hair choices matter when clearly it is all FAKE?

I think Beyonce can pull off the deeper shade of blonde that is featured in the pic to the left. I’m a fan of hers and love her to pieces, but the platinum blonde clashes with her gorgeous skin tone. I say no to the platinum blonde look in the pic to the right. I read that she just shot some scenes for her new music video so I give her a pass. I just hope she doesn’t continue to walk around with that color on her head. For you ignorant people who think only white people can naturally grow blonde hair from their scalps, you’re wrong about that! A small percentage of black people can naturally grow blonde hair from out their scalps. The blonde hair color doesnt belong to white people and not every white person can grow the color from out their scalps. The majority of white people dye their hair just like Beyonce.Sheesh! Idiots!! lolz

soulmama on

It makes her look cheap –like a botched home bleach job in my opinion.

Dolores Herrera on

She looks like Rita Orr…

pl on

Whomever said black people do not have blonde hair needs to leave their small neighborhood and venture out into the world. My daughter has blonde hair and guess what? We are black. While the majority dont have blonde hair, dont lump everyone into one category. I guess blacks dont have gray, hazel or green eyes either?

Annie on

The people saying she is black are ignorant for talking of something they have no idea about. She is of African-American, French, Irish, Native American, Acadian and Creole dissent.

Jenny on

Oh girl, if you get bored this easily, something must be wrong! You look like a bad drag queen attempting to look like Beyoncé, lol. A man in a terrible, cheap wig añd really bad lip colour. Yikes!

Dina on

People Magazine you are way behind. Beyonce has done the light blond look before. She looks goo.


Cracks me up when people of color do this. I recall watching a talk show years ago, that had the topic of “white” women wearing corn rows. The “black” girls were going ape $hit crazy, screaming that “white people had NO RIGHT to have corn rows”, that they were “stealing their heritage” and all kinds of stuff. Yet it’s supposed to be ok for THEM to dye their hair blonde, wear blue contacts, etc…. And we’re not ALLOWED to say anything because THAT would be RACIST of US! Any-hoo, Mrs. Carter is beautiful, but IMO, that isn’t a great look for her. Too light.

Sherae on

OMG she looks HORRIBLE. I’ve noticed that when she is left to dress and style herself she looks awful. Maybe that’s intentional– I guess being dolled up 24/7 would be exhausting but sheesh…

Sherae on

White people aren’t tan and don’t have full lips and butts but they still try to pull it off, @Guest1709. And how many white bottle blondes and bottle brunettes are there in this world? Don’t be stupid.

indie on

I guess Jay Z likes blondes. Ugh.

TEXAS13 on

I don’t like her period no matter what color her hair is

jane on

i just don’t understand why black people are so obsessed with bleaching their hair to blonde. it’s not flattering at all. i have yet to see even one black person with blonde hair that is actually flattering. the people who look even worse though with bleached hair are asians as their turns pukey orange. why can’t these people just embrace what nature gave them and stop trying to be something they’re not?!

krtmom on


Ranae on

Yuk. Looks horrible. I agree, stick to your natural color or at least something that blends better.

Tina on

@Guest1709, true that Black people generally do not have blonde hair. But, not all white people have blonde hair and they can still where a different color. If you look good in it, wear it. White people are generally not tanned. Yet, they can get that way if they want to. I don’t think anyone has exclusive rights on a certain look. However, I’ll agree that not everyone looks good with every look.

Dannie on

In reply to guest 1709, google “people of Solomon Island” and tell me again that black people don’t have blond hair. Yes, we come in all shades, sizes, and hair colors!!!!

ramart on

She is such a beautiful person inside and out. She can rock anything wheather she were BLACK or WHITE. Who cares what color she is. People tend to focus more on what color someone is rather then the talent they have or what type of person they are. If you are a BEAUTIFUL person then you are just that regardless of what color you are.

Sharon on

Bleach, Bleach, Bleach!

OU girl on

For the record, she was at an OKC Thunder game. They just happen to be playing the Clippers. And while Jay Z was very sweet to the few fans that approached them, Beyoncé could not be bothered. So regardless of her hair and how pretty she is on the outside, didn’t seem very pretty on the inside. Sad.

Rachel on

“If you’re Beyonce, why are you white?”

Icon on

That look awful.

rie on

Sorry..but Beyonce is looking like a black & mild! Very unflattering color for her. It looks like she dumped peroxide and bleach on he cheap looking “hair” and prayed for the best! Girl, you have all the money and then some..get yourself to the salon ASAP and get that train wreck fixed!

Fatima on

Beyonce, I love you, but this hair color is not working for you. “seriously” it’s time for you to retire the blonde hair period. you are 32 and a mother of a almost 2 year old, instead of being trendy & edgy with her looks like you were when you in your teens & 20s, go for a mature, sexier, classy, cool look. maybe dye your hair a darker color (like a dirty blonde, chestnut brown, hazel brown, burnett , red or a much deeper blonde) but this super platinum blonde hair isn’t working at all. I hope by the time her new album comes out that she will have a much better sexier, beautiful, classier, cooler new look.

Hazel on

Is she ashamed of her own ‘natural’ hair?…just wondering why an African American woman would go so drastic a hair color that is meant for much lighter skin.

cypresstex on

of course she’s blond – she and her BFF Gwen Paltrow are white

mia.paloma on

Platinum wig.. Prolly trying to stay blonder than Kim K. Wish there was a law where celebrities had to wear their real hair and skip the wigs and extensions. Most would look average.

no on

No Beyonce looks older with platinum hair.Beyonce should stick to her honey shade.Look at the weave the roots don’t match and the hair is scraggly.Platinum is not a shade for everyone .Kinda tired of seeing this shade on other celebs and it ages them terribly like Christina (Marilyn Monroe) wannabe Aguilera as well as these other Marilyn wannabe’s that use the platinum and look terrible Lindsay Lohan,Kim Kardshian,Rita Ora just terrible.
