Beyoncé Unveils Bold New Short Blonde Pixie Cut

Beyoncé has clearly been stalking RiRi’s Instagram account, because the mum-of-one has followed in the Bajan star’s footsteps and swapped her lustrous locks for a bold new pixie crop two days after wrapping up her The Mrs Carter Show World Tour. What a transformation!

The 31-year-old superstar showed off her sexy new short ‘do on her Instagram account, working her blonde crop in true Sasha Fierce style with a series of sultry selfies taken in the mirror. Teaming her quiffed coiff’ with a bold brow, barely-there eye make-up and a summery peach lip, Bey’s soft new look echoes her retro Etta James ‘do from Cadillac Records. But even shorter!

We wonder if Bey’s recent hair-raising on-stage incident, where she got her tumbling mane caught in a wind fan during her performance in Montreal, had anything to do with her decision to reach for the scissors?

Either way, we’re loving seeing the mum-of-one switch up her mane. And with Beyoncé’s Monday night Brooklyn show marking the end of her gruelling world tour, she won’t be needing those extra-long extensions for any on-stage hair-whipping anytime soon…

The Saturdays’ Frankie Sandford, Jessie J and most recently, Rihanna, have all traded their longer tresses for short tomboy ‘dos this summer, so at least Bey’s got plenty of showbiz hairspiration to nick styling ideas from.
