Beyonce has chopped off her famously long locks and debuted a new pixie haircut.

The singer, 31, posted three snaps on Instagram on Thursday showing off her new hairstyle that is no doubt going to inspire a new trend for very short hair.

It comes just a day after her last concert in Brooklyn, NY, where she sported long wavy hair.


Her longtime hairstylist Kim Kimble had no idea she was going to cut her hair, especially as Beyonce has a video to shoot this weekend which Kimble was planning to style a “retro 50’s type of hair.”

Kimble admitted she was really surprised and even emotional at seeing Beyonce’s new pixie cut on Instagram. “I got a little teary eyed!” she told People. “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.”


Beyonce has been a fan of weaves and extensions for years, enhanced by her own long hair. “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement,” said Kimble. “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. “
