Beyonce Ditches Pixie Cut For Short Bob

After shearing off her long locks a week-and-a-half ago (shocking everyone, including her stylist!), Beyonce stepped out sporting her new hair during a performance at England’s V Festival on Saturday.

The superstar rocked the stage with a sleek, chin-length bob – seemingly with the help of extensions, as her hair was longer than her original pixie crop.

The 31-year-old first debuted her short blond pixie cut on August 8 on Instagram.

The “Grown Woman” singer showed off her new look in three photos, just days after wrapping her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Brooklyn, New York.

With the exception of sporting a short blond wig in “Cadillac Records” while playing singing legend Etta James, the star is known for her long hair (extensions and wigs included!) with styles ranging from waves to braids, in both blond to brunette.

Bey’s longtime stylist, Kim Kimble, was shocked by the singer’s sudden cut, and had to make last minute design changes for a music video the star was set to shoot just three days later.

“She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement,” Kim told People at the time. “It’s a great [one] to make: I’m beautiful, sexy, bold and I can do it all.”
