It’s the haircut that could launch a thousand, er, snips. Beyoncé debuted a dramatically shorter new ‘do on Instagram last night, much to the shock of her social media fans.
The blonde pixie cut — reminiscent of Mia Farrow and Audrey Hepburn — had everyone commenting. Even Mindy Kaling took time out from Entertainment Weekly’s New Hollywood party to tweet: “HOLY S*%T BEYONCE HAS A PIXIE CUT”
And Kaling wasn’t the only one in shock.
After Beyoncé posted three photos offering a full look at her newly cropped hair, the images collected over a quarter of a million likes — and counting — each .
According to InStyle.com, colorist Rita Hazan and hairstylist Neal Farinah of the Neal Farinah Salon in Brooklyn were the masterminds of B’s bold, new look. “It’s a strong empowering statement,” Hazan said. “It’s modern and old Hollywood at the same time.” The colorist called the hue “Champagne Summer Blond,” explaining, “The cut is such a statement, the color had to be soft and sexy.”
