Must See: Beyonce Debuts New Short Hair ‘Do

Published: Thursday 8th Aug 2013 by Sam

“I’m A Grown Woman…and I can do what ever I want!”

Famed for her luscious long locs, Beyonce took to Instagram today to showcase a bold new look.

Seemingly on a shoot of sorts (…), King B debuted a new shorter, cropped hair do, one a world away from the golden tresses she’s whipped across many a stage.

On a break of sorts since wrapping up the first US leg of her ‘Mrs Carter Show World Tour’, few details are known about the rationale (if any) for the new ‘do. What is certain, though, is that more pics await after the jump…

      No, she is known for being beyonce not for her wigs. You need a love seat thanks and bye… oh and by the way rihanna wasn’t the first to cut/have short hair and she won’t be the last.

      Janet teas. Janet was doing this before there was a halle berry in hollywood. Since she was a t***. Janet did the same the same thing again when she was on her last tour…

      • ETONE August 8, 2013


        it doesn’t look rite, who convinced her to do this
        Jayz you asshole.

      • Jas August 8, 2013


        B**** nobody is trying to look like RihE.T.’s scientific looking ass!

  2. Awe August 8, 2013

  3. Beyawnce August 8, 2013

    She’s pretty in second picture but the sbort hair dont suit her

    • Mwah August 8, 2013

      I love your avi

  4. Honnesty August 8, 2013

    I personally like it, change WAS needed.
    Any drastic alteration to a celeb like this is gonna take some getting used to.
    Maybe this means the new album is even closer……..

  5. Baldandall August 8, 2013

    the king looks beautiful! her eyes are gorge!!!

  6. mildred August 8, 2013

    Oh my I love this change,since she has been carrying long heirs for a while, she does not change heir style anytime she is about to release a new album. So its nice

  7. JJFan1814 August 8, 2013

    Joseline Hernandez teas, extra sugar cubes please.

    Queen Rih does short hair the best. Telling you when Rihanna stays trendsetting whether it’s music, hair, fashion, whatever.

    I guess Bey, it doesn’t look bad, maybe its start of a new era.

    I figured she just got her actual weave snatched and had this q-tip styled hair just sitting beneath all along. It’s cute. No more lacefronts blowing in the wind, sadly. 🙁 Guess she learned her lesson with that fan.

    Please leak ‘Standing On The Sun’

    • Kisses Down Low August 8, 2013

      Joseline Hernandez? You can find the Rihanna at the carnival post in the most juicy….

  8. JJFan1814 August 8, 2013

    We all know her hair isn’t growing longer than this. Maybe she and Donald Trump is in a joint venture for a new line of toupees for women, particularly with alopecia//cancer.

    She looks like a recovering alopecia victim.

  9. MK August 8, 2013

    Miley looks great here

  10. JJFan1814 August 8, 2013

    Rogaine please.

  11. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) August 8, 2013

    Mother Bee wtf is this? Me no like. #grower

  12. Nika August 8, 2013

    I like it. Not a fan of Beyone but she looks pretty. Very classy.

  13. Kisses Down Low August 8, 2013


    • Awe August 8, 2013

      stop lying

  14. Mwah August 8, 2013

    I like it imma need to see a non posey picture theres one on @Beyoncelite and it looks really nice. And watch the navy start talking about Rihanna. How many women have done the pixie cut both before and after that big forehead b****.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 8, 2013

      halle berry Did it before Rihanna.

      But The Big-foreheaded S*** had What it takes to make it a fashion Trend for how many Years now ?
      the same goes with the Legit red hair color from the LOUD era.

      We don’t say it is exclusively Rihanna, that would be so dumb to say, Also bey did rock the same hairstyle in “Cadillac records” .

      The navy are not that Dumb as you think…. 🙄

      • Mwah August 8, 2013

        No YOU dont say it. Many other Navy members do.

  15. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 8, 2013

    Of course The Hive are not Used to Drastic changes in Hair-Styles, So it will take Much longer to grow on them.

    Come friends, We Navy can teach you something or two. 😆

    But Remember, it is her Head, She can do whatever with it, no hard feelings.

    4/5 and i like it , hope she goes Edgy with it, Hope she become Brave More, she can do it.

  16. Thando August 8, 2013

    I am an African homosexual man. But Beyonce (along with Halle Berry, Sophia Vargara, Salma Hayek) are the few women who succeed in giving me an erection.

    I can’t help but be sexually enticed by this woman. Her voluptuousness, her almost celestial yellow skin, those eyes. Beyonce is sexier than she looks, her husband is an extremely fortunate man. I’m sure he pinches himself every night saying “how the hell did I end up with his woman (helen of troy)”.

  17. Thando August 8, 2013

    To all the Beyonce fans: What race is she, I am not entirely convinced that this woman is “African” American. She is too yellow. (I hope this doesn’t sound too racist for America society)

    • Micks August 8, 2013

      Her mother is Creole and has a bloodline mix of French and Native American.

    • Micks August 8, 2013

      As much as people hate to admit (dont ask me why) Beyonce is mixed on her maternal side.

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      I hope u know that “African American” people come in all different shades. Not just dark. And yes she is creole but she’s also black and she DOES look black.

      • Yolo August 8, 2013

        Of course she looks black but she looks like there is mix in her too and not just because of her skin tone. Her facial features.

    • stephanie August 8, 2013

      And her father???? iS BLACK!?! Also check your history – what is CREOLE??? Apart from the states they can be found in Sierra Leone. Blacks come in all shades – i am Nigerian and we have yellow/ very light skinned people with no white or native blood. She is BLACK!

      • Drew August 8, 2013

        Beyonce has French WHITE ancestory. #FACT. Look up Joseph Broussard. And check her family tree. She has French, Irish and Native American in her. Its only fact why are people so defensive? Yeah she is black, and she calls her African Anerican does she not but she has mix in her.

      • Drew August 8, 2013

        calls herself African American*

  18. Micks August 8, 2013

    This look is fire. I think at first people will love it or hate it. But if she keeps it and we see her walking down the street with it and stuff it will grown on people.

  19. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

    I love it! It doesn’t hurt to try something new once in a while. She actually looks very beautiful and classy I fell that it really suits her.hopefully this means she won’t be afraid to experiment in near future. This could probably mean the new era is about to start! #BEYHERENOW

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013


  20. NΛVI August 8, 2013

    Rihanna and ha impact!!!!!
    I thought hoodhive said she shouldn’t change her look and that’s for gimmicks and untalented h***… now they up in here acting like it’s a revolution! lmao messy.

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      Girl plz. I knew u delusional ass navies were gonna compare her to Rihanna. If she was really gonna go for a Rihanna look she would have dyed it black.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

      REACH! REACHING FOR THE DAMN MOON! Of course the nazi wouldn’t like it. Feel a bit too ashamed that she rocked it better than their fave. *plays bow down opera*

      • Dray August 8, 2013

        Huntys. . if the Hive can just be honest and face reality for a second, they KNOW Bey is trying to acquire the edge and pure impact Rih has–and Rih just does it naturally. The Hive has been cafished so much by their fav they don’t know what is reality and what is not.

      • Davis August 8, 2013

        No. Shes just changing her style because she is maturing. That’s more likely.

  21. Emmy August 8, 2013

    OMG this is sooo weird like BEYONCE where you at girl? The big locks are like her trademark! *Cries*

    This is officially National Beyoncé Cuts hair day/Take out your weaves day.

    But I get a change was needed and I can imagine it looking really nice the more she wears it. She could do a little quif at the front shed look so cute. I like it.

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      Shut up. she doesn’t have to stay the same forever.

  22. HONEY BEE August 8, 2013

    i don’t like this look..make her look much older she should of left the long hair but died in jet black!!

  23. Emmy August 8, 2013

    And Beyoncé never changes her look let alone every other month she is allowed a hair cut. She didn’t even change the color. Its hardly attention seeking or a gimmick

  24. Bey Is Grown August 8, 2013

    She looks gorgeous.

  25. Fran August 8, 2013

    She has high cheekbones so she will carry it off. She should do a more natural pose the second picture is too forced the first and last pictures are beautiful.

  26. MRB August 8, 2013

    I think this cut is FIRE on her! Eventually she was gonna cut it short! Most women who have kids cut there hair for those on the move days. I don’t this cut will be on her tour stages but while she’s at home on the go she will rock this out! It was time for a change anyway we all know she wears wigs so im sure she will never forget where she comes from.

  27. . : : H 2 O : : . August 8, 2013

    Yes Bey YESSSS!!!!! I L0VE it!!!

    Please let this be a first step in a RADICAL CHANGE for Bey’s personality, her fashion, her looks, styles ……. Her music, her videos



      sounds like you wnt her to turn into the legedary Rihanna 🙂 aweee

  28. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 8, 2013

    It’s not a new hairstyle, her weave just got snatched.

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      WEAK. Try again.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

      Yes,she snatched her own wig.No one else was slayworthy to do it.

      • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

        ^co sign.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 8, 2013

      On Pollstar? Forbes?


  29. Love Life August 8, 2013

    I am HERE for this she is really pretty. No shade I was starting to forget how pretty she was thanks to that lions mane. Even she wasnt bothering with it towards the end. This just shows off her face she looks a much fresher.

  30. Anthony_JCRM August 8, 2013

    I guess she said to herself, aint nobody or thing gonna try and snatch my lacefront ever again! LOL, Looks nice though. Makes her look like a “Grown Women”..

  31. Dray August 8, 2013

    The Rihanna impact is AWESOME to behold.

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

      B**** just shut up

      • Dray August 8, 2013

        Truth hurts. . .I know. . . as I walk from the thread singing Right Now. . . . .

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      Rihanna has impact but she’s not the only black woman in history to go short (Halle berry, fefe Dobson)

      • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

        @DRAY u sound dumb as f***. That rihanna impact? REALLY? How many times has that shade been used before? *plays me myself and i*

  32. Butreallytho August 8, 2013

    ….. Its just a short lace front, y’all acting like she cut her real hair.

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      Looks like her real hair tho.

  33. Rellz August 8, 2013

    Actually, its Halle Berry and Charlize Therons impact. But now, since everyone has been sent into disarray over this… Its Beyonces impact. The girl cuts her hair and its major headline news. Someone else gets into fake internet beefs with other celebs and only the urban blogs care.

  34. Sterling Infinity #MentalHybrid August 8, 2013

    hot damn. hot damn. hot damn! i want U so bad right now Beyonce

  35. Daniel Teflon August 8, 2013

    Either way Short or Long her look SALES!! She is of course BEYONCE!! Not mad she’s doing things her way!!

  36. Yolo August 8, 2013

    So much facial slayage

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

      This hair is giving me LIFFFFEEEE!!!!! Why didn’t she think of this long time ago the long weave got boring

  37. Tea Drinker August 8, 2013

    She looks better than 90% of the girls in the game that are “younger” than her. It brings out the features in her face.

    I’m sure the diaper wearing qweens are upset but who cares they always mad.

  38. . : : H 2 O : : . August 8, 2013

    What Rihanna impact?

    So Rihanna invented short blond hair now?

    What “inspired” Bey to rock that haircut would be Rihanna, but NOT Cadillac Records, NOT “Me”, Myself and I” vid, which are more similar to this look than anything Rihanna has ever done?

    Reminds me of how Bey was “inspired” by “If It’s Lovin’ That You Want” (2005?) vid for her H&M commercial when that vid was basically nothing but a mix of “Baby Boy” (2003) x “Survivor” (2000) …

    FAIL, RIhanna Navy!


    Take your WEAK s*** somewhere else and STOP trying to make your fav’s “impact” happen … Just stop embarrassing yourselves…….

    • The Boy Toy August 8, 2013

      Calm down boo. Did someone strike a nerve? 😆

    • Fierce & all August 8, 2013

      @theboytoy was she lying though??

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 8, 2013


    • Dray August 8, 2013

      It’s already happened and FACT. . . Bow Dow is just like your favs career–DOWN. The desperation at this point is very evident. If you can’t beat them–try to be them–or steal from them (you know how your fav does–no lies)

      • Yaz August 8, 2013

        Lool the navys struggle and delusion. Its so funny. Keep it coming.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 8, 2013

        If my fav’s career is “down” when she’s made $53 million+ for 2013 while doing almost nothing, what does that make Rihanna who’s made $10 million less despite releasing albums, singles and touring non stop?

        A NEVER-WAS career?


        Hell, your fav is not even keeping 6% her tour earnings according to S&M video lawsuite — A lawsuite that Rihanna LOST, and happens to be bigger than any Beyonce lawsuite related to plagiarism/copyrights/creadits when Bey is suppostedly the one who “steals” ..

        ❓ ❗

      • Dray August 8, 2013

        Bottom line. . . right now. .right now. .musically your fav is irrelevant. You know it’s true. She is fueled by the flames of yesteryear like Diana Ross or any other who has been and is now gone. How long has she “catfished” the hive with that new album?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . August 8, 2013

        She’s musically irrelevant because she’s still yet to release any new music? Yes, but she does have new music on the way, and you never know, she might do IASF numbers all over again!

        It’s a matter of nothing but time..

        For now, it looks like she wants to FOCUS on her $200M+ tour until 2014 or something … She wants to give time to both her tour and later her new era, not do both of them in the same time ………..

  39. channel_ROMAN August 8, 2013

    The long weave was really getting boring and frizzy. THIS IS MUCH BETTER.

  40. Molly August 8, 2013

    Short hair is not her thing.

  41. The Boy Toy August 8, 2013

    No shade, but the pixie cut ages her. She should go back to the Me Myself and I bob in a different color.

  42. Ashley xo August 8, 2013

    The top picture reflection is giving me so much life. Not a huge fan of hers but she looks so good and mature in a good way. I can just picture her with this hair in maxi dress with Jay Z on holiday. Gorgeous.

  43. Cici Slaaaays August 8, 2013

    No she looks so basic with that cut her face wasn’t built for short hair.

    • Jas August 8, 2013

      No, b**** Ciara’s face isn’t built for short hair. She totally let Nicki out shine her in her own “Im Out” video smdh.

  44. Os August 8, 2013

    that look really looks good to me,in my opinion.

  45. Third Ward Trill (aka quetta) August 8, 2013

    Like Rellz said, this is beyonce impact. People are going crazy talking about it. Don’t be surprised if cnn starts talking about it lol

    • Cici Slaaaays August 8, 2013

      no one cares f*** her impact

    • Dray August 8, 2013

      The bitter irony of it all. . . .Kiiii. . . . .just smiles and shakes head. . . the bitter irony

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 8, 2013

      Was Quetta lying tho?

  46. Dray August 8, 2013

    Smiles. .I get it as you listen to your me, myself and I. .you’re doing Old School. . . .Throw back Thursday. Yes nostalgia is a bytch and you and your fav are feeling it completeley. That Reign got your mind–and you know the ONE I speak of.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . August 8, 2013

      Only thing getting my MIND is your fav’s tour receipts … and how she got SNATCHED in coins this year by Beyonce who hadn’t even finished recording her album OR started played one date past the the European leg of her tour ……..

      I couldn’t stop laughing for weeks!!!

  47. Yaz August 8, 2013

    Love it!

  48. Kyle August 8, 2013

    The kids dont know, they think anyone who cuts their hair is inspired by Rihanna. Whatever makes them feel important I guess. Btw Beyonce looks beautiful. I cant wait to see her rocking it elsewhere. And I cant at her trending WW at 2am this morning. Beyonce remains on everyones mind with everything she does while you fave claws for attention.

  49. fatusankoh August 8, 2013

    I love it Chang is good she look beautiful you go bey by the way she can always wear wege on stage

  50. Rihking August 8, 2013

    The rihanna impact though.b**** you are not queen rih you can’t get away with every hairstyle like rih can you look like a damn man

  51. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) August 8, 2013

    Hhmm…Idk Bey. It’ll have to grow on me I guess…

  52. Little Monster August 8, 2013

    So fresh and gorgeous. Rihanna can only wear styles that sweep over ginormous forehead. Even her pixie cut had to come down. Full of illusions. Beyonce can sweep hers off her face. She looks gorge.

  53. Little Monster August 8, 2013

    Gaga and Beyonce are the only ones who can break down the internet like this. While your fave drops her draws on social networking for attention. And just gets dragged on local blogs.

  54. Krissy August 8, 2013

    Tinkerbell tease. Its cute.

  55. JER August 8, 2013

    This hair has been worked by many an R&B diva: Toni, Mary, etc but lets not act like Rihanna wasnt just working this hair 6 months ago. Ch…

    • Drew August 8, 2013


  56. Barb B**** August 8, 2013

    She looks very classy and sophisticated. Its about time the other weave looked like it was bringing her down.



  58. Davis August 8, 2013

    Yes maam I am definitely feelin this!

  59. Smurf August 8, 2013

    It’s not bad, but I do think it makes her look like 40.
    Maybe a darker shade would look better
