Beyonce has a pixie
Beyonce has a new haircut. The style is known as a pixie and to get it she had her beautiful long lockscut off.
She showed off her pixie in three photos from her dressing room posted to her more than five million instagram followers.
Beyonce's fans get their first look at the new hairstyle in this instagram photo.
Reaction was immediate most of it supportive Here are some samples:
"You are a grown women and its your hair, so you style it however you want to. I love your hair!!!"
"With a face like that you can't ever go wrong with a hairstyle."
"Beyonce’s new hair is proofthat the woman can do no wrong. She would look gorgeousbaldand dressed in a potato sack"
Not everyone approved, however. Fellow singer Rebecca Black had a very strong response to the superstar's new hairdo "BEYONCE NO."
Another instragram follower just asked "Why????????????"
(Beyonce's hair was recently caught in an electric fan during a concert, so that might be the answer.)
Still another follower thought it just didn't fither face: I know my opiniondoesn’t count for much, but I don’t like Beyonce’s new haircut. It suits Rihanna more.
Many of her disapprovingfans probably agreed with this follower's comment: "I still love Beyonce ... even with that hideoushaircut."
