The world woke up this morning, logged on to Instagram, and saw what looked like Beyoncé with shockingly short hair. In three photos the singer posted late Wednesday night, her fresh, new crop appears to be the real thing. With everyone from Anne Hathaway to Léa Seydoux to Princess Charlene of Monaco lopping off their locks earlier this spring, shorn hair has proven to be the statement style of the summer. Over the years, Beyoncé has tried just about every look out there-bangs, braids, waves, blonde, brunette, stick straight, and wide-barrel curls-but she has never picked up the shears until now. Whether her transformative new cut is the result of her dramatic onstage encounter with a fan last month-or, more likely, a deliberate mid-tour style statement-we look forward to seeing how it plays out on her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, where hair-whipping is a highly anticipated trademark. All hail the new halo.
