Beyonce Knowles debuted a short pixie haircut on social networking site Instagram and critics are speculating whether the singer's recent hair drama may have inspired the new do.
In July the Grammy award-winning singer's trademark blonde locks got caught in a fan on stage while she was performing "Halo" as part of her Mrs. Carter world tour in Montreal. While the Hollywood star was able to laugh off the incident, fans have questioned whether the mishap may have influenced her to remove her beloved hair extenions and adopt the edgy new look.
"Gravity cant begiiiiiiiin to pull me out of the fan again. I felt my hair was yankiiiiiiiin, From the fan that's always hatiiiiiiiin. Virgin Remy [and] Malaysiiiiiiaaaaaan haaaaaaaaa!! I got snatched '2 snaps.' Goodnight all, B," Beyonce wrote via Instagram after the fan incident while referncing her hair extensions.
In the viral new pictures Beyonce, 31, is seen gazing in a mirror with her hands placed on the back of her her new do. Her short tresses are neatly styled with a side-part on her right side.
"Oh So Beyonce Decided To Cut Her Hair Short After The Fan Incident Huh.. Wise Thinking!!" one of Beyonce's Twitter followers tweeted.
"Beyoncé cut her hair really short well at least it won't get stuck in a fan again," another noted.
"Beyonce hair gets caught in a fan, then all of a sudden she decides to cut it short. I don't blame ya girl. WEAVE IS DANGEROUS," another tweet read.
It is unclear who is responsible for Beyonce's drastic transfromation, but the singer previously admitted to cutting her own hair.
"I recently cut two inches myself - I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh!," Beyonce previously revealed in an interview with People magazine.
One person who will undoubtedly appreciate Beyonce's new look is her husband of five years, Jay Z. The singer, who shares a daughter with the rapper, previously revealed that the hip hop mogul prefers it when she is in her more "natural" state.
"I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn't wear heels. Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I'm buying loafers and oxfords. I love them because they're comfortable, and shorter heels too," Beyonce said.
"[My husband Jay Z] loves it when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising - he never saw me in flats before! He likes me more natural - just more relaxed, natural me," she added.
