Breaking news: Beyonce has very, very short hair! At least she does for the moment according to her Instagram feed. Having just seen the Queen Bey in concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Monday night (yes, the very one where her husband also graced the stage), this transformation from cascading, wind-machine-blown blonde curls to a super-cute-pixie cut is a startling one. What’s unsurprising of course is how beautiful she looks. While I realize that this coiffure (that harkens a sort of Hathaway-growing-out-a-Fantine ’do), doesn’t mean she’s hung up what I can only imagine to be a enviably extensive (and expensive) wig collection but *sigh* just look how this accentuates her brows. And her ever-expressive eyes are even more vibrant.

And don’t even get me started on the voyeuristic relish of seeing a Beyonce in enough of a state of repose that we can see her darker roots peeking out from beneath the flaxen. It’s so exciting. And while it may seem that we’re being let in on some secret chink in the armor or that, lo, Beyonce is JUST LIKE US, the ombre effect actually makes her seem down-to-earth in a way that is of course also a Jedi Mind Trick. Now she looks as gorgeous as ever but also, interestingly, a shade wiser. And, of course (lest we forget Bey is Bey), not a two-toned hair is out of place. Her nails are also duly pristine. I mean, honestly, it’s like three IG pics and every other drastic tonsorial change this year from color to cut has paled a hair (ahem). Bow down etc etc.
