Beyonce got a haircut. And not just any old trim: The songstress cut ALL her hair off. Maybe she pulled her neck doing so many hair flips, or maybe that whole hair-stuck-in-fan incident really traumatized her, or, perhaps, she was inspired by Rihanna’s new crop–whatever the reason, Bey now has a pixie cut. We know, it took us several moments to process that too. I grew up admiring her mane from a distance, always wishing for it.

It’s not that we don’t love Bey’s new ‘do. It’s alright. All the same, we can’t help but feel a little wistful thinking about her long locks. Her hair is an essential part of every performance she gives. Seriously, we’re a little confused as to how she’ll replace those hair-flipping moves in her choreography. Anyway, we’ll say RIP long, flipping like, gorgeous mane of Bey – you will be greatly missed.
