Last week Beyonce caused a sensation when she revealed her new pixie haircut via her Instagram account. Yet today the superstar was spotted with a chin length bob as she went to lunch with her husband, Jay-Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy, in Miami. Beyonce was in South Florida to shoot a music video while Jay-Z was there to perform as part of his Legends of Summer Tour.
Beyonce has rocked long hair since she debuted with her former group, Destiny’s Child in the late 1990s. In recent years, Beyonce has had honey blonde tresses almost exclusively, but she has also worn her hair black, brown and red.
In a statement Beyonce’s long time hairstylist, Kim Kimble, revealed that the singer didn’t simply don a short wig to unveil a new look, “She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement.” Kimble, who owns a hair salon in LA and has a reality TV show on the WE network, LA Hair, revealed that she was shocked when she saw the singer’s transformation on Instagram last week. “I got a little teary eyed! I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out.”
There is no way of knowing whether or not Beyonce’s new look is the result of extensions, weave or whether Mrs. Carter has actually donned a wig. Beyonce’s camp has remained mum about her new hairstyle.
Jay-Z and Beyonce enjoyed some family time with Blue Ivy in Miami, before Jay-Z has to jet off to the UK for more performances. The power couple will perform together for Jay-Z’s Made in America festival in Philadelphia, PA on Labor Day.
