OMG Beyonce Chopped Her Hair Off!
We could hardly believe it this morning when we caught sight of Queen B’s Instagram feed and saw this: Mrs. Carter has snipped her signature long, flowing curly locks and gone full-on boy cut.
We’re loving this ultra-short ‘do on the songstress. It seriously shows off her pretty cheekbones and gorgeous brown eyes, and honestly, no one knows how to add diva flair to a look quite like Bey.
What do you think of Beyonce’s new look? Would you or have you ever rocked a cropped cut like this?
We’re total suckers for bold looks, which is why we’re obsessed with this ultra long-lasting red stila lipstick.
You could say Melanie Allen knows a thing or two about good hair. As the Marketing Manager and Content Editor of My Best Friend’s Hair—which helps readers find awesome stylists, salons and products—Melanie is particularly knowledgeable about all things ‘do. That’s why this week she’s giving us the scoop on salon etiquette, growing out your bangs, and more.
With friends, work, relationships, and everything else that life throws at us, a trip to the salon may rank pretty low on the priority list. But if you haven’t had a trim in months, consider blocking a couple hours out of your schedule for a haircut. Here’s a quick way to see if you should rush to your stylist’s chair.

Taking examples from my friends and family, I decided do this drastic cut and donate my hair. I went to my favorite salon, Bumble and bumble, braided my hair and watched as the stylist chopped off fifteen inches of hair!

A few months ago, I chopped off my signature long locks in favor of an edgy cut that fell above my chin. My stylist convinced me it would flatter my round face, but as soon as I got home my mistake was clear: I looked like Spock from Star Trek. Needless to say, I’ve been praying for my hair to grow faster ever since. If you’re in the same boat, here’s what you can do:
If you’re growing out bangs…
Sure, you could try to sweep those awkward post-bangs into a gravity-defying pompadour. But who has the time? A headband is the way to go. These oft-neglected hair accessories are a stylish way to keep your hair out of your face. We like ban.do's whimsical versions (keep checking the Birchbox Shop for a fun promo later this month!).
