Beyonce's New Haircut: What the Hairdressers Think...

Beyonce Knowles surprised fans this week by posting a picture of herself with a short cropped hairstyle which is a far cry from her trademark lengthy locks...

Beyonce's New Haircut- What the Hairdressers Think... 
While some are speculating that this is as a direct result of her hair getting stuck in a fan at a concert in Montreal last month, I caught up with some industry experts to find out their expert opinions on this shocking change in style.

Former London Hairdresser of the Year Karine Jackson is of the opinion that Beyonce changed her hair due to damage resulting from year of extensions. She said:

"This really suits Beyonce, but looks as though it's been born from extensions coming out and the hair possibly being damaged underneath, so needing a bit of a cut. I wouldn't be surprised if we see her with long hair again. It's a nice shape and suits her bone structure - I always think short hair really accents someone's star quality and Beyonce just looks show stopping as always. I'd style it differently though, with a bit more product to make it more polished and give it more texture as the cut itself is a bit mundane and boyish which is what makes me think it's an in between stage rather than a definite style she'll stick with. Roots show up more dramatically on short crops and while they look cool around the front of the head, the regrowth at the back is a bit of a dramatic line - it's worth keeping in mind on a shortie that all over colour looks amazing but there's some very regular upkeep needed."

British Colourist of the Year Ken Picton is a big fan of the look, but gave some words of warning for those wanting to copy the style. He said:

"Going from very long to very short is such a dramatic change and Beyonce shows how fantastic it can look - this is a celeb staple now as seen on Charlize Theron, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Williams among others and an amazing way to reinvent your image. Short hair suits cute, petite features so is one to avoid if your nose, jawline or ears are anything other than uniform. Round faces who want a short cut should include lots of angles and a pointy fringe shaping into points over the ears to give the face definition; on square faces short hair looks best in a rounded cut with a sweeping fringe so don't go this short; lucky old oval faces suit most hairstyles, so it's more important to look at your features."

Last but not least, Michelle White, Creative Director at Frontcover Cosmetics had something to say about Beyonce's make up in her instagram shots and has some top tips for us...

"Beyonce's supergroomed eyebrows and nude but polished make-up really finish her look, her defined eyelashes, brows and pretty lips recall Audrey Hepburn's look. The cool eyes, hot lips look has been huge this year, from the red carpet at the Oscars to fashion weeks around the world. Blend a subtle hue across the eyes, a brighter shade in the inner corners, and define with a smidgen of kohl eyeliner and black mascara. Add lashing of lipstick or gloss, and the faintest sweep of blusher on the apples of the cheeks."

What do you think of Beyonce's look? Will you be heading down to the hairdresser to mimic her style?
