Beyonce, why you gotta play me that way? To the left, to the left with you, I say! When my favorite lady-singer cut off her locks this summer, I hollered with joy. As a girl with a pixie cut myself, it's reassuring and beyond inspiring to see a hot woman of her stature lob off her mane and prove that long hair isn't the only kind of "sexy" on the planet.
Of course, I should have known it wouldn't last. To be fair, the writing was on the wall when she started wearing longer hair on stage. Remember when she got it stuck in that fan and everyone was like "BEYONCE'S SCALP IS IN PERIL"? Well, I was more like, "Good, maybe now she's been scared permanently short." Sadly, I was incorrect.
She's been playing around with a mid-length bob since the hacking of her tresses, so I guess I called that one wrong. Still, a bob isn't ass-length hair, and thus it was I remained mum. Now, Beyonce's debuted a newer, longer look and it's like a slap in the face. Or I mean, it would be if the hairstyles of celebrities dictated things like my self-esteem.
On the one hand, I kind of adore the new look. It's like she's channeling Rapunzel. On the other hand, I can't help but think it seems a little cowardly. She looked stellar with short hair! Like Emma Watson and Etta James before her! While it's a woman's prerogative to do what she will with her follicles, I have to admit, I'm sad to see her pixie cut go.
Do you think Beyonce looks better with short or long hair?
