    ….Why is her hair cut international news this week? It’s a hair cut! Thumbs up and keep it moving. But its cute and its nice to see her look like a normal natural black woman.

    Her hair was real thin and damaged so this cut is a healthy move for her…….. Peep the pic.

      Brie what do you mean like a normal black woman ? What do normal black woman look like ? short hair? are you forgetting she is also half white ?

      I am black and my hair is close to my waist so maybe I also dont match your stereotype .

            that’s her grandmother, on her mother’s side? was her father black? as well as her mother, right? makes her an american of african descent, w/ some european and native american thrown in the mix….

        Normal black woman. I have heard it all now Bre. Black women and men differ so much when it come to skin color & hair textures. There is no way to group a black person in such class. If thats what you call it.

        Hr I dont think she is half white.

        No you took it wrong. I too have long hair myself. I mean she looks like a normal black women meaning “natural” not artificial with the over dramatic weaves.… Just natural beauty,normal hair, no enhancements.

        Her mom is NOT white. How did you even come to that conclusion. Beyonce has distant european/native heritage on her mother’s side in ADDITION to black on BOTH of her parents’sides.Have you seen pictures of her cousins on her mom’s side? They are clearly black.

      That picture is from years ago, so you don’t know how much healthier her hair has gotten. I don’t think there is “normal” black woman image. she still looks like the same person but with shorter hair.

      Pictures can lie: I saw the pics of her from behind when this photo was taken, and her hair was gathered up, she just left some loose at the front. Therefore it looks thinner than it is, but I guess mediatakeout just wanted a story, so…..

      Anyway, I like the cut but hate blonde hair on black women. In my opinion it would look better in dark brown.

    I am confused on the natural black women deal to. Black women have all different types of hair. And I also must add she is not half white. One of her parents is biracial. And science stated anything mixed with black is considered black. So they consider her mother black therefore beyonce is black not biracial.

    But I don’t think I like the cut on her. It may take some getting use to. To me it gives her a man look. But she is a pretty girl. I maybe just be use to the long hair look on her.

        The one-drop rule is a historical colloquial term in the United States for the social classification as Negro of individuals with any African ancestry; meaning any person with “one drop of Negro blood” was considered black. The principle of “invisible blackness” was an example of hypodescent, the automatic assignment of children of a mixed union between different socioeconomic or ethnic groups to the group with the lower status.[1] The one-drop rule was not adopted as law until the 20th century: first in Tennessee in 1910 and in Virginia under the Racial Integrity Act of 1924 (following the passage of similar laws in several other states).

        (Learn your facts before you speak. Google the meaning of the one drop rule. Then at the time you will have heard it all the correct facts. Lmas you dummy)

          “When the Supreme Courts struck down Virginia’s law prohibiting inter-racial marriage in Loving v. Virginia (1967), it also declared Plecker’s Virginia Racial Integrity Act and the one-drop rule unconstitutional.”

          Read the entire Wikipedia story before you starting preaching to people “dummy”

          I love how so many black people have adopted this racist “rule” as truth.

            You need to go back in read the entire article and do more searching on the Internet. It’s still in effect.

            FYI I’m biracial German and black. My birth certificate states that I am black. However I do not look black. I also have a 1 year old by my husband which is white and her birth certificate also states she is black.

            Yes it is a racist rule. But it is very true. I don’t know all the details to the rule but I do know that its still used.

            I am mixed and my birth certificate states that I am black. My father is white and my mother is black. I was born in Norfolk VA 25 years ago.

            and I’m mixed race(and relatively dark..darker than Beyonce fer sure) but my birth certificate(from US) said I was White. :S I had it amended(a page added because they won’t redo it).

            Forget birth certificates and stupid labels. Please.

      socially, not scientifically. scientifically speaking there’s no such thing as “Black” or “white”, only human.

        RMFE Why is it that only black people repeat this spiel? Every other animal in the kingdom are classified by phenotype but when it comes to homo sapiens it’s “social” okay.

      Actually, the one-drop rule was a made up tool created by white slavers to designate enslaved Africans who were fathered by the owners, drivers or whoever was allowed to rape enslaved African women as property.

      This was an economical tool used to allow plantation owners to excuse themselves for claiming their own children as chattel and in some rare cases, prevent some overly sympathetic owner from freeing these children.

      There was never any science involved or any research. It was an economical plan. This is also how the terms mulatto, octoroon and quadroon were invented. Those were used to determine the “whiteness” of the child and how or where they would live out their lives.

        Its really sad when people start thinking the one drop rule is science….I almost cried….

        Race is a social construct. Nothing more nothing less. It does not exist. We live in a fucked up time.

    Nobody here thinks its a pixie cut lacefront wig? Come on now people, we all know she’s got the best lacefronts in the world.

    • http://bglh Atlantys

      Avanti, I agree. Every body on here should have sense enough to know by now, that Beyoncé’s “long hair” was only lace front wigs. Heck! On her HBO documentary she showed her real hair(appeared to be average shoulder length, straightened)and said that she wore lace front wigs. I’ve never worn a wig nor weave in my life(I have thick ,waist-length relaxed hair) and I could tell that her long, fried, over bleached dry, dull looking tresses were not hers. Plus, even with a part– you never see her scalp! This is just a short, pixie-cut wig!

        she just removed the weave. Where the problem?? Why all this dialogue?? Anyone who thought that was her hair is an idiot.

      You know what? I never thought of that…..maybe it’s just a stunt to see how the public will react to it. If most don’t like it, then just “watch” how “fast” it will grow back lol. But then again I thought she was wearing a weave to begin with?

    I think I would like it more if she kept it black or dark brown. The blonde hair with dark roots looks kind of tacky. The cut is cute though and she of course is gorgeous as usual!

    So why did she have to hide behind the wigs? She could have just worn her own hair. If her REAL hair was healthy and thick and everything her stylist says it was then WHY hide it, then cut it off? Beyonce is just full of it. Why tell lies. She could have just said she had a hair cut and just left it at that.

    Not to be funny but I’m surprised she still has any edges. Those lace fronts/wigs she wore looked to be extremely tight. I’ve seen the damage hair pieces can do over time. Ijs.

    Cut? 1. WHY is this news?? 2. She took out her weave and had her REAL hair trimmed. 3. She looks like a little boy or a cross dresser now. She’s a pretty woman but this is not flattering to her.

    Most entertainers, whether they be singers or actresses, admit to wearing weaves and wigs to protect their hair from all the heat and styling they under go doing their craft. Its not a big deal. They aren’t trying to hide anything or fool anyone. Its all a part of the act just like a costume. I don’t understand why people are making such a big deal out of it. Knowing Beyoncé I will just wait for the interview where I hear from her mouth what the deal is about her hair, not that it matters a bit. She’s a hard working entertainer and I enjoy her work. She’s beautiful, short hair, long hair, weave, wig or whatever.

    smdh. Just a couple years ago when I first discovered this site, the comments would overflow with support and positivity. Now, all I ever see is ridiculously ignorant and sometimes even racist statements stemming from a lot of hate or jealousy. The comments go off on negative tangents, people feed the trolls, the cycle perpetuates. I’m going to stop reading the comments altogether. Nothing of substance resides there anymore.

    The cut is cute, but I too would like to see a different color. Maybe a chestnut brown or black. Nice to see her switching it up and trying new things.
