By now, you’ve heard all of the hair fuss. This week, Beyonce said good-bye to the long, flowing hair, introducing a new shorter hair cut. And with mixed reactions:

While she’s not obligated to share with the press and her fans WHY she went ‘Pixie’ on us, her hair colorist, Rita Hazan, explains the need for change. In an interview with US Weekly, she explained:

I was shocked. I think she was just feeling empowered, like a strong woman, and she said she’s been feeling it for a long time. She didn’t want to hide behind her hair in real life.

She continued:

I’m so happy because the extensions give women the wrong expectation of what their hair should look like — it’s great for onstage, but everyday women shouldn’t have or want to have five pounds of hair on their head. This hair is more natural, more realistic.

Prior to the cut, Hazan explained that her hair color:

was a honey blonde, a darker blonde. [Dyeing] it took some time to do — like four hours — because we wanted to keep her natural color at the root so it would grow out well. We made it a champagne blonde — it’s very old Hollywood, like a Marilyn Monroe blonde. This shade shows women of every color that they can wear this shade. Just make sure that it’s healthy — healthy hair will keep the color longer. My personal thought is that every woman can be blonde as long as it’s the right shade of blonde for your skin color. And Beyonce pulls it off!

And in other Bey news, some fancy photographer in a helicopter of sorts, took a few snaps of The Carters mid week drive. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy and two others took a top down drive in somewhere, USA.
