Is Queen Bey entering another short hair era? If so, we support it 1,000 percent.
Throughout the years, Beyoncé has been loyal to her long, blonde-highlighted hair. Rarely do we see her with hair anywhere above her shoulders. In fact, one of the shortest looks she has recently worn fell a few inches past her collarbone in an Ivy Park ad in February 2021. But for 2022, Queen Bey is switching it up with a chin-grazing bob and full set of bangs.
She debuted the new hair for yet another Ivy Park ad to promote its sixth collection, which launches on February 9. In one photo posted on the brand's Instagram, she is seen in an all-red latex outfit with a matching cap. Her blunt bob falls right around her jawline. The hair is completely straight with the ends slightly bumped, framing her face. The fringe stops right above her eyebrows in a blunt cut. We're not sure if Edna Mode was the inspiration here, but the hair is definitely reminding us of the Incredibles character. Of course, she didn't abandon her signature blonde hair colour with this dimensional caramel look.
Short hair wasn't the only new thing Beyoncé tried. Makeup artist Sir John gave the icon a graphic eyeliner look in a jet-black hue. In addition to her classic cat-eye, he added another winged-out line just above her crease. He connected the two wings with a curved, convex line to complete the eye makeup.
Beyoncé with a blunt bob and bangs was definitely not on our 2022 beauty bingo card, but we're loving every inch of it. The haircut is a welcome change to her usual long hair. We have a good feeling that this bob was probably a one-time look for the Ivy Park ad, but hopefully, the Queen blesses us with another short cut one of these days.
