The short, pixie style Beyonce haircut debuted by this singer yesterday didn't just take fans by surprise.
It also took the singer's long-time colorist, Rita Hazan, aback.
"I was shocked," Hazan tells Us Weekly. "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."
Hazan adds that the change makes her "happy" because Beyonce's extensions may have been sending women the wrong message.
