Beyonce is famed for her hair-shaking performances and blowing her luscious locks in wind machines, so it will come as a huge shock for most to learn that the singer has finally ditched the long flowing weaves to show off her real hair with a cute pixie cut.

After years of sporting a wide variety of wigs, weaves and extensions, it looks as though Beyonce is finally ready for a major change in the hair game but nobody would have suspected that the diva would be brave enough to rock a short crop.

With the end of the first leg of her 'Mrs. Carter Show' world tour, Beyonce certainly has a lot of extra time on her hands so decided to treat her fans to a sneak peek at her new makeover with a series of photos on Instagram.

Perhaps inspired by the look she sported for her role as Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records, Beyonce has opted for a cute blonde pixie cut, a major departure from her previous feminine locks.
