While leaving her longtime hair stylist in the dark, Bey employed the services of Neal Farinah for the uber short cut and Rita Hazan for the light blonde color.
Did they tremble in Queen Bey's presence??? We're amazed they were able to hold it together long enough to actually pull the whole endeavor off!
"Her hair was long and went down her back. She'd been thinking about it for a while and she wanted to go for it and cut it. It was a moment that she had."
Describing the process, Rita said:
"[It's] old Hollywood meets modern day. I started with her natural hair color. I left her base color the same and took thin pieces and highlighted them to this Champagne blond hair. It's soft but strong at the same time."
And Rita insisted that Bey getting her hair stuck in a fan during her concert had nothing to do with the decision, saying:
"No, no, not at all. I don't think she even stopped singing. It's insane."
Almost as insane as the superstar's new haircut! We still can't believe she actually did it!
And though her Instagram photos are nice and all, we'd like to see her debut her new cut onstage ASAP!
