Since Beyonce’s pixie cut reveal, some have wondered whether it truly was a big chop, or just a new style of wig. Now Beyonce’s hair stylist and colorist are coming forward to confirm that it was, indeed a chop, and to give their thoughts on her new look.
Beyonce’s long time stylist Kim Kimble, told People StyleWatch that it was difficult to cut the singer’s hair
I got a little teary eyed! I’ve been working for her so long, she has this beautiful long hair and it’s hard to grow hair out. I feel like it’s my hair, I work so much with her. I feel a little emotional but excited for her too. Maybe I’ll cut my hair off now. Short hair, don’t care!
She had great, thick long hair, which she cut off because she’s ready to make a statement. It’s a great [one] to make: I’m beautiful, Hot, bold and I can do it all. She’s the perfect model for that: A working woman, mom, superstar, businesswoman. She’s powerful in herself.
It had to be her decision. This was a big step, and it’s perfect timing…
Beyonce’s colorist, Rita Hazen, told US Weekly that Beyonce was tired of hiding behind her hair
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. 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.
Kudos to Beyonce for just letting the hair go. It sounds like, emotionally, she needed that release to move forward. I wonder if she was partially inspired by seeing her little sis do the big chop years earlier.
Ladies, what are your thoughts on the stylists’ statements?
