Beyoncé Ditched Her Signature Blonde Hair, And It’s The Darkest We’ve Seen In Years


While most people are lightening their hair in preparation for summer, Beyoncé chose to go in another direction. To everyone’s surprise, the pop star has ditched her signature blonde strands, dying her hair the darkest shade we’ve seen it in years.

Over the weekend, Bey stepped out with husband and rap mogul Jay Z, sporting a deep brunette hue with subtle blonde highlights framing her face. In true Queen Bey fashion, her hair was styled in big, bouncy waves.

Though she’s certainly changed up her look over the years, experimenting with different styles (remember when she rocked a bob or briefly wore her hair in a pixie?) and multiple shades of blonde, Bey has stayed in the realm of honey-blonde for awhile now. The darker do’ is a nice change and is certainly flattering on the 37-year-old mom of three. (Does anyone else think she’s resembling her mother Tina with this new look?)

It’s not clear exactly what prompted Bey’s hair transformation, but her longtime colorist, Rita Hazan, previously told Refinery29 that “everything is last minute” with the singer.

“We change it up frequently. She’ll be lighter before I see her and then the next three weeks we’ll change it again. It depends on what she’s doing and what she’s wearing,” Hazan said. “Whatever look she’s going for, she goes to execute it fully — casual or formal.”

Bey’s slowly been going darker with her hair over the past few months, sharing the transformation on Instagram. Recently, she blessed us with a rare occurrence: A video of herself getting her hair styled. She captioned the video: “Oohweebeebeefreakydeakythinkmeseeshepinkbikinirockthatkufidyethatshikinefertitiedgeskinky?.” If you’re a true fan, you’ll know is a lyric from her song “7/11.” Maybe all this change is a hint at what’s next for the megastar. New music? We can only hope.
