While Beyoncé is known for her long flowing locks, she recently decided to debut a new look for the summer. Whether influenced by her natural hair icon sibling, or just looking to sport a shake-n-go do’, Beyoncé was spotted this week wearing blonde box braids. The King and her famous husband attended rapper Nas’ dinner in New York Monday celebrating the release of his new album, Life Is Good. And while there, Bey attempted to keep a low profile and refused to pose for pictures so her husband and his ex arch-nemesis could share the spotlight. Unfortunately for her, however, a few sneaky fans managed to snap a few photos showing her new hairstyle, photos that have become the topic of discussion today.
Bey’s new hairdo was the talk of Twitter Tuesday with several fans expressing disappointment in her new style. “Somebody said Beyoncé went to Nas’ party with braids in her hair, this cannot be,” wrote one member of her “Beyhive” as her fans are known. “Beyoncé better cut it out with these braids, leave that to Solange, boo,” wrote another.
Others are seemingly pleased with the new look. “I like the fact that Beyoncé is rocking box braids. It brings me back to her Destiny’s Child days,” one fan added.
