Like many women, Beyonce likes to mix up her style once in a while. But it's still shocking to see her sporting a blonde pixie cut.

The singer showed off her new look on Instagram, posting three images of her newly shorn 'do on Wednesday. She is pictured stroking her short, blonde locks while gazing into a mirror.

Perhaps she changed her hair for safety reasons? Last month her locks got stuck in an industrial fan while she was performing in Montreal, Canada. Queen B recently finished the North American leg of her "Mrs. Carter" world tour.

Beyonce isn't the only star who's opted to go short. Miley Cyrus famously chopped off her hair in 2012 (and subsequently topped Maxim's Hot 100 list). 

The hairstyle is very popular these days.

Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron cut their long locks because of film roles, and celebs like P!nk, Ginnifer Goodwin, Michelle Williams and Halle Berry have held on to their 'dos for several years.
