Beyonce’s long time stylist Kim Kimble became teary eyed when she saw Beyonce’s new do on Instagram. Kimble told People Style Watch – it was emotional.
“I got a little teary eyed!” she confesses. “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!”
And despite many commenters speculating Beyoncé just removed her weave or extensions, Kimble says, “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, sexy, 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. “
Beyonce’s colorist Rita Hazan told US Weekly –
“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,” Hazan says of the star’s stunning cropped coif. “She didn’t want to hide behind her hair in real life.”In fact, Beyonce’s long extensions have become a big part of her onstage persona. But Hazan, for one, loves the new look. “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,” she tells Us. “This hair is more natural, more realistic.”
