Beyonce reveals new pixie cut on Instagram

The superstar known for whipping her luscious locks on stage has made a bold move — a sweet new pixie crop.

Beyonce, 31, who just finished the American leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour with a showstopper at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, revealed the short cut on Instagram, where she posted three pictures late Wednesday night.

On July 22, the singer found herself in a hair-raising situation, catching her tresses in a fan on stage in Montreal as she belted out her hit "Halo." 

True to form, she never stopped singing as security guards worked to free her — and joked about it by posting a rewritten version of the song on Instagram
