    Beyoncé unveiled a brand new super-short pixie crop hairstyle on Instagram last night.

    The superstar, who concluded her Mrs Carter World Tour with a final, incredible performance at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, decided to chop her famous mop of curls off as she embarks on a short break from performing.

    The singer posted a series of beautiful snaps to the picture-sharing site last night, unveiling her super-short crop – and it looks STUNNING. We can’t help but think Mrs Carter will feel relieved to have such a low-maintenance hairstyle with a young daughter and a busy schedule, though we’re unsure if she’ll keep it for her huge gig at the Virgin Media V Festival next weekend.

    Beyoncé shared the the pictures of her new shorter do’ just moments after the big chop, showing off the gorgeous bleached blonde cut in front of the mirror. Admiring her new reflection, the star pouts away while stroking her very short tresses. Doesn’t she look beautiful? If anyone can pull off a radical hair makeover, it’s Queen B.

    The star will take to the Virgin Media V Festival stage next weekend in Chelmsford, and this lady’s known for her head-banging and hair-throwing performances, so we’re intrigued to see whether she opts to wear a wig for her headline set. Or perhaps she was wearing a wig all along? Who knows. One thing’s certain, though – we’ve never wanted to cut our hair so much.

    See you at the salon, ladies.
