Beyonce Debuts Bangs Just in Time for 34th Birthday: See the Singer’s New Hairstyle

Snip, snip! For her birthday, Beyonce gave herself the perfect gift—a beautiful new hairdo!

The "Partition" singer, turning 34 on Sept. 4, posted a picture on her site,, debuting—wait for it—soft, side-swept bangs. 

Yonce’s new hair was styled up, away from her face, which highlighted her fringe. The Dream Girls star also wore a baby-pink sweater in the photo, and rocked an on-point cat-eye, too.

The new bangs are only a slight change from the look she was rocking before (long, light layered tresses), but the overall effect of the bangs is completely different. The side-swept hair lends a retro vibe while adding even more dimension and body. 

This isn’t the first time Bey has taken up the hairstyle, though. The mom to Blue Ivy, 3, wore short, ‘50s-era bangs in 2014 and an eyebrow-grazing crop (which she liked to style with a topknot) in 2012. She also wore bangs on the cover of her Deja Vu album.
