Beyonce’s haircut prompted a flurry of activity on social media after the singer posted a photo of her short hair on Instagram.

“Nearly got out my scissors this morning after seeing @Beyonce ‘s pixie cut. I only just managed to restrain myself. Close call though,” wrote “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson on Twitter.

Some people–and celebrities–weren’t so impressed.

“BEYONCE NO,” wrote Rebecca Black.

But some hair and makeup experts say that she is setting a trend.

“I assure you Beyoncé’s new haircut will be the hottest haircut to hit America since Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Rachel’ hairdo,’’ Damone Roberts, a Los Angeles-based makeup expert, told the Daily Beast.

A hair stylist–who was not named and who did Beyonce’s hair and other stars–told the website: “I’m kinda of shocked she cut it I must say. Her hair has been so much of who she is over the years. That lion’s mane made her the baddest chick on the block.”
