Perhaps no one was more surprised to see Beyoncé's new pixie cut than her longtime stylist, Kim Kimble.
"I did not expect it, but I think it is a great shock," the L.A. Hair star told E! News. Kimble, who has styled Queen Bey's strands for years, praised the singer for showing "a lot of confidence." "It's powerful that you won't let one thing define you," Kimble said.
The singer's new style also serves as a testament to more women embracing their natural hair texture, Kimble added. "She looks amazing. I think it makes a statement about people going natural. She is a beautiful girl and can do it."
Beyoncé unveiled her new look on Instagram on Wednesday night to much fanfare. And while it may take some time for fans to get fully accustomed to the drastic change, the master stylist is already thinking about what's next. When asked how she plans to style Bey's hair for her upcoming video shoot this weekend, Kimble hinted that more surprises are in the works.
"I had a plan but now I am going to have to rethink it," she said. "Maybe think of the style I was going to do and give it a shorter twist. I am ready to roll with it!"
