In an unexpected turn of events that the Beyhive welcomed with double taps and open arms, Beyoncé debuted new dark brown hair while out with Jay Z on Fri. night. Sitting court-side at the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors basketball game, the Sorry singer commanded attention with her subtle beauty update and a statement catsuit by Parisian brand Marine Serre. Covered in the brand's signature half moon logo, the formfitting number stole the show, accompanied by a shiny black globe handbag which read "Hardcore Couture," and '90s-esque skinny shades for good measure.
Social media was clearly here for it, as fans on Twitter promptly reacted as soon as the new look surfaced, begging Knowles to stick with the chocolate brown hue with caramel highlights. Celebrities were also keen on the natural update, with Ashley Graham and Winnie Harlow commenting "Love the dark hair!!!" and "Okay brunette 🔥🔥🔥🔥" on Instagram, respectively.
It's been a good minute since Beyoncé went brunette, with the 2014 Met Gala serving as the last time the Grammy Award-winning artist ditched her signature honey blonde locks. Despite springtime generally signaling people to go lighter (men in 2019 are clearly up for a platinum moment), this alternative switch-up proves the power of luscious brunette hues for spring.
Beyoncé isn't the only natural brunette to revert back to her roots this month. Reese Witherspoon was spotted filming Apple's The Morning Show in New York City last week, rocking a tousled lob that was several shades darker than her signature light blonde. Though Witherspoon's new look was likely for the role at hand, it made a case for crossing over to the dark side during warmer months.
Even though Beyoncé has a way of making the most daring fashion and beauty looks appear easy, this lustrous hair moment is surely one of her more approachable beauty vibes.
