This early exposure to hairstyling undoubtedly sparked an enduring flame, making her involvement in this exciting project a perfect fit. Tina Knowles proudly steps into the role of vice chairwoman for Cécred, armed with four decades of valuable knowledge as a hairstylist, salon owner, and savvy entrepreneur.

Beyoncé Shares Why She Cut off Her Hair After Becoming A Mom

Beyoncé: Why She Cut off Her Hair After Becoming a Mom | Fab.ng

Music legend Beyoncé, whose influence extends far beyond the stage with initiatives like BeyGOOD and fashion line IVY PARK, is venturing into the world of hair care. Her brand new line, Cécred (a clever combination of her name), launched on February 20th. This exciting addition to her empire comes with a rare interview in Essence Magazine, where the “Renaissance” star shares a glimpse into her personal journey with hair, particularly after motherhood.

In a recent interview, Queen Bey shed light on the powerful emotions behind her dramatic hair transformation in 2013. The iconic singer, known for her cascading tresses, surprised fans by chopping off her hair into a daring pixie cut. This wasn’t just a style change—it was a symbolic shedding of expectations and societal pressures.

According to Beyoncé,

“I remember the day I decided to just cut all my hair off, I didn’t have a particular style in mind. It wasn’t an aesthetic choice, but it was a very big emotional transformation and metamorphosis that I was going through. So much of my identity as a performer has been connected to flowing hair. Cutting my hair off was me rebelling against being this woman that society thinks I’m supposed to be.”

Newly a mother, the singer remembered feeling a powerful urge to break free from societal expectations. She felt motherhood had granted her the freedom to shed those burdens. Beyoncé recalled her friend and hairstylist, Neal Farinah, feeling surprised at her decision, especially since she had long, thick, and healthy hair.

” It was a physical representation of me shedding the expectations put upon me,” she said.

“I just got the scissors and chopped it off. It was very intentional. And it was what I needed to do.”

For Beyoncé, this bold step sparked a newfound bravery and led her to make many other daring decisions in her life and career. This decision has shaped her into the person she is today.

The celebrity revealed glimpses of her childhood spent observing her mother, Tina Knowles, weave magic with hair in her salon. This experience, she shared, instilled in her a deep appreciation for haircare, a tradition proudly carried forward within their family.

“I saw her shampooing and trimming hair, transforming women, leaving them feeling really good,” Beyoncé recalled.
