Alicia Keys debuts new, much shorter haircut on Twitter: cute or meh?

Alicia Keys

We really do live in the Twitter age where celebrities and civilians alike feel free to share both exciting and mundane details about their lives with the world. Now Alicia Keys has decided to post some personal photos of her new, cropped hairdo on the social networking site. She seems entirely enthused about this latest look, and even her husband Swiss Beatz is joining in with the praise. Perhaps I’m a bit jaded, but it seems like he’s just trying to stay out of the doghouse after stepping out on his marriage with such frequency. Here’s some of what the two of them tweeted:

She came on the scene with cornrow braids and has been known to experiment with head-turning hairstyles. So it’s no surprise Alicia Keys surprised fans today with photos of her latest look.

The singer debuted a drastic new cut on Thursday, showcasing her shorter locks worn straight and curly, telling fans on Twitter: “Look what I done did!!;-)))”

Modelling her cropped cut, the singer showed how with a deep part her ringlets fell across her face in an Eighties-inspired style. A more sleek look shows Alicia with a straightened mane, next to inches of hair that had just been lopped off.

Other profile shots show just how much hair the singer had cut off – her gelled ends curling up just slightly. A full-length snap shows the Grammy-winner in a tangerine blouse and patterned shorts, throwing out a hip as she confidently shows off her bob.

The cut follows the release of Alicia’s latest single, “New Day,” prompting her to finish captioning the pictures: “its an ‪#aknewday‬ in EVERY way!!!! ;-) )))”

Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz shared his approval of the new look on the micro-blogging website, writing: ‘My baby done cut it all off :) New Day 4 real amazing !!!!”

Generally speaking, a drastically shorter haircut can feel quite liberating, right? I really wish I could go there as well, but I’m stuck with the dilemma of needing to have hair long enough to put in a ponytail for the gym. Otherwise, I’d just look like a wet puppy because I sweat a lot when I work out. Like, what’s the point of being at the gym if you don’t sweat? Anyway and enough about me — Alicia looks pretty cute with her new cut. Too bad it won’t change the fact that her husband is a douche and a half.

    What local news station is she an anchor for?

    I like her hair, although I think she’s pretty amd can wear any hairstyle..

    And I understand the ponytail at the gym, if mine’s not in one (I even have to bobby pin the front to prevent ridiculous flyaways) it get’s so frizzy that it stands on end..

  3. Krock says:

    I like her better with long hair. The short is cute when its straight but doing that curly one sided thing not really appealing to me.

  4. serena says:

    Don’t like it. It give her the look of a middle age woman (straight), and Rihanna-esque when curly.

  5. Samanthalous says:

    Its cute on her those shorts on the other hand…

  6. Holl says:

    oh no not a mom bob! Come on Alicia, you have a good decade left before resorting to such styles.

  7. paola says:

    Oh no! She is a twitter fanatic too!

  8. Turtle Dove says:

    Amazing. This is how a new, shorter cut should look (cough Shakira cough)

  9. Samigirl says:

    The short hair looks great, but I wonder if she’s going to go through that, “OH MY GOSH I CAN’T BELIEVE I CUT OFF ALL MY HAIR” phase. I’m currently going through that…and it sucks :-/

  10. UniqJaz says:

    I love the haircut. She looks really pretty and I think she has amazingg legsss !

  11. Amy says:

    Straight and curly — I think it’s super cute!

  12. Kosmos says:

    Longer hair looks better on her, but she’s probably tired of it and wants to try something new…her legs are a bit too heavy for hot pants. Too bad she is married to a big cheater :- ((

    Zzzz it’s a slow PR day when one posts pics of their new haircut. Since she’s been with Swiss Ball I couldn’t care less about her.

  15. Cecila says:
