Beyonce has chopped her hair into a short bob.

The 31-year-old singer - who is on a break between legs of her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour - posted a snap on Instagram this morning (08.08.13) showing off her new look, ditching her statement long locks for an edgy super-short hair do.

The new style comes just two weeks after the pop megastar caused panic at her concert in Montreal, Canada, when her blonde stresses got entangled in the blades of a fan as she belted out the lyrics to her anthem 'Halo'.

Beyonce had been sat next to the fan - which was perched on the edge of the stage - for her finale performance when it became apparent her tightly curled hair had been sucked into the machine.

The blonde beauty wasn't perturbed by the worrying mishap, and held onto the roots of her hair to prevent it getting caught further, before security rushed over to tease out her tangled hair.

The singer - who is married to rapper Jay Z - managed to see the funny side of the incident as later posted a handwritten note on Instagram for fans describing what happened.

She also reworked the lyrics to 'Halo' to include the incident, writing: ''Gravity can't begin to pull me out of the fan again.''
