Alicia Keys has gone under the knife! No, she has not had an emergency operation — she just did the “big chop” with her loose curls and is now sporting a shockingly short ‘do. The singer took to twitter to debut her drastic new hair cut, which at first glance gives off an ’80s vibe. The style is seemingly flexible as she showcased a vibrant curly bob in one photo, alongside photos of a smooth, laid back look. The post sent with her twitter pictures read:

Look what I done did!!;-))) its an #aknewday in EVERY way!!!! ;-))))

In the pics, Keys gives a more defining look at just how much hair she chopped off, a star who has never been in public with hair that is just chin length.  The premiere of her cut coincides with the release of her latest single, “New Day.”

In 2001, Keys made her professional debut in funky cornrows and “all black everything” apparel. In a collaboration on Usher’s “My Boo” single, she later brought more sex appeal to her look.  The evolution of her hair and wardrobe has progressed since then, as she ditched the braids and went with increasingly elegant design choices. Yet, her new, chin-length hair cut is the most daring style move Keys has made.

What do you think of Alicia Keys’ new hairstyle?
