Beyoncé is ringing in her 34th birthday with a bang -- literally.
Just hours before her big day, Mrs. Carter gifted we mere mortals with a flawless new snap of herself on her blog. The photo shows the superstar sporting a gorgeously messy blond bun with dark roots (who said those were a faux pas?) and new side-swept bangs.
And of course, her makeup is as elegant as ever with a glossy pink lip and fierce, jet-black cat eye.
Queen Bey is no stranger to the fringe -- last year, the September Vogue cover star donned what many classified as "hipster" bangs (think a blunt, baby fringe) in Paris with husband Jay Z and daughter, Blue Ivy.
Lookin' bangin', Bey! Here's to another year of domination with your new sultry bangs.
