Toni Braxton surprised her fans by debuting her new short hairdo in a video posted on her Instagram account.

The songstress debuted her new haircut on Sunday. She captioned the image: "Fresh new cut.. HAPPY SUNday."

Toni, who turns 52 next month, favors wearing long hair weave or extensions when she's on the road performing. The "Un-Break My Heart" singer is best known for her short haircuts.

Toni's fans were ecstatic. "She looks so beautiful without makeup," one IG user wrote.

One Instagram user questioned whether Toni is bleaching her skin. "Why bleach?" the user asked.

Another IG user wrote "Either thats a ckone [sic] or she kightened her skin [sic]."
