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."

Some of Toni's fans assumed she'd removed her hair weave. But Toni said her hair was cut.

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]."

  • Kanyade

    She probably just swiped up on the brightness and blur meter.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    She looks good without the clown makeup and the wigs! As for the bleaching ???? Could be the lighting in the room

  • Tee Tee

    It's the filter she's using. If you've watched Braxton Family Values you'll notice the difference in her skin tone/complexion. She's beautiful with or without makeup I just wish she believed that?

  • WhoKnew

    She definitely looks like she's bleaching but avoided bleaching around the eyes because that area is darker.

    To bleach his own.

  • chan chan

    It’s a filter

  • Starburst

    As long as she's bleaching her hands, knuckles and buttocks so it's uniform. One thing I detest is a light face and black knuckles. That's a dead giveaway of someone bleaching.

  • KLo

    she is bleaching. i watched the Family Braxton show and her hands were way darker than her face. check out some of the FB shows.

  • Starburst

    Whoops there it is!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs
  • Starburst

    SOB! Disgusting!!

  • SaltineCrackers

    Filter

  • exlurker

    Don't know about Toni( who I think is the prettiest of her siblings) but Tamar has definitely bleached. I saw her before pics.

  • Beloved Jordan

    Harpo, who dis woman.....i wish black women would stop with this bleaching madness..they look weird...

  • Jethro

    My baby Toni wouldn't do no dumb sh*t like that.

  • Latifah_theHealer

    ????

  • Li-Wright

    Is that Toni without makeup? She looks like a 20 year old :)

  • LoveChild

    Obviously she’s been doing bleaching injections.

  • Starburst

    Huh? Jesus take the wheel. I've heard of creams, but injections. Lawd!

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    If she is/did maybe she can slide some of that there bleach to her fi-nancy, Birdy? For those hideous face and head tattoos of his.

  • LoveChild

    Yup. Somebody spilled the tea I read a long ass threat at LSA demystifying how the celebrities do it it’s serious stuff. I don’t remember the name of the products and I don’t have a link but if you went there and did a search you would find it.

    We are not blind. Many of our black celebrities have bleached some of the legends remember Miss Diana Ross used to be chocolate?

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Crazy. I used to take that train over the bridge.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Now I was NEVER the one to be brave enough to ride the train after 10pm ESPECIALLY not the JQZ etc ones.. There is hardly Anyone riding those routes!

  • Starburst

    Lol!

  • Starburst

    Yeah, Diana Ross did get lighter through the years. Bleach injections wow! Btw, what's LSA?

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    My skin does the same thing. I'm so dark in the summer and damn near transparent in the winter. I look like a zebra when I tan real good. Because of her disease, I bet she hasn't gotten sun in a long time. Probably wears her out.

  • Starburst

    She needs Vitamin D for sun deficiency.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I thought they broke up?

  • Wish I was on another planet

    Hmm... thought her hair was always short. She looks gorgeous as usual.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    She might take it already. I know her illness might keep her out of the sun. I highly doubt she is able to put chemicals on her skin with her disease.

  • Chocolate

    She doesn’t look like she has bleached her skin to me.
    Black people tan and get lighter.
    I’ve used bronzer before myself for vacations so I’m sure the stars do too for the glow

  • LoveChild

    Yes bleach injections & serious creams soaps scrubs and lotions. I thought you guys knew about this already. Lipstick alley. Them and Sandra Rose are the premier gossip spots for black women.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Dem a bleach, dem a bleach out dem skin!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Wat?

  • Carrington

    Toni is fine as hell with short hair... I prefer her without the wigs ALL the Braxton family’s taste in wigery leaves a lot to be desired. They ALL look like they got them somewhere where you can also buy a prepaid iFoam and get a bag of skins.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Some medicines warn you to stay out of the sun.

  • Alextra Ballard

    ???? at black knuckles.. I am dine

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Yes! Now Tamar has clearly bleached. When black women who are light stay out of the sun, they get yellow brown. But when they bleach, they get awkward white like Tamar. It's like a ghost film on their skin.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Exactly.

  • Psychic Lulu

    It's a filter, pooh

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    As grown as she is with kids, I'm more concerned with why she is taking a video of her fake morning wake up. Girl grow up.

  • Psychic Lulu

    ?

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Yeah. They (JZ) usually empty out after rush hour except on the weekends when they are bringing back the hipsters

  • Alextra Ballard

    She looks lighter than previously....Toni,Halle,Nia long,Kelly Rowland,Malinda Williams can definitely rock the pixie dew.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Cdfu????...hursh!!???

  • Starburst

    Some medications dilute Vitamin D. Also, anemics skin turn pale as well. Maybe, her medications contributed to her lighter skin.

  • Starburst

    Lol!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Okay then you translate that shitt please and thank you. Lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    Um sittin byke waiting for somebidy tew say it’s becuz of her Lupus

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Dem a bleach to look like a brownin!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    No translation needed. It's lyrics from a song. If I don't know something, I typically go to google to see if it pops up.

  • Starburst

    No I didn't know above it. It's news to me. Aha Lipstick Alley.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She'd be a dayum fool to be doing anything UN-NATURAL to herself with the complications she have with "lupus"

  • MrsSpice1

    After gettin engaged to birdman the obvious struggle is real to stay young and relevant. ?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    The way them sisters switch from bald to cousin It I wouldn't be surprise if that short hair is a wig

  • MrsSpice1

    Lol. Filters are so deceitful ?...u can go from this? to ?.

  • Starburst

    Lol! Cousin It!

  • Truth ???

    I doubt shes bleaching her skin. Her complexion could be going back to its natrual tone due to being indoors more, her diet or due to medication.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Toni looks great! I’m sure part of the look is from the filter used! She also looks like she’s MAY have had a serious chemical peel, facial resurfacing! I don’t think she would be bleaching with lupus, she stays away or protects from the sun

  • Renee26

    Why can't it just be a filter dang... She's not dark anyway ?

  • just saying

    Chemical peels will lighten u up

  • dontgetblocked

    I saw this on IG nd it raised my eyebrows. I suspect it's a filter and the sunlight but she must have liked the effect.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Um still wondering why they haven’t tied the knot

  • Slim Goodie

    I'm sorry but this woman is GORGEOUS!

  • Li-Wright

    She should lay off the makeup.

  • https://disqus.com/home/discussion/freakkboxshawty/freakkbox_on_strikingly B A B Y ?

    are you mixed or sumn

  • Evillene

    It might be a yt-girl filter but lots of Hollywood blactresses bleach. There is no stigma and it is not about being 'light' -- or less black -- they just want a cafe au lait glow. Like Toni...

  • Evillene

    ...because chemical peels contain bleaching agents.

  • Evillene

    I've never heard of injections, it is mostly topical creams. Michael Jackson bleached himself white just using topical treatments and creams.

  • yvette46

    Number one Toni hair always been short she is damn near bald So, because you slap a wig on that gives you long hair. Real hair comes from your scalp not from a horse or any other sources.
