Longtime hairstylist Neal Farinah explained to Us Weekly the singer wanted a last-minute hair change on their way out of her apartment building. She originally had 'an asian-inspired chignon,' but the singer felt it was too 'costumey.'

'She looks at me and says, "Neal, I want to change my hair, will you change my hair?" And I said, "Honey, there could be cameras in the elevator." She says, "You have 5 minutes." And I said, "Girl, what do you want me to do with the hair?" And she wanted a high ponytail. With Beyoncé, she looks at herself and she says, "This isn't right, let's change it."'

So it was changed. Because, Beyoncé.
