Fierce Hair: Box Braids

I honestly never thought that box braids would make a come back.  Back in the day it was Patra and Janet Jackson who wore long, thick braids with the big earrings and the bright lipstick.  Even I wore these braids when I was a teenager, getting them all the way down to the middle of my back (you couldn’t tell me nothing back then! LOL) Now it’s celebs like Solange and Beyonce that are bringing it back offering fresh ways to rock this classic style.  One of the things I love about this style is how versatile it is, from rocking it flipped to the side to a modern version of the top knot.  You can add color if you’re feeling adventurous too and with the proper care can last a few weeks.   The only downside is getting them in is super time consuming (I was in the chair 9 hours for mine!) but in the end, it’s all worth it!
