Beyoncé back in braids

Friday, 20 July 2012

She’s had her hair up, down and any which way around. But when we spotted this pic of the bootylicious Beyoncé on the street rocking braids again, we did a double take.

The new mother was spotted with little Blue Ivy on the streets of New York, and seems to be taking some style advice from her sister Solange. With her braided style making a comeback, will Destiny’s Child drop one last record (again)?

No doubt Mrs Jay-Z is taking good care of those braids, but if you’re looking for something a little less KAPOW, why not try a fishtail braid this weekend. Or a pretty plait.

    B’s braids look beautiful, Solange is also rocking the braids look lately but unfortunately having braids as long as theirs requires a stylist for the styling.

    Braids are easier to maintain especially when you have a child around!

    Nah don’t like it, it’s not her, can bet you she did it because she was a bit bored with her hairstyle, but like they say a change is as good as a holiday, but it won’t last long it’s not her.

    I’m all for sista’s looking after themselves and no doubt Beyonce is a beautiful woman, but i would like to see her all natural. Less the braids, less the fake eyelashes etc.

    Beyonce is an African American, and braids may look heavy but actually they are not. Her pretty plait make me believe her ancestors are from South Africa in the Cape. This woman is GORGEOUS period!!

    I think braids are one of the hairdo that will never go out of fashion. And mhmm….I’m green with envy, Y? Anything on Beyonce is good even hubby Jay-Z is starting to look better!!! LOL

    MMmmm, i think the baby is the reason for the more practical and less fuss hairdo. She looks good nevertheless.

    she still looks good, but her braids looks big and heavy, and with that outfit she looks like a sister from Africa

    She looks like a yellow-boned african. For a long time she was mimicking whites. I love it and it suits her

    Seems like a no-brainer, low maintenance solution for a new mom. I do prefer the 2001 look to the current one though.
