Box braids may have made a major comeback a few summers ago with starlet Solange rocking chunky, waist-length versions of this protective style, but it was Kendrick Lamar’s hit song “Poetic Justice,” that made us remember Janet Jackson’s braided hairstyle that never really left.
Most recently, this fly style landed in the digital pages of WeTheUrban.com’s Nostalgia Issue thanks to actress, Tia Mowry. The cool and carefree style by Kendra Garvey has become her go-to ‘do while protecting her natural curls. Inside, the Hollywood starlet pens a heartfelt letter to her 16-year-old self telling her not to get caught up in the superficial side of life and to be confident in the young lady she is.
In addition to the empowering words of wisdom Mowry imparts, the former “Game” star serves absolute Poetic Justice realness with a head full of jet black box braids and we’re totally here for it.
