FKA Twigs holds a special place in our hearts for her unabashedly glorious celebration of all things quirky and avant garde. The singer (and unofficial queen of modern baby hair) is known for rocking looks and braids that borderline artistic masterpieces.
Now, she’s celebrating all that epicness in a new Instagram magazine dubbed AVANTgarden. The first issue, subtitled “ROOTS. SHOCK. BEAUTY.”, features a chopped-up scrolling slideshow of braided looks, du-rags and “hair style posters for the natural, the bold, and the beautiful.”
FKA Twigs teamed with a host of collaborators to create the project, which she said is “a way for me to express myself without any rules or guidelines, with imagination and care.”
