British bombshell Thandie Newton is one of our faves when it comes to Black beauty – inside and out. She is a regular advocate for celebrating our “otherness” and consistently stuns on and off the red carpet with her hair and beauty looks. So, of course, her latest mane move is giving us #BlackHairMagic.

The actress recently shared a few pics of her new summertime ‘do — Cleopatra-inspired box braids — on Instagram.

Her braids were done by longtime friend and braider, Angelic_Hair and showcase just hints of color highlights and golden braid cuffs. Just last week, she was sporting waist length braids (also style by Angelic), but we think this lob length is just long enough for a top pony and short enough to beat the heat.

Are you feeling her new ‘do? Sound off below.
