Beyonce Rocks 5 Different Braid Styles in her New ‘Formation’ Video

Look who was slaying in not one, not two but 5 different braid style in her latest video? 

Queen Bey! One of our original Braids ambassadors.

Today, Beyonce dropped the video for her first song in a year, “Formation (Dirty)”

It is a virtual ode to Blackness.  It is political. It is primal. 

It reminds me of the video for  “No Angel” in that it features all aspects of New Oreleans and southern culture. 

Not all will like it or get it but that’s okay.








Everything isn’t for everybody.
I dig it!

And now the hair:
