I think my fave was Teyana Taylor who sported big bold bantu knots with gray extensions added. I was also digging Ayesha Curry’s and Draya Michele’s simple fishtail braids.

There were a lot of box braids. In addition to Gabrielle Union, Sanaa Lathan, Garcelle Beauvais and a bevy of Other celebs I follow sported the popular style during the dog days of summer.
