Season 9 of the Real Houswives of Atlanta gave us some unprecedented breaks of the girl code but it also showcased some braided realness. In my recent memory of broadcast, cable and streaming television programming, I’ve never seen any show highlight as many braided styles as this show.
I first noticed former top model and current agency owner Cynthia Bailey rocking fierce pigtails. Also, her daughter Noelle Robinson with actor Leon Robinson was sporting some pretty cute banana braids in early episodes. Noelle, who is the spokes models for her mom’s accessories line Cargo, wears braids often on her Instagram.
During the group’s glamping trip this season, friend of the Housewives Marlo Hampton, Kandi Burruss and her assistant/friend wore pigtails, Goddess briads and cornrows. On another destination taping in Hawaii, Kandi sported individual box braids.
Also, Sheree Whitfield and Porsha Williams can be seen in box braids this season as well.
Bravo to the Bravo hit show!
