Shaunie O'Neal and Christina Milian Debut Braided Hairstyles, Plus Our Favorite Celebrity Braided Hair Moments (PHOTOS)

Braids are back, baby! Well, let's be honest--they really didn't go anywhere. But with celebs like Solange Knowles, Beyonce, and even little Zahara Jolie-Pitt rocking pretty plaits, the style has definitely made a triumphant return to the spotlight.

"Basketball Wives" executive producer Shaunie O'Neal got into the hair-braiding spirit recently when she showed off a new box braid look via a Twitpic this week. The low maintenance hairstyle is perfect for hot nights in the club or humid days in the sun.

And speaking of the sun, Christina Milian was spotted catching some rays with her adorable daughter, Violet, both sporting freshly braided 'dos while in Jamaica. Christina tweeted a pic of the two in their matching Mommy-and-me cornrows accessorized with beads. Super cute!

Here's a look at Shaunie, Christina and Violet's braided 'dos--and check out the slideshow below for some of our favorite celebrities wearing braids over the years
