While Memorial Day weekend always marks the unofficial start of summer, we got another reminder that warmer days are ahead when Beyoncé debuted a lovely head full of blonde box braids this past week. Nothing says summertime like a fresh set of braids ready for some fun in the sun!
Whether rocking box braids a la "Poetic Justice," cornrows, mirco braids or Marley twists, the plaits are more than just pretty -- their practical too. You can sweat, swim or do whatever your heart desires without worrying about your freshly pressed hair, curl pattern or weave being compromised. #Winning
With that said, here's some beautiful braid inspiration via Instagram that will definitely get you excited for Summertime!
