Sooo in the decade that I've been missing I've been kind of obsessed with box braids. Zoe Kravitz is my current inspiration for beauty and fashion because obviously. She's a freak! She's so teeny and adorable and powerful and gorgeous all at the same time. She does what she wants, how she wants and is proud of who she's becoming as a woman and I love that.
Tell me she isn't amazeballs? Aside from her being terribly beautiful, I am beyond obsessed with her hair. I loooove her ability to rock these braids at all types of events with an array of looks. Shows the versatility of such a great simple protective style for your hair.
Now onto some other box braids. The photo below is exactly what I want mine to look like... DYINNNNNGGGGGGG over them right??? I know... I know... It looks clean and messy at the same time. Can be kind of grungy... Ugh they're going to be insane. I love it.
Let's talk about Sephelia really quickly... I stumbled across her instagram one day while looking at pics of box braids and I'm obsessed (@whatsnextseph)! THESE BRAIDS!!! Ugh I need them. I've been trying to grow my hair out for ages. It's been over a year since I've done any bleaching and any Brazilian Blowouts, so I'm proud of myself, but I'm definitely itching to do something different. I don't want to destroy my hair anymore since I'm trying to get my curls back to the way they used to be so protective styles are 100% what I wanna do. Box braids were brought to my attention by my boyfriend and then once I started really looking into it... yeah, I'm obsessed.
Well, this post isn't really about anything at all so thanks for letting me rant. Obviously when I get my braids done I'll post pictures and I'll document how I'm taking care of them as well as the growth that I have with my natural hair.
I hope you all are doing well!!! What's been inspiring you lately?? I'd love to know. :)
