Beyoncé Put A Vintage Spin On Her Braids For The Lion King — & Fans Love It

Compared to the Lemonade braids we’ve seen on Beyoncé in the past, these didn’t sweep to one side of her head and were instead parted in a curvy, S-shaped pattern — similar to finger waves. Toward her hairline, Kimble styled single braids in swirls and pin curls to create a dramatic baby-hair effect. Then, starting at her crown, her cornrows went straight back into a ponytail that cascaded down to her waist. Many fans compared the singer’s style to Josephine Baker, the world-renowned performer, World War II spy, and activist who wore a similar, slicked-down wavy look in the 1920s.
