Singer Solange Knowles has long been a natural hair icon, catching our eye with teeny weeny afros, big Diana Ross-like hair, bouncy waves and much more. (Check out Solange’s Hair Story). Lately we’ve been swooning over her super long box braids. When it comes to braids, Knowles rarely goes short. Over the years we’ve seen her rock waist-length box braids, butt-length and even knee length. She typically goes for a standard width (not too thick, not too thin) but occasionally she’ll bust out with some dookies.
In terms of how she styles them, she usually lets their length be the statement and lets them hang loose or swept to the side. Every now and then she’ll pull them up into a high pony tail or bun or accessorize them with a brightly printed cap or wrap.
