Beyoncé Rocks New Braided Hairdo

Beyonce Braids
INF; Splash News Online

Beyoncé is returning to her Destiny’s Child roots — and no, we’re not talking about those color-coordinated outfits she used to wear. She’s brought back her braids!

The superstar debuted her new extensions, wrapped up in a statement-making beehive bun, on Wednesday while in N.Y.C. with her daughter, Blue Ivy.

There were whispers that the singer was rocking long honey-hued braids at a party in the Meatpacking District earlier this week, but the new style didn’t make an official public appearance until now.

The hairdo is a major departure from the wavy, natural look she’s favored recently. It also seems as if she’s taken some inspiration from her sister Solange, who’s been sporting a similar look.

Apparently, Beyoncé’s adorable daughter is taking after her mom in the locks department: the little one already has quite a head of hair! Tell us: Do you like Beyoncé’s new hairdo?

That said, I don’t have a problem with the braids, but that updo is a bit much….

Wow, I absolutely never post comments but I am amazed at how racist people can be if you have nothing nice to say then you should say NOTHING! “Nappy Hair, Nappy Woman”??? Are you kidding me? Sad we still live in such an ignorant society. Now I will sit back and wait for the ignorant response!

Baby is cutsie-wootsie!! Beyonce on the other hand, looks as if she is balancing a ball of yarn on her head. LOL

I love ethnic hairstyles such as these. She looks gorgeous. For those that hate, it’s shameful that you can’t embrace aspects of African/American American culture. Our hair, is a crown of glory.
