Fresh and Twisted: 3 Looks You Might Have Missed Solange

Look familiar? Solange's newest style post-afro is slightly reminiscent of the '90s Janet Jackson "Poetic Justice" braids that other starlets like Christina Milian and Beyonce have worn in the past year, as well. The lengthy ones Solange rocked recently on the festival circuit are nearly knee-length and great for ladies looking for a no-fuss summer style that also helps promote hair growth, but not without its headaches, according to one of Solange's recent tweets: "Hate the first week and a half, of having braids."

Uma Thurman

With the exception of a few unfortunate flyaways, we can't get over this flirty, messy, twisted look Uma Thurman wore for Paris Fashion Week. Continuing the trend of the black ribbon, Uma frames this halo braid alternative elegantly with the popular classic hair accessory.

A maximum hold hairspray is essential for a look like Uma's. Try this one from Pureology, with added shine and fortifiers.

So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
