BN Beauty: Monalisa Chinda, Genevieve Nnaji & Beyoncé Wear Super Long Braids – Will You Try the Look?



BN Beauty - Super Long Braids - July 2014 - 01
We really do take our celeb hair game serious folks.

Now let’s talk about this style a few celebs have been trying on. It is the super long braids.

BN Beauty has spotted Beyoncé, Genevieve Nnaji, Ini Edo, Ciara and most recently Monalisa Chinda all rocking the look.

Although many may argue that the style isn’t for everyone, what we love about it, is that it is bold and sassy.

      Well, nothing new. But it is refreshing, given that there is still a craze of brazilian hair and the like.

    @ Jura, you are super duper right. People rock braids every now and then, I see no reason why it should be a subject of discourse because Beyoncé and co have braids on

Inferiority complex no go kill Naija people.
