When you think of singer-songwriter Gabriella Wilson, known by her stage name H.E.R., you might think of her melodic voice, her amazing sunglasses collection, or the well over 20 inches of hair she tends to wear. Her hair is typically styled in long wavy styles or straight sleek looks, but now the star is ditching those hairstyles for a set of waist-length box braids.
The Calfornia-based star debuted the fresh set of box braids with an Instagram carousel on July 29. The braids are so long that you can’t see them in their full glory in the first photo. But thankfully she shared a few different angles of the look, so in the third photo, you can see the black braids fall towards her knees. Each braid is large in size but tapers off at the end, making it perfect for when she wants to pile them on her head in a bun or ponytail.
This braided hairstyle looks absolutely stunning on her. Her braider really snapped, especially with the perfectly sized parts for each braid. She’s definitely a queen of baby hairs, and for this style, her edges were simply swooped and slicked, which you can see in pictures two, three, and four.
This definitely isn’t Wilson’s first time with box braids. Back in February, she was caught with a similar braided style but in a larger size. We love seeing the star play around in a new style. Maybe for her next protective style, she’ll consider butterfly locs or a twisted style instead.
