The African beaded braids hairstyle is giving us a huge comeback as it is fast becoming a trendy style thanks to singer/songwriter Solange Knowles and Alicia Keys.

Using beads to accessorize our hair has become an avenue for black women to embrace our African roots and it is fast become a fashion statement that we can’t shy away from.

It is no surprise that ladies are making this beads game stronger as the modern version of this style is being worn with class by celebrities.
