I didn't end up getting the red box braids that I told ya'll about because I got a new job (told my twitter followers but somehow didn't post here yet! I now work for Coach too, so must stay super sophisticated) and instead got brown/golden highlights in the braids.
Deanna, the lady who did my sew in for NYC, did some gorgeous box braids for me all the way down to my butt. I haven't had hair this long in yeaaaars lol, takes some getting used to! I love going to her for braids because they are as close to pain free as can be expected; she somehow makes them crisp yet they don't feel tight and unbearable. LOVES IT!
What do you think of them? They're a throwback to Janet Jackson Poetic Justice braids and Brandy's signature look:
