Our favorite stars work hard and they play hard. As for Tichina Arnold, the actress and soulful songstress took a few days off to vacation in St. Maarten with friends and opted for a quick vacation-friendly ‘do. Enlisting the help of an ATL braider @braidsandwevzatlanta for a last minute style, Tichina hit the beach with box braids.

Monica and Daughter Share Braided Hair Moment

We love this style because her sides were gelled down and made for a unique and fun take on braids. On the plane she shared a pic on Instagram thanking her braider and shouting out some real #blackgirlmagic in her caption: “I needed someone to braid my hair at the last minute for my trip. I searched on @instagram and found her and she came through for me. Let's utilize each other's services when possible. It keeps folks in biz. Her contact info is 404.709.WEVZ #supportblackbusiness Blessings...”

This look is perfect for sun, surf and lazily hanging by the pool. Do you like the look? Have you tried shaving your sides?
