Shawntae Harris, better known as DA BRAT, has always been a natural hair icon. The 42 year old Grammy Award-nominated rapper and actress have been rocking braided styles since she stepped up to the mike over 20 years ago and continues to stay true to flavor. Now, she’s added radio and TV host with Dish Nation and The Rickey Smiley Morning Show to her repertoire and while braids are still in her hairstyle realm we see an updated version and we love it!


Cornrows braided into curly puffs with a bandana at the top are her new signature style and we love it! Who says afro puffs are just for kids? What makes them even better is her choice to add a coppery blond as the color and it makes her hair pop.


She looks absolutely stunning and aligns with the natural hair movement that she was always a part of and might as well be called one of the leaders. While she mostly rocked braids and cornrows back in the day, she’s added a shimmering color and curls to give her a more reflective style of today. We actually got to see a peek of this new style on FOX’s Empire in Season Two and all we can say is we love it, keep rocking it and so happy to have DA BRAT back!
