We don’t know how Amandla Stenberg inspires us more; with her unapologetic advocacy and outspoken activism or her equally bold sense of fashion, but the young dynamo’s latest beauty look is giving us next-level fall fever.

This week, the 17-year-old “feminist since birth” traded in her curly coif for auburn box braids on the Sundance NEXT FEST red carpet. Paired with a suede dress and red ankle booties, Amandla’s neutral look was the perfect way to play up her sun-kissed summer glow. 

The contrast of her dark brown hair against the russet braids is also proof that dark roots and lighter strands can actually look cool. If you’re unsure about how to style your hair in the coming months, this is a transition style that allows you to blend the bold colors of summer with the protective styles of fall.
