This summer’s most popular duo is undoubtedly braids and beads. The standout style has taken over our Instagram feeds and now, our favorite celebs are putting their own twist on the look.

Last night (June 11), Teyonah Parris stepped out for a Tony Awards after-party and we’re still gawking over her regal take on the protective style.  

Shortly before the show aired, the Survivor’s Remorse star looked glowing and carefree as she unveiled her ‘do, done by the pros at Khamit Kinks Salon, on Instagram:

Later that night, Teyonah turned the slay all the up when she styled part of her braids into a chic top knot.  Capturing more moments on her InstaStory, it’s clear that Parris brought serious Black girl magic to the Tony Awards festivities.


Earlier this year, the naturalista was named the newest brand ambassador for Dark & Lovely and talked to PEOPLE about the journey to love her natural hair. Saying that she never embraced her natural texture until college, she felt that it was an important part of self discovery to let go of relaxers and allow her kinks to flourish.

“It was later, around college, when I realized I didn’t have a clue what my natural hair looks like because I had been getting relaxers for so long. It was a matter of, ‘What does my natural hair look like if don’t manipulate it, or chemically alter it at all? I don’t know! Who am I?’”

Teyonah will return to the small screen when the next season of Survivor’s Remorse premieres August 20 on Starz.
