Danielle Brooks can do very little wrong in our eyes. The body positive actress always slays when it comes to her clothes and beauty. So it should come as no surprise that when the “Orange Is The New Black” actress decided to switch up her ‘do for summer she absolutely killed the game. 

There’s no denying that box braids are a staple style among Black women, with celebrities like Mary J. Blige and Gabrielle Union donning them during the warmer months. So, we love when women find a fun way to spice up this go-to style. 

When Brooks recently hopped on Instagram to show off her braids we were instantly in love. In addition to the extra drama in the form of making them waist length, Brooks went all with colorful wooden beads. 

“Why Photoshop when you this PHAT (Pretty, Hot and Tempting),” Brooks captioned the photo. And of course, we couldn’t agree with her more. 

We can’t wait to see how Brooks continues to style and rock the braids this summer.
