After giving her hair a break from styling and rocking her natural hair, Erykah Badu’s braids are back and longer than ever. Yesterday, the singer shared a photo on Instagram showcasing her floor-sweeping micro-braids that had social media in awe. We’re talking next level length!
This isn’t the first time her signature 'do got major attention. Last fall, Erykah broke down the intense styling process to the New York Times that requires as many as five women working at once on her head over the course of week. She wants each individual braid to be "as thin as the lines on your hand” and said each individual braid takes between 8-15 minutes.
Insane hang time takes a VERY long time, ladies. See Erykah Badu's new post below.
