Alicia Keys is definitely ready for summer and she's showing the world just that without even uttering a word.
The "Girl on Fire" crooner took to Instagram on Friday night to debut a bold new hair do for the summertime, and it's definitely something out of the norm from what the singer is known to rock.
Rocking just a white tee and red pants, she kept all of the focus on her bright orange and pink braids that went down to her waist.
Take a look, beow:
Rocking out-of-the-box styles is a deliberate action on Alicia's part as she told Glamour back in January that she thinks "it's beautiful when a woman is comfortable not being the norm."
She even spoke specifically about the trend of braids, saying, "I didn't think wearing braid was something revolutionary or iconic; that was just how I loved wearing my hair."
Well, lookin' good, girl!
