It’s safe to say we never saw this one coming. Where long curly locks have played a central part to her performances, head banging and all, Beyonce has now traded it all in for braids. The stage's wind machine no longer has a purpose. As with every look, Bey is rocking the braids well. Statement bun, model-esque pony tail whoever could be her inspiration? Little sis, Solange maybe? Undoubtedly her sister has taken on box braids as her own, over the last few years, bringing back the side pony and working the African head tie. Though as both sisters are taking a step outside of the female-celebs-must-have-long-glossy-weave cycle, we must congratulate them for their break through. For those who aren't rocking the look already, after Beyonce's input the trend is sure to catch on. Knowles sisters, we salute.
