Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Borrows Beyoncé’s Braids

Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock has pulled a Beyoncé and embraced the braids a cool new hair-over.

The 22-year-old singer has switched her gorgeous afro for a whole head of long plaited tresses, which she debuted on Instagram while chilling in the studio with bandmate Perrie Edwards while working a white-hot mesh dress (very RiRi…).

Braids are more than just a hot hair trend for summer – they’re also a great way to get curly hair to grow.

If your locks (like all of ours) need a little break from styling, straightening and combing, braids could be the way to go.

It’s bold, but if rocked with some serious sass (maybe leave the Monica from Friends beads out of it) can make for one mega cool statement style. Get your braid on!
