Actress Regina King made an appearance for HBO Summer TCA Panels and the 48-year-old debuted a new hairstyle that we are instantly in love with! She wore some long box braids but switched it up by adding some color…purple to be specific.
She wore her new purple box braids in a half up, half down style while posing on HBO’s carpet. She wore a full floral Prada outfit and gold sone strap sandals. Super cute!
We love her hair, it’s such a perfect style for summer. Box braids are fun and an easy style to maintain. They can facilitate getting out of the house in the morning rush because you essentially don’t have to do that much to them. The purple hue is perfect for those who want to demonstrate a little style but don’t want to do too much. While everyone might not be into the neon green trend, this is one that’s easier for more women to work with.
Choosing deep purple box braids for your hair can almost go undetectable unless you are in the light. If you are a little shy about taking the plunge there are multiple ways for you to rock the look. One way to rock purple braids is just do do it in the back and under your hair in a layered way, that way, you only see the purple when you wear your hair in a high ponytail or in a top bun. Another way is to just highlight your hair a bit with the purple braids, like an accent. This is more showy than wearing the purple underneath your hair; however, it’s less overwhelming than having purple all over your hair.
