The singer/song writers’ braids are always awesome, perfect, neat, and tiny!
How do they do it?!
Her cornrow designs vary from cornrow zig zag braids leading to box braids to braided updos to flat twists! Even if you have short natural hair, you can make them work by adding or moving around some of the braids.
I love her hair and I love contests so I’m here to combine the two. Rules? None. All you have to do is recreate any of the Alicia Key’s hairstyles. TIP! It doesn’t have to be one of the ones featured on the site.
The contest is all about having fun. You can do the braids on your own hair (!!!!), a friends’ hair, your mommas’ hair, the milkman’s hair, it really doesn’t matter. Hair can be Caucasian, biracial, black, permed, pressed, natural, relaxed, balding whatever! Your choice! Come back often to rate the styles here!
