Actress Tracee Ellis Ross Rocks Chic French Braids in Soho

Avatar • Jun 3, 2012

It seems like Ms Ross is all about the protective styling when she’s not rocking her gorgeous curls 😉 She was spotted this week rocking chic french braids and a slicked back bun while spending time in New York with her boyfriend, Bu Thiam. I think both looks are absolutely gorgeous. Her hair looks so healthy! Ladies, what do you think? Would you rock these looks? More photos below. All photos courtesy of TheYBF.com.

She’s one of the main characters from the series, that no longer comes on,“Girlfriends”. I love Tracie Ellis Ross she was hillarious as well as beautiful on the show.

I’m not from the US either but how can you not know who she is, seriously. Her name Ross is a big give away.

Lovely chignon and french braids and even lovelier man! *sigh* on the shorts and heels, I never felt the look flattered anyone, her skin looks amazing as usual.

Her hair looks nice…I agree with others about those shorts. I try not to dissect celebrity fashion in paparazzi photos because maybe they know they don’t look good but they just don’t care because the outfit is comfortable. Back to the hair: I was thinking of wearing my own hair like this but was concerned I might be too old for the look. But this is second grown woman I’ve seen this week with the style so I guess I have nothing to worry about! lol

She looks a hot arse mess in all of those photoes, except the hairdo with the bun. Those shorts oh my god, can her wedge get any deeper back there lol.… The boyfriend looks like a version of AKron who is ugly as well. I’m like she is tore up from the floor up and I guess is not having some good days in those pictures..lol

yikes…

hot a*** mess?”

How about it’s “not my style” or “it’s not a flattering look” or “he’s not my type”?

A little nicer, and still expresses the same point…

Just some friendly advice! 🙂

I totally agree, I was thinking the same thing. Having/expressing an opinion is fine, but respect and love should rise above all things. We are all different and what one person likes another may not. It is important to value one another as individuals and always be positive. It says more about US when we are negative, than it does about what we are actually speaking negatively about.

I like both hair styles b/c I wear both. I love french braids. It’s super easy and you can wear them a few days if you cover them right at night.

Those are not french braids, they’re cornbraids. French braids are inward. And I wear that ‘do all the time. Very easy.

I was thinking the same thing. Since when are cornrows french braids? This is just two braids. I probably wore this style everyday as a kid & teen along with everybody else in the projects. Not impressed. Its just a common hairstyle. It is easy and neat though & will keep your ends protected!

i have to admit that the denim shorts don’t look at that flattering, but her legs look great.

the hair is nice as usual. my hair will be in a bun or those braids tomorrow for a meeting; it’s usually what i do.

if the shorts were a tinge bit longer, I hate the cheeky look. The hair is gorg!

Your comment is spot on! I don’t agree with the cheeky look at all (despite the fact that she has toned legs), especially on a woman her age, but she never goes wrong in the hair department!

I’m from London and that style has been around for years. In fact its been around so long, its come round again. We would call it putting your hair into“two canerow”. It was huge in the 70’s and 80’s and then nobody would rarely walk the street with their hair in that style. But like many things its now retro, so its ok now.

I usually like her style (or maybe I liked her Joan Carol Clayton style and now her Carla Reed style?), but I’m not feeling those mom jeans cutoff. The other outfit I sort of forgive because it’s clear that she was traveling, and for many, comfort is more important than style while on the plane.

She’ll forever be one of my favorite hair icons, though.

does it really have to be a “protective” style and not just a “hair style”? I mean, sometimes I put a braid in my hair because it is aestetically (spelled wrong, i know) pleasing. Sometimes I just feel we over-analyze other naturals.

I think the bun makes it a protective style; the fact that her ends are hidden 🙂

Yeah that’s not her in the cutoff jeans. The hair texture is different and so is the body shape.

Why are black women such haters? There was no need to comment on your dislike of her shorts, how she looks, or her man. Can we show love
for one another sometimes. It seems we are our worst enemy.
I like her hair and she looks comfortable for traveling to me.

Agreed. Its not even a black thing. If you people didn’t like what she wore, why bother commenting? Just leave it alone. Some people are talking as if they are on point with their style ever time they walk out of their house.
