Rihanna is on the cover of February’s I‑D magazine rocking a fierce set of chunky braids or plaits (if you’re from the old school). While we’ve certainly seen an uptick in popularity for traditional box braids, these individual plaits usually aren’t given a second thought. Does anyone foresee this style catching on?
The singer also donned bantu knots. Now, Rih is no stranger to this style. She most recently rocked them at the iHeart Radio Music Awards last May. She’s really giving me “Runaway” era Janet Jackson here.
What do you think of the looks? Do you think plaits will be the next style to gain popularity?
