Hair Icon | Keke Palmer Braids That Killed It On Instagram

Besides being an actress, singer and songwriter, Keke Palmer is known for her exuberant sense of style. And of course, we love her braids! She’s worn so many colors, styles and lengths, and we just can’t get enough. Here’s a breakdown of the top seven Keke Palmer braids looks we love the most:


Look #1: Long Feed-In Braids

So clean, so modern. And with Palmer all in white, this is one of the most effortlessly cool looks we’ve seen on her.


Look #2: Long, Loose Box Braids

Let’s face it: This the real reason why people wear box braids. We love the long, swinging look without having to worry (much) about maintenance.


Look #3: Braids Updo

Whether it’s thrown up in a casual bun or more polished with one at the crown and one at the nape, these box braids can be styled with the most versatility.


Look #4: Playful Ponytail

She just plays the part with that ponytail, doesn’t she? And who could resist?


Look #5: Faux Locs With Shaved Sides

We love shaved sides. We especially love the look when paired with something as bold as locs. This is one of our favorites.


Look #6: Braided Crown

Palmer wore her hair in a half-up, half-down style here, using small braids and/or bantu knots at the crown to keep her locks neat:


Look #7: Goddess Braid With Shaved Sides

For her video “Enemiez,” (featuring Jeremiah) Palmer wore a mohawk with a single goddess braid on top. I think her hair was our favorite part of the video!
