It is craaazy hot, (in my Ashanti voice), and as a result we have seen many celebrities post ‘fresh face’ pictures on Instagram and on twitter which is very refreshing. Ashanti recently showed off her fresh face along with some box braids on Instagram a number of times indicating that she was really feeling that style.
Box braids seem to be in this season, and we think it has alot to do with the weather, whats the point in having your hair out when its always humid, always hot and all you want to do it swim. With Ashanti it might be more than just the weather though, she captioned one of her picture with the following:
“S/o to my girl @yasmin_amira_ For Braiding me up & turning me into my character “Eve” for my new movie “Stuck” #braveheart
Movie or not we are feeling Ashanti’s look and to be honest she looks amazing sans makeup and the box braids just add to that organic look, almost like the icing on the cake.
The blogs are calling Ashanti a timeless beauty, which is a pretty cool compliment. As a matter of fact most of the comments say that she looks like she’s 20 years old at 33.
It’s clear that we tend to appreciate a simple look at times and it is nice to see celebrities step away from the glitz and glamour and just be themselves. We love a great makeup look, but it is ok to take it all off sometimes and for some strange reason a style like box braids can really help to pull of the no makeup look really well.
We agree, she does look younger, fresh faced like the girl next door. I am sure she won’t keep this look for long, most celebrities never do, but for now we are loving it. Check out Ashanti’s pictures and let us know what you think about her new look.
