In the beauty arena, for FKA Twigs, it's all about the details. From diamante grills to ombré pouts to idiosyncratic facial adornments to era-inspired ringlets, Twigs knows a thing or two about chameleonic looks, all of which are defined by fine-tuned shifts rather than entire above-neck overhauls. The latest iteration? A labyrinthine crown of diminutive braids, woven just in time for this weekend's Afropunk Festival, where Twigs will be headlining.
A visit to her Instagram page today found the performer sharing a shot of her contemporary cornrows, which snaked away from her crown with the exception of three tiny braids: one that ran the length of her center part before forking into a duet of face-framing plaits. Baby curls shellacked to the temple served as an added bit of visual interest, the style in its entirety taking Twigs's makeup-free, freckled complexion to the next level. Above-neck irreverence coupled with a commitment to out-of-the-box fitness? Consider it Twigs's practiced equation for individuation.
