Cardi B Made The Case For Ombré Box Braids At Real Street Festival

She looks like a mermaid princess

by Tembe Denton-Hurst

Cardi B performed at Real Street Festival in Anaheim, California, over the weekend, and while many buzzed about A$AP's return to public life, I was more preoccupied with Cardi's ombré box braids. It perfectly combines everything good about summer hair—it's vibrant, scene-stealing (the braids go past the singer's tailbone), and protective all at once.

The "Press" rapper offered a closer look at the braided style on social media, posting a photo, captioned "I can't swim so I bought these titties so I can float," and it's peak Cardi B. Her head is tilted, giving us the full effect of her mermaid-colored braids and her hands are artfully placed, showing off her complementary cobalt blue manicure.

If this alone wasn't enough to snatch whatever edges you had left, a tagged photo of the look revealed that the braids are actually a full-lace wig, courtesy of Tresses x Sandrine, which has created wigs for Cardi in the past. It's the ultimate switch up, and we can't wait to see what look she'll serve up next.

See the look in action, below.
