Beyonce Brings Back Beautiful Braids From Her Destiny’s Child Days (PHOTOS) (VIDEO)

beyonceThe last time we saw Beyonce's hair like this, she was asking us whether or not we could pay her bills. Her telephone bills. Her automo-bills. Now, ten years later and three Destiny Child's members fewer, Beyonce has gone back to wearing her hair in braids. The superstar was spotted earlier this week with the extensions at a private party downtown in NYC, but now there are real photos of her rocking the new 'do. With long blond braids wrapped into a huge beehive, Beyonce looked summery and chic as she was captured leaving Bergdorf's with Blue Ivy in her arms.

Braids are a great way to let your gorgeous facial features do the talking, and B proves that the style is timeless. But! There's always gotta be a winner. Which braided Beyonce 'do do you prefer:


Her 2001 look on TRL (ah, remember that show?):


Or her 2012 braids:


I've gotta go with her most recent iteration. It looks sophisticated and modern.

Most of us don't have the time to get an elaborate braided 'do like Beyonce's, but her look is a good reminder that braids are a great way to style your hair if you're a new mom.

I mean, who doesn't love a hairstyle that you can sleep in and that requires very little maintenance? It also keeps your hair out of your face and off your neck. It's great for beating the summer heat and if you tie them up on your head like B did, it keeps your hair out of reach of those small little hands that like to grab onto everything and just yank. Ouch.

So! Which Beyonce style do you like best? Would you ever wear braids?
