Alicia Keys Rocks A Curly Ponytail With A Splash Of Color!

Grammy award-winning musician Alicia Keys looks fashion forward with her hair braided back into a voluminous, curly ponytail. The Voice coach has her espresso strands parted into two sections and braided down with an electric blue chord on both sides. The ends of the chord are wrapped around the base of her ponytail multiple times to hold it in place. The rest of the hair is left out in a ponytail. Alicia is constantly playing with her hair and coming up with new styles that we adore! Style Tip: Revamp a fave look by adding something new—like Alicia did with the chord for her braided ponytail. Sometimes even the smallest change can breath life into a throwback hairstyle.
