Thanks to Janet Jackson's portrayal of Justice, the "box braids" as I know them, were a must after the release of John Singletary's Poetic Justice. Were we calling them protective styles then?

With Regina King as Iesha, both ladies wore their braids in a way that seemed authentic to their characters as well as themselves.

Here Janet helped to revive the trend this year with a throw back her classic look from 1993 in an elegant bun.
Regina King chose cornrows for her bun in this recent picture. Apparently Janet and Regina made a pact not to age in back then.
Flashing back to Poetic Justice, memories of the times came rushing back when I remembered Bonita Applebum by A Tribe Called Quest was on the soundtrack. The best hairstyles and music are always timeless, so I gotta put you on.
