Myriam Fares recently traded in her signature, larger-than-life curls in favor of waist-skimming, violet braids. The major hair transformation, which she underwent for her new music video Chouf Halak Alayi that premiered five days ago, resembles the pastel-colored, hand-dyed wool dreadlocks seen on the models at Marc Jacob’s Spring 2017 ready-to-wear show. The appeal of braids, which have recently been embraced by Rihanna, Beyoncé, and Zendaya, lies in their ability to instantly change up a look without any long-term commitment.
Naturally, the Lebanese superstar pulls the style off with aplomb. In the music video, the singer piles her swingy mane into a half-bun style. Off-duty, however, she opts for something more breezy. Fares posted a by-the-sea snap to her Instagram account, with her long, swingy plaits gathered neatly atop the crown of her head and wrapped firmly with a printed, blue scarf. The singer’s take on the headscarf offers a chic solution to the heat, while providing wearable inspiration for a stylish seaside jaunt, especially when paired with oversized hoop earrings.
