Yep!!! Janet allllll they way!

I love me some bey, but I'm not a fan of blonde butt length braids

I LOVED when Janet did the headband thingy too!

Really? I vote for Beyonce!

Beyonce's braids are too small, too long and unkempt. OTOH, Janet's are larger and shorter with sealed, uniform ends. I don't consider Beyonce's braids to be fashioned in the Poetic Justice style given their size and length; but rather like Keisha from up the block. Besides, the black roots-blonde braids thing just looks nasty to me.

I actually associate the thigh-level box braids with Solange more than Bey. JJ's braids seems thicker and not as long.

Even Solange wears those braids better than Bey and why did the video title say "how to do Beyonce's Poetic Justice braids. Wasn't Janet the one who rocked them first?

The finished end look is very 90's and dated.

They're called Poetic Justice braids for a reason...not Sasha Fierce braids, or Beyonce braids :lachen:

Janet for the win!

This exactly! Shouldn't it be "beyonce rocks Janet Jackson poetic justice braids "or something of that nature.

Janet did that.

Let Beyonce have that blonde weave as her namesake. Why do we have to attribute that hairstyle to her when

1. She did not wear it first.

2. She is not wearing the same style and

3. The style is not named after any movie she has been in.

Beyoncé's braids remind me more of Joi from Friday, than Janet from Poetic Justice.

Janet of course! I don't get how these braids are associated with Beyonce nor do I get why they are comparing someone who wore the style 20 years ago to someone who is wearing the style now.
