Janet Jackson probably didn’t realize (or maybe she did) that the hairstyle she wore in “Poetic Justice” would transcend through the 90s and well into the 2000s. Her famous, and trend-setting long, thick box braids became the signature look for sassy women everywhere. Not only are the twisted tresses uber-stylish and easy to manage, they’re a protective style that promotes growth and healthy hair (who knew). Celebrities continue to embrace Janet’s look and continue to evoke the memory of John Singleton’s classic character and film.
