Karrueche Tran 

By Erickka Sy Savané

Not all documentaries are created equal. But Elle Magazine’s ‘Braided: An American Hair Story’ taps celebs like Lupita Nyong’o, Young M.A., and Karrueche Tran, as well as stylist to the stars Vernon Francois and author Ayana Byrd to give us an entertaining, political, and historic look at the hairstyle that is more than just a hairstyle but a staple of black culture. Produced by Angel Lenise, Bree Green, and Julie Schott, it’s totally worth watching so click the link!
