Kerry Washington is a force to be reckoned with, whether she's acting her ass off on a hit TV show or sharing candid selfies with Instagram fans. The Little Fires Everywhere star manages to do it all while looking gorgeous in straight hairstyles, braided looks, or natural curls. For her latest hairstyle, Washington looks stunning in adorned box braids and a braided fringe that we are obsessing over.
The actor debuted the new protective style in a video to promote National Voter Registration Week. The video features Washington with her stunning braids and also features an appearance by her Scandal costar Tony Goldwyn. These dark brown box braids are small and fall well below Washington's chest, though we can't see the ends due to the angle of the video. The fresh braids are adorned with gold cuffs and mocha-colored beads throughout the ends and in the bangs.

Speaking of her fringe, the braids at the front of her head end right at her eye line. There are about 12 braids that make up these cute bangs and each one is decorated with two golden cuffs. Though box braids are a popular protective style, we like the detail these bangs and decorations add.
We've seen Washington with bangs before, but this is the first we have seen her with a braided fringe. She shows fans one of the many ways to add not only bangs to your braided style but also hair decorations, which we love. It's only a matter of time until these braids are taken out and she's posting yet another new hairstyle on the 'gram, but in the meantime, we'll be oohing and aahing over these braids.
