Coco Austin has a new hair look for summer that she’s already predicting will be iconic. On Sunday, the actress and model, who’s married to Ice-T, with whom she recently had daughter Chanel, flaunted her new ’do while wearing a pink spaghetti-strap top, gray leggings, and hoop earrings. “My new braids! I wanted a little change up for the Summer,” she shared in the caption.

In the video, she twirls around and names her new hairstyle “Da Coco Swoop.”
While Austin gave the style a different name, it’s not new. The side-part cornrows that cascade down the side were popularized by Beyoncé in Lemonade, and many call the ’do “Beyoncé Lemonade Braids.”
It’s actually a popular look for the season, with many trying it out.
Whether or not the 38-year-old’s hairstylist was inspired by Queen Bey, she did ask her followers what they thought of the look, and many of them left comments with words of admiration.
Looks very beautiful on you, Coco❤️

There also were a handful of people who found it hard to even look at her braids, because her curvy backside also had a starring role in the video she shared.
from the angle this video starts with, you know goddamn well no one gives a fuck about those braids.
