Kandi Burruss is known for being effortlessly flawless in her looks. This is often illustrated not only on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” show but her Instagram feed, too. The 43-year-old showed that she still has it going on after posting a photo of herself rocking feed-in braids Sunday. While she received significant praise for her new braided style, fans are drawn into the fact that Burruss supported the stylist who braided her hair by giving her a shout-out in her caption.
“I was looking through my comments last week & @the_aria_show said that she wanted to do my braids to get the word out about her talent as a braid stylist. I love supporting other business women & it just so happened that I wanted my hair braided, so I hit her up,” Burruss captioned for the photo. “Thank you @the_aria_show! I LOVE my braids. If y’all ever need a braid stylist in Atl contacts her,” she added.
Fans rushed to the entrepreneur and reality star’s comments to praise her for not only her new hairstyle but her support for other Black women as well.
“That’s so awesome that you took the chance and supported another black woman business! Your so damn cool n down to earth. It even looks like you came to her house 😊,” one fan wrote.
Her daughter, Riley Burruss, also complimented her on her new ’do. “Wow ok, mom😍,” she said.
“Yass! Kandi you try to support everybody! Definitely one of a kind! She did an awesome job!😘😘💪,” another fan wrote.
“Kandi, this type of support is powerful!! Keep winning.”
“Kandi so real she went to that lady house for her braids. This is why I love her! #AREALONE.”
“Kandi, you are phenomenal, and this is why you are blessed :). Supporting others with such a humble soul:). #Favored #TeamKandi💯💯💯
“She did a great job. The style fits your pretty face. 🙌🏾🙌🏾💯.”
Burruss’ feed-in braids brought a youthful look to the mom of two. Her young looks have even had Burruss compared to her daughter as a twin. On March 27, Burruss joined her husband Todd Tucker for his talk at Clark Atlanta University, and the couple snapped a few photos together that had fans thinking that her daughter Riley had joined her stepdad on his work instead of Burruss.
“Today my hubby @todd167 & I stopped by #ClarkAtlantaUniversity to talk to the students,” the reality star explained on Instagram. “Todd was there to speak about his career in television production & I was supposed to be there just to support, but of course I couldn’t help myself & I had to talk too! I met some great people today! #CAU #ShareWhatYouLearn 📸: @morrisde.”
Fans spoke about how Burruss resembles her 16-year-old daughter.
“Love it! You and Riley are twinning.”
“Omg, you and your daughter are twins. I had to take a second look. Lol, @kandi.”
“@kandi I thought you were @rileyburruss 😳 y’all look soo much alike! 🤗😘”
“You and Riley are TWINS.”
“Your daughter looks so much like you! I thought this was Riley!😊”
While Burruss may be in her 40s, she continuously proves that “Black don’t crack,” as the proof is in her photos.
