‘A Look’: Fans Rave Over Draya Michele’s Twisted Hairstyle

Draya Michele is booked and busy. The former “Basketball Wives” cast member has been spending her shelter-in-place days starring in photo shoots for her swimwear company. With her hectic schedule, it makes sense that she recently got the perfect protective hairstyle to save time on styling her tresses.

On Wednesday, July 1, Draya shared a photo on Instagram that showed her rocking passion twists with laid and slayed baby hairs. Without any makeup and perfectly arched eyebrows, the 35-year-old reality star struck her pose by smizing at the camera. The founder of Mint Swim appeared to be at home. Draya looked radiant as the natural sunlight that seemingly shined through the windows beamed down on her face in all the right places. The entrepreneur wore a plain white tank top, large hoop earrings, and a basic gold necklace.

Draya’s photo received nearly 100,000 likes and some 1,000 comments from people complimenting her hairdo. One user asked: “Tf kinda hair is this?😍.” Someone else gushed: “A look 😍,” followed by another user who commented, “Cute. I love the twist.”

The mother of two gets glammed up often, but she hinted in a February interview with Who What Wear that she prefers to wear natural makeup and simple hairstyles. “Being that I come from Pennsylvania, I didn’t grow up knowing how to do cool makeup or amazing hair,” she said.

“Where I’m from, you’re beautiful based on how you style your baby hair. And the shiniest lip gloss you could buy is what made you beautiful. So baby hair and lip gloss were as simple and as complex as it got,” she added. “I learned from a young age that less is more. Sometimes makeup and overstyled hair can be a little too much for me, so I try to be as effortless as I can because that’s how I grew up.”
