Simone Biles's Post-Olympics Hairstyle Has Summer Written All Over It

Simone Biles recently made her way back to the states after supporting Team USA at the Tokyo Olympics earlier this month and she's already rocking a new hairstyle. Shortly after making it home, the athlete shared a few snaps of her new hairstyle — waist-length knotless box braids with wavy ends — via Instagram, and we can't think of a more perfect style to round out the summer with.

Biles previously wore her natural hair while competing in Tokyo, and before that, she had just recently debuted a lob haircut. Considering the nature of protective styles, it's likely that she quickly switched to braids as a way to sport something that requires minimal maintenance for a while. She showed off her braids in a fun bikini pic shared on Aug. 8. "Sweet like candy," she captioned it. Get another peek at Biles's new hairstyle ahead.
