Scandal fans, drop everything because Olivia Pope is back in the White House — well, not exactly, but Kerry Washington, who played the character, did visit and had a chat with Vice President Kamala Harris. For her meeting with the VP, Washington dipped into the 2010s archives for her blonde-highlighted milkmaid braids.
The actor shared two pictures of herself and Harris to Instagram on August 28, and these photos also happen to show her hair from two different angles. From the front, her blonde-highlighted braids form a crown that sits about an inch behind her hairline, and you can’t tell where each braid begins or ends. The second photo shows a side video of this braided style and the pearl adornments she added to it. You might have to zoom in to see these tiny pearls, but in the midst of the plaits, a few of the pearlescent spheres poke through. The tiny hair accessory only added to this dainty hairstyle.
Just looking at Washington’s hairstyle is taking me back to the 2010s. Back then I saw tons of braids in various styles, including milkmaid braids just like these, while scrolling through Pinterest.
