Let’s face it: Beyonce and braids go together like peanut butter and jelly. In fact, the match in heaven goes back as far as when the singer was just a wee (destiny’s) child.

Recently, Mrs. Jay Z switched out her signature long locks for even longer braids and she’s been showing off her ‘do on — where else? — her own personal Tumblr ever since. This week, Beyonce posted photos of herself with her hair a-flowin’ as she relaxed in the sun with her daughter, Blue Ivy.

Meanwhile on her Instagram, the 32-year-old threw it back and shared a photo of her 8-year-old self at the salon getting the same hairstyle.

Yep. Fashion has officially come full circle.
