The “Love on the Brain” singer, who just posted a snap of her long, black, center-parted tresses at the Dior Paris Fashion Week 2016 show on October 1, shared a black-and-white selfie clad in a long-sleeved top and lace-up boots. Her standout feature, the dreadlocks, were nearly the same length as her T-shirt. “buffalo $oldier,” she captioned the photo.
