41 Times #BlackGirlMagic Was Off The Charts At Afropunk

All due respect to (amazing) acts like Solange, Sampha, and Raphael Saadiq, but our favorite part of Afropunk is always the glam. There's no such thing as being overdressed or underdressed at the annual festival, held at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park. Anything goes, meaning that you'll see just about everything. Unicorn box braids? Check. Curls that defy gravity? Absolutely. And of course, you'll get your fair share of Afros in every curl pattern, height, and shape, too. Black Girl Magic is very real, duh. To see it shape shift a thousand times over in one weekend is a sight to behold. Scroll on to see some of the most supernatural looks that we witnessed.
