Say what you want about Generation Z, but these kids are our future. They lead the charge when it comes to modern-day activism, showing up and speaking out more than most adults do. They're stylish and insanely talented — and also happen to be the source of some damn good beauty inspo, too.
Take Storm Reid, for example. Throughout the spring and early summer, the A Wrinkle In Time star wore box braids. Actually, I take that back. She didn't just wear the protective style... she reinvented it in her own way, assembling her long plaits in the most innovative ways we've seen in a while. The young luminary has the right idea: If you're going to spend a hundred and change on your look — plus several hours in the salon chair — you might as well make the most of it. Check out some of her best styles, ahead.
