Linda Mtoba shares behind-the-scenes footage from her Mamas & Papas cover shoot

The South African actress and mother-to-be shared an image of her latest hairdo with her Instagram followers on Wednesday, 11 September 2019.   

The mother-to-be took to Instagram on Wednesday, 11 September 2019, to share a close-up image of herself donning long ombre box braids. The box braid trend is one that is popular among celebrities, with many opting for longer length and, at times, floor length braids in different vibrant colours. However, Linda Mtoba opted for a more neutral colour that matches her natural hair colour.

In the image she shared, the actress can be seen wearing the braids in a large, lose bun which is known as a “messy bun” hairstyle to social media users. She paired the hairstyle with a pair of large, gold hoop earrings and bold make-up.

Her neat, unpolished fingers hold a fruit ice cream pop close to her lips. She captioned the image saying, “Braided mommy, been loving my braids, they’ve been so easy on me”. The actress also mentioned that the hairstyle was done by South African health and beauty studio, Fancy Claws, in Durban.

Beauty influencer, Lerato Kgamanyane, and designer, Rich Mnisi, were the first to comment on the post, sending fire emojis to show their approval of the hairdo. Many other social media users, on the other hand, complimented the actress for always looking put together during her pregnancy. The image received over 30 000 likes and over 100 comments.
