Eva Marcille Pigford Gets A Head Full Of Long Gorgeous Box Braids. Eva the Diva, ( as many might remember her from America’s Next Top Model), showed off some glam long box braids earlier this month. Box braids are huge this winter season, as we reported earlier this week that braids is of the best protective hairstyle for the winter season. We also assumed that many other celebs would soon be jumping on the braided hair train and course we were right. Anyhoo check out Eva rocking her long braids after the jump. Her braids are absolutely gorgeous, they move from a box like style at the top, into more of a loose hair finish at the bottom. She kept the look long and lean by letting the ends graze around tailbone length. Love it!
