Hairbraids are great.
I didn’t start out loving them. With thick curly hair at the age of 12, my mother took to French braiding my hair. Which, to her credit, was a brilliant way to tame wild hair. The flip-side was that now everyone knew my mom did my hair! I could never wrap my arms around my head and twist and tie my hair into a beautiful french braid.
In my thirties now, I’ve taken a new look at hairbraids. Sienna Miller pulled them off beautifully with a certain “swedish princess” look. When I (tried) to pull off this style, my boyfriend said to me, “Are you going out like that?”. Hmmm…
For a more wearable look, I look to none other than Nicole Richie. Not a fan of her work (what does she do anyway?), and not always a fan of her fashion, her style is always unique. And her braids kick-ass.
