Celebrity fashion: cornrow or punk style braid
Bold trends never frightened famous beauties. They are not only afraid to try something new (and unusual), but also do so among the first. This time, many stars wanted to feel the defiant spirit of punk style and add it to their hairstyle.
Soon, we will see other stars that will choose this hairstyle when creating a certain look. Basically, this is a braid, braided tight on one side. The remaining part of hair, ideal straight or elegant curl, is left loose. So the question is: where did this fashion come from?
The stylists of stars, when preparing his charges to go out, began to bring into play the cornrow – this way it is called the special technique of braiding, native from Africa. The braids are braided very tight at the roots of the hair, creating sometimes patterns on the head. This “option” was used by stars in the 90’s and early 00’s, when this technique of hair braiding was the highest expression of style. Now these are only fun memories and cornrow is used only when someone needs to braid one braid on one side.
Unlike many other braid options that celebrities also love to include in their evening hairstyles, cornrow (in today’s interpretation) allows adding impudence to the look, bringing it closer to the punk style. And why do elegant star divas have such a need? The cornrow hairstyle became popular in the period when most desperate ladies began to shave off a small section of hair from one of the temples, leaving in place a short “hedgehog.” Those who did not dare to adopt such drastic measures, come to the aid of this technique. By tightly braiding few strands on one side of the head, the girls received a similar effect, without parting with long hair.
Among those who gave the cornrow another chance to exist, are not only stars, from which you can expect a “punk” escapade – both in life and in terms of style. The cornrow was adopted also by most refined ladies, most ardent supporters of the classics. Thus, the new trend caught fancy both to bold ladies such as Cara Delevingne, Amber Heard, Kristen Stewart, Kendall Jenner, and also to restrained, refined ladies such as Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, Kate Mara, Scarlett Johansson.
