We hope you all know this is Bo Derek’s fault.
There’s a freedom to braids that all women can appreciate– they last long, don’t require styling in the morning and they look eclectic. But cornrows, specifically, are not for everyone.
Hence our disappointment when DJ Mia Moretti rocked the look for the Carrera Retrospective Exhibition in NYC on Tuesday. The “Master of the Mix” judge usually has her hair in a ponytail or blown out straight, so it was a bit jarring to see the look on her.
We’re not saying the style doesn’t work for all women, but there does need to be some foresight before wearing these kind of braids. Does it work with your face shape? Are there different angles you can position the braids? If you’re not sure, consider the plethora of options: French braids, fishtails, waterfalls, the braided crown, etc.
Or just go here.
