In 1979, the movie 10 caused a cornrow craze after millions of American’s watched a glowing Bo Derek run across a beach while her multitude of beaded braids bounced in unison. Thirty years later, celebs like Kim Kardashian and Ciara are taking the current braid trend to the extreme by sporting a similar, yet chunkier, style. We want to know: Would you wear your hair in cornrows?

Personally, I wouldn’t wear them. I don’t think I would pull them off at all.

This girl would be beautiful w/out hair.

Cornrows are so passe,
she(Kim) or anyone else shouldn’t wear them.
I wouldn’t.

i love kim, but she could retire this hairstyle. it looks ok on her but def. not her best.

Dawn on

I am glad they showed this picture of what she looks like without make-up. They make these celebrities look great with all their make up and hair tricks and it is unrealistic without stylist. This proves that she is just a normal girl like all non-celebrity women.

i think i would get a headache if my hair was pulled that tight!!

Wow on

I have never liked cornrows because they really, in my opinion, flatter no one. However, to work out, I want my hair away from my face. So, for a workout, they are fine.

Dominique on

I wouldn’t try them but I think Kim can pull any hairstyle off.

Dione Robertson on

An inmovable style that stays put until you take them out, good on land, sea and air. Yep! I would wear it. Far more styling than a swim cap; and when you unravel it you have waves in your hair!! Two styles, for upfront effort!!

During the weekend or at the beach..maybe??
