Would You Wear Cornrows Like Kim Kardashian?

06/17/2009 at 06:00 AM ET


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.

kim on

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.

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!!

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.

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!!

milly on

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

Ranelle on

she probally could’ve gotten them done differently but at least she’s rocking braids its about sometime that celebs show that they’re normal.

Tom Jackson on

She’s just trying to look more black.

Those aren’t really cornrows. They’re multiple french braids.

Karyna on

I would actually wear this Style because they say Your hair grows faster like this and hey who wouldn’t want to have that sexy long hair like kim kardashian.(:

Kim Kardashian usually looks pretty but seriously, she looks like a hot mess with cornrows…. but really, most people do. Only some women can pull them off… for example, that one gorgeous light skinned girl from the singing group Isyss. SHE was hot with cornrows…but Kim Kardashian just isn’t her so she should just keep her hair long and dark how we like it.
