Longs braids are fashionable again.  On white or black girls! Remember the long braids of Cleopatra, Salt’n’peppa, Brandy, Christina Aguilera and all those 90’s singers?

Rhiannon Jones, the creator of the brand Bolshie is probably one of the pioneers of this trend. It’s been a while since she first started wearing long braids. However, the singer Lucrecia, always used colored braids for her signature style. And Kerli, the Bubble Goth queen, recently wore colored braids.  So did the Californian It-girl Brooke Candy.  In London, the two girlfriends Zandile N’komo and Rharha took over the “Brandy and Monica” style mantle.

On the boy’s side, it’s easy to imagine a re-fashion-ization of the plaits braids. And digging a bit deeper, it’s possible to envision “fake dreadlocks” as a new hairstyle trend. The singer Maluca Mala already wears dreadlocks on her head.  And the androgynous model Andry Bradin recently exchanged his very Marylin Manson-inspired straight black hair for black dreadlocks.

I’m sure you’re already thinking of running to the closest Afro hairdresser in your area!

GOODBYE ENGLISH VERSION!

Dear english readers, I’m sorry to announce that I won’t translate my articles in english anymore. I don’t have enough time and I unfortunately can’t afford a translator. One day maybe…but until then, you can probably read the french version with Google translator. Thanks for reading me!
