They've been popping up all over fashion magazines and the runways these days. I adore them. Seems like the kind of thing you could pull off at any age, whether you're 22 or 62.
I asked my hairdresser whether he'd had any requests from his clients for a braid. He hasn't, but he did tell me how to go about achieving the look myself. And yes, this involves purchasing some fake hair.
Now, I wouldn't begrudge anyone a trip to buy fake hair to complete a look, but I just don't think you'll see me driving to Arlington so that I can finally have a braid (famous last words, right?). I'll admire others' longingly and urge friends who DO have long hair to try it out themselves.
