But The style has come in for some online criticism too…

Sorry Donna, it seems it is already too late.

The trouble with ‘man braids’ is two-fold.

Firstly, it suddenly sees men take credit for a style women have rocked for far longer, and far better I might add. It is just a braid.

Secondly, it just isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing look. It’s ridiculous, in all honesty.

Fair play to any man who does spend hours on YouTube painstakingly learning how to put a plait in place, and kudos for the commitment to growing your hair.

However, attempting to claim the braid as a ‘man’ style doesn’t seem all that fair at all, does it?
