So you can see why we were happy for the cornrow trend to stay safely in the 90s/early noughties. Especially after particularly tight rows and lack on suncream resulted in an epic sunburn.
So we were quite surprised when we saw this behind-the-scenes video of Chanel's new ad starring Kristen Stewart.
Not one to follow the rules, the Twilight actress boldly sports cornrows on the sides of her head and, wait for it, crimped hair. It almost makes her cowboy clothes look tame.
And you know what? KStew totally pulls it off, looking all cool while taking tips from Karl Lagerfeld on how to model Chanel's AW14 collection.
The cornrows are kept to the sides of her head while a fluffed French braid at the top creates a bit of a mohawk look, giving it an instant update.
Bang on trend with this season's braided hairstyles we say. We might, just might, revisit the trend.
