Courtesy of all things popular in culture there has been a renewed wave of interest in cornrows, french braids and boxer braids. For starters this isn't something new. What is new, however, is Kim K. and 'em sporting these looks.

Now, the conversation about the woman's mane is never ending. If a celebrity has a hair change it is always noticed. And when a group of the biggest names in that world start gravitating to an old trend they sometimes can give it new life. In this case that would be very accurate.
