There has been a ton of discussion in regards to whether or not Kim created this new boxer look or if they are really just cornrows.
Well if you are familiar with the African-American community then you know these braids are NOT new. They are very common and have been used for years. Not just a few years either, we are talking about at least 100 years at the very least. I personally wore these faithfully throughout my highschool days which are definitely back in ancient times 🙂
Please do not write me about how the braids are just getting popular because of her either. There are many celebrities that wore these braids first. Don’t believe me click my pinterest Cornrow Board.
But this seems to be a trend lately for African American Hair Styles to be taken and considered something else. I have seen this is in. Basket Weave Braids being renamed to “Zipper Braids”?
I went online and people are livid because it’s annoying to be honest. If you know the origination of something was in your heritage or culture and another individual takes credit for it…. I know you would feel at least a bit annoyed.
