No more slick-backs or shaved sides: the man braid is the new do.
The braid is no longer something only girls can lay claim to. American actor Jared Leto added a surprising twist to his long locks at this year’s Golden Globes by turning them into a single, neat braid down his back (his scruffy beard remained). It’s garnered more praise than criticism thus far, with one fan even creating a Twitter account for it (@jaredletobraid).
Why I’m saying “yay” to this: it looks more sensible than effeminate on him, and is a pretty refreshing change from the usual combover. Nice one, Leto.
