“Gross. Looks like an overgrown dreadlock (and I like dreads, I had them for seven years) or maybe it looks like a tree branch. It’d probably knock you out if you were in bed with it.” - Tim, 26

“They aren’t sexy…just cute, at most. They’re best for the beach.” – Matt, 28

“I’m not super attracted to anything that looks like a giant tail growing on a girl’s head.” - John, 26

“When done right, braids can look attractive, but these seem really messy.” - Tyler, 24

“I am not a fan of the long thick braids. They look like a dirty shower drain.” - Cameron, 24

“Where is the braid? It looks cute, but I wouldn’t have known it was a braid.” - Aaron, 22

“I like it. I’m into that braid-in-the-halo style.” - Michael, 27

“I don’t have a lot to say, but I think the hairstyle is completely hideous. A throwback hairdo that is one part Jane Fonda ‘headband’ and one part Princess Leia; they both were bad looks.” - Jacques, 40

“I like it. It’s pretty more than sexy, like it came from a fairytale.” – Wayman, 41

“This braid is actually pretty cool. It looks like normal hair with a twist (see what I did there!). I could go for a girl with this one.” - Tim, 26
