I remember as a teenager I was enchanted by girls with braids. You see them so rarely now. It's a girlie look of course and at my age no woman would even consider it esxcept a couple of hippie chicks I know. I'll ask them if they'll try a braid, just to bring me back to my teenage years.
My boyfriend LOVES my braid... My hair is long and really curly so it's easiest for me to just keep it in a braid. He will actually help me braid it for me sometimes. He says its hot and sometimes gives me a look of innocence... But it might vary from guy to guy.
