Three Stars, One Edgy Braided Hair Look. Who Wore It Best?

Not every star can get as “crazy” with their hair as Pink or Jada Pinkett Smith. But what’s a girl famous for her beautiful tresses to do when she wants to add a little spice — sans a major hair makeover?

These three stars all had the same idea, though they attempted it at three different levels of difficulty. Scarlett Johansson (center) kicked off the trend late last year, adding two thin plaits up and across her Veronica Lake-inspired waves like a headband.

Then a few weeks ago, Jennifer Aniston went for a similar look (see it from all sides here), but with just one braid, the look was a little less funky and a little more glam.

And Wednesday night, Khloé Kardashian went for the boldest look of the three, adding three tight cornrows into her long, side-parted waves, giving us serious Rihanna vibes.

Tell us: Would you try this look? Whose take on the trend is your favorite?

Kardashians are all so digusting, who can even look at the photo to judge? Scarlett is always #1, way beyond the Kardashians in every and any way.

I see what they are doing here…they are mimicking the half shaved head trend but instead of shaving the one side they are braiding. Less permanent but I don’t see what is so great about it…one person does it and then all the stylists have to jump on the bandwagon I guess. Whatever…kind of like a fake tatoo or something…

Jennifer looks too old for this look.
Scarlett looks like she’s had surgery for a head wound.
Khloe – best

first off, how is khloe K a star? secondly their ages are 44 ,28 ,28 respectively. I think these braids are better suited to the 28 yr olds. Its a reach for J.Aniston. Another case of holding on to youth.

Khloe by far looks the best! Her entire ensemble from head to toe looked gorgeous on her….and for all those who disrespect her just because she is a Kardashian need to look at the whole family, she is without a doubt the most level-headed of them all!

Khloe definitely looks the best. I don’t know what she has done to herself lately but she looks absolutely stunning. Definitely the most beautiful of all the sisters.

Not a fan of the corn row look- Sorry Ladies.

Jennifer looks the best of these three (though this is far from her best look) due to lack of scalp showing. The line of scalp with tautly pulled hair is unappealing on the other two.

Oli- on

Did Khloe pumped her lips?
