Love It or Hate It? Nicole Richie's Bun and Braids

Love It or Hate It? Nicole Richie's Bun and Braids

Nicole Richie arrived at the A Time For Heroes Celebrity Carnival, an event that supports pediatric AIDS, with her hair styled in a center part, milkmaid braids on the sides, and everything secured in a low, messy bun in the back. I wonder if she's mastered the art of braiding herself by now? I'd like to think so, but something tells me that she's probably had help creating this intricate hairstyle.

I'm still not sure how I feel about this look. In the hot summer sun, it's a great way to stay cool and look chic, but braids seem young and unkempt to me. What are your thoughts — do you like or dislike Nicole's bun and braids?

i like it, and sorry to be harsh but def not on her, the big glasses and hair style has an alien effect...not her best look

I think the front looks really harsh. The back is fine, though. If there was a way to make the front section look softer, I think it would improve the look.

I like it, I think its cute and quirky and summery. Not sure about the center part, which lends it some severity, but when I think about removing the part and pulling it all back, the look might tip over into "Frau" territory, so that would not work either. I like the messy aspect of the bun, its a nice finish and contrast to the sleeker front of the style. I have to say though I think that the sunglasses are far too big for her face and do not make the best of her nose.

I wish my hair did that ... even when it was long enough, it was too thick! My braids would have looked like Princess Leia buns.

The look is adorable, however, I'd love to see the natural texture of her hair for once. Her hair is naturally curly, right?

It looks alright except for the fact that her extensions are showing...

I like it from the front or back but the braids look too thick when you see it from the sides.

She can do no wrong as a fashionista.

Her hair is great. However, the sunglasses have got to go. They're wearing her.

I like it, though I'm not 100% crazy about the center part.

I really like it, I wish I could do something like this. It does look young, but she is young! I'm a year older than her & i'd still do it if I knew how.

The hairstyle is ok. I don't like it.. to me it's just ok.

I like it but she needs a little more action up front. Maybe some loose pieces...or a side part? It's just hard to pull off a middle my mind..

i've always been really partial to braids, i am so happy to be seeing so many of them. i only wish i were better at braiding my own hair.

I do braids into a messy bun all the time! I love it. It keeps your hair out of your face while looking put together at the same time. Also its great when you have dirty hair and don't have time to wash it.
