Celebs like Ke$ha and Scarlett Johansson have been spotted sporting tiny side cornrows in their hair, and now Carmen Electra, 40, is the latest in the line of celebs trying out this head-turning new trend. Do you think this will be a hot trend for 2013 — or should it disappear, stat?

Carmen has been bringing out this cornrow style with full force lately. She is already making this look a trend to watch this year! Paired with loose locks and sultry makeup, this ‘do works well to transform her sassy style from the red carpet to the stage! The contrast of her dark roots and platinum blonde braids, however, is more jarring than the delicate ombre of her loose waves.

Asymmetrical styles are popping up all over the place in many shapes and forms, but this edgy side cornrow style is quickly brewing up a bunch of celeb fans. This textured look spices up even the simplest of strands and emphasizes severe side parts (another major trend!) without the commitment of more permanent asymmetrical styles like buzzed side patches or undercuts.

A few braids tucked to the side is an easier — and quicker! —  way to try out the always trendy cornrow style instead of making the huge time commitment involved with twisting a full head of braids. This look turns Carmen’s sophisticated loose waves into an edgy style fit for the Vegas stage!
