Do you prefer preppy braids or R 'n' B style boxer braids? Kim Kardashian and Alexa Chung go head to head in this hair match to help you make your final decision.
Alexa Chung's double braids
The hairstyle: Alexa Chung demonstrates with this hairstyle that braiding a bob is entirely possible. The trick is to start the braid, or braids, as high up as possible and then go from there.
The style: Preppy as can be, and right in line with Alexa's British side, these double braids look great on the it girl. The short length of her hair is what keeps them modern and cute.
What the editors say: The long bob or ''lob'' is currently one of the trendiest haircuts, and it's long enough to be able to be styled into lots of different looks, like these double braids. Alexa's is the perfect length, allowing her to wear a variety of different hairstyles, ranging from red carpet ready to hippie chic to these adorable braids.
Kim Kardashian's boxer braids
The hairstyle: Kim's boxer braids are inspired by a very well-known African American hairstyle: cornrows. They were a popular look in 90s hip-hop culture, and today more and more people are starting to wear the double braided version of the style, like Kim.
The style: This hairstyle is a very urban one, but boxer braids are a great look for the gym, the beach, or even for a night out. You'll be seeing it everywhere this summer, as it's definitely a style that's been trending and will continue to be popular for months to come!
What the editors say: Seeing as Kim is married to one of the biggest international rap stars to date, it only seems fitting that she would start to wear this style. However, though the platinum blonde version of the look is definitely unique, we personally feel that the boxer braids suit her best when her hair's brown.
