It was only a matter of time before one of the Kardashian sisters rocked summer 2022's trendiest hair look. And no, it's not Kim's classic Rapunzel-length mermaid waves, but face-framing baby braids. The Kar-Jenner family member to debut the style is of course trendsetter Khloe Kardashian.

We've previously seen Dua Lipa, Hailey Bieber, Gigi Hadid, and most recently Millie Bobby Brown Blonde rock the Y2K look (basically all of Hollywood are doing it at this point). But now, with Khloe sporting the style, we can totally see it taking off globally. Move over Pitbull, for baby braids are the new Mrs. Worldwide.

Having said that, KoKo has put an Ariana Grande-esque style twist on the classic wavy down 'do with the rest of her hair in a slick half-up hairstyle.

First, let's take a gander at the 'traditional' micro-plait look:

Here's Dua:

Next up is Hailey:

Finally, we have Gigi:

And now for Khloe's interpretation of the style:

Has Khloe overhauled the classic aesthetic for something a little more pop-meets-Gen Z? Slay, queeeeen.

On that note, I would also like to know how one can join this so-called "fine wine" band (peep Jen's caption on her story of Khloe above). Is there some kind of an admissions form or do I need to audition? Please let me know ASAP, Khlo.
