It's been the most-talked about season of My Kitchen Rules yet, and whether you agree with the winners or not — florist Leigh Sexton and "Princess" Jennifer Evans took out the title last night in a mammoth 5-course cook off against South Australians Nic Mazzone and Rocco La Bella — there's one thing you can't deny: braids have been the biggest hairstyle trend for the girls. When we spoke to semi-finalist Emily Cheung, she said: "There are hairstylists there and they do your hair for you. Having the braids really keeps [hair] off your face, and it’s more hygienic to not have to worry about that stuff too. It was great, I loved it because it meant I didn’t have to be worried about hair falling in the food, and we didn’t wear hair nets and in a real kitchen you would wear hair nets. It was a good way to combat that one." If the show's inspired you to get cooking, here are some of our favourite braids for inspiration before you head to the kitchen!
