do you and stop lettin other ppl who know nothing bout the subject direct your actions. as long as you like it qand can keep em up then rock em. that's like asking when are you too old to wear tennis shoes, never as long as you feel good doing it.

Its not age that matters as much as your position in society, growing up i remember seeing 45 yr old dads wit braids. These dudes had dead end jobs and still caught the bus tho.

If you plan to stay in the hood your whole life n sh*t, then u can roc braids till your hairline recedes.....dont wanna look like that n*gga jerry rice.

But if you tryna go somewhere in corporate america, go to college, have a profession, 6 figure career, etc. You probably should cut the braids by the time you leave college, say 22-23yrs old. I had braids for a minute, but I realied that outside the black community, alotta people dont look to highly at ppl with braids n dreads. Realtalk, at first i was like fu*k wut these whitefolk think, fu*k wut my college professor think, but I realized that it was those kinda people who would get me far in life, help me get a job, eventually be my boss, so i had to grow the fu*k up.

I'm 20 i have braids but thinking about cutting them on my 21st birthday. But as long as your hairline is strait you can rock braids.

you can rock braids till you die as long as the hair-line aint that far back & you ain't going bald in the middle of your head (i.e. Jermaine Dupri before he cut his braids off)

I don't think there's really an acceptable age limit, but I think it depends on where you work. You mostly see younger guys with them because they don't need to go into interviews or have a professional job. If your job doesn't frown on it and you aren't going bald, nothing wrong with it to me. And as far as I know, baldness is about genetics, not your choice of hairstyle or wearing hats.

no age, just when your braids start in the middle of your head then it is time to call it quits
