1. French braided bread

Although French braids, or three-strand gathered plaits, did not originate in France, braided bread is distinctly French. Rather than call this braided hairstyle by its origin country, which no one really knows because they have been around for so long, people refer to gathered plaits as French braids likely because they are reminiscent of French braided bread. In France, even their bread looks pretty.
