No, enqueueing of styles for the front end of the site should be in a
function hooked to the wp_enqueue_scripts action, *not* to

Correct way:

function my_enqueue_stuff() {

The reason for this is that wp_print_styles is the last possible
moment to enqueue a style, and so it should be reserved for
*dequeueing* styles instead. Enqueue early, dequeue late.
