1. In good ol’ cornrows 

You can never go wrong with cornrows. They always work. According to my mummy, it brings out your face.

2. Afin Oba (King/Ruler’s Palace)

In the centre, we have the ruler and the rows facing down are the subjects. The style is also called “basket” in some states and it’s a hit. Just look how glorious she looks.

3. Thread 

Yes, my dear, thread. This is 2021. We are smashing colonial norms. Who told you thread can’t be stylish? Think again. The beauty of thread is that you can style it any way you want and lowkey, we’ve been doing a version of thread — you know those Brazilian wool hairstyles that reigned in 2018? You’re welcome.

4. Morinmo 

This hairstyle is a variation of thread. In Yoruba, the word Morinmo is a sexual act lmao. Maybe that’s why it looks so gorgeous. Who knows? All I know is that I definitely want to try it.

5. In a bun

There is bun and there is bun. You can do anyone you like and they all look good.
