19 Hairstyles That Will Remind Every Girl Of Secondary School In Nigeria

April 23, 2020

Secondary school was a bit ghetto, especially in terms of hairstyles. You have to make the hairstyle they called, and failure to do so was trouble. No attachment too, because they will accuse you of showing off. Thankfully, those days are over. Which of these hairstyles do you remember?

1. Feathers.

Koroba is a Yoruba word for bucket. The hairstyle is named because it looks like an upturned bucket.

This can be made slanted or straight.
