Do you love edgy, daring, super cool hairstyles? Do you want to get more creative with your hair? You’ve come to the right place. We predict these will be the top hair picks of 2024, so you’re welcome.


This not-so-popular haircut is inspired by the late Baingor Joiner, a young Nigerian multi-disciplinary artist. Bai is a form of self-expression that represents coolness, creativity, freedom and afrofuturism. Who wouldn’t want to embody these values in the new year?

This radical haircut was football legend and ex-Brazilian striker, Ronaldo de Lima’s tactic to shift attention from his injury during the 2002 World Cup, and it worked. After he sported the cut, he (and his team) won the semi-final against Turkey and the final against Germany. This was the cut he had on as he lifted the 2002 World Cup and won the Golden Boot.

Nigerian artist, Prettyboy D-O, is popular for his creative hairstyle. He dyes his hair in multi colours and patterns — sometimes, it’s wildfire, flowers or heart symbols. D-O is a walking canvas, and his style is for the vibrant risk-takers.
