Is there anyone in the world who wouldn’t want a head full of great hair? I don’t see many who wouldn’t. Hair is a very embellishing feature of our personality. It can make all the difference to the way we look.
Often we catch ourselves describing people as – “Her hairstyle is kiff my bru!” or “Ohhh..Such long silky hair, China“
So its imperative that we take utmost care of our precious hair.

Our Top 5 African On-Demand Hair Stylist
#1: Criss-Cross Goddess Braids | Eish!
Chunky cornrow braids, referred to as goddess braids, are perfect for days when you want to give your hair a break or when you are going on a beach vacation and would rather not worry about styling your strands every morning.
The great thing about the braids of this size is that they don’t take too long to do and are easy to take out.
#2. Natural Braided Hair | Howzit?
Some African women’s hair naturally wavy and very coiled up hair. They like to keep their hair in braids to avoid mess. This is a popular African hairstyle look. Even you can sport this hairstyle.
If you are not good with braided hairstyles then you can consult a good hairstylist for this. You need to maintain this hairstyle with proper shampooing.
A use of serum on hair keeps this type of hairstyle in shiny condition.
#3 Braided Ponytail | Shot!
As wonderful as braids can be to create interesting protective styles, braiding hair can sometimes feel heavy when it comes to hairstyles with individual plaits.
A cornrow ponytail is great for a casual updo that won’t pull on your edges.
#4 Coiled Bob Hairstyle | Ja? Nee?
This is a very out-of-the-ordinary African hairstyle look. For this a hairstylist on-demand request is essential. If you have become tired of sporting normal curls, then you can give coiled curls a try.
This popular afro look can become your favorite choice too.
#5: Snake Braids | Yussus
Long and curvy braids are not your typical cornrows, but the idea is pretty much the same. Try the snake braids if you want a fresh take on the hair braided closely to the scalp.
Add golden beads for extra bling!
