Funny but popular women hairstyles (i)

Let’s talk about hairstyles today. Let’s get to know you better. How many hairstyles do you know? How many have you done so far since you were born? What is your best hairstyle? 

Today, we will check out some hairstyles in Nigeria and how funny the names of these hairstyles may sound. LOL! Most of us are familiar with some of these hairstyles. In any case, let us see.

Telephone Wire

This is one of the most popular hairstyles in Nigeria and very common among children who are about to clock to 5. That is why it is called the nation’s 5th birthday hairstyle.  Doesn’t the name sound funny or amusing? 

Koroba

The koroba is another popular hairstyle, but mostly among the Yorubas. If you watch or see most Yoruba village movies, you will see this type of hairstyle. It is called an inverted shuku because it is the reverse of the shuku hairstyle we are familiar with. The hair is braided downward from the middle of your head on all sides of the head, forming a basket-like shape. 

Patewo

From the name, it means ‘clap’ when translated from Yoruba because the hairstyle looks like clapped hands. However, it doesn’t belong to this particular set of people because even the Igbos do it. For example, this is one of Chimamanda Adichie’s favourite hairs—and she is an Igbo woman. 

Police Cap

This is another funny hairstyle among Nigerians. The hairdresser braids the hair to the front and drops it down over the fore hair of the person, forming a beret. No wonder it is called the police cap!

Shuku

“What! I can’t plait shuku.” This is exactly what you hear from most of our aunties. But as we age, we get to know that this is just one of the best hairstyles so far because we won’t stress ourselves plaiting them.

Are you enjoying this? There are more!
