It is a throwback moment to when certain old Nigerian hairdos used to reign in most of the primary and secondary schools in the country. In fact, some schools made it so compulsory that a Head Prefect would choose the style for the week and every girl would have to wear that hairdo or face the music.
So, when you entered a school back then, many of the girls wore the same head style. The exception then was for those who chose to plait their hair with rubber instead of weaving it. Shall we go down memory lane and bring to life these hairdos of old, in which some are still being worn?
It didn’t matter the tribe, this was a must-rock for every girl in school. Whether your hair was long or short, you could pull it off.
The Yorubas loved this hairstyle. By the time you are done making it, the centre of your scalp would be shiny and tender. Who can relate?
It simply means ‘clap’. The hairdo claps at the centre. Cool, right?
This was the simplest of them all. You simply weaved your hair all to the back. You can spice it up by weaving a few to the front, that way, the hairstyle became ‘all back and base’.
5. Police Cap
Police cap wasn’t called ‘all front’ as it would be logical, seeing that it was the direct opposite of ‘all back’. It just had to be given that dramatic effect. Come on, who doesn’t want to wear a Police’s cap?
