A woman’s hair is her crowning glory and the way it is styled says a lot about her.
Although men often complain about their wives spending hours at the salon, most women understand the need to look good in the eyes of their husbands so as to keep him from gawking at some other lady in their absence. As a result, ladies are getting creative with their manes so as to stay sexy and trendy.
While the hair industry continues to rake in billions of dollars each year ($684 billion according to Mintel), a sustained decline in the affinity for traditional African hairstyles has been recorded. In spite of this downward trend, many Nigerian women still wear the local patterns with pride as it gives them a sense of identity and is less expensive than the contemporary fringe, braid and ponytail.
