The beauty hair story of Nigerians started long before civilization started, even though the ancient Nigerian woman may be called a primitive woman, her hair was always her pride. Over the years, we have seen a transformation of hair styles. From the rubber thread to the wooden hair styles, and from the wags to the Brazilian weaves, the trend is always changing.
Have you seen a Nigerian lady on her naturally curly hair? Ahh…Ladies of the modern age are now looking for ways to make sure that their hairs stand out in the crowd. Little wonder you may find it hard to see an African lady with her natural hair. The reason is simple and can be traced to the trend of the day.
Nigeria is a country that is diverse in its tradition and custom which can be easily seen on the hairs of the ladies from different parts of the country. In a nation of dramatically contrasting wealth and poverty, one common social symbol of choice is the hair extensions that the women make use of. These hair products are so popular that hair companies are making so much money in the country.
No woman wants to be caught with a hair that would not make her proud. In the early years of every Nigerian lady, they are taught to look after their natural hair just like the way the men are taught how to their shoe laces.
You need to take a day off and watch these women in salons, where stylists give every customer a special look after their services.
Nigerian women like the latest fashion and this has affected the mentality of their men, who now would complain when their partners do not have a nice hair style. Interestingly, celebrities like Beyonce has inspired most of these ladies to look chic and better when they copy hairstyles.
The truth is some of these hair extensions are very expensive and the economic condition of the country doesn’t stop some of these average women from spending so much on their hairs. It is better they look beautiful than eating a good meal.
Over the years, we have seen evolution of these hairstyles and have come to embrace them. There is no end to what hair stylists can do when they are asked to style a hair.
