TRADITIONAL YORUBA HAIRSTYLES FOR WOMEN
Yoruba people are one of the 3 biggest tribes in Nigeria.
They really require a lot of time and effort to make, but it really pays off with a gorgeous look you get in the end.
Their women are very creative in beautifying, adorning, and styling the body.
They make their hair by either plaiting it or tying it with thread.
If you are ready to invest in your hair as well, here are a few Yoruba hairstyles, that will make you feel and look like a queen.
Koroba hairstyle would be great for you if you want to experiment with something original.
Its name means “bucket”, and, as in previous cases, the name fits the style.
It is made by braids coming from the top of the head down, with the ends of the braids often twisted.
It is often decorated with beads, preferably bright-colored ones.
This beautiful style is similar to the actual Eko bridge in Lagos.
The hair is divided down the middle into different sections of about 10/11 and made with black thread, and it is made high from the scalp to imitate the real Eko bridge.
Married women were known to rock this style often.
Patewo translates as “clap your hands”, and it is exactly what this hairstyle resembles.
It consists of braids, that go from the left and right side of your hair and meet about in the middle.
They create a wavy mohawk, that really looks like two hands put together.
The more braids you make, the more complicated and interesting the hairstyle looks.
