Hairstyles will never be the same without a splash of colour. Our identity is found in everything that we embody both physically and intellectually. Remember a time in the early 2000’s when Sisqo, an rnb singer, ruled the era both in song and style – this is in terms of the blond hair colour and the durag. Welcome a new breed of South African youth that have chosen to make it trendy to have ones hair dyed in blond. Some people wear the durag and it can be argued that it gives them the cool effect. The durag’s purpose is to sustain a wave motion on one’s hair.
Not only have we adopted or rather borrowed the colour and durag from the 90’s but also the fade hair cut that seems now has added artwork for a modernised twist to it. Africans over the year have not lost their zest to be innovative with what they have. This era is an exciting time for one to get a haircut as barbers are given liberty to experiment on one ethnic hair. These looks are not only to parade our physical looks on our street but “self-love” has been given by taking a selfie and posting these on the Gram(Instagram) with the capture “ fresh out of the box” or “ your boy got a fresh hair-cut’’.
