Protective Styling

Ms. Adichie’s Natural Hairstyles to Try this July

July 20, 2017

Hello, beautiful people! The award winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has served us so many hair goals this year we can’t help but share a few here. I noticed that most of them look like protective styles while one showed off some of the current hair trends in Lagos. If you also love easy-to-make hairstyles, then check out her natural hairstyles to try this July.

1. The Haverford College 2017 Commencement Ceremony

Check out the side pompadour of Ms. Adichie as she delivers her speech at the commencement ceremony. Also, notice the twist she gave that ceremonial cap.  Love it!


2.The Inaugural Downtown Columbia Book Festival. Columbia, Maryland.

Here, Ms. Adichie took the two-sided shuku hairstyle to another level. Instead of small cornrows to form the shuku, she did 2 big twists to perfect the style.It perfectly complimented her entire look to the event. Looks like a style that will be easy to pull off too. I’m super tempted to experiment with this style this weekend.

3.Commencement Speech at Williams College:

Her hair-do for this event was a mix of twists & mini buns, or should we say twist & turns. This style is super elegant yet makes a bold style statement.


4.At Dior’s Fall/Winter ’17 Coutre Runway Show at Paris Fashion Week

Beading is the new way to style braids. Everyone is in on this trend including Ms. Adichie. The braids together with her outfit gives her a chic look.
