For many years in Nigeria, signature hair-dos were mostly associated with popular musicians and Rastafarians. Nowadays, there are quite a few Nigerians and celebrities outside this circle.

As we all know, of all body features, nothing guarantees you that special outstanding look than a well-nourished and perfectly styled hair.

With the help of the right hairstylist and good hair products, you can move from looking ordinary to looking very fabulous. And most of our celebs tend to be hair style chameleons by nature- rocking different hair-dos to suit the latest fashion trend. But don’t be surprised that despite the changes in hair trends, some celebs are still sticking to a particular hair style for ages.

Here are a few of Nollywood’s signature hairstyle rockers in no particular order that will surprise you.

Their hair-dos are as famous as their famous faces. They are proof that you don’t have to chase trending hairstyle, once you know what suits you and you stick with it. This week’s assemblage of celebs deserve special kudos because they found hairstyles that suited them, hardly strayed from them and went on to build distinct personal and professional brands on the back of their signature looks.

Yemi Alade

The ‘Jonny” crooner, Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter who gained prominence after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009, paved the way into then uncharted territory with her spiky Mohawk packed braided  hair style.  While this cool hairstyle wasn’t new when Alade launched hers, her bold choice redefined its presence within the Naija show biz scene.

Eva Alordiah

We will credit Elohor Eva Alordiah, better known as Eva Alordiah, a Nigerian rapper entertainer, make-up artist, fashion designer and entrepreneur;  with starting the whole half-shaved look, or at least with making people noticed before it now became a huge trend.

Derenle

Adenrele Oluwafemi Edun, widely known as Derenle, is a Nigerian television host whose work has been rewarded with awards both locally and internationally.  From boho style to street style modish, Derenle is always ahead of the trends. He is never afraid of experimenting and has shown up several times on the red carpet with long and bubbling afro hair-dos. He’s the epitome of punk rock well-dressed.

Banky W

Nigerian singer, rapper, actor and politician, Olubankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has been rocking his skin-cut haircut popularly known as ‘gorimapa’ since he “threw away” his famous caps. Gone are the days when folks thought sporting a clean skincut would cause a backlash. These days sporting a skincut seems anything but refined.

Daddy Showkey & Flavour

Veteran Nigerian galala singer Daddy Showkey and Nigerian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and performer-Chinedu Okoli, better known by his stage name Flavour, has one main thing in common. They are known for wearing long dreadlocks  and managing to remain ruggedly handsome while doing so. Daddy Showkey has been wearing the long lengthy locs for more than three decades or more!

Ty Bello and Omawunmi

Would you ever recognise TY Bello and Omawunmi without their famous bouncing afro hair-dos? You probably wouldn’t. Both women, highly successful (just in case you haven’t been paying attention to the news, TY is one of the nation’s most successful photographers and Omawunmi is one of the country’s rare golden voices) have stuck to this hairstyle ever since they found out that it worked best for them. And guess what? They have hardly ever strayed from it in years.

Uti Nwachukwu

Sir Uti has been rocking his long and straight dreadlocks with a bang before his days at Big Brother Africa. Even Up till now, the locks look the same!

Asa

On and off the stage, it’s easy to see Nigerian international songstress Asa, has long favoured short length natural dreadlocks for decades.

Ehiz 

MTV Video Junkie Ehiz sports rich, thick shoulder length dreadlocks and he has been doing so for years.
