Plaited wigs, now a trend­ing hair­style

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Eseohe Eb­hota


When it comes to fash­ion, Nige­rian women are never left be­hind, es­pe­cially when it comes to keep­ing up with the lat­est trends, whether it has to do with cloth­ing or our hair. How­ever, it is no longer news that wigs are now trend­ing in dif­fer­ent styles and tex­ture with the lat­est now be­ing braided hair wigs, used by all fe­males, ir­re­spec­tive of the age.

How­ever, be­cause of our busy sched­ules, we find it dif­fi­cult to al­ways change our hair-dos on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. As such, we re­sort to us­ing caps, or bet­ter still, wigs. This trend has made most ladies to pre­fer the hair wigs es­pe­cially the braided one. Some who spoke to YOUTHVILLE gave their rea­sons.

An un­der­grad­u­ate, San­dra Uyim in Abuja said, “I truly love these lat­est hair wigs be­cause they are beau­ti­ful and they also make you look ma­tured. I love the way they look be­cause after wear­ing them, if you do not look closely, you will not know I am wear­ing a wig.”

An­other re­spon­dent, Ese Gift said she prefers the braided hair wig to the weavon wig be­cause, “it doesn’t gen­er­ate heat like the weavon and it is eas­ier to main­tain. I was us­ing the weavon wigs but I stopped be­cause it caused a lot of heat and headache for me.”

For oth­ers, they pre­fer the hair­style be­cause its af­ford­able.

Con­firm­ing this, hair stylist Uche Glory be­longs to that school of thought. “I am a hair stylist, most ladies who come to my shop pre­fer buy­ing the braid wigs than the weavon; and I un­der­stand why. This is be­cause these braid wigs cost less.”

Con­cur­ring with Gift, Uche added that these wigs are eas­ier to main­tain. “These wigs are eas­ier to main­tain than the weavon caps. I know be­cause I have both and I pre­fer us­ing the braid wigs than the weavon.”
