Real hair­styles to copy

We hit the pave­ments to check out the trendi­est looks


HIGH­LIGHTS Erika Rid­din (51) Som­er­set East

‘This look is in­spired by my daugh­ter – we have the same hair­cut – and she was in­spired by her favourite mu­si­cians, An­nie Len­nox and Pink’


Use a smooth­ing sham­poo and con­di­tioner to keep frizz and fly­aways at bay. If you’ve dyed your hair, use strength­en­ing or pro­tein hair treat­ments.

SOFT QUIFF Rene Zarshe (34) Bokel, Ger­many

‘I like this cut be­cause you can style it in a few ways and it’s easy to main­tain’


A quiff needs to be struc­tured and have body. Use a vo­lu­mis­ing prod­uct that of­fers hold but wash your hair of­ten to avoid build-up.

PUR­PLE BRAIDS Lindo Sibiya (27) Soweto

‘I’ve al­ways felt more com­fort­able with dark colours, but be­cause it’s the hol­i­days I wanted to try some­thing that’s out there, like this colour’


Ex­ten­sions are the best way to go for colour if you don’t want to com­pro­mise the health of your hair. Just re­mem­ber to take care of your nat­u­ral hair with braid spray.

GLASS-BEADED BRAIDS Mbali Zwane (23) Rusten­burg

‘I usu­ally play it safe but this time I wanted to try some­thing dif­fer­ent with these see-through beads. I think this hair­style is great for the fes­tive sea­son’


Beads are trendy now, es­pe­cially on braids and corn­rows. Just like short hair, corn­rows re­quire that you nour­ish your scalp reg­u­larly with hair food.

HIGH-TOP FADE Mar­shall Ndlovu (26) Jo­han­nes­burg

‘This is one of the two styles I usu­ally go for – ei­ther this or a brush cut. I like this look be­cause it’s pop­u­lar, it suits me and it’s easy’

TIP The high-top fade is easy to style but needs a lit­tle more main­te­nance than other cuts. Keep a trim­ming ma­chine handy to main­tain the sides. SOME­THING BLUE Adel Stry­dom (30) Mar­gate

‘I love ev­ery­thing vin­tage but I like to add a mod­ern touch. My choice of blue is in­spired by mer­maids and my home­town’


Use prod­ucts and tools that help main­tain the colour and health of your hair. Be­fore colour­ing, ask your stylist about the ef­fects the colour will have on your hair and which prod­ucts you should use.
