You came with your Ilarun(cutting comb). There was usually an argument about ownership where these things were concerned.





Which one of these did you use?


This? :



or this?


or


how about this?





Remember when this hairstyle became outdated and it was only cool to have your shuku really low.

Shuku Ologede


If you had natural hair or really short hair, you did "Didi"


Old didi - after a while this became the old didi style. Seeing it make a comeback though.





New didi - this was the new didi fad. For the cool ones


The hairstyles had such awesome names. Remember "Heavenly King"? and "Shut up( reverse 2 step)"? Nigerian word for "fringe" or "bangs" is "base" or "front".


Which one of these was your favourite?
