CoronaVirus Hairstyle Now Trending In Africa. PHOTOS

A spiky coronavirus hairstyle and haircut is growing in popularity and trending in Africa - here's why

The haircut, which is around 90% cheaper than other styles, uses threaded yarn rather than synthetic hair to create the shape.

The hairstyle is known for being cheap to buy.

A hairstyle featuring distinctive braided spikes that look like the coronavirus has begun a resurgence in East Africa.

The style's revival is partly related to the financial struggles linked to the coronavirus restrictions, with it being so cheap, along with raising awareness that COVID-19 is real.

The distinctive style had gone out of fashion after real and synthetic hair imported from places like China, India and Brazil began to enter the market thanks to increased demand by locals and displays in hairdressers across the continent.

In a makeshift hairdresser's at the side of the road in Kibera, a slum in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, Sharon Refa has started braiding the hair of young girls into what has been dubbed the "coronavirus hairstyle".

While wearing a facemask, she said: "Some grown-ups don't believe that the coronavirus is real, but then most young children appear keen to sanitise their hands and wear masks. So many adults do not do this, and that is why we came up with the corona hairstyle."
