It’s a new year and you need to get a fresh hairstyle. It’s time for a new look that goes hand in hand with your solutions and fresh outlook on life. 

The good thing is that there is a style for everyone regardless of what you want to wear. 2022 served us some amazing hairdos and some of them will still be on the trending list this year. 

Whether you want to go long or short, again, it’s your choice. If there’s a classic hairstyle you want to try out, go ahead. The beauty of hair is that the trends are cyclical which only means that it’s a matter of time before what you have is in or out of fashion.

Anyways, here are some hairstyles we think will be high up on many women’s lists this year. 

There’s a variety of locs for you to choose from. From faux locs to butterfly locs, traditional to interlock, any of them will work for you any day. The beauty about them is that they last, longer but you’ll need to really take care of them.

Cornrow Braids

If you walk around Nairobi, you are more than likely to spot a woman in these types of braids. They are in style right now. Again, the options you have here are so many. I think they are easy to install which means less time in the salon, east to take care of and to unweave. I mean, if you are looking for a protective hairstyle that’s easy, the cornrow braids are what you go for.

Bun Extension
There was a time when this was the hairstyle choice of so many women, at least here in the capital. Although it's still been worn, its popularity has kind of faded. I like this style as it just makes your hair look pulled together. If you get one that blends well with your hair, it just adds pop and you might people might just be wondering about your length.

Ponytail Extension

Whilst we are still on the subject of extensions, they will always be in fashion so whatever you go with, rest assured you’ll be OK. About ponytails, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like them. They allow your face and all its beauty to be seen plus you get to enjoy the length of your hair as others admire. 

Natural Hair

Another style you can opt for. With so many eye-turning designs to pick from, cutting your hair short is just the one thing you might need to kick start your year on a high. Gone are the days when women swore they’d never cut their hair. Short is in fashion and as long as you keep it fresh, you will always look fabulous


Seems like we are going back to the 90s with our clothes and hair. As black women embrace wearing their natural hair, the afro has made a big comeback and it’s now cool and stylish. If yours doesn’t pop as much, worry not as you can get some extensions to increase the volume. 

Oh! Don’t we love the contrast in colours that come with this style? It just catches the eye and if you do it right, which is, using the right tones for your hair and skin complexion, you’ll be the centre of attraction wherever street you walk on. 

Bob Cut

This is another haircut I enjoy. It just gives you that edge and makes you look sharp. It almost gives out the statement, I mean business. It also makes for easy hair to wear and maintain. Take a shot at it and we promise you will not regret it. 

There are so many hairstyle options for you. These are the ones we think will do you good this year. Have a great hair day.
