I have found out that Africans are naturally powerful people, which is why we tend to dominate any environment we find ourselves. However, it is due to this trait Africans have that causes us to embrace fashion trends that accentuates this characteristic.

Back in the day, ladies wouldn’t even dare to think of getting a haircut let alone going the extra mile of actually getting it. This fresh new trend is making the hair of many ladies breathe again. I particularly, am a fan of the bald look; the thing is, I have a thing for ladies who cut their hair. I think it’s daring, sexy, and ultimately alluring. The baldie-locks has a way of locking the attention of people each time a lady walks by rocking the look.

The baldie locks look isn’t being rocked by only ladies, men also have chosen to get rid of all the thick dark curls taking up space of the beautiful scalps.

The look is often times accompanied by big earrings and dark bold shades – to give it the mean feel. Some people have said that they are in love with the baldie-locks mainly because it is very easy to maintain and it accentuates jewellery, body shape, and outfits. While some others have said that they chose the look because they thought they’d look fabulous in it and it turned out they were actually correct.

The baldie-locks has now become a common sight on the streets of Africa, runways, television shows, and social media pictures.

If this trend continues, what would it mean for the hair industry?

It surely would mean a drop in the sale of weavons and hair attachments and a huge boost in the sale of wigs for women. However, I think this is one trend that sweeps the continent for a brief moment and everything goes back to the way they used to be, but if for any reason it doesn’t go away in a hurry, hair marketers and brands should diversify their businesses into production of wigs (head coverings) and also baldie-locks treatments. Your customers would love you.

Let me go join the trend; getting tired of my hair already.
