According to Refa a hairdresser in Kibera, the biggest slum of Kenyan, there are more and more girls who want to make their hair braided like small antennae spikes which look similar to the coronavirus. 

In fact, the coronavirus hairstyle has nothing to do with fashion. However, youngsters in East Africa want to make it popular to raise people's awareness of the novel virus. In their country, the grown-ups don’t believe that coronavirus is real. They denied washing their hands or wearing masks. That’s why hairdressers like Refa came up with the idea of the offbeat hairstyle which is also affordable to everyone.

Just like any other country in the world, the coronavirus crisis has hit East Africa and taken the toll of the whole region’s economy. In slums like Kibera, most people lose their job due to the pandemic. That’s why parents prefer a cheap hairstyle for their kids no matter what it looks.

Mariam Rashid, a 26-year-old mother, told reporters:

“COVID-19 has destroyed the economy, taken our jobs from us, and now money is scarce. I therefore decided to have my child’s hair done up like this at an affordable 50 shillings, and she looks good. The hairstyle also helps in communicating with the public about the virus.”

According to their sharing, this coronavirus hairstyle only costs around 50 cents while a normal hairdo takes them $3 to $5, and this amount is a luxury at the moment.

As all of us are still under the lockdown, you can create a funny coronavirus hairstyle on your own with these quick tips:
