10 Nigerian Hairstyles From Beyoncé’s Lemonade Album

Arguably, Beyoncé is one of the most fashionable and beautiful pop star of her generation…

A week ago, Beyoncé released her 6th studio album- Lemonade. The album is unique in its creativity, visuals and inspiration behind the songs. One of our own Laolu Sebanjo introduced a sacred Yoruba ritual called ”Ori” to the album. Lemonade has since received a lot of criticisms from social observers, black celebrities and writers.

Well, the album is getting the publicity Beyoncé wished for. Nonetheless, there is something we found more interesting in the visuals of the album, Its the Beautiful hairstyles which are of African heritage.

Here are 12 beautiful hairstyles from Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ album to inspire your next hairdo;

#1. Amandla Stenberg’s Undefined Fro, Zendaya Coleman’s Cornrows and Chloe and Hailey’s Locs
