10+ Hairstyles Every Nigerian Girl Made In Secondary School

Before the days of weaves and braids, secondary school girls in Nigeria had to make really simple hairstyles.

Some schools had a list of styles that they announced at the beginning of every week, and every girl had to comply. The hairdressers usually had their hands full during the weekends. Here are some of the most common hairstyles.

#1 All back

All back is one of the most popular hairstyles and one of the simplest hairstyles. The big girls got to add ‘brush’ to their hair.

#2 Patewo

Patewo means ‘Clap your hands’ in Yoruba and that’s how the hairstyle looks.

#3 Koroba

This hairstyle kind of looks like an upside down Suku. There’s also a variation of this, called Orisabunmi with Suku in the middle of the Koroba.

#4 Ipako Elede (ALL FRONT :D)

This is the reverse of ‘All back’.

#5 Calabar

This was a hairstyle that was reserved for girls with long hair. It was in the form of individual plaits.

#6 Suku

Suku is a really popular style, and it is still quite common today.
