Hairstyles – The Bible says A woman’s hair is the crown of her glory.
It is often argued that women look more appealing when their hair is made or well arranged. When a hair looks great, it adds confidence to the carrier and attracts more attention from the male folks.
While picking out a hairstyle, three questions are of utmost importance: will this hairstyle suit my face? Can I afford it? Will my man love it on me? Of all these questions, the third inspired this article.
For every woman in a relationship, the last thing any woman would want is for her man not to like or even notice the hair after making it. Men generally love decent hairstyles, simple, classy, and not too far from been natural. If you want your boyfriend, fiancé or spouse to fall head over heels again with you, then consider rocking any of these ten hairstyles when next you visit a salon.
CORNROWS: This is the closest to a natural hairdo any woman can carry. Cornrow makes one look younger, allows air in, and gives the hair ample time to grow. It is cost and time effective (both in making and in loosening). No Hausa or Fulani man would love to see his wife in a more sophistical hair than cornrows-he sees you just the way you are.
