Nigerian music star, Yemi Alade, who was recently nominated alongside six other African artists for the 2016 BET Awards and is currently working the circuit in London, was spotted looking luscious last week, and wowing us with her beauty.
Dressed in a causal pair of jeans and an Ankara blouse, paired with a tasseled shoulder bag, the “Johnny” crooner complimented her clothes with vampy red lipstick, full brows and the crowning glory: a puffy, afro pony.
The fantastic hairdo is not the first we’ve loved on the fashionista, who is known to rock extreme kinky styles. However, we at SPICE love the way her high, puffy ponytail highlights Yemi’s facial features, and the contrast between the smooth front and volumnous back, which works for work or play.
Easy-to-do, Afro puffs are a girl’s fastest way to show off her natural hair texture. To recreate a pony like Yemi’s, a comb, hairband and some edge control is really all that’s needed.
But if you’re lacking length, use dry, kinky hair extensions and pull the lengths into a ponytail, or follow the below steps to nailing the look with very short hair that won’t reach a hair band;
