‘Coronavirus Hairstyle’ Booming in Kenya


The style’s growing popularity is in part due to economic hardships linked to virus restrictions and to the goal of spreading awareness that the coronavirus is real.

In a makeshift salon beside a busy road in Kibera, a slum in the heart of the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, 24-year-old hairdresser Sharon Refa has been braiding young girls’ hair into the antennae-like spikes that people call the ‘coronavirus hairstyle.’

She revealed: ‘Some grown-ups don’t believe that the coronavirus is real, but then most young children appear keen to sanitize their hands and wear masks…So many adults do not do this, and that is why we came up with the corona hairstyle.’


‘This hairstyle is much more affordable for people like me who cannot afford to pay for the more expensive hairstyles out there and yet we want our kids to look stylish,’ Andeya said.
