Celeb-inpired weekend hair ideas!


Whether you’re heading to the salon (it’s payday weekend, after all), or have special weekend plans, take a leaf out of our fave it girls’ look books and try one of these styles:

1. Embrace flower power 

Bonang makes this trend look super cute. Pop on a floral head piece and you’ll immediately feel like you’ve been whisked away to a tropical island.

2. Rock a wrap 

Head wraps are chic and easy – and they can hide a multitude of hair sins. Just grab a pretty scarf and you’ll look as fly as Nandi Mngoma.

3. Try a sexy side sweep 

Date night? If you have long hair, copy Nomzamo Mbatha’s sexy look – the ultimate flirty hair look!

4. Bend your braids 

This is a stunning way to keep your braids out of your neck in this summer heat. Create a cute plait, twist and pin, just like gorgeous Pabi Moloi.

5. Crop it like it’s hot 

Anele got major style props after she cut her hair. If you have a pixie cut, use some pomade to create a playful bed-head look.

6. Be bold and work a bang 

There’s nothing boring about sleek hair and a full fringe – the key’s in using a great hairpiece and pairing it with a bold lip. Take your cue from DJ Zinhle.

7. Go wild 

Texture is so in right now. Dineo Moeketsi shows off her wild side with this Diana Ross-inspired look. Very hot!

8. Power up your plait 

Chomee’s look is super easy to create, but has such impact! Plait a long, fake pony and you’ll look like a million bucks.

9. Band stand 

Planning a casual weekend? Steal Minnie’s topknot bun and headband combination – you’ll look fresh and chic without much effort.

10. Crazy for colour 

Dineo Ranaka’s bright red shade suits her firecracker personality! If you need a hair dare, try a fab new colour!
