Apart from her unique and sultry voice, singer, Nomcebo Zikode is also known for being able to pull off a short, natural and slick haircut – a style that’s become her signature look.
The South African Music Awards (SAMA) nominee - who has been nominated under the Sofnfree Female Of the Year category - tells us all about her hair journey.
What does your haircare routine consist of?
My haircare routine is very simple and straight to the point. I go to my barber, cut my hair and brush my hair every day to keep it neat. I use hair food to keep it moisturised and healthy.
What's the worst hairstyle you've ever had?
I’m always very careful and cautious about the styles I pick. I try to not be too adventurous, and I keep it simple and short. But I’m honestly inspired by women who are comfortable in whatever hairstyles they choose and who wear their hair beautifully.
What was your favourite hairstyle growing up?
I loved braids. I played around with singles and soft dreads a lot.
What's one of the first childhood memories that comes to mind in your hair journey?
In primary school, we weren’t allowed to have long or relaxed hair. Short hair was the norm, and we would only experiment with hair during school holidays. Getting ready for school would be a mission with all the combing I had to do because I have rich course hair, especially when my mom would help me prep in the morning (laughs). High school was better though because they allowed us to have relaxed hair and various hairstyles. So I’ve always had interesting mornings as a child and getting ready for school.
