Oh my, we were not ready for this look that Tiwa dished out! She’s just released visuals for her latest single, 49-99 and we can’t help but notice the symbolism in one of her looks- this is the look where her hair is styled in the proper old school way – African threading.
Some images with this look have been trending on social media. In one of the images, Tiwa Savage is sitting and has five ladies standing behind her. All the ladies have an Afrocentric old school look going on, with four of the ladies sporting similar single threading styles, one of them in a cropped hairstyle, while Tiwa is rocking a totally different threading hairstyle (she has to stand out, of course!)
Another other image shows the songstress sitting alone, giving us a chance to take in the details of her hairstyle with its intricate webbing, which is very reminiscent of a hairstyle that was very popular among Secondary school girls back in the day. The fact that their outfits look like school uniforms makes it obvious that the schoolgirl is the look they are going for.
To further complete this look, the makeup artist has kept their makeup quite subtle with very muted earthy tones for their eye looks and even on their lips. She has also defined their eyebrows so that they stand out.
