It’s March, the month where we celebrate women and remind everyone that women rule the world. In this year’s International Women’s Day the chosen theme is #ChooseToChallenge with the idea that a challenged world is an alert world and individually, we’re all responsible for our thoughts and actions. For this reason, we will showcase some of the trendy hairstyles for Kenyan ladies.
As Oprah once said, “We have to make the choice, every single day, to exemplify the truth, the respect, and the grace that we wish for this world.” And it is in this spirit that we take the time to honor trailblazing Kenyan women, many of whom embody Oprah’s words as well as this year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge every day, challenging the status quo while serving as role models to us all.
These women have in the past and are currently responsible for trendsetting firsts and impressive cultural shifts that changed our world for the better. They have made a name for themselves while simultaneously creating a platform for so many more to follow in their footsteps. These women have done all this and so much more, all while looking fabulously themselves.
With that said, join us in celebrating the following wonderful Kenyan women and their fashionable hairstyles we loved them in:
