According to Margret Adenya, the corona hairstyle is considered as the cheap alternative to expensive ones.
“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,” said Margaret.
A mother, Mariam Rashid, 26, said “Covid-19 has destroyed the economy, taken our jobs from us, and now money is scarce.
‘I, therefore, decided to have my child’s hair done up like this at an affordable 50 shillings, and she looks good.
“The hairstyle also helps in communicating with the public about the virus,” she added.
