A Kenyan woman named on TikTok has been defended after unveiling a unique hairstyle that used chunky shoelaces to braid her hair.
In a video seen by Nairobi News on January 16, 2023, Coretta responded to those who expressed shock and surprise at her hairstyle choice.
“Yes, they give me comfort. I hope you answered – but see it.
I actually draw a line in my hair first and then tie the hair in a knot in a braided line, not a normal crochet, although it’s not crochet like women do at the salon. I love you,” Coretta began.

Many wondered if she was collecting shoelaces to braid into her hair.
Others endorsed her quirky hairstyle, saying that if it had been a foreign celebrity who had spotted it in the first place, people wouldn’t have ridiculed or bashed her. It would have been a hairstyle.
“It’s so true. We never thank ourselves. Let’s learn to be grateful,” Coletta added.

She also answered some interesting questions about how she sourced her shoelaces, how many she got, and how much it cost to complete her hairstyle.
“You can’t know what’s right for your hair. All I know is that I went there and bought one pack at a wholesaler of 100 pairs to 200 strands, and that was enough.” Having had my hair cut, I may have had enough hair left over half my head.
So, if you have enough hair on your head, you should get 400 strands. This is a hairstyle only for those who have a haircut. The laces are not heavy, but I can only imagine them if you wear them on your head. It will be a little difficult if you don’t try.
