Keep It or Cut it Off? Temi Dollface’s Unique Hairstyle at Aquafina ELMN 2015



Temi Dollface at Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria 2015 - Bellanaija - September001 (9)Temi Dollface is not your typical Nigerian music artist. With a signature vintage style when it comes to fashion, and a different sound, she has been dubbed the Janelle Monae of Africa.

So just like Janelle, Temi knows how to make a statement with her hair.

At the Aquafina Elite Model Look Nigeria 2015 grand finale, which took place on Sunday 13th September 2015, Temi stepped out in a lovely hot air balloon print dress paired with orange accessories. But it was her hair that caught our attention.

The singer has been rocking a cropped blonde pixie cut for a while now, but took it to the next level for Sunday’s event. Temi added a same-coloured braid to her pixie cut, which she let dangle as she made her way through the red carpet and hung out with celeb friends.

We are all here for the next level of beauty, but we’re not sure if this look is a yay or nay. So, we are leaving it up to you.

Should she keep the braid or cut it off? See another image below.

      Hey girl,

      I don’t know you (although you are not hard to miss) and I know everyone is entitiled to their opinions, but please tone it down. It doesn’t hurt to be polite and nice. Thank you. Pride goes before a fall and I am someone who is very tolerable of other people (your comments make me cringe 🙁

    “…she has been dubbed the Janelle Monae of Africa.” Must people’s identity be compared to someone’ else? How about, She’s Temi Dollface of Africa?

    …Cut it off!

    It’s not her hair so there’s nothing to cut off.

    Forget the tail behind her, the hair colour is not doing her any favour. She looks pale. And not in a good way!

      I completely agree with you.

      I used to admire Temi for her effortless vintage vibe but now she just tries too hard. And it doesn’t inspire. Her instagram is full of over-posey pictures and uncomfortable looking facial expressions. Temi, your true fans would love to see you in a candid, easy photo once in a while. You know, laughing, hanging out, being normal and not everyday statue things.

      Or perhaps just leave the fashion side of life and go back to making quirky good music?

    Disgusting. Looks creepy… Chop it off!
    But wait o…..did she ask bella naija for their opinion.
