Yesterday one of the years most-anticipated events, the Sun Met, took place in Cape Town. The theme for this year’s function was ‘African Luxury: Visionaries’, and those in attendance fulfilled the dress-code brief… and exceeded it. One area where this was most evident (and had us having to pick our jaws up off the damn floor) was the hair looks. We partnered with TRESemmé to bring you eight standout looks. Prepare yourself!

Braids

What kind of tribute to African Luxury would it have been without an abundance of braids? Many of the guests wore them in various styles and at various lengths, from long twists to a single, long statement braid and even ones adorned with everything from beads to feathers.

Elaborate updos

What would any larney event be without some elegant updos? And what would said elegant updos be without some serious decoration? Gold ribbon, beads, and shells, the Sun Met saw them all at this year’s race.

On-point ponytails

Ariana Grande might think that no one can rock a luscious ponytail like she can, but her signature look would have paled in comparison to the ones that were spotted at the 2020 Sun Met. We are awarding this bubble pony with ‘best in show’.

Locs

Another African hairstyle that was spotted at the Sun Met was locs. Our favourite look featuring them was this snazzy most-up some-down creation, featuring some hanging tendrils, a neat bun, plenty of gold decoration and some expertly-laid edges.

Sleek and shiny

Cool and classy, you can’t go wrong with a sleek, straight look, whether it be a wig or a blowout. Bonus points if it’s a blunt bob with a middle path or long and luxe and topped off with a turban – both of these takes are the perfect combination of modern and timeless, and both are polished AF.
