Famous Haircuts Of Coolio
Coolio’s love for braids is showcased in how loyal he has been to his braids! He almost always has braid hairstyles.
Coolio’s love for braids that literally stood out has been there for a really long time. As you can see at this point, he opted for cornrow braids. Rather than let his braids fall like people usually do, his braids stay up pointedly.
They are not all pointing in the same direction though as they point in an outward direction including the braids on top of his head. This incredible formation is spectacular to see.
The braided mohawk is another one of Coolio’s famous styles. He has hair that is braided on top of his head while the rest of the hair has been buzz-cut.
His hair is braided till the end and rather than fall on the top of his head, the braids stay upwards creating a rather extreme version of the mohawk.
This braided mohawk is refreshing and the braids carry a vibe of their own. The braids on the back of his hair are the only ones that fall on his shoulders.
Pigtails With Multiple Braids
The pigtails with multiple braids are the newest hairstyle of Coolio and it has garnered quite some attention for its eccentric appeal.
Coolio does not let his pigtails go into hiding when he wears a cap or a hat. He ensures there is a hole through which these pigtails can be taken out so that his signature quirky style can be out on display even when he is wearing such accessories.
Sometimes he likes to wear one pigtail by gathering all the individual braids into one.
Steps In Getting Pigtails With Multiple Braids Haircut
If you want the iconic two-braided haircut like Coolio then here is how you can get it at home.
Step 1: Work on clean hair
You want to work on clean hair first so ensure you wash your hair thoroughly with shampoo and condition it. You can do this on dry hair so ensure your hair completely dries before you start cutting your hair.
Step 2: Make two buns
You will be shaving a large portion of your head so make sure the part where you will make the braids is safe.
You can make two buns with hair ties so that your hair is secure. Now cut the remaining hair with scissors first and then use a trimmer to trim the remaining hair.
Step 3: Shave your head
To shave your head, you want to first soften your hair using a shaving gel. Make sure you lather it up well and then use a sharp razor to carefully shave your head.
You want to be gentle and regularly wash your razor for a proper shaving experience. You must fold your ears when shaving near your ears.
Step 4: Make braids and turn them into pigtails
Now you can slowly wash the shaven part of your head and towel dry it. Remove the buns and then make as many individual braids as possible.
Spray each small braid with lots of hair spray and if it is a short length it will stay up. If not, you can use a wire on each braid to ensure each strand stays up.
