Citizen TV news anchors’ Sh55,000 and Sh45,000 wigs set tongues wagging

By Waweru Titus | August 18th 2018

Have you ever in your life seen any news anchor in Kenya wearing their natural hair while presenting news bulletins?

I can give you Sh100,000 for each screen siren that graces your TV if you are able to name them from the top of your head.

Citizen TV news anchors got Kenyans murmuring after the popular Verushka Wigs posted pictures of Yvonne Okwara and Jacque Maribe rocking the latest wigs in town.

The pictures in our possession show Ms Okwara fitting a wavy wig worth Sh55,000 while her colleague Ms Maribe wearing a Sh45,000 Cambodian hair.

“You make our wig look so gorgeous. You are beautiful inside and outside. It’s always a pleasure fitting you. A hearty congratulation on your new chapter. We love how you carry and direct all your features. Wherever you go we will follow,” Verushka Wigs told Okwara.

An elated Okwara responded warmly referring to the hair as the best in what they do.

Okwara replied: “Oh, thanks guys! Y'all are the best! ????”

Maribe was also thanked for doing business with the hair experts.

“Woo hoo! It was a pleasure fitting you @jacquemaribe Keep shining beautiful! 

Most people assume that women wear wigs and weaves because they do not love or appreciate natural hair.

Experts opine that women wear wigs and weaves to protect natural hair and stress that not every woman in a wig is bald or has bad hair underneath.

Wearing a wig or weave gives natural hair a break from daily maintenance routines that may cause damage and weaken the hair such as heat, breakages and chemicals.
