Two days ago, Lola Soneyin, poet and author of The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives, surprised her fans with an announcement on Twitter. She said that having had her classic dreadlocks for nearly two decades, she was ready to switch up her look.

She went on to share some drastically different wig options and asked her fans for their opinions.

Enjoy the dramatic looks of the literary genius (she has some really awesome names for each of them).

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.
