Cameroon’s first lady Chantal Biya’s fierce looks
The Africa summit has officially ended. One person and her hair couldnt go unnoticed. The first lady of Cameroon and her hair!
Chantal Biya has single-handedly made mullet the new magnificent. Biya’s bouffant is a beauty school master’s thesis in contradictions. Somehow her hair manages to be short and long, rebellious yet elegant, unruly but controlled.
And whether she’s visiting the pope or hanging out with Paris Hilton, the 43-year-old’s signature style remains unfazed. Here we humbly submit just a small sampling of the many coifs of Chantal.
