Nomzamo Mbatha, where should we start? From her role as Thandeka on the popular soapie, Isibaya, to hosting the International BET awards, she keeps going from one #BlackGirlMagic moment to another.
Her amazing looks have seen her become the face of many great brands such as Neutrogena. She's also been an ambassador for Puma, Audi and, more recently, she’s partnered with L'oreal Paris SA for the #CurlPride campaign. It’s no secret that 2017 is definitely her year to shine.
On top of all this, her hair never ceases to amaze us. We’ve picked 6 gorgeous hairstyles from your favourite celebrity crush.
We love her high bun and how the strands fall around her face - very classy.
Faux locks are probably the hottest look right now. There's no need for bees wax and years of patience. This look is pretty much instant (except for sitting in the salon chair for a few hours). Throw on gold or silver beads to add more character and personality. Every time she does this look she chooses the right brand. The hair piece has a more textured and natural look. As a result, it's closer to the real thing. All we can say is... we love.Image Source
Up or down, Nomzamo rocks faux locks like the queen she is.
2. Natural African Queen
This all-African queen doesn’t shy away from showing off her natural locks. Whether she straightens it or sets her voluminous afro free, she makes sure we don’t run out of hair inspiration. Thanks, Nomzamo.Image Source
She gives us life with her natural hair poof.
She’s not afraid to show off her afro.
3. Add on a bit of glam
Adding extensions to natural hair to make it appear fuller and longer is the way to go. Make sure you have a good hairstylist to put together this look that Nomzamo pulled off so well. With the right technique and a bit of patience, you’ll be standing out of the crowd with your crown.Image Source
Ain’t no shame with clip ons.
4. We love curls
The great thing about this larger-than-life look is that you don’t need to have long or thick hair to achieve it. You can get it using a weave or wig, whichever is convenient. Depending on your individual style, you can try a curly or wavy one. Nomzamo has tried curly, wavy, short and long versions of the hairstyle and they’ve all looked just perfect on her.
Faux afros are sizzling hot.
5. Headwrap game on point
She already is the queen of afro-fusion inspired outfits. We've seen her rocking them at events like the premiere of Queen of Katwe to name a few. We also adore her colourful head wraps. She pairs them together impeccably with evening dresses and even jeans and white tees. She always finds a way to make it work.

6. Beads, beads, beads!
Colourful beads add instant glam to any outfit and Nomzamo knows this. She’s got us running to our gogos to get our own bead art to wear with our outfits. Here she paired it with a long and straight weave and it works like a charm. Props to her stylist.
From her infectious laugh to her pretty dimples, we love Nomzamo and we’ll keep crushing on her. Which of her hairstyles do you like the most? We want to know:
