It has become a bizarre norm for celebrities to spend thousands of rands on their hair, but there are those who have opted to keep things nice and simple - oh and affordable too!

The newly crowned Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi drives an important narrative around beauty and representation.

Many, if not most,  see so much of themselves in Zozi. Her minimalistic aesthetic strikes a chord with the regular Joe or Jane on the street.

The man behind Zozibini's iconic TWA(Teeny Weeny Afro) haircut has been unveiled. It's none other than celebrity hairstylist, Jawad Maphoto.

The haircut costs R180, not R30 as it was previously reported. The reputable hairstylist has been working his magic on our golden girl for the last five months.

Speaking to Sowetan, Jawad said the following:

"We use [hair] colours that can intensify such a simple cut. So, it’s the extras that make the cut. You can get the same cut with the guy cutting hair under a bridge but with us, it’s about understanding how to take care of hair."

In regards to the pricing of the haircut, Jawad expressed the following:"

''Sometimes they could be things we add to the haircut that could make it cost more than R180. [It all] depends on the client’s request."

"Someone in Tembisa obviously wouldn’t charge as much as someone based in Sandton, for example. Issues of rent and quality products come into play. The price is justified by a lot of things that we offer and the care we give to our client."
