Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi says cutting her hair wasn’t a ‘strategy’ to win

Miss SA 2019 Zozibini Tunzi tops trend list since she was crowned over the weekend, but her natural crown has given her another reason to trend more.

It’s assumed by some people that the beauty queen strategized her win by going on low cut.

But according to TshishaLIVE, Zozibini slammed such rumor as she as vied for the crown in 2017 while on long hair and she didn’t win.

She reveals more about the low cut:

When you first entered Miss SA in 2017, you rocked a weave. The second time around, you have your signature fade. What inspired the big chop?

It wasn’t really a strategy for coming back to Miss South Africa. It’s a decision I made two years ago – and it was the best decision I ever made, because it felt so liberating.

Before I cut my hair, I was scared that I would not be beautiful, mainly because of societal standards of what beauty is. When I cut my hair, I realised how amazing it looked – more beautiful than I thought – and so coming into the competition I just remembered the moment when I cut my hair and I thought there is no reason for me to change it.

Who first gave you the big chop?

A guy called J at a barbershop in East London gave me the “big chop”. My mom and three sisters were there. It might sound dramatic but I was like, “I’m going to cut my hair and I’d love for you guys to come,” because it was an emotional thing. It was like a barber date!

Women have been copying your haircut and sharing pictures on social media. How does that make you feel?

Yes, I’ve seen! It makes me feel good because it means I’m doing something positive. One of the things I like to say is “as a Miss South Africa it’s important for people to sort of see a reflection of themselves in you”. For them to post pictures of themselves, loving themselves the way they look 100% makes me feel like I’m on the right path to doing something good.
