Photographer extraordinaire, Lyra Aoko is super great at two things; capturing moments and people with her camera and rocking the short hair look.

Lyra first rose into the limelight after winning the Samsung Zikistar search in 2011, a singing competition. She would however end up branch off into photography which she says was her true calling. Years later, Lyra has managed to build a name for herself as one of the most talented photographers and creatives in the country.

I must admit though, you cannot mention Lyra without appreciating her many hairstyles and her beauty. Like, what’s not to like about this soft-spoken lady whose hairstyles are forever transitional? One of the styles we totally love on her are her short hairstyles. Lyra changes the look by coloring the hair or changing the haircut design.
