But what about the children?

January 17, 2008 § Leave a comment

Al-Sharq al-Awsat reports that braided hair (al-mashaat) is becoming a popular trend among Saudi men, women, and even children. The article claims that braids are the oldest hairstyle in the world. A hairstylist is quoted as saying it’s a unique form of expression and that women are able to keep their hair in braids for periods of up to three months. It’s also a way to prevent hair loss. (I’ve personally heard otherwise.)
