Until recently jet black hair that hung
down to the knees was considered the epitome of beauty. No
village damsel cared to defy this tradition. The village square
had no hairdressers for the girls did not style their hair.
Only barber salons existed. Times have changed, however. Short
crops are common. Beauty salons have become a rural industry
and often a highly decorated "Buty Palor" can be
seen proudly displaying a fashionable mannequin in the window.
