Smiling Girl




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.
