The girlfriend of a young Masai man measures and admires his hair.

Amongst the Masai, warriors are the only members of the community permitted to wear their hair long, which is usually woven into tiny twists that are dressed and styled with animal fat and ocher. Some then use cotton or wool threads to lengthen their hair.

When become elders and go through the Eunoto, their long locks are shaven off.

(East Africa, circa 1967 | Ph: Mirella Ricciardi)
