The Yao People
The Yao People are a minority group who are also referred to as "The Long Hairs". Yao women only have their hair cut once in their life. This takes place on their 18th Birthday. The hair cut off is saved and used to further decorate their decorative hair styles. The women also gather up any hairs that fall out during brushing and use these as a second supplement to their hair.
