When I was on the island of Freeport in the Bahamas I learned
of a traditional way that the Bahamian people wear their hair.
They braid all of their hair into tiny braids called cornrows and
decorate these braids with colorful beads. These braids last up
to three months. During this time the hair can still be washed.
They like this style because the weather is very warm and the
braids keep the hair away from their face and it is also a very
carefree style.

Where learned: FREEPORT ; Grand Bahamas

Subject headings: ART CRAFT ARCHITECTURE -- Human or animal body
BELIEF -- Body part Senses Hair, on head, mustache, widow's peak
