How can a visitor distinguish a married from an unmarried himba woman? It's very simple: from their hairstyle. Some pics ago I've shared this pic of a married woman and now it's time to upload this unmarried one.Himba women cover their bodies with a paste made from red ochre, sweet smelling herbs, and butterfat. The paste also helps hold together the braids in their hair.
The difference as you can see, is that unmarried women wear their hair braids over the forehead covering partially their face.
