Goat hair and mud are used to create the hairstyles of Namibia’s Himba tribeswomen

Never again will you complain about how high maintenance that hair color is. Or, how long it takes to style your hair on a night out. Namibia’s Himba tribeswomen definitely take the crown for the most complex, more incredible hairstyling-and it’s easy to see why. While the men of this tribe wear simple plaits on the back of their heads, the women wear elaborate styles, with hair and straw to create the dreadlocks, and mud. For their beauty routines? A mixture of ground ochre and fat, called ‘otjize’.
