    • Hi Cheyenne,

      Most young girls have shaved heads because it is cheap and easy to maintain. When they go to high school sometimes they’ll get braids or a weave…there’s no cultural norm I’m aware of except that it’s just easier for them.

      Thanks for following – good luck preparing for Peru!

      Liz
