like to change their hair regularly by wearing different styles of wigs.

Many women in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, like to change their hair regularly by wearing different styles of wigs.

These wigs are often stitched onto their real hair by hairdressers using iron needles and black thread in hair salons.

Sometimes customers also wear headgear which is stitched together with the wig and real hair so they are firmly fixed.

For straight hair, hairdressers need to cut the wig into small pieces, and stick them on the customers' scalp.

The popular hairstyle with braids is plaited by wigs and real hair that are connected together.

It takes hours to make such complex hairstyles, but women in Harare usually go to hair salons every two weeks or every month, as long as they can afford it. Little girls can also be seen making such hairstyles with their mothers when they are three or four years old.

It often costs about 20 to 30 U.S. dollars for an adult to change such a hairstyle.
