The variety of the coiffures is apparent once again in the picture of a woman and child from Biankuma (northern Dan). The woman's high forehead, lined with a braids at each side, between the ear and the cheek.
The child on its mother's arm has short-trimmed hair but also a braid turned forward on top of its head.
