Amazon women and girls often groom each other, an important activity both
socially and health wise. Hair styles of Amazonian women vary from tribe
to tribe, with some tribes (such as the Huaorani illustrated above) having long
hair to the Matis and Korubos who generally crop their hair very short.
Some tribes (e.g. Kayapo) shave part of their head, while others (e.g. the
Matsés and Marubo), generally have bangs. Depending upon the tribe,
headbands are also worn by women. However in others, only the men are
permitted to wear headbands.
