by Roy Sieber (Editor), Frank Herreman (Editor)
Book Description: In the West, hairstyle choices range from the purely functional to the complex fashion statement. In the African continent their significance is far greater.

In some cultures hair itself is used as a potent substabce with supernatural power.
