Two young women wearing garments of gentle blues and lavenders relax at home, while one arranges the other’s hair. The stylized background hints at the Rwandan landscape, known as “The Land of a Thousand Hills.” The plaiting (or braiding) of hair is a pan-African tradition that dates as far back as ancient Egypt. In Rwanda and throughout Africa, it is as much a social activity as a beauty treatment that cements the bonds of friendship among women.
