Hairtyle In Popular American Culture

123 Words1 Page
The traditional hairstyle of the Mohawk, and other tribes of the Iroquois, was to remove the hair from the head by plucking each hair instead of shaving until all that was left was a square of hair on the back crown of the head. The left over hair was shortened so that three short braids of hair were formed, and those braids were decorated with different colors. This true "Mohawk" hairstyle should not be confused with the version in popular American culture. Mohawk men mainly wore cloth pants. Mohawk women wore long skirts with leggings. Men did not originally wear shirts in Mohawk culture, but women often wore a poncho-like tunic called an overdress. Mohawk Indians usually wore leather moccasins on their feet
