Hopi women - Earth.com

This photo from 1906 shows two Hopi women dressed in their finest clothes. And we know that they weren’t married at the time, as their distinctive hairstyles – known as squash blossoms – were only worn by single female members of the tribe. The ’do wasn’t an easy one to master, either! Squash blossoms were constructed around a wooden frame that was only removed after the hair was perfected.
