You know you're in Africa when.... part 2

A little herd of My Little Ponies.

Anything looks out of the ordinary?

Check out the middle two ponies...

Styling your hair into tiny little plats is African tradition. You will see little girls with hair in plats, old ladies with hair in plats and also hair extension in little plats.

  1. Wow! I didn't realize that we a tradition! Very cute that it is also showing up on the Ponies:-)

  2. Love this new series you're doing!

  3. this is a great series.

  4. Very cute!! We have a heard of "my little ponies", too..but ours are missing a lot of hair because a certain little 3yo keeps brushing them too hard. ;p

  5. So cute! I can't wait to hear more traditions!

  6. How funny! We have friends from Papa new Guinea and they also do these little plaits (usually with extensions).


So what's on your mind?
