Hair Swinging Dancers of Saudi Arabia

It is customary and traditional for many young and old women of Saudi Arabia to have long hair.  Long hair is cherished and a woman wears her mane with pride.  Many Saudi men request that their wives and daughters do not cut their hair.  And Saudi women usually do have magnificant long manes of healthy rich hair that is full of body.  The women also enjoy showing off their full mane of hair usually during ladies gatherings where they try to outdo each other with hair swinging dances.  Sometimes either one girl or several will line up together and swing their hair in a clock like rotation to the beat of the music.


And as we all know, a picture can easily say a thousand words so here is a short video which illustrates the “Arab Hair Dance”
