 Hair braiding is an ancient art, handed down from generation to generation in Africa. The origins of the art can be traced as far as 3500BCE. Each region of Africa has its own traditional styles, and each tribe its distinctive aesthetics. In many West African countries, hair braiding developed into complex patterns signaling one`s social status, age groups, and village affiliation.  
 Certain elaborate hair treatments were reserved for ceremonial occasions-weddings and other rites of passage, for example. While braided hair is principally a women`s fashion and art form, in some areas, men create and wear these styles.  
 From very young age, Senegalese girls of Wolof tribe- and other tribes, to that matter- wear their hair styled into braids or knots. Girls first have their hair done by older female relatives-sisters, mothers, grandmothers, cousins, aunts. They learn first by watching, then by doing. A girl just developing these skills will usually practice on her peers or on younger girls, since no one wants to have her hair done by someone younger(and, therefore, less adept)than she. Hair braiding is often an immensely time-consuming activity:some styles can take an entire day or more to create. Among those who have already mastered, there is an informal reciprocity to practice:if someone braids your hair, you are expected to braid hers, in return.  
 In the wake of urbanization and industrialization, hair-brading has in part been turned over to professionals. While the more complex and intricate braid styles may still be found in village settings, salons offering the simpler of the traditional braided styles have become commonplace in Africa`s urban areas. And over the last two decades, braiding salons have also sprung in many urban areas of the United States. Because braiding takes so much time, it offers women an opportunity to socialize together. In Africa, having someone braid your hair is also a sign of the friendship, confidence, intimacy and goodwill you share. In Sophie`s salon in Lemon Grove, CA, the women-braiders and customers alike-talk and laugh together, watch videos, and listen to music, and generally entertain each other during the long hours of brading.
