They are the largest minority ethnic group in the world and are spread over a number of countries all over Africa. They are situated mainly in West Africa, Central Africa (the North) and Sudan. 

The Fulani's are one of the most widely spread and most culturally diverse groups in Africa. They have a very unique culture, from their clothing, music, language, lifestyle and HAIR!  

The Fulani women and girls often wear braids in very unique styles. The women view braiding as an art form and social activity that is popular in every Fulani household. It has become a significant part of their tradition and culture. These braids are often adorned with beads, cowrie shells, amber and silver coins that are attached between braids at the beginning, middle or end of the braids. The silver coins used to adorn the braids are usually old and are passed down from generation to generation. 

A very popular style amongst young Fulani girls are 5 long braids that are hanged or looped on each side.
