Married or single? Look at my hair

The village where hairstyles are a dating code
In Yay Pote Gyi a remote village in central Myanmar you see residents with different hairstyles. It's a tradition they have kept for over 200 years. They signal age and whether they are married or ready to date. But the women say sometimes people will laugh at their unique hairstyles when they go out of town. Filming by Phyo Hein Kyaw
