Dress in Detail.
" The men dress their hair in a variety of ways. The genuine Ulu Ai fashion is to let the back hair grow long and flowing, and to keep the tront either shaved or close cropped. The Ngkasi style is to shave in front and to keep the back hair close cropped, to shave again across the back ot the head but to leave two parallel rows of hair and a tiny lock beneath them in the centre. The Kayan method of dressing the hair is, however, fast becoming the fashion among the dandies of all the tribes, e.g., to permit the back hair to flow to its full length over the shoulders and to grow the front hair over the forehead long enough to form a Grecian fringe. When it is inconvenient to have the back hair streaming over the shoulders, they twist it and tuck it carefully into the turban.'' (Brooke Low.)

clean turban of bright scarlet cloth, neatly wound around the head, with a loose end falling over the left ear. The crown of the head was wholly uncovered, and a profusion of jet black locks fell over the top of the turban." (Brooke.)
