COIFFURE WITH MONO AND RIZOS (SIDE VIEW)

Montehermoso, Cáceres.
The hair is dressed as follows: the hair is divided into three sections by a middle parting and a parting from ear to ear; the back hair is tied with a cord; coils (rizos) are made on either side of the head; the ends of the coils are tied to the rest of the hair; the hair is braided loosely, and the braid is wound into a knot (mono) at the top of the head; the mono is tied through the middle. The women who have little hair use a pad of black sheep’s wool to enlarge the mono.

Montehermoso is a Spanish city in the autonomous region of Extremadura. Montehermoso is located in the province of Cáceres.
