I have never really been a big fan of extreme hair fetishes, but this braiding-your-hair-together business is quite weird and really funny, especially the group of happy hippie girls connected via hair braids. It looks like some spiritual act but is in fact a human sculpture in an art parade.

The quirky romantic pastime of braiding your hair to your partner’s beard is certainly a little weird, however. Or is it some kind of symbolic act which carries a significant ritual of love that I’m just not seeing? Anyone?
