Black long hairs of the Red Yao women are set like a tray on their head all in the day's work. The hairstyle is different. Girls' hair set is wrapped by a coif on which has special signs. Married women's tray-like hair set is some flat. If a woman's hair tray is more with a pellet style, it means that the woman already has sons or daughters.

When a Yao girl is 10 years old, she will leave hair with her all the life. But there is an exception that the girl will cut her hair once at her age of 18. The 'shampoo' which the Yao females use to wash their hair is not really shampoos, and it is made from rice-washing water with something special. It is very good for keeping their hair jet black and beautiful.
