Amasunzu MEMORY

ALMA de LUCE® honors a tradition AMASUNZU, cultural heritage that is identity of a culture something unique, distinct and complete to inspire us in our differences.

Amasunzu is an elaborate hairstyle traditionally worn by Rwandan men and unmarried women, with the hair styled into crests, frequently described as crescent-shaped. The hairstyle indicated social status, and men who did not wear Amasunzu were looked on with suspicion until the 20th century. The style was also worn by unmarried women after the age of 18–20 years, indicating that they are of marriageable age. When warriors wore the style, it symbolized strength and bravery. Worn by women, it usually marked marital status and virginity. Young woman wore it before they were married. After marriage, some women let their hair grow freely.

The Amasunzu traditional hairstyle is hands down one of the most creative ever. Still being worn today, it was and still is a symbol of pride in Rwanda.
