Kano - Women in Kano are now forming queues at saloons to have their hair done in preparation for the Sallah festival.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that hundreds of women besiege the saloons in the metropolis daily to have their hair made for the festival.
Malama Lami Abdulhadi, one of the women, who spoke with NAN, said that she joined the queue to fine-tune her hair for the festival.
Hadiza Ali, another customer, said she had tried several saloons but never got a chance because of the crowd around them.
One of the saloon owners, Hauwa Abdulkadir, attributed the rush to the inability of the customers to make their hair in good time.
She also identified the high population in Kano as another factor responsible for the mass turnout.
"People are so many here and the women would always want to come out almost at the same time to plait or perm their hair for Sallah, that is what makes it difficult for us to cope," Hauwa said.
