Irish Travellers or Mincéirí are an indigenous ethnic minority group who have been part of Irish society for centuries. 

Hair is a powerful symbol of individuality and one which is intrinsically linked to identity, ethnicity, culture and gender. 

Traveller/Mincéir women’s hair as a subject of elaboration symbolises a unique form of creative expression and identity.
