Breaking tradition with a haircut

MI Qung, a Tibetan graduate now working in Lhasa, capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region, broke with the old tradition of wearing a long pigtail and cut her hair short when she enrolled as a college student five years ago. 

“I think it is convenient to have bobbed hair when busy with school work. After graduation, I changed my hairstyle and short hair suits my features,” Mi said.
