Do Amish women ever wear makeup? —Sara C
Can Amish women wear lavender or red dresses? Or is it just Mennonites that wear those colors? —Debbie M
That all depends on the ordnung of each community. Some wouldn’t even dare think about it, while in others it is a common color choice to wear.
If the Amish are to have their hair covered at all times, how does their hair dry when they wash it? —Claire W
Amish women don’t have to wear a covering while washing or drying their hair.
Do Amish women have any trouble with Migraines or headaches from wearing their hair up all the time? If so, are they allowed to wear it down for health purposes? —Marie P.
I can’t speak for every woman, but I have never heard of anyone who suffered from having their hair pinned up in a nice tight bun.
