    Since such a hairstyle is unique, there is hardly likely to be a standard expression to describe it. Jul 19, 2020 at 16:13
  • Aren't they braids? Perhaps here, elaborate braids. Jul 19, 2020 at 16:31
  • There are no bamboo trees and we do not "express people". Those are just green dreads. We say; She has dreads or is wearing extensions.
