The Hamer people are specially known for their remarkable hair style and body decoration. After killing a dangerous animal or enemy, the men are allowed to wear a clay hair bun with some large ostrich feathers. Also famous is the ceremony of the Bull Jumping: young men who have reached the age to marry have to be tested by jumping from one bull to another without falling. If a young man falls, he can try it once more, but when he falls a second time he is beaten by the women and will be an outcast for the rest of his life.
