Youth side lock
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (November 2007)|
A youth side lock was a plaited lock of hair which pre-pubescent ancient Egyptian youths, particularly boys, wore on the side of otherwise shaven heads. References show that boys would stop wearing the side lock once they had been circumcised around the age of fourteen years.
