Hutterite hair

I was looking at a photo essay of the Rocky View Hutterite Colony and it's got me breaking the tenth commandment. Hutterite girls have the best hair and I'm totally coveting it! (The women might have nice hair too but it's hidden under a scarf.) They have these beautiful, tight, elaborate braids, starting at the front centre of the hairline and moving down and back. The girls have their hair washed and braided one a week. This would suit me since hair-washing is a taxing activity that I do only when necessary (when I start to resemble Ethan Hawke in "Reality Bites".) But whenever I try to French-braid my hair it ends up looking all loose and messy. I don't suppose I would be tolerated on the colony.
