The Zemba people is also known as Zimba or Dhimba people. The Zemba speak their own language (Otjizemba) and live only in some parts of Kunene region. The Zemba women have a very unique black hairstyle. They, like the Himba women, use a clay in their hair, though the colour of a clay is darker. The Zemba women wear traditional dress which includes brightly colored beads. The pure black hairstyle is emphasized with the decorations made of thin beads of white, red, blue and yellow colours.
