All store mannequins in stores in Saudi Arabia are headless. When out in public, Saudi women must wear floor length loose-fitting black cloaks called abayas over their normal clothing and cover their heads with scarves called hijab. In advertising, on product packaging, and in magazines, women's faces and skin are often marked out with black markers. It seems to be perfectly all right though for store mannequins to wear sexy clothing and show off their cleavage, arms and legs, even though I feel it sends a confusing mixed message.
