Women from Izhevsk are possessors of a unique natural appearance and splendid forms. Possessors of red hair that can conquer any man are a personification of naturalness, beauty and harmony with nature. Taking into account statistic data one can say that a woman from Udmurtia (that is how a region of Russia where Izhevsk is located is called) is experienced, smart, looks very good, well-educated, and professional. Every modern girl actively strives to realize herself at work. She is more often married, and up to 40 as a rule has a kid or even two. What concerns appearance, these women are traditionally of middle height, tightly built, and have distinct mongoloid facial features: narrowed eyes, big expressed cheekbones, oval drawn face, usually dark blond hair with gold or red hair. However, it also depends on place of residence – south or north of the region.
The style of a modern woman from Udmurtia is restrained, businesslike. Lately a boom of popularity of business fashion can be seen among women of middle age. Young girls from Izhevsk mostly adhere to two practically opposite styles in clothing. First, lately young girls like high heels and a clothing of a feminine fit that emphasizes a silhouette. That can’t be said about the second half of young representatives of the fair sex. Izhevsk is a real well of adherents of nonconformist youth subcultures. Here are many representatives of hip-hop, rock streams and all modern tendencies in fashion and way of life. Such girls prefer comfortable shoes, loose T-shirts, sweatshirts, jeans and shorts.
Citizens of Izhevsk possess a special, historically formed and especially developed sense of duty, maternity, and an image of a domestic goddess. Despite of violent activity in professional life any girl, even the real business lady in Udmurtia always keeps all traits of a married woman who after coming home from work can bake pasties for a family dinner. However, with all her femininity, domesticity, and unreal kindness a woman from Udmurtia has a very strong character, she is quite rough in business and family relations. These should be a resonance of a long historical period of matriarchy in Udmurtia families.
