What comes to your mind when you think about an average oriental woman? Well, probably she’s got dark brown or black hair, dark skin, deep slanted eyes. She is definitely not very tall and has a slender, delicate figure. These common characteristics cannot be applied to all Kazakh women. Ladies from Almaty may have lighter skin and be tall. Some of them have more pronounced cheekbones, which emphasizes the beautiful shape of their eyes.

It is important to mention that women from Almaty don’t use too much of decorative cosmetics, not to mention the plastic surgeries. Nature has given them a very attractive and effective appearance. Kazakh women’s confidence in their beauty is very attractive to men.

Ladies from Almaty are very hospitable. One famous Kazakh proverb says, “if your wife is good, your house will always be full of guests, but if your wife is bad, even a friend will bypass your house.” Therefore, Kazakh girls are being taught hospitality traditions from an early age. They always enjoy having visitors, showing cordiality and know how to create comfort. They also cook very tasty.

Girls from Almaty are also taught to respect the older generation and family traditions. Family always comes first. Many Kazakh women get married at a very young age. Families tend to be large, so girls can have many siblings. Although, in the modern world, this trend got slightly modified. Many girls look at the institution of the family in a more European way and refuse getting married young.

Kazakh people say, “men make houses, women make homes”. Due to the prevailing culture and traditions, girls in Almaty are taught to be submissive, hospitable and humble. They consider men as heads of the family, trust them and rely on their strength and wisdom. At the same time, Almaty is a modern metropolis, which attracts different people and tourists from all over the world. Almaty women learn a lot from them, including the principles of equality and partnership in the family.
