The Tuareg are Berbers who live in the Maghrib. They are sometimes called the "blue people" as the blue indigo dye from their clothing rubs off onto their skin. Men are veiled but women never are.

"Among the Berbers in North Africa and the Tuareq in West Africa, the women do not wear veils but the men do. The Tuareq men wear veils to protect from evil spirits (or desert sand in reality) and start to wear them at the age of 25."
