They wear their hair the same as all other people in the modern USA.

Historically, Comanche men sometimes wore their long hair in two braids wrapped with strips of otter fur and leaving a scalplock at the back (often decorated with a yellow or black feather). Some Comanche men smeared their long black hair with red clay, painting the parting white, red or yellow.

Comanche women wore the hair long and loose, painting the parting red (as did many native women on the Plains and elsewhere).

Did Comanche Indians wear tattoos?

The Comanche made much more use of face and body paint than tattoos, but it is known that some Comanche women tattooed their faces and (less often) their breasts; men tattooed the chest to emphasise battle scars.
