In the beginning of the 12th century women's hair was as completely
covered as possible. It was covered by a wimple, veil, or both, and it would
be braided into two sections.
The braids would then hang down underneath the veil.
The braids or
sometimes loose hair was also sometimes wound around into buns at the back
of the head.
Medieval women usually let their hair grow to very long lengths, and
often wasn't cut in a lifetime.
