Medieval Fashion, Hair

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.
