What was the fashion of Japan?
By: Mckenna Powers and Heather Bramsleven
During the Medieval era, both men and women in the upper social classes wore their hair in loose curls. Women sometimes fastened gold balls at the end of their hair. The people in the lower classes wore their hair with no decorations and usually shorter, at the chin or even at the shoulders. Noble women would wear flat bonnets that would be covered their hair, or ribbons and gold threads in their hair. Later, bonnets, hats and veils became even more popular when the church tradition commanded that married women had to keep their hair covered. Cone-shaped hats with a veil were also very popular during this era. Women sometimes had their hair styled into what looked like two identical mounds on the both sides of their head.
