What is a snood, anyway?

A snood, also known as a caul, is a beautiful headpiece which permits the hair to be displayed in a rich setting of colors, beads, or faux jewels; it might be considered a decorative hybrid between a hat and a hairnet. If the snood is constructed properly almost anyone can wear one; most snoods are one-size-fits-all. They were worn from the Middle Ages all the way into the mid-20th Century, and in some areas seem to be making a fashion comeback today.

Ladies and girls with shorter hair will find a snood gives the illusion of longer hair --the natural spherical shape adds fullness and body. In some eras the back of the snood would be stuffed with artificial hair or other material, giving the illusion of even fuller hair.

Longer-haired ladies will find they add comfort as well as beauty, getting the hair off the neck--especially beneficial at hot weather events. It would be virtually impossible to have too much hair to wear a snood. Lady MacSnood has waist length hair of average thickness which will fit in a standard snood quite nicely. She does offer extra long snoods for ladies with longer or thicker hair.

Snoods are great for bad hair days. You just tuck it in and go. No muss, no fuss and it looks great! My daughter (pictured top) loves to wear hers to school since they stay in well and she doesn't then have to bother with her hair during the school work day. She's even worn them to basketball practice and they stayed in great!

Bun Covers and hair sticks are also available for a different look. The hair sticks work well with a bun cover or without. You might need to add a few hair pins as well to your bun cover depending on the size of the bun and your hair type.
