Abstract:
In a break from Roman styles, Early Christian women dress the hair simply. Older women part hair and pull it into a bun. For unmarried girls hair is long and loose. Diadems and circlets are small. The bowl cut remains the basic hairstyle for men. Beards and mustaches reappear for the first time since the classical period in Greece.
