A boy in a bowl cut. To the left is a fur hat in the sombrero style, lined in a contrasting color. The doughnut-­shaped brim of the king's hat is made of ermine. On the far left is a roundel.
Abstract:
The bowl cut and pageboy are the most common hairstyles. Normally the face is clean shaven. There are many variations of the five main hat styles: turban, roundel, bag hat, sombrero, and fez. The most popular is the turban, draped from the chaperone. Shaped like a doughnut, the roundel is related to the turban. A long scarf is attached, usually draped under the chin and thrown over a shoulder. The bag hat has a round brim and a soft, full crown.
