Women wear elaborate wigs in varying lengths, some reaching just above the waist. They are decorated with gold bands and beads and are braided or curled into tight spirals. The wig covers a shaved head. Headbands have insignias on the front, such as the lotus bud, asp, cobra, sun disk, rosette, or papyrus. The gold vulture headdress resembles the wings and head of a vulture. Decorative striped fabric may cover the wig. Women frequently wear large loop or disk earrings. Some women have perfumed oil cones on top of their wigs.
