c. 1490-1580 A.D.
Even in headdresses, the Renaissance was much more individualistic than the Middle Ages had been. Many radically different styles of headdresses were fashionable during the Tudor period in France, England, Flanders and the Netherlands. In general, the more elaborate headdresses were smaller and cut closer the head than previous fashions. The simpler ones were more tailored than the many different varieties of veils favored in earlier fashion trends. Snoods were worn without veils, and many different versions of hoods were seen. Some styles were seen almost exclusively in one area or country, while others were more widespread.
