In Medieval times, the support that holds or covers the hair was called a CAUL. In 19c., the support was called a net, sometimes SNOOD, and consisted of a net-like bag at the back of the head that held the hair or wig. In 1930, Schiaparelli designed a small fur toque to which a chenille net was attached in back to hold the hair ( SNOOD ).
A snood is a type of headgear, worn by women over their long hair. It resembles a closefitting hood worn over the back of the head. The band covers the forehead or crown of the head, goes behind the ears and under the nape of the neck.
