Christian headcovering

Christian head covering is the veiling of the head by women in a variety of Christian traditions. Some cover only in public worship, while others believe they should cover their heads all the time. Although the head covering was practiced by most Christian women until the latter part of the 20th century, it is now a minority practice among contemporary Christians in the West, though it is still done in other parts of the world, such as Russia, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, and South Korea. The style of the Christian headcovering varies by region.

The practice of headcovering is growing as many are starting to cover for Mass, or worship again. There are groups on some popular networking sites for those who headcover, and some women will sell coverings that range from Amish and Mennonite prayer Kapps, to Catholic mantillas, and even snoods.
