You know, I almost always see the pictures of Heian men in hats, but it's really hard to see what their hair look like under it. Any resource on this?

I've seen the loopy hairstyles that seems to be worn mostly by the younger boys, but not the adult men.

In this excerpt from the book Japan Encyclopedia is mention made of hairstyles. John

The kanmuri basically requires a queue of some sort to work properly (it goes up into the sleeve and then a pin holds the hat onto the wearer's head). The tate-eboshi is likewise often shown hanging off the back of the head, which would only be possible if there was pressure from the topknot. I believe that there are some scrolls that depict it, but I would need to look.
