Plantagenet (14th century): Horizontal Braiding, Gorget.
Gorget – When a wimple is worn without a veil, pinned over hair coils on the side of the head (Fig. 19). Sometimes the coils were braided horizontally (Fig.18). Horizontal Braiding– popular in the mid 14th century, the head would go uncovered, but sometimes a fillet would support the plaits ( Fig. 22).

I literally can only think of Princess Leia
