In the 16th and 17th century hair taping was a great way of securing hair underneath the coif.
This involves plaiting a length of tape into two hair braids, leaving long tails of tape at the end of each braid, then wrapping it around the head crossing the braids over. The tails can be then wrapped over the braids , this is done by sewing the tape into the hair and around the braids using a bodkin.

The great thing about hair taping is that your coif stays on more securely removing the need for pins.
By placing your hair in the braids it can last for the entire weekend without needing to be removed. They also help keep your hair fresher for long and smoke free when covered by a coif.
