Ras al-muhmuh

Country: 
Yemen
Nation: 
Yemeni Arabs
Female

The Ras al-muhmuh is not really a headdress, but only part of it. It covers head so that, when worn under a shawl, it could only be seen on the forehead. In this form, the metal pendants hanging on the brows of a woman can be especially good-looking. The Yemeni women of central areas of the country put on this headdress for weddings and any other holidays, and usually the Ras al-muhmuh is combined with giant silver ornaments on ears and neck.
