Jjok-jin-meori by Glimja Jjok-jin-meori by Glimja
This hairstyle is called "Jjok-jin-meori" or "Jjok-meori"
(Meori means the hair).

It is the basic style for married women,
which means to make "Jjok" on their head.

And the style of head dress for women had been changing with the times.
(ex. Gache, Cheobji)

question: i think this hair style is still worn to this day, am i wrong? . also, it was for married women only, but if it is still worn to this day, then, is it still only for married women? .. by the way ,, love your traditional clothing art works! so informative!

Sorry to reply late :)
Yes, you're right. Not a few women make this hairstyle today.

But they just wear this for
1. special days like wedding (of themselves or family) , baby's first birthday, holidays like Chuseok, New Year's Day....)
2. when they're old women
3. just fashion. - In this case, it's not important if they're married or not, they use a wig or not. But still many people think wearing Jjok = She is married :)
