Just curious. Started going to church with my new g/f and noticed during the service all the women cover their hair with a scarf. I have seen in before just never really knew why.

It is a symbol of obedience, it is written in the bible in corinthians that women must cover their heads in churches. When you love God and have a special relationship with him you no longer cover because it is an order , you just do it out of love to obey God.

ANSWER #6 of 7

Its a way of showing they submit to the hierarchy of the Messiah. It is symbolic to show that they are not taking the position of a head in a family/community but that there is a male figure of authority above them. Authority in this sense in NOT bad. It means that when a husband is the head of a woman in a marriage, he claims to take RESPONSIBILITY over her spiritually. It is a beautiful think and not a ticket to play boss but a an important duty.
