Although in the series the ladies headdresses were predominately tiaras, there were versions of the more historically correct hoods that were worn. Tudor women always wore some kind of head covering such as
hats, coifs and hoods. Hoods, in particular, evolved from the more conservative English Gable to the
introduction of the French hood, back to the Gable and on to a flattened or heart shaped bonnet
from the 1520's through to the 1550's.

HOODS - examples of historical hoods
French Hood
a small hood made on a stiff foundation and worn far back. The front border, fitting close round the head, was curved forward on either side to end over the ears, the hair being exposed above this limit only. The back of the crown was raised into a horseshoe-shaped curve over the head.
Gable Hood or English Hood
so-called because its pointed shape resembled the Gable of a house. Originally a simple pointed hood with decorated side panels called lappets and a veil at the back, over time the gable hood became a complex construct with a box-shaped back and two tube-shaped hanging veils; the hanging veils & lappets could be pinned up in a variety of ways.
Atifet
(flattened or heart shaped bonnet)

Similar to the French hood style but modified with a heart shaped crescent - favoured by Mary Queen of Scots.

HEADDRESSES
Chaplets
Wreaths or garlands of leaves or leaves & flowers worn upon the head, bestowed as a mark of honor or symbol of esteem. Often worn by first-time brides with their hair loose, in token of virginity, and a wreath or chaplet of orange blossoms sometimes enamelled and jewelled was traditional. However, in the series was worn by the royal wives and children for Christmas celebrations. A chaplet can also be wreath of twisted silk or satin made of an ornamental padded roll for any occasion.

Coifs
Linen caps called coifs were worn by all classes under hoods or hats from the Middle Ages to the early 17th century. The coif in one permutation or another, was one of the most common pieces of headwear worn by women, and sometimes by men, throughout the 16th century. It was worn under the heavy and concealing veils and gable hoods of the 1520-1530s, but all that would show of the coif was the front edge.

Hood/Hat Styles from other countries
while England's head wear fell into 3 basic hood styles, other countries had their own versions
eg, German and Lowlands below

The Steuchlein is made up of several layers, the unterhaube or under coif/cap, the wulsthaube or padded cap, and the haube covering (Schleiertuch) which makes up the whole hat known as a steuchlein.

Hats
In Tudor times, mens' and womens' hats were interchangeable. Flat, black and sometimes with a feather and some jewels depending on their status. Coifs would sometimes peak through the front and sides.

I am a hat freak when it comes to the Tudor history. I love the Gabled Hood though most folks think it looks odd. I have an angled jaw line so the Gabled Hood looks better on someone with a more angular face than a rounded one. Anyway I wanted to know what hat/ headdress/ hood do you folks enjoy from the series? Excluding tiaras they are jewelry more than anything.
