There is an excellent article regarding the halachos(Laws) of
women covering their hair on:

http://www.batkol.virtual.co.il/crown.htm

It is by Rav Nachum Sauer, Rosh Kollel of the Yeshiva of
Los Angeles.

Outline:
Crowning Glory
The Halachos of Covering Hair
A Torah obligation
Why women may wear a shaitel (wig)
Why a married woman covers her hair
The laws of covering hair
Who should cover her hair
The obligation of a kallah (bride)
Single women and hair covering
How much hair must be covered
Covering hair in private and in public
Hats
Tichels (scarves)
Shaitels (wigs)

I videotaped a 4-part (over 8 hours) series for the Yeshiva, which
can be purchased (I don't know the price). Call Rabbi Harry
Greenspan for details at:
