Hair: a lock of hair is rarely found, but a head, &c., is often blazoned as having the hair of a particular tincture, and more frequently the term crined(fr. chevelée) is used. In the case of the arms of HARBOTTLE, however, the locks should more probably be blazoned icicles. See under gouttes. A head proper would naturally have the hair; and if no tincture is named, brown may be used. In one case the head is blazoned bald. See head.
