The housemistress Taweret lived at about the same time as Hatnefer. Here, Taweret's hair is dressed in a style that was fashionable at Thebes during the early New Kingdom: two large lappets or smaller braids hang in front, with three thicker braids down her back. She also wears a type of simple sheath dress that was common at the time.
