Hair, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

In Quenya the words for hair are fassë (tangled hair, shaggy lock), findë (lock of hair, a tress or plait of hair), findessë (a person's head of hair), and finë (a hair).

In Sindarin the words for hair are fast (shaggy hair), fing (lock of hair), and finnel (braided hair).
