Hair



This is my narrative and relevant references from the Books where Hair is mentioned.
It is not meant to be anything other than the facts of the matter.
Arrive at your own conclusions.

I wish you well,
Fogaban



This page is a result of me wondering . . . Do women shave their legs and, yes, do they shave other places too, like their armpits and pubes.

There are over 6,000 references to hair . . . or lack thereof. By the time I finished the search, copied out the quotes and formatted this page, I'd invested about 100 hours. I mention this to highlight the expense of time and energy it takes to compile these fun little facts for you.

In any event, I found the answer to my question.

Here are the only four relevant quotes:

In Turia and Ar, it might be mentioned it is not uncommon for a female slave to be depilated.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 105

Most men prefer soft, smooth slaves. Indeed, in the cities, some slaves are even shaved or depilated.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 391

Too, their skirts, and Tupita's, too, and the slave strips, or G-strings, of Tela and myself had been lifted up, or aside, and let fall again, perhaps to see if we were depilated, or shaved, or if such cloth might conceal some defect.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 385

Some masters, too, prefer a smooth slave, and, in such a case, may have the slave depilated, or have her body hair shaved away. Sometimes the master attends to this himself. This is more common in certain cities than in others.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 155

So was the answer yes or no?

Turns out the books suggest that the answer is an "either or".

Either the slave was shaved or depilated . . .

or she was Au Naturale, not shaved at all, hairy.

And when they are shaved, the pubic hair is not ever mentioned as being trimmed or shaved and shaped into designs.

Finally, it is up to the owner whether the slave is shaved or not.



Wait . . .

Who does the shaving?

Does the slave shave her own legs and underarms and pubes?

No, either the master does the shaving or he has is done by someone else.



Wait . . .

What about all the free women?

No, except for her head, there is no mention whatsoever of a free woman shaving . . . anywhere.



While I was researching my shaving question, I also compiled everything else the series mentions about hair.

What I didn't do was quote every single reference to each topic.

I also quoted next to no context. So if you want to read more, get your own book and read the surrounding text.

At the end are a few more lenghty quotes. You can jump to the bottom here

Female
 


Auburn
To The Top

Auburn hair is generally thought to be the most prized hair on Gor, but I myself generally prefer brunets. This is not to deny that blondes, suitably enslaved, and desperate to please, are not without interest. Blondes sometimes bring higher prices as their hair color is rarer, but once they are home, in the collar, they are, of course, no more than any other slave.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Pages 169 - 170

"What is the color of your hair?" he asked, peering at it in the flickering light, in the half darkness.

"Auburn, Master," she said.

"A natural auburn?" he asked.

"Yes, Master," she said. It is not wise for a girl to lie about such things. She may be easily found out. There are penalties, incidentally, for a slaver passing off a girl for an auburn slave when she is not truly so. Auburn hair, as I have indicated, is prized in slave markets.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 44

"What color is your hair?" I asked. "It is hard to tell in this light."

"Auburn," she said.

"A natural auburn?" I asked.

"Of course," she said.

"That color, particularly when natural, often brings an excellent price in slave markets," I said.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 64

I walked slowly behind the Lady Florence. She knelt straight. "Your own hair," I said, "is a rich auburn."

"Yes," she said.

"Such hair," I said, "is very unusual."

"I am fond of my hair," she said.

"You might well be," I said. "Such hair would be the envy of many slave girls."

"You need not speak of it that way," she said.

"Did you know that auburn hair is highly prized in the slave markets?" I asked.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 364

The girl laughed at her and with a toss of her auburn hair, bound in the Koora, ran off between the wagons.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 30




 


Black
To The Top

One in particular I remembered, young, her body like a cheetah, her black hair wild on her brown shoulders, the bangles on her ankles, their sound in the curtained alcove.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 61

A marvelous cascade of hair, as black as the wing of my tarn, loosened behind her, falling to the ground.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 98

a dark-skinned girl with black hair that fell to her ankles from the desert city of Tor
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 195

The judge unpinned her white and gold veil and then, with a gentle hand, brushed back her hood revealing her long, lovely black hair.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 120

She had high cheekbones, and flashing black eyes, and coal-black hair, now worn high, pinned, over her head.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 228

Her hair, a black sheen, loose, fell over her shoulders, and to the small of her back.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 58

Her hair was black, and long, and rich, and well displayed against the yellow cushion behind her.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 196




 


Bluish Black
To The Top

She had extremely dark eyes, and dark hair, even bluish black, which, under the hood of the robes, I could see was drawn back about the sides of her head.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 401




 


Blond
To The Top

Blond hair and blue eyes, too, in this region, made her a rare specimen.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 103

Auburn hair is generally thought to be the most prized hair on Gor, but I myself generally prefer brunets. This is not to deny that blondes, suitably enslaved, and desperate to please, are not without interest. Blondes sometimes bring higher prices as their hair color is rarer, but once they are home, in the collar, they are, of course, no more than any other slave.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Pages 169 - 170

I helped her unbuckle the hood and felt delighted at the sudden flash of her long blond hair streaking out beside my cheek.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 69

Vika regained her composure and straightened herself, tossing her head and brushing back a melody of blond hair which had fallen across her forehead.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 43

Her teeth closed on the meat and she cried out in her throat, a gasp, a tiny cry, glad, inarticulate, uncontrollable, and began to bite at the leg, swiftly, tearing at it, her head to one side, the blond hair falling over my wrist.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 35

Ivar tore the golden string from her hair, loosening it. It fell behind her, blond, below the small of her back.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 116




 


Blondish
To The Top

Almost at my side stood the blondish girl I had first seen, she who had been primarily effectual in my capture, herself acting as the bait, the lure to which I had been drawn.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 16

A tall, blondish girl, some two positions ahead of me and on my left, smiled. "Inge," she said, indicating herself.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 55

Near her, bored, was a slender, blondish girl, looking about. Her hair was hung in a hood of scarlet yarn, bound with filaments of golden wire.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 25

"Radish is now favorite," said Sandal Thong, indicating a blondish, thick-ankled girl at her left. I recognized her.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 196




 


Dark Blondish
To The Top

She looked upon me, but did not seem particularly frightened.

Her gaze was clear; she had a dark blondish hair and blue eyes; her legs were a bit short, and her ankles somewhat thick; her shoulders were a bit wide perhaps, but lovely.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 10




 


Brown
To The Top

Her hair was brown and fine, the splendid gray eyes seemed even more clear, and her face, I saw, was beautiful, even more beautiful than I had imagined.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 55

I noted that her hair was brown and fine,
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 156

She threw back her head, her little nose in the air, her brown hair bouncing on her shoulders.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 81

She was brown-haired, with long brown hair, and brown-eyed.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 393




 


Light Brown
To The Top

She had light-brown hair.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 137

The girl had had light brown hair, it seemed.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 276

She had had light brown hair and had been excellently curved.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 42

Her hair was light brown, much lighter than that of the girl we had encountered to the north, in the Fulvian hills.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 300

The one before us now had long, light brown hair, almost blond. It fell about her body, loosely.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 190




 


Very Dark Brown
To The Top

I am a brunet, with very dark brown hair.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 14

THer hair was a very dark brown.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 180




 


Brunet
To The Top

Auburn hair is generally thought to be the most prized hair on Gor, but I myself generally prefer brunets. This is not to deny that blondes, suitably enslaved, and desperate to please, are not without interest. Blondes sometimes bring higher prices as their hair color is rarer, but once they are home, in the collar, they are, of course, no more than any other slave.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Pages 169 - 170

Goreans, male and female, like most of those of Earth stock, from which they are doubtless derived, or derived for the most part, are brunet types.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 65

Goreans, male and female, like most of those of Earth stock, from which they are doubtless derived, or derived for the most part, are brunet types.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 65

"Yes, Mistress," said a stunning brunet, her face suffused with pleasure, hurrying away from us.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 256

Then he snapped his fingers. Through the door, bearing a tray, came a small, exquisite, brunet female slave.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 347




 


Dark
To The Top

Most Gorean women, like most human females, in general, tend to be short, curvaceous and dark-haired.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 145

"Take me back to Ar," said Talena. "I am ready." She stepped from the pile of filthy garments at her feet and stood proudly among the trees, the wind slightly moving her long dark hair.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 103

The second girl was tall, fragile and willowy, with slender ankles and large, hurt eyes; she had dark, curling hair that fell about her shoulders and stood out against the white of her garment;
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 51

I noted that she had dark hair and dark eyes, brown.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 35

I held her lovely head with its soft dark hair in my hand gazing on her face, her forehead, her dark, soft eyes, with tears, the marvelous, trembling mouth, and set in her fine nose, delicate and lovely, the tiny golden ring.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 280

Near me, across from me, a short girl, with dark hair, very red lips, and bright dark eyes, smiled at me.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 55

She was very beautiful in the bit of slave silk. I noted the bells locked on her left ankle. She was slender, dark-haired, dark-eyed.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 15

The next girl was a comely wench from Tyros, dark-haired and shapely.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 45




 


Very Dark
To The Top

Her hair was short, and very dark.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 65

I recalled lovely Phoebe, of Telnus, so slim, with her very dark hair, her very white skin.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 415




 


Extremely Dark
To The Top

She was fairly complected but had extremely dark hair and dark eyes, very red lips; the movement of her exquisite body was a torment to observe; she looked at me with a slight smile, regarding the black of the tunic, the mark of the dagger; her lips were full and magnificently turned, probably a characteristic bred into her; I had no doubt this black-haired, cruelly beautiful woman was a bred Passion Slave. She was one of the most rawly sensuous creatures on which I had ever looked.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 150

She had extremely dark hair, almost black.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 7

She was slim, and extremely dark-haired, and very white-skinned. Her hair was drawn back behind her head and tied there with a yellow cord.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 121

The young woman was slender, and extremely lightly complexioned, and with extremely dark hair and eyes.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 425




 


Flaxen
To The Top

But afterwards I was intent on visiting the indoor housing area that I might ascertain the condition of a slave, a particular slave, Cecily, once Miss Virginia Cecily Jean Pym, whom I had collared faraway, on a steel world, concealed amongst asteroids, and, on behalf of my friend and colleague, Pertinax, another, the slender, flaxen-haired, blue-eyed slave, Saru, once Miss Margaret Wentworth.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 63




 


Golden
To The Top

She was a blond girl with golden hair that fell behind her to the small of her back. Her eyes were blue.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 186

and a girl with golden hair,
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 229

"For years," said Hassan, "I have heard of the Tatrix or Corcyrus, of her tyranny, of her fabled pride and beauty. I found such a woman intriguing. Then, wonder of wonders, she fell. None could find her. I was curious to know what it would be like to have such a woman in my collar, a fair-skinned, golden-haired Tatrix of the north, to make her crawl, and cry and serve, to make her a man's woman."
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 394




 


Light
To The Top

I smiled. I now had an excellent idea what had happened to the lovely, light-haired slave we had seen earlier on a lower landing, she whose tunic was opened and whose hair had been in such disorder.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 278




 


Red
To The Top

I threw the switch to the red-haired girl. "Keep order in the camp," I said. I turned to Ilene, and pointed to the red-haired girl.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 205

From the side there hastened to him another girl, a fair-skinned, red-haired girl.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 89

Only one other person did I see in the room, red-haired Fina, stripped, lying at the gate to her slave alcove; her left wrist wore a slave bracelet; the matching bracelet was closed, locked, about one of the bars of the alcove.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 275

Toward me a couple was moving, a bearded sailor and a red-haired paga girl.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 344

"Master," said a red-haired girl, reaching forth her hand, timidly, not daring to touch me.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 124

The proprietor of the tavern took the red-haired dancing girl by the arm, she crying out, and thrust her in her costume, ten slender silver chains, five before and five behind, depending from her collar, from the sand.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 57

Her hair was red, and bound back, rather severely, with a ribbon.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 110

He was lifting her sheen of red hair on the point of his lance, moving it in the sun, to see it glisten and reflect the light. He was curious as to such hair. It is extremely rare in the Barrens. Grunt had not permitted her to cut it, or even to trim and shape it. That could be done later. Now he wanted it to grow, and to be, apparently, as long as possible.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 262




 


Reddish Brown
To The Top

Her hair, which was reddish brown, was bound behind her head with a coarse string.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 102




 


Brightly Red
To The Top

Her hair was brightly red and, when she stood, it fell almost to her knees.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 112




 


Very Red
To The Top

She was extremely lightly complexioned and had very red hair.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 61




 


Straw
To The Top

SHer hair was very light, the color of summer straw; it was straight and bound simply behind the back of her neck with a small fillet of white wool.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 33




 


Yellow
To The Top

As I watched her yellow hair swept behind her in the wind and regarded the joyful lineaments of her beauty, I was glad that she had not chosen, whatever might be her reason, to clothe herself in the traditional manner.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 212

The boy walked about her, and took her hair in his hands. "Look," said he to his sister, "silky, fine and yellow, and long." She, too, felt the hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 171

I could see, from the carving, and the pigments, that the girl was figured like myself, and was light-skinned, and had yellow hair and blue eyes.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 330




 


Curly
To The Top

The second girl was tall, fragile and willowy, with slender ankles and large, hurt eyes; she had dark, curling hair that fell about her shoulders and stood out against the white of her garment;
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 51




 


Straight
To The Top

Her hair was very light, the color of summer straw; it was straight and bound simply behind the back of her neck with a small fillet of white wool.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 33

Targo's other girls, of whom I was one, all wore their hair long and combed, straight. I was hoping my hair would grow swiftly. Lana had the longest hair of all of us. It fell below the small of her back.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 90

Her hair was wet and straight, black, damp and matted back from her forehead, on both sides.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 220

Her hair was blond and straight, tied behind her head with a ribbon of blue wool, from the bounding Hurt, died in the blood of the Vosk sorp.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Pages 1 - 2




 


Stringy
To The Top

Her blue eyes were pale. The hair was thin, stringy.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 123




 


Shaved
To The Top

The hair of the below-deck girls, mercifully, is shaved off; indeed, our body hair, too, was shaved off, completely. These precautions prevent, to a great extent, the nesting of ship lice.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 321

My hair had begun to grow out, from having been shaved away for the voyage on the slave ship, but it was still quite short; I wore a broad Koora, which, kerchieflike, covered most of my head.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 329

"It was not a slave ship, I gather," I said, "else it is likely her head and body hair would have been shaved, to reduce the degree of infestation by ship lice in the hold."
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 26

In contrast, regard Tiffany, who has the shorn look. Some men like this in a woman. To be sure, her hair is now growing out a bit. This is to be contrasted again, of course, with the shaven head, commonly inflicted only on a girl as a punishment or to protect her from lice in close confinements, such as on a slave ship.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19        Page 292

I did not doubt that already hundreds of women had passed through the camp, mostly, I supposed, to be shipped or herded to the docks of Brundisium, to be placed on slave ships, chained, their heads and bodies shaved, to be shipped to various destinations.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 380

The major reason for cropping the hair of field slaves, both male and female, and certain other forms of work slaves, is to protect them from parasites. For a similar reason the bodies of the women transported on slave ships are almost always shaved, completely.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 301

All the hair on their bodies is removed, to reduce the infestation of parasites.
Swordsmen of Gor     Book 29     Page 550




 


Sheared
To The Top

He then, holding her hair, sheared it away at the base of her neck.

"Put a string on this and put it in the sack," he said to Barus.

The girl was sobbing.

Kenneth normally did not shear the hair of his stable sluts, even in the fall. He did occasionally use shearing, however, as a disciplinary device. Goreans tend, culturally, to be fond of long hair on a woman. The shorn girl, thus, in her collar, tends to be an object of scorn and ridicule. Girls will go to great lengths to please a man, that they not be shorn. The girls who are regularly shorn are usually slaves who work on the great farms or on the large, commercial hurt ranches, or low girls who are used in large numbers in such places as the mills, or the public laundries and kitchens. Any girl, of course, may be shorn, even a high pleasure slave, if she displeases the master. The girls know that there is always a market for their hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Pages 247 - 248

It was hot and I rubbed my hand back over my head, feeling there the short, bristly stubble of hair. As he had promised, he had, on the first morning of my captivity, sheared me.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 245




 


Removed Completely
To The Top

She wore the brief tunic of purple plastic allotted to female Muls in the nest and save for her eyelashes her hair had been completely removed.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 197





 


Side of Head
To The Top

'Natu' designates corn silk, or the tassel on the maize plant; it can also stand for the hair on the side of the head.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 471




 


Below and Behind the Ear
To The Top

Yet every part of a female body is beautiful to a Gorean, a hand, a wrist, an ankle, the back of a knee, the turn of a thigh, the sweet, soft hair, almost invisible and delicate, below and behind the ear.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 236




 


Back of Neck
To The Top

The small hairs on the back of my neck rose.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 151

I saw the fine hairs on the back of her neck.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 87

The tiny hairs on the back of a girl's neck are very exciting.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 394

I observed the small hairs on the back of her neck, her hair thrown forward, and the steel, with its lock, on her neck, snug.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 96

The heavy black links were obdurate against the small, soft hairs on the back of her slender, lovely neck.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 234

The other guard took her hair in both hands and, by it, pulled her head down, and forward. The back of her neck, with its tiny, fine, golden hair was bared.
Players of Gor     Book 20     Page 15

I felt the edge of the sword at the back of my neck. I felt it above the collar, move against the small hairs on the back of my neck.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 415




 


Forearm
To The Top

I noted the light hair on her forearms.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 108

The hair on my forearms and on the back of my neck rose.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 452




 


Back of Wrist
To The Top

She had tiny, fine hair on the back of her wrists. One could see it, in its golden fineness, extending toward the dark, clasping iron, beneath which it vanished.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 160




 


Thigh
To The Top

I noted that some of the delicate golden hair on her thigh, from the very proximity of the iron, curled and blackened.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 190




 


Hairdresser
To The Top

Some of the ornately barred, crimson-draped cells, with brass bowls, and rugs, and cushions and lamps, were quite comfortable; some of the cells held more than one occupant; some of the girls were permitted cosmetics and slave silk; generally, however, girls in the pen are raw, totally, save for their collars and brands, as are male slaves; the costumer, the perfumer, the hairdresser then does with them what he is instructed;
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 16

Turbus Veminius looked after her. He, like many perfumers, and hairdressers and cosmeticians, treated his female clientele almost as though they were slave girls.

Care of, by Self
To The Top

Her blond hair was cut very short to protect it from the water, even though, in swimming, such girls often wrapped a long broad strap of glazed leather about their head, in a turban of sorts.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 160

She laughed again and disappeared, and I soon heard the sounds of her splashing delightedly in the water. She emerged a few minutes later, having washed her hair and the blue silk gown she wore. Her skin was radiant, the dried mire of the swamp forest at last washed away. She knelt and spread her hair to dry, letting it fall forward over her head and shoulders.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 112

Then she began to comb her long dark hair, kneeling very straight as would a Gorean girl.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 288

I, following the other girls, washed my hair, as well as my body.
. . .

Then the girls were called from the water, to dry their hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Pages 66 - 67

Her hair, long and blond, was loose and combed back.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 164

She combed, with a broad, curved comb of kailiauk horn, her long, dark hair. The comb was yellow.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 310

I threw her a towel that she might wipe her body and long, swirling dark hair, cleaning it.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 355

I had knelt beside the pool and, the rope on my neck, washed my hair.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 247

Tup Ladletender handed me a wide-toothed comb. I began, with long strokes, to straighten my hair.
. . .

"Brush your hair," said Ladletender.

"Yes, Master," I said.

After I had finished, Ladletender retrieved the brush and comb, dropping them in his pouch.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 249

My hair then I washed, and dried, and combed and brushed, taking from it the dust of the road leading to Stones of Turmus, and the sweat of the afternoon and early evening.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 259

The Lady Melpomene slowly, luxuriantly, delighting in its beauty, and well displaying it for me, combed her hair. She used a comb of kailiauk horn.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 223

"The water," I said, "has wrought quite a transformation in you." She was now, substantially, cleaned. Most of the dust and blood, the grime, the dirt and sweat, had been washed away. Her dark hair, wet now, seemed very dark, very shiny. She knelt in the water, removing tangles and snarls from her hair.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 230

Her long, dark hair had already been combed with an antique, yellow, stained comb of kailiauk horn.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 170

Many Gorean masters, incidentally, shape and trim the hair of their own girls. This is less expensive than having it done in a pen. Too, it is pleasant to cut the hair of a girl one owns. She generally kneels, a wrap of rep-cloth about her shoulders, while this is done. Beneath the wrap of rep-cloth, of course, she is naked and in the position of the pleasure slave. When one is through with the cutting it is then convenient to have her.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 198




 


Care of, by Others
To The Top

Elizabeth Cardwell had been cleaned and her hair combed.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 44

The two girls were there, and Aphris was kneeling behind Elizabeth, combing Elizabeth's hair.

Kamchak, as I recalled, had recommended a thousand strokes a day.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 148

Then, two or three other groups of Tuchuk girls straggled in, each leading some wretched wench who had but hours before owned them. These girls they forced to comb their hair and wash their feet before the tables, performing the duties of serving slaves.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 254

These girls they forced to comb their hair and wash their feet before the tables, performing the duties of serving slaves.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 254

A box of combs and brushes was brought. Then the girls, in pairs, began to comb and brush one another's hair. Several vied to comb and brush Lana's hair. I was given a comb.

Timidly I went to Ute. There were tears in my eyes. I could not even speak her language. I could not tell her I was sorry that I had shirked in the harness, trying to let others work for me. I could not even tell her I was desperately unhappy, that I was lonely. I could not tell her that I wanted her, more than anything, to be my friend.

In the stream she had rejected me, turning away from me.

I went to Ute, and she turned and looked at me. Timidly, fearing that she might turn away again, I indicated that I wished to be allowed to comb her hair, if I might, if it might please her for me to do so.

She looked at me, coldly.

Sobbing, I fell to my knees before her, unable to speak to her, and put my head to her feet.

Then she was kneeling before me, and lifted my head. There were tears, too, in her eyes.

"El-in-or," she said, and kissed me.

I wept, and kissed her.

Then she turned, still kneeling, and permitted me to comb her hair. When I had finished, she took the comb, and combed mine.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Pages 68 - 69

I knelt, naked, on the scarlet rug in the tent of the women. I had been washed, and my hair had been combed. The slave girl replaced the glass stopper in a small, ornate bottle of Torian scent. "I shall touch you again," she said, "twice, before you are led forth."

Another girl, one of four near me, besides Ena, again knelt behind me and again began to pass the narrow, purple horn comb through my hair.

"She is combed," said one of the other girls, laughing.

"Aren't you excited," asked the girl combing my hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 280

One of the girls, she with the purple horn comb, combed the hair, arranging it.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 282

After Inge and Rena had finished their work, even to the cleaning of my hair, a guard, summoned, not much pleased, carried me, helpless and in pain, back to the shed for female work slaves.
. . .

After I had done this, naked, and had washed my body and hair thoroughly, I was again given the tunic of a work slave.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 316

They had been permitted to wash themselves, with a bucket of fresh water, and to comb one another's hair.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 37

She was behind him, combing her hair with a comb of horn.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 131

My hair had been washed twice, and combed with care.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 346

"Good," said Tuza. "Much better. Now brush and comb her hair."

Hiza located a brush and comb, and I brushed Darla's hair, and Mila combed it.

Care of, by Master
To The Top

It seemed strange to me to think of such tarnsmen, such brutal, wild men, caring for such a small pleasantry. Too, I had heard, they were fond of combing the hair of their slave girls. Cities and men, I thought, are so strange, so different. I suspected there were few men as fierce and terrible as those of Treve, dreaded throughout Gor, and yet they enjoyed their wine warmed and were fond of so simple a thing as smoothing the hair of a girl.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 274

I found a comb on a nearby vanity. Sheathing my knife and holding her by the back of the neck with my left hand I swiftly, but with some care, combed out her hair.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 404

I sat on the bank, watching her work with her hair. She was now combing it out, with her fingers. She would not yet be entitled, of course, to use the common brush and comb slotted for the use of the coffle. The other girls, unless the masters intervened, would vote on whether or not she was to be granted its use. This is a way of encouraging a new girl to be congenial and to participate equitably in the work. One negative vote will keep the brush and comb from a new girl. The suspension of brush-and-comb privileges is also used, upon occasion, by the first girls as a disciplinary measure, within the coffle.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 231

In a few moments Ginger returned with the comb and brush. "Give her the comb," I said. I, myself, took the brush, which I placed beside me. Ginger waded into the stream and gave the comb to the new girl. "You do not yet have general comb-and-brush privileges," she informed her. "Unless, of course, the masters order it," she added.

"Yes, Mistress," said the new girl, bowing her head to her. Ginger returned to the bank and, somewhat mollified, turned to regard the new girl, who was now combing her hair with the comb of kailiauk horn.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 231

"Come here," I said, "and kneel here." She rose from the water, it dripping from her body, and came and knelt on the grass, on the bank of the small stream, where I had indicated. I took the comb from her and laid it to the side. I then took the brush and, kneeling behind her, began to brush out her hair. It is not unusual for Gorean masters to comb and groom slaves, or ornament them personally, much as they might any animal that they owned.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 237

It is not unusual for a master to care for a slave's hair.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 118

The hair of slaves is usually combed while they are kneeling. Interestingly, masters often comb the hair of their slaves, grooming them. Masters seem to enjoy this, and the slaves, too, tend to relish it, the intimacy and such, though the slave understands that she is being groomed, as her master's animal, much as might be a kaiila or pet sleen.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 433




 


Bells
To The Top

each wore four golden rings on each ankle and each wrist, locked on, which clashed as they walked or moved, adding their sound to the slave bells that had been fixed on their Turian collars, and that hung from their hair;
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 90




 


Flowers
To The Top

About the slave's head was the wreath of blossoms, this of white Lirillium.

It is not unusual for slaves to bedeck themselves as they may, and to do so occasionally with flowers, sometimes a garland, sometimes with a mere blossom or two, fixed in the hair.
Kur of Gor     Book 28     Page 379




 


Glitter
To The Top

Their lips were rouged and they wore eye-shadow. Some glistening red substance had been sprinkled on their hair.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 88




 


Golden String
To The Top

Her hair, red, radiant in the sun, had been braided in the fashion of the red savages. It was tied with golden string.

Pearls

Wound in and about my hair were strands of pearls.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 223




 


Ribbons
To The Top

others had twined a colored ribbon about their hair
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 141

Should she tie her hair with as little as a new ribbon, it must pass his strict inspection.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 76

The scytale had been a marked hair ribbon.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 10

My hair, longer now, though I had worn it long before, was combed back and tied behind my head with a white ribbon.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 75

Her hair was combed back and tied with a white ribbon.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 83

I examined, with wonder and pleasure, the girl who stood before me, her small feet, bare, and trim ankles, her calves and thighs, the delicious curves of her body in the loose, scant silk, the loveliness of her slender throat, locked in its collar, the delicacy and beauty of her features, the loveliness of her eyes, sensitive and vulnerable, and the marvels of her dark hair, grown longer now, tied back with a silk ribbon.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 185

Her long blond hair was tied back with a yellow ribbon.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 226

His hair was bound back with strands of twisted, blue-and-yellow cloth. His caste, even in the town of Kailiauk, was that of the slavers.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 100

Her hair was red, and bound back, rather severely, with a ribbon.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 110

Her braided hair was tied with red cloth.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 28




 


Talenders
To The Top

In their own quarters, unveiled Gorean women, with their family or lovers, might fix talenders in their hair. A crown of talenders was often worn by the girl at the feast celebrating her Free Companionship.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Pages 131 - 132

I looked at the girl. How proudly and yet how marvelously she stood beside me. I saw that she had picked a talender on the hill, and that she had placed it in her hair.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 212

I saw that Thurnock had had her put a flower in her hair, a talender.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 112

The talender is a flower which, in the Gorean mind, is associated with beauty and passion. Free Companions, on the Feast of their Free Companionship, commonly wear a garland of talenders. Sometimes slave girls, having been subdued, but fearing to speak, will fix talenders in their hair, that their master may know that they have at last surrendered themselves to him as helpless love slaves.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Pages 216 - 217

Thura wore talenders in her hair.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 304

Near a piling, small and delicate in the mud, she had found a talender. She bent to pick it up, and fastened it in her hair, for Rim.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 65

Cara straightened up, the talender in her hair. She was quite lovely. I rejoiced for Rim. The talender, fixed in her hair, is a slave girl's wordless confession, which, commonly, she dares not speak, that she cares for her master.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 65

Rim did not even seem to note the tiny, delicate yellow talender in her hair.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 69

What is it to me, if she should, in months, of her own accord, choose to fasten a talender in her hair?"
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 153

"I will tell her," said Marlenus, "when to put a talender in her hair."
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 155

He had won her and conquered her, superbly, even insolently telling her when to place a talender in her hair.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 175




 


Tiara
To The Top

They were nearly to the top of the shoot, when the Lady Bina, now cattle, unclothed, a bell on her neck, a tiara fastened in her blonde hair, saw them.
Kur of Gor     Book 28     Page 415




 


Bandage
To The Top

With her hands and hair she tried to stanch the flow of his blood.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 409

Her hair and hands were covered with blood. She had stopped the bleeding.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 410




 


Catapult Cordage
To The Top

It had been shaved off some weeks ago by the keeper of the Crooked Tarn, to be sold as raw materials for catapult cordage. Women's hair, soft, glossy, silky and resilient, stronger than vegetable fibers and more weather resistant, well woven, is ideal for such a purpose.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 8

Some masters harvest the hair of their slaves every two or three years, understanding this, I suppose, as a part of the productivity of the slave.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 442

Too, woman's hair is excellent for catapult cordage, as it retains its strength and tensility indefinitely, and that under a variety of weather conditions and temperatures.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 328




 


Cover Breasts
To The Top

"Bring your hair forward, over your breasts," he said. "Cover yourselves, as best you can." His commands were translated, rapidly and expertly, by Ginger. The two girls complied immediately. They covered themselves, as they could, with their hair.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 218

She tossed her head, to throw her hair forward, over her breasts.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 280

She had moved her head and her hands for an instant in such a way as to suggest she wished to bring her hair forward, before her, to use it to partially cover her breasts and body, but then she moaned. She could not do so. Her hair, as she had recalled, almost immediately, had been cropped short.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 197




 


Delight of the Hair
To The Top

"What is the sixth delight of the hair of a female slave?" he asked.
Prize of Gor    Book 27     Page 213




 


Desires Sex
To The Top

I regarded her. How beautiful she was! She looked at me. Then, gracefully and decisively, to the music, she unbound her hair.

There was applause for this at the table, the gentle striking of left shoulders, for she had done it well, and the significance of a woman's unbinding her hair before a man is well understood on Gor.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 250

I stood before him. I think that he found me beautiful. I was face-stripped before him. This is very meaningful to Goreans. His eyes shone.

"Let me loosen my hair before you," I whispered.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 295




 


During Sex
To The Top

During the night I had taught her some small things, some techniques, little, simple things, for her mouth and hands, and breasts, her hair, her lips, and feet, and tongue. They might help her, I thought, to survive in Pembe's tavern.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 178

"We were taught to kneel, and to crawl, and to move and walk. We were taught the use of our hands, and of our total body, and our hair, and of our mouth and tongue.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 211

The hair of slave girls, incidentally, unless shaved or shortened as a punishment, is usually worn long. There is more, cosmetically, which can be done with long hair and such hair, too, is often useful in the performance of intimate duties for her master. Too, of course, it can be balled and thrust in her mouth, for use as a gag, either, say, when one does not wish to hear her for a time, or, perhaps, if one wishes, to silence her cries in the throes of her submission spasms. Too, of course, she may be bound with it.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 118

She had been taught uses for various aspects of her body, for example, her tongue and hair.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 64

Much can be done with such hair, not merely with respect to enhancing the beauty of the slave, as it may be arranged variously, but also with respect to its uses in the furs.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 300

Too, she can be bound with it, and she can be taught to use it in the furs to enhance a man's pleasure.
Kur of Gor     Book 28     Page 158




 


During Training
To The Top

"Take your hair from behind your left shoulder," I said, "and hold it before, and against, your lips. Part of the hair keep before your lips and against them. Another part of the hair, the center strands, take back between your lips, so that you can feel it on the soft interior surfaces of your lips. A portion of this same hair take then back against your teeth, and a portion of that back, between the teeth. Now purse your lips and, while remaining kneeling, rise from your heels, and lean forward, gently and submissively."

And thus began the training of a nameless slave on the plains of Gor.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 202




 


Gag
To The Top

"She's a loud one," he said, shamefacedly. Then, with a shrug in my direction, as if to ask my pardon, he went to the girl and took a handful of her long hair. He wadded it into a small, tight ball and suddenly shoved it in her mouth. It immediately expanded, and before she could spit the hair out, he had looped more of her hair about her head and tied it, in such a way as to keep the expanded ball of hair in her mouth. The girl choked silently, trying to spit the ball of hair from her mouth, but of course she could not. It was an old slaver's trick. I knew tarnsmen sometimes silenced their captives in the same way.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 188

She whimpered. Any other sound she might have uttered was stifled by the gag of hair.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 190

The auctioneer took handfuls of her long blond hair, from the right side of her head, rolled it into a ball between his palms, and thrust it in her mouth. She stood there. She knew she must not spit out the hair. She knew she was not then to speak.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 39

Once I had gagged her, with her own hair, and leather.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 282

The hair of slave girls, incidentally, unless shaved or shortened as a punishment, is usually worn long. There is more, cosmetically, which can be done with long hair and such hair, too, is often useful in the performance of intimate duties for her master. Too, of course, it can be balled and thrust in her mouth, for use as a gag, either, say, when one does not wish to hear her for a time, or, perhaps, if one wishes, to silence her cries in the throes of her submission spasms. Too, of course, she may be bound with it.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 118

In moments it was necessary to thrust her hair, balled and wadded, into her mouth, and I put my hand, too, over her mouth. Her eyes were wild. She kicked wildly at the pliant, braided black leather, again and again. Then, mercifully, I unbound her limbs and I let her straighten her trembling body in the blankets. With one finger I pulled the wet hair from her mouth. She was gasping, and shuddering.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 209




 


Handle
To The Top

With both hands I wrenched the veil back from her face, thrusting my hand under it to fasten my fist in her hair and then, as if she were a common tavern girl or camp slut, I dragged the daughter of the Ubar of all Gor to the shelter of the Ka-la-na trees.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Pages 97 - 98

As Kazrak and I watched, the attendant, puffing and furious, emerged from the wagon, dragging Talena by the hair.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 123

I thrust my fist in her hair and she cried out and looked up.
. . .

Vika trembled against me and in my joy with my fist still in her hair I bent my face to hers and kissed her full on those magnificent lips and she cried out helpless in my arms and wept but did not resist.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 59

I seized her by the hair and twisted her head to face me.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 74

At that juncture, as I recall, Elizabeth was kneeling on top of the Turian maiden with her hands in her hair pounding her head up and down in the dirt.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 342

Then, when they had their hands in one another's hair, kicking, the slave girl suddenly stopped, terrified, not seeing the gleaming, narrow band of steel locked on Elizabeth's throat.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 74

With a wrench device each of the cylinders was opened and its occupant drawn forth by the hair and placed on the rocky shelf.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 99

Then he reached into the cage and took her by the hair, twisting it.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 136

I turned a bit to see that Ho-Sorl had a fist in the hair of each, twisting it, pulling their heads back to him.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 221

The auctioneer thrust his hand beneath the hood and, with his fist in her hair, drew her to her knees before the buyers.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 300

She took Claudia's hair in her left hand and held the razor-sharp hook knife at her face.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 317

His hand was in her hair, pulling her head cruelly back.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 326

She turned about, holding her bound wrists to me, that I might unbind them. Instead I took her by the hair and walked her, bent over, beside me, sliding the chain along with us, backward, until I came to a branching in a hall.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 408

By the hair the auctioneer pulled her head up and back so that her features might be observed by the men.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13    Page 36

Some masters like the ponytail hairdo on a slave, which, on Gor, is usually spoken of as the "leash," or "hair leash," for, by it, a girl may be conveniently seized and controlled.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 112




 


Insulation
To The Top

There is no difficulty, of course, in distinguishing between boots of the sort common with white riders and moccasins, the almost universal footwear of the red savages. They are worn even in the winter. In the winter they are often lined, for insulation and warmth, with hair or dried grass.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Pages 84 - 85




 


Kiss Through
To The Top

He then, with his right hand, brushed hair across her face and mouth, and drew her to him, thrusting his lips across the hair to hers.
Hunters of Gor Book 8 Page 168
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Pages 89 - 90




 


Napkin
To The Top

Vika was still crying a bit, but I took her hair and wiped her face and told her to stop her noise.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 196

She took her hair in her right hand and, gently, wiped the grease from my mouth.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 349

I pulled her up to me, and, in the dim light of the alcove, filtering through the red curtain from the slatted grilles in the roof of the main room, wiped her mouth with her hair.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 178

I took a bit of her hair and, gently, wiped her mouth.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 94

When I had finished feeding her I gently dabbed her mouth with her hair, being careful not to disarrange the slave's lipstick with which her sweet, full lips had been adorned.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 180

I extended my fingers to her and she, gently, licked the grease from them. I then dried my hands on her hair, and she knelt back, kneeling on the broad carpeted dais before me, in the position of the pleasure slave.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 181

It is not unusual, incidentally, for slave girls, particularly for those who may not have proved superbly pleasing, as yet, to discover that their hair, even while it is still on them, is expected, like themselves, to serve various lowly, domestic purposes. For example, when a girl, serving at a banquet, hears the command, "Hair," she knows she is to go to the guest and kneel, and lower her head, that her hair may be used as a napkin or wiping cloth, by means of which the free person, either male or female, may remove stains, crumbs or grease from his hands.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 68

"My fingers are greasy," I said. "Yes; Master," she said, and, putting down her head, she began to lick the palms of my hands, as I held them out to her, and then about my hands, and then to run her tongue down between my fingers and the hands, and then, not touching them with her own hands or fingers, carefully and delicately, to kiss and suck my fingers individually. She then extended her head towards me and I dried my hands and fingers on her long blond hair.
Players of Gor     Book 20     Page 291

He gestured to a slave to kneel beside him and put down her head, that he might use her long hair to wipe his hands.
Kur of Gor     Book 28     Page 629

"Napkin!" called a fellow. He had just rinsed his hands in a hand bowl. He now had his hands lifted from the bowl, water falling from them. A slave rushed to him, on whose hair he dried his hands. In conversation, he paid her no attention.
Plunder of Gor     Book 34     Page 400




 


Scrub Brush
To The Top

Similarly a girl's hair, if sufficiently long, may be used for the washing and cleaning of floors. In this she is usually on her hands and knees, and naked and chained. The hair is used in conjunction with the soap and water, in the appropriate buckets, being dipped in, and wrung out, and rinsed, and so on.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Pages 68 - 69




 


Seal
To The Top

Tyrtaios reached within his tunic, and handed a folded paper to the beast with the device, who put the device to one side, near the fire and perused the paper. I saw it only briefly. To me the script, which was cursive, was unintelligible, little more than claw marks, but, affixed to the paper, there were two seals, one which seemed no more than a patch of hair, interwoven with silver thread, and the other was in the script of the Pani, in which they transcribe their Gorean, much as the tribesmen of the Tahari write their Gorean in their own unusual letters, or signs.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 215




 


Show Affection
To The Top

"No," said Kamchak, taking her hair and giving her head a friendly shake, "I would not have sold you for all the gold in Turia."
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 133

Kamchak thrust his fist affectionately into the hair of Aphris of Turia and twisted her head to him.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 333

I put my hand in her hair, and, roughly, affectionately, shook her head.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 459

I put my hand, with rough gentleness, in her hair, holding it.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 164

I felt his hand, roughly, but affectionately, in my hair, as one might hold an animal.
Plunder of Gor     Book 34     Page 364




 


Tied
To The Top

One or two girls I noted lay on the flooring mesh, their heads near the bars separating them from the males, their hair cruelly tied to the bars.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 124

The guard, then, pulling me by the hair, dragged me to one side of the cage. He stood me there, facing the interior of the cage, and took my hair and knotted it about one of the crossbars of the cage, about a foot above my head. He then took Inge to the opposite side of the cage, put her standing against the wall of bars there, facing me, and similarly fastened her in place.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 177

Only standing below this pole, alone on the cart, her skins knotted about her neck, her wrists bound behind her back, her hair fastened over the pole, holding her in place, was a beautiful panther girl, stripped, her weapons, broken, lying at her feet. I recognized her as one of the girls of Verna's band.

I cried out with pleasure.
It was the first of five carts. On each, similarly, wrists bound behind her back, stripped, her hair bound cruelly over a trophy pole, stood a panther girl, each more beautiful than the last.

Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 213

Her hands were tied, by her long black hair, behind the back of her neck. Her hair had been twisted about her throat, knotted, and then, with the two loose strands, thick, themselves twisted, looped about her wrists, her hands had been secured.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Pages 296 - 297

His hand was on her body, and she, writhing, weeping, with her heels, pushing herself, back scraping on the bark, climbed almost a foot up the slanting trunk, before he, through her veil, kissed her, leaving a stain of blood on the silk, and, with his hands, knotted her hair about the trunk of the tree, then leaving her. She was, weeping, on her knees at the tree, trying to undo the knots in her hair which bound her to it, which knots, being on the other side of the trunk, she could not see.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Pages 89 - 90

With my knife I cut a length of her hair, about a foot in length, and crossed and tied together her ankles.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 418

I tied the blond girl by her hair to a slender palm and strode back to the nets.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 397

The hair of slave girls, incidentally, unless shaved or shortened as a punishment, is usually worn long. There is more, cosmetically, which can be done with long hair and such hair, too, is often useful in the performance of intimate duties for her master. Too, of course, it can be balled and thrust in her mouth, for use as a gag, either, say, when one does not wish to hear her for a time, or, perhaps, if one wishes, to silence her cries in the throes of her submission spasms. Too, of course, she may be bound with it.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 118

They were fastened, for the most part, in two different forms of hair ties. In one, the wrists of one woman were bound before her body, lifted and raised, in the hair of the woman before her. Another woman's wrists, then, would be bound in her hair, and so on. Some of these women were coffled in lines, and others in circles, the last woman's hair serving to bind the wrists of the first woman. The other form of hair tie had the hands of a woman tied behind her back to the hair of the woman who, her head lowered, knelt behind her.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 247

If she is naked, she might even be bound with short lengths of her own hair. Two or three horts of hair suffice to tie her thumbs behind her back, and another two or three will suffice to tie her two large toes together.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 326

Each had long hair, and, by the hair, I fastened them together, knotting them, head to head, close to one another.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 78




 


To Sell
To The Top

"Some free women have themselves sheared, to sell their hair," said another.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 254

They make a practice of it, much as they might sell their hair to hair merchants or to the weavers of catapult ropes.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 302




 


Towel
To The Top

The girls were not of the Tahari, and so dried the men's feet with their hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 210

She then returned to where he stood on the sand, talking with men, and, crouching down, or kneeling or standing, as was most efficient at the time, lovingly, kissing him meanwhile, softly and timidly, wiped his body clean of sand and sweat with her long hair.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 113

"Yes," he said. I resisted an impulse to kneel before him, begging to lick the blood from the blade, begging him then to dry it in my hair.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 168

"Girl," said Peisistratus, in English, "the floor is still damp."

She put down her head and, using her hair, dried the floor, as she could.
Kur of Gor     Book 28     Page 158




 


Used to Carry
To The Top

I tied the goblet in her hair and sent her back for more.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 342




 


Wig
To The Top

Most of the hairpieces, and wigs, and such, affected by free women are certified as being from the hair of free women. Most on the other hand, I am reasonably confident, are from the hair of slaves.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 442

Too, there are rumors that some shorn hair, taken from slaves, is used for wigs and falls, for free women. Naturally the hair is certified as having been that of other free women.
Conspirators of Gor     Book 31     Page 207

The wigs of many free women are often from the hair of slaves, though it is certified as having had a free origin.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 328




 


Bondage Knot
To The Top

The bondage knot is a simple looped knot tied in the girl's hair and worn at the side of her right cheek or before her right shoulder.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 27

I took a long set of strands of her dark hair, some inch and a half in thickness. I loosely knotted them at the right side of her cheek.

"The bondage knot," she whispered.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 321

Numbly, slowly, lifting her arms, the blade between her arms, her fingers trembling, she tied the bondage knot in her own hair.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 176

"I would tie the bondage knot in my hair for you," I said.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 299

I then, slowly, gracefully, kneeling before him, looking up at him, tied the bondage knot in my hair, it then hanging beside my right cheek.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 300

Had he been her master, in private compartments, she would not have hesitated to permit such an inadvertence, or she might have tied the loose bondage knot in her hair, on the left, as a mute plea for attention.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 408




 


Bound
To The Top

Her hair was hung in a hood of scarlet yarn, bound with filaments of golden wire.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 25




 


Bound Back - Ponytail
To The Top

Most slave girls wear their hair long and loose, though sometimes it is held back with a headband or tied behind the head with a string or ribbon, in a ponytail.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Pages 137 - 138

Through the opening came a young girl, somewhat younger than myself, with blond hair bound back.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 25

Her hair, which was reddish brown, was bound behind her head with a coarse string.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 102

There was the girl, warm-eyed Linna, who had been kind to me, whose auburn hair was knotted with coarse string, who wore the gray collar of a state slave of Tharna.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 126

Her hair was very light, the color of summer straw; it was straight and bound simply behind the back of her neck with a small fillet of white wool.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 33

the Koora, a strip of red cloth, matching the Curla, is wound about the head, to hold the hair back,
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 30

She wore a brief leather skirt, slit on the right side to allow her the saddle of the kaiila; her leather blouse was sleeveless; attached to her shoulders was a crimson cape; and her wild black hair was bound back by a band of scarlet cloth.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 32

The red band of the Koora bound back her hair.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 278

Both, interestingly, wore long, rather graceful white gowns, and had their hair bound back with bands of white silk.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 114

Her hair was bound back with a bit of purple rep-cloth.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 27

More importantly, about her forehead, tying back her dark hair, was a strip of rep cloth, brown, of the same material as the work tunic. I knew this meant that she had authority among the girls. Ena was high girl in the camp, but I suspected that Ute might be first among the work slaves.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 285

Her hair was bound back with a white woolen fillet. She was beautiful, his slave.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 21

Her hair was blond and straight, tied behind her head with a ribbon of blue wool, from the bounding Hurt, died in the blood of the Vosk sorp.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Pages 1 - 2

Their kirtles of white wool, smudged and stained with grease, fell to their ankles; they hurried about; they were barefoot; their arms, too, were bare; their hair was tied with strings behind their heads, to keep it free from sparks; their faces were, on the whole, dirty, smudged with dirt and grease; they were worked hard;
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 195

Her dark hair was bound back with a yellow, silk talmit.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 253

Samos took from his robes a long, silken ribbon, of the sort with which a slave girl might bind back her hair.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 21

Her hair was held back by a leather band.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 50

I looked down at the red-haired girl. The man in the broad-brimmed hat lifted her hair, displaying it to me. "It is long enough to braid," he said.

"If one wished it," I said. I myself tended to prefer, on the whole, long, loose hair on a slave, tied back, if at all, with a headband or, behind the head, with a cloth or string.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 138

Her body was slim, her hair was long, bound behind the back of her head with the black cord.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 155




 


Bound, Knotted
To The Top

The girl's hair was still bound, knotted, on her head; it had not yet even been loosened, as that of a slave girl.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 42




 


Braided
To The Top

Her hair had been braided and looped over her right shoulder; it was hard in the light to determine its color.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 51

Tuchuk women, unveiled, in their long leather dresses, long hair bound in braids, tended cooking pots hung on tem-wood tripods over dung fires.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 27

She was not as the other women of the Wagon Peoples I had seen, the dour, thin women with braided hair, bending over the cooking pots.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 32

They were stripped and slaves, but, each morning, they would still braid one another's long, blond hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 90

Behind me, swiftly, one of the girls wound my hair into a single braid and then, coiling it, fastened it at the back of my head with four pins.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 281

There were other good looking wenches, too, in the crowd, generally blond girls, as are most of the northern girls, many with braided hair.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 34

Her hair, long, was braided. It was tied with golden string.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 112

The stake in this challenge was the young man's sister, a comely, blond lass of fourteen, with braided hair.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 147

Children, too, I noted, those not in cradles, greased, their hair braided, their bodies and clothing ornamented, in splendid finery, like miniature versions of the adults, some riding, some sitting on the skins stretched between travois poles, participated happily and proudly, or bewilderedly, in this handsome procession.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 26

Her hair, red, radiant in the sun, had been braided in the fashion of the red savages. It was tied with golden string.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 33

Her hair, sometimes braided, was now, as usual, unbraided. She, like most other slave girls, whether of the red savages or not, wore it long and loose. Among the red savages, of course, free women commonly braid their hair. The lack of braiding, thus, usually, draws an additional distinction between the slaves and free women of the red savages.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 69




 


Brushed Back Around the Head
To The Top

The hair of the female state slave of Ar, incidentally, is normally cut rather short and brushed back around the head; the common slave girl, on the other hand, normally has rather long hair, which is unbound.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 394

Their hair, in state fashion, had been cut short, shaped, and combed back around the head.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 396

They were both beautiful, in the gray livery, with their hair brushed back about their heads, with the gray collars, with the matching gray bands with its five simple bells locked about their left ankles.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 400

Her blond hair was lifted from the sides and back of her head by a comb of bone and leather, like an inverted isosceles triangle, the comb fastened by a tiny black ribbon about her neck and another such ribbon about her forehead.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 35




 


Bun
To The Top

Behind me, swiftly, one of the girls wound my hair into a single braid and then, coiling it, fastened it at the back of my head with four pins.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 281

her hair was worn high, wrapped about a comb, matching the brooches, of the horn of kailiauk; the fact that her hair was worn dressed indicated that she stood in companionship;
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 156

Near him, beside the high seat, sat his woman, Bera, her hair worn high on her head, in a kirtle of yellow wool with scarlet cape of the fur of the red sea sleen, and, about her neck, necklaces of gold.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 194

I felt bondage strings on her throat. I did not know if it was Thimble or Thistle. In touching the hair I knew it was not Poalu, whose hair was bound high on her head, in the usual fashion of her people.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 269

This hairdo here, on Crystal, with the bun in the back, is favored by many free women of the scribes. It, too, however, like the upswept hairdo has not been outlawed for slaves. Its apparent severity contrasts nicely with sexiness required of the slave. She may be freed of its severity, and brought into the natural modality of her yielding and submissive femininity, with as little as a single tug, thusly.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 292




 


Bundled and Knotted
To The Top

The girl's hair was still bound, knotted, on her head; it had not yet even been loosened, as that of a slave girl.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 42

I took her hair and put it back, behind her shoulders. In that way it was out of the way. Shackled as she was she would find it difficult to get it back again before her body. If necessary, of course, it could be bundled and knotted at the back of her neck.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 40




 


Dye
To The Top

The usual Gorean position on the matter is that toenails and fingernails are not, say, red by nature and thus should not be made to appear as if they were. They also tend to frown on the dyeing of hair.
. . .

The reservations about hair coloring are particularly acute in commercial situations. One would not wish to buy a girl thinking she was auburn, a rare and muchly prized hair color on Gor, for example, and then discover later that she was, say, blond. Against such fraud, needless to say, the law provides redress. Slavers will take pains in checking out new catches, or acquisitions, to ascertain the natural color of their hair, one of the items one expects to find, along with fingerprints and measurements, and such, on carefully prepared slave papers.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 186

The hair of kajirae who are up for sale, incidentally, is never dyed, or, if dyed, that is made clear to the buyers. A buyer who regards himself as defrauded can be, as I understand it, extremely disagreeable.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 164

I might note, in passing, that in many slave markets, the single, most prized color of hair seems to be auburn. That hair color is highly prized in a kajira. An itinerant vendor, then, if desiring to defraud buyers and raise the price of a kajira, is more likely to have her hair dyed auburn than blond.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 164

Goreans want to know what they are buying. An auction house in Venna was once burned down, she had heard, when it was discovered that it had sold women with dyed hair, especially as the house had not called this to the attention of the buyers. In the courts the owner's claim of inadvertence was viewed skeptically.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 435

I supposed Constantina's hair must be a natural blonde, as Goreans tend to be very strict about such things. Few slavers will try to pass off a girl as being, say, blonde or auburn-haired, if that is not the natural hair color of the slave. In some cases their stock has been confiscated by the city and their establishment burned to the ground. If a girl with dyed hair is brought to Gor her head is normally shaved in the pens, that it may grow back in its natural color.
Swordsmen of Gor     Book 29     Page 48

If a barbarian slave is brought to the markets and she has dyed hair, this is made clear to possible buyers, and is commonly taken as a defect. Sometimes her head is shaved. If it is thought the girl did this of her own will on her own world, dyed her hair or had it dyed, it is taken as evidence of her deceitful and meretricious nature, and, accordingly, the rightfulness of embonding so duplicitous and worthless a creature. Masters, incidentally, take seriously the moral character of their slaves, and commonly regard themselves responsible for its supervision and improvement, by the whip if necessary. Interestingly, to me at least, a slaver who misrepresents merchandise, for example, claiming former high caste for a girl who was actually formerly of low caste, or who tries to pass off a dyed blonde for a natural blonde may be banished and ruined, his goods confiscated, his house burned to the ground. On your world, honesty, truth and such, are obviously of great moment. Still, I have heard rumors that some free women dye their hair. They may do as they wish, of course, for they are free.
Conspirators of Gor     Book 31     Page 136




 


Handkerchief
To The Top

Elizabeth's puttering about, dusting, a cloth about her hair, serving me with these small domesticities, was a sight I relished.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 177




 


High On Head
To The Top

Her glistening black hair was high on her head, and held in place with a long comb.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 66

Her hair was high on her head, and held in place by pins and an ornate comb.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 114




 


High, Coiffured Loosely Over the Head
To The Top

Her dark hair was coiffured loosely and high upon her head. It was bound with a braided yellow cord, strong enough to hold her wrists, should she be bound with it. If the cord were jerked loose the hair would fall, unbound, to the small of her back.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 194

More than fifty slave girls, their hair coiffured high on their heads, clad in sleeveless, classic gowns of white silk, were aligned on the walk nearest the wall containing the iron door, that leading within to the halls of the fortress.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 97




 


High, Pinned Over the Head
To The Top

She had high cheekbones, and flashing black eyes, and coal-black hair, now worn high, pinned, over her head.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 228

Then, still kneeling, she raised her hand, head back, insolently to her hair, to remove from it one of the ornate pins, its head carved from the horn of kailiauk, that bound it.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 229




 


Knot Behind Head
To The Top

"Kneel beside the cistern," I said. "Knot your hair behind your head, that it not drag in the water. The garments must be soaked, and twisted, and kneaded, and beaten on the stone, again and again. One soaks the garments, one beats them. It is not easy work. It is hard work. It takes time. Begin."
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 330

He had a rolled knot of hair at the back of his head, as did Lord Nishida. In this I gathered they shared some status, or station.
Swordsmen of Gor     Book 29     Page 504

Her dark hair was knotted at the back of her neck.
Plunder of Gor     Book 34     Page 443




 


Loose
To The Top

for slave women, among the Wagon Peoples, are not permitted to braid, or otherwise dress their hair; it must be, save for the Koora, worn loose.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 30

Her clothing was stained with dust and her hair hung loose and tangled.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 35

the distinction between the free woman and the slave girl, save that the hair of the latter must needs be unbound;
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 59

He did not permit her, of course, to bind or dress her hair; it must be worn loose; that alone, naturally, was sufficient to mark her slave among the wagons.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 64

Her black hair was quite marvelous, long and unbound, falling as it did over her shoulders;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 250

Her hair, long and blond, was loose and combed back.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 164

The hair of all was unbound.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 199

Their hair was loose, in the fashion of bond-maids.

Her hair was wild, long, loose behind her, behind the thrown-back hood of the burnoose.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 328

Their hair is usually worn long and loosely.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 230

The hair of slave girls is commonly worn long and loose, unbound.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 69




 


Plaited
To The Top

"Brush back your hood," said Samos.

She did so and, putting back her head, drew forth and freed, with both hands, long, golden tresses, which she arranged before her. They were in two plaits, one before each shoulder; they hung almost to her knees.

"Unbind your hair," said Samos.

She unplaited her hair and, with her head down, shook it loose, and smoothed it. She then, again, lifted her head.
Players of Gor     Book 20     Page 14

The leader, who was also blond, with long braided hair, in two plaits, dangling to the small of her back, was the largest of the four women.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 276




 


Shorn Look
To The Top

In contrast, regard Tiffany, who has the shorn look. Some men like this in a woman. To be sure, her hair is now growing out a bit. This is to be contrasted again, of course, with the shaven head, commonly inflicted only on a girl as a punishment or to protect her from lice in close confinements, such as on a slave ship.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 292




 


Slave Flame
To The Top

My hair was longer now, as it had not been cut on Gor, save to trim and shape it. It now fell below my shoulders, and swirled behind me, shaped into the "slave flame."
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 281

"And this cut," said the woman, herself a slave, though permitted a brief tunic, "is called the slave flame. See how it comes down the back, swirling." She illustrated this with a kneeling girl whose hair had been cut, trimmed and shaped in this fashion.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 292

When she had exited the kennel I had seen that the hair, despite its length, had been cut in the "slave flame." That is unusual. The "slave flame" is usually used with medium-length hair, just behind the shoulders.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 492




 


Upswept Fashion
To The Top

"This," she said, moving to the next girl, "is an upswept fashion. It appears sophisticated. It is a hairdo favored by some free women, but it is not outlawed for slaves. Its pretentiousness, suggesting superciliousness and arrogance, contrasts nicely with the actual reality of the slave. The girl who wears this must watch her step, lest the master grow impatient with her. If you are permitted, to wear this hairdo, make certain that you, after an initial resistance, if he permits it, yield to him as a particularly low and helpless girl.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 292

Her master had also ordered her to put up her hair, with combs, in an upswept hairdo.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 692




 


Wrapped in a Towel
To The Top

She entered the water gracefully, her hair bound in a towel, luxuriating in the multicolored foams of beauty.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 313

She gestured and I brought the towel, kissing it, which I then wrapped about her head, that her hair not be dampened.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 389

I then, gently, dried her hair, and wrapped a towel about it.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 217




 


Short
To The Top

A slave girl was brought, a slim girl, in yellow Pleasure Silk, with short black hair, dark eyes, high cheekbones.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 313

Their hair, in state fashion, had been cut short, shaped, and combed back around the head.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 396

At that time my hair was cut short.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 14

Her hair was short, and very dark.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 65

She had dark hair, short but full, which fell about her face.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 137

Her hair had been cut short.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 158




 


Close Cropped
To The Top

"I do not trust men," said another of the Panther Women, Hiza, whose dark hair was cut as closely as that of a metal worker.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 286

(for reference)
My opponent was not Andreas, but a squat, powerful man with short-clipped yellow hair, Kron of Tharna, of the Caste of Metal Workers. His eyes were blue like steel. One ear had been torn from his head.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 113

Mip was a chipper fellow, and a bit dapper considering his caste and his close-cropped hair, for his brown leather was shot with green streaks, and he wore a Tarn Keeper's cap with a greenish tassel; most Tarn Keepers, incidentally, crop their hair short, as do most Metal Workers; work in the tarncots and in training tarns is often hard, sweaty work.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 168



 


Rather Short
To The Top

The girl on the left had her hair cut rather short; the slavers would, in all probability, not permit her to continue to wear her hair in that fashion;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 129

The hair of the female state slave of Ar, incidentally, is normally cut rather short and brushed back around the head; the common slave girl, on the other hand, normally has rather long hair, which is unbound.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 394




 


Quite Short
To The Top

My hair had begun to grow out, from having been shaved away for the voyage on the slave ship, but it was still quite short; I wore a broad Koora, which, kerchieflike, covered most of my head.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 329

Her hair had been cut quite short, probably as a punishment.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 192




 


Very Short
To The Top

Her blond hair was cut very short to protect it from the water, even though, in swimming, such girls often wrapped a long broad strap of glazed leather about their head, in a turban of sorts.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 160




 


Shoulders
To The Top

The second girl was tall, fragile and willowy, with slender ankles and large, hurt eyes; she had dark, curling hair that fell about her shoulders and stood out against the white of her garment;
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 51

her hair had been cut at the shoulders
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 130

Her hair, glistening, fell to her shoulders.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 299

She disengaged the fillet and shook her hair free. It fell about her shoulders.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 33

"Unbind her hair," I said.

He did so, and her hair fell about her shoulders, and there was a cry of pleasure from my men.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 232

Her hair, dark-brown, was of shoulder length.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 141




 


Below Shoulders
To The Top

My hair was longer now, as it had not been cut on Gor, save to trim and shape it. It now fell below my shoulders, and swirled behind me, shaped into the "slave flame."
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 281




 


Halfway Down Back
To The Top

Her hair came half way down her back.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 357




 


Small of Back
To The Top

She was a blond girl with golden hair that fell behind her to the small of her back. Her eyes were blue.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 186

Her hair was dark, and fell to the small of her back;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 7

Her hair was glossy and black, and her master had had her cut it at the small of her back.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 300

Her hair, a black sheen, loose, fell over her shoulders, and to the small of her back.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 58

Her blond hair, unbound, swirled below the small of her back. Her blue eyes regarded me, contemptuously.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 128

He ripped the snood of scarlet yarn from the slender blond girls hair. Her hair, now loose, fell behind her to the small of her back. He then tore away the ribbons and comb of bone and leather that had so intricately held the hair of the larger blond girl, she in black velvet. Her hair was even longer than that of the more slender girl.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 44

Ivar tore the golden string from her hair, loosening it. It fell behind her, blond, below the small of her back.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 116


The hair of both Lola and Tela was long, falling well to the small of their backs.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 69

My hair was now long. It was now below the small of my back. This is not untypical. Many of the others had hair even longer.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 4

Her hair was long and loose. Not even a string had been given to her to dress it. It flowed about her shoulders, and behind her even to the small of her back.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 281




 


Slave Long
To The Top

"Your hair," he said, "is far from slave long, but I have seen many barbarians whose hair, in their first sale, was no longer, or not much longer."

Many masters prefer long hair in a slave, hair which is "slave long," as it is not only lovely but is often useful, as well, in the furs, for delighting and tantalizing a master.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 155

A slave's hair, like every particle of her body, belongs to the master. Most masters prefer hair "slave long" on their properties.
Smugglers of Gor     Book 32     Page 328

"Her hair," I said, "is slave long." Indeed, it fell behind her almost to her ankles. Perhaps it had never been cut.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 301




 


Long
To The Top

I helped her unbuckle the hood and felt delighted at the sudden flash of her long blond hair streaking out beside my cheek.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 69

"Take me back to Ar," said Talena. "I am ready." She stepped from the pile of filthy garments at her feet and stood proudly among the trees, the wind slightly moving her long dark hair.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 103

He looked at her unshaved head and long, beautiful hair with disgust.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 196

Tuchuk women, unveiled, in their long leather dresses, long hair bound in braids, tended cooking pots hung on tem-wood tripods over dung fires.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 27

I had seen her before, of course, as had Kamchak, but it was startling still to see her thus in the firelight, her hair was long and silken black, her eyes dark, the color of her skin tannish.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 160

She wore yellow Pleasure Silk, and, beneath her long black hair, on her throat, I glimpsed a silverish Turian collar.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 220

Each evening five lovely, long-haired, uncollared serving slaves would come to her cell, to bathe her and perfume her, to prepare her for love.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 191

Her black hair was quite marvelous, long and unbound, falling as it did over her shoulders;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 250

At last, sometimes immediately permitted, sometimes not, she had removed the pins from her hair. Her hair was beautiful, rich, long and black. As she knelt, it fell back to her ankles.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 229

They were stripped and slaves, but, each morning, they would still braid one another's long, blond hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 90

Targo's other girls, of whom I was one, all wore their hair long and combed, straight. I was hoping my hair would grow swiftly. Lana had the longest hair of all of us. It fell below the small of her back.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 90

On her throat, half concealed by her long blond hair, was a collar of steel, the steel of Ar.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 149

Her hair, long and blond, was loose and combed back.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 164

There was a long silence, of some Ihn, and then, at a nod from Hura, who threw her long black hair back and lifted her head to the moons, the drum began again its beat.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 197

Her hair was long and dark.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 215

The red-haired girl had thrown Ilene's long dark hair forward, that it not provide any shielding from the switch.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 223

Her hands were tied, by her long black hair, behind the back of her neck. Her hair had been twisted about her throat, knotted, and then, with the two loose strands, thick, themselves twisted, looped about her wrists, her hands had been secured.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 297

she lay on her back; her head was down, her dark hair, long, wild, was in the dirt and reeds,
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 93

Her hair, long, was braided. It was tied with golden string.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 112

She was whimpering with cold, her head hanging down, over Gorm's back; her long hair fell to the back of his knees.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 133

She stood on the thick, rounded block; it was about a yard high, and five feet in diameter; she was dark-haired, long-haired; she had a short, luscious body, thick ankles; her hands were on her hips.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 166

She had a beautiful face, blue eyes, long, loose blond hair.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 201

She wore a long gown, white. She threw back the hood. She shook loose the long, blond hair.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 271

She had long, black hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 19

Most Gorean slave girls have long hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 27

Her eyes were strikingly blue, and bright, lively; her hair, long, blond, streamed behind her.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 99

She had long, dark hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 136

The boy walked about her, and took her hair in his hands. "Look," said he to his sister, "silky, fine and yellow, and long." She, too, felt the hair.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 171

Her hair was black, and long, and rich, and well displayed against the yellow cushion behind her.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 196

The girl who cared for me had long, hair, almost black.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 210

Most slave girls wear their hair long and loose, though sometimes it is held back with a headband or tied behind the head with a string or ribbon, in a ponytail.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Pages 137 - 138

Their hair is usually worn long and loosely.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 230

Her hair was wild, long, loose behind her, behind the thrown-back hood of the burnoose.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 328

I threw her a towel that she might wipe her body and long, swirling dark hair, cleaning it.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 355

She was brown-haired, with long brown hair, and brown-eyed.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 393




 


Very Long
To The Top

Her hair was very long and dark.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 217




 


Waist
To The Top

No man who has seen a woman in Pleasure Silk, or watched her dance, or heard the sound of a belled ankle or watched a woman's hair, unbound, fall to her waist can long live without the possession of such a delicious creature.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 249

Behind him stood a blond slave girl, naked, her hair falling to her waist.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 261

She was dark-haired, incredibly beautiful. Her dark hair swirled behind her to her waist.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 45




 


Knees
To The Top

Her hair was brightly red and, when she stood, it fell almost to her knees.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 112

Whereas long hair is commonly favored in slaves, it is seldom that a slave is brought to the block with ankle-length hair. On the other hand, Gorean free women often have quite long hair, in which they take great pride. It is not unusual that it might reach to the back of their knees.
Swordsmen of Gor     Book 29     Page 121




 


Calves
To The Top

Her long, lovely, blond hair fell behind her, even to her calves.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 440




 


Ankles
To The Top

a dark-skinned girl with black hair that fell to her ankles from the desert city of Tor
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 195

"We have an excellent item from Besnit, blond, whose hair comes to her ankles."
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Page 44

"Her hair," I said, "is slave long." Indeed, it fell behind her almost to her ankles. Perhaps it had never been cut.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 301




 


Never Cut
To The Top

The girl had black hair, swirling and long, beautiful, which had never been cut, and flashing black eyes, high cheekbones.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 182

I looked at her, from her small feet, to her ankles and calves, her sweet thighs, the sweet belly of her, her waist, and marvelous breasts, her shoulders, and arms and hands, her fair throat, chained, her lovely lips, her sensitive, delicate features, her deep, vulnerable eyes, and the marvelous wealth of her dark, cascading hair, perhaps never cut, except for shaping, since she had been brought to Gor.
Guardsman of Gor     Book 16     Page 297

In her hair, which was long, and perhaps had never been cut, wound and curled high on her head, was a tall, jade comb.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 227












Male
 


Black
To The Top

He was an unkempt, strong-looking lad, with cheerful blue eyes and a mop of hair like the mane of a black larl.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 107

His hair, long and black beneath the band of blue and yellow silk, was combed and glossy.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 191

He was a large-wristed strong man with long, black hair.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 86

In a moment, to a thunder of kaiila paws on the turf, racing between the lines of stakes, scattering sand, there came a great number of riders, their black hair swirling behind them,
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 115

"The ugly one?" asked Phyllis. "The one with the black hair and the scar on the side of his face?"
"I do not think he is ugly," I said, "but I think you mean the same one as I. He does have black hair and there is a scar on the side of his face."
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 200

He had long black hair, and gray eyes.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 181

His hair, long and black, did not seem well cared for. It was dirty, not well combed. It was tied behind his head with a band of blue and yellow silk.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Pages 46 - 47

They had long, shaggy black hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 210

He shook his shaggy black hair.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 15

His hair was black and shaggy.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 18




 


Bluish Black
To The Top

His skin was dark, reddish like copper; his hair was bluish black, roughly cropped; his eyes bore the epicanthic fold.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 48




 


Blond
To The Top

The helmet straps, the leather inside, and the blond hair of the soldier were soaked with his blood.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 217

A young man, blondish-haired with blue eyes, unscarred, bumped against the girl's stirrup in the press of the crowd.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 67

the last was a very large man, broad of back and shoulder, bearded and with long blond hair, a Warrior;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 3

There, huddled against the inside of the investing wall, naked, wrapped in a warrior's cloak, near the watch fire, sat the boy. He had been ungagged, and unbound. He looked up at us. He had blond hair, and blue eyes.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 172

I looked at the boy, the blondish hair and the frank, earnest eyes, blue, pleading.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 221

I saw a blond giant from Torvaldsland, with braided hair, in shaggy jacket;
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 41

Most of the men at the thing were free farmers, blond-haired, blue-eyed and proud, men with strong limbs and work-roughened hands; many wore braided hair;
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 142

He had blue eyes, and was blond haired. His hair came to his shoulders.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 172

Of the five contestants I knew well whom I would have first chosen, had I had a choice in such matters, to get his hands on me, a blond, shaggy haired young giant, with freckled wrists, whose hair clung about his shoulders.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Pages 53 - 54

"Where are the merchant tables," I asked a fellow from Torvaldsland, with braided blond hair and shaggy jacket, eating on a roast hock of tarsk, "where the odds on the Kaissa matches are being given?"
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 43




 


Brown
To The Top

Suddenly a small figure burst through the door of the tavern, stumbling and rolling down the stairs, crying out. It bounded to its feet, like a small, hunched animal, with a large head and wild brown hair.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Pages 9 - 10

He was a short man, with close-cropped, brown hair, a squarish face.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 38

He had brown hair, and brown eyes; the hair, long, was tied behind his head with a string of rence cloth.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 16

The Caucasian had shaggy, brown hair and the Oriental had had his head shaved, except for a topknot of black, shiny hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52

His hair was brown, and cut short at the back of his neck. He was smoothly shaven. His jaw was square, his eyes clear.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 258

The hair and eyes of Mirus, as those of most men, were brown.
Prize of Gor     Book 27     Page 180




 


Brown, Flecked with Gray
To The Top

His hair was cut rather short, and was brown, flecked with gray.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 55




 


Brunet
To The Top

Goreans, male and female, like most of those of Earth stock, from which they are doubtless derived, or derived for the most part, are brunet types.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 65




 


Dark
To The Top

The other man with them was a young man, dark-haired and eyed, a simple man-at-arms, perhaps not more than twenty.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 314

His hair was dark and clipped short; his face intelligent, but hard.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 96

He was dark haired, dark eyed, handsome.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 26

Then they forced him again to his knees, and thrust his dark, shaggy head down to the tiles before our sandals.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 12




 


Very Dark
To The Top

The man was tanned, dark-haired, very dark-haired, large, strong. He wore chains. His hands were manacled behind him.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 266

A coppery face poked itself outside the tent. It was a very broad face, with high cheekbones, and very dark, bright eyes, a face framed in cut, blue-black hair, with bangs across the forehead.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 211




 


Gray
To The Top

Centius of Cos, on the other hand, was an older man; no one knew how old; it was said the stabilization serums had not taken their full effect with him until he had seen fifty winters; he was slight and gray-haired;
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 39




 


Red
To The Top

My name is Tarl Cabot. The name is supposed to have been shortened in the fifteenth century from the Italian surname Caboto. As far as I know, however, I have no connection with the Venetian explorer who carried the banner of Henry VII to the New World. Such a connection seems unlikely for a number of reasons, among them the fact that my people were simple tradesmen of Bristol, and uniformly fair-complexioned and topped with a blaze of the most outrageous red hair.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 9

A panel in the wall slid sideways, and a tall red-haired man, somewhere in his late forties, dressed much as I was, stepped through.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 24

To another human, of course, my hair alone, which is a shaggy, bright red, would have been a clearly recognizable feature, but Priest-Kings, as I may have indicated, tend to have extremely casual visual discrimination and are, moreover, I would gather; color blind.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 211

A big red-haired fellow and a smaller dark-haired fellow had bet on which of them would take Slave Beads.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 161




 


Reddish
To The Top

A large man, broad-shouldered, yet lithe, with large hands, a broad face, grayish blue eyes and unruly, shaggy, windswept reddish hair, stood at the rail.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 376

"And who is its captain?" I asked, referring to the man who had spoken with us, the lean, strong, reddish-haired man, so like an animal, clearly of the warriors.

He frightened me.

"That is Bosk, of Port Kar," said one of the girls.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Pages 379 - 380




 


Sandy
To The Top

Out of the robes then popped the sandy-haired head of the scribe, his pale blue eyes twinkling on each side of that sharp needle of a nose.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 36

"Tarl of Ko-ro-ba!" cried a voice, and I saw a small man, thin with a wisp of sandy hair across his forehead, press through the ragged band of rebels that confronted us.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 220

I swept him off his feet and spun him around and the robes flew from his head and Torm of the Caste of Scribes cried aloud in joy and that sandy hair whoofed in the wind
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 302

There were four of us at the wall at this time, myself, lean Lord Nishida, Nishida of Nara, who had commanded at Tarncamp ponderous Lord Okimoto, Okimoto of Asuka, who had commanded at Shipcamp and sandy haired Pertinax, once of Earth, student of Nodachi, swordsman.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 1




 


Straw
To The Top

With a rattle of chains a small man with a wisp of straw-colored hair across his forehead snaked past the others and stood before me.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 160

My hair was no longer now the same. The sea, the wind and the salt, and, I suppose, the changes in my body, as I had matured, and learned with bitterness the nature of the world, and myself, and men, had changed it. It was now, I thought, not much different from that of other men, as I had learned, too, that I was not much different, either, from others. It had turned lighter now, and more straw colored.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 4




 


White
To The Top

He was a dour, hard-bitten man with white hair cropped short.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 192

His eyes were almost covered with a white, shaggy, inverted bowl of hair, matted with twigs and leaves.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 27

His face was pale and lined, and his hair was white.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 31

The slumped figure, that of a small man, naked, white-haired, stinking, skeletal, haggard, covered with sores, awakening, cried out in misery, whimpering.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 275

There, slumped in a marble chair, was an indolent figure, yet indolent as is the satisfied beast of prey. About his left shoulder he wore the knotted ropes of Port Kar; his garment was simple, dark, closely woven; the hood was thrown back revealing a broad, wide head, close-cropped white hair;
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 303

and of the much older, almost legendary master of Cos, gentle, white-haired Centius,
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 148




 


Yellow
To The Top

My opponent was not Andreas, but a squat, powerful man with short-clipped yellow hair, Kron of Tharna, of the Caste of Metal Workers.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 113

I saw that the once close-cropped hair was now a shaggy yellow.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 170

I regret that among them was not the dour, magnificent, yellow-haired Kron of Tharna, of the Caste of Metal Workers, who had been my friend.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 309

It was a large, broad man, with yellow, shaggy hair.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 84

I smiled. Huge, yellow-haired Thurnock, he of the peasants, master of the great bow, wished to play Kaissa with me.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 3

Thurnus was a shaggy haired fellow, with yellow hair, big, broad-shouldered, large-handed, clearly in his bones and body of the peasants.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 135




 


Curly
To The Top

He had bright, dark eyes, and curly black hair. In his ears were rings. His beard, too, was curly and black, even ringleted. In it ribbons were tied.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 354

About at the same time, coming toward us, down the street, following the other party by several yards, was a large, graceful fellow, blond and curly-haired, who was astoundingly handsome, almost unbelievably so.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 11




 


Shaggy
To The Top

I saw that the once close-cropped hair was now a shaggy yellow.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 170

To another human, of course, my hair alone, which is a shaggy, bright red, would have been a clearly recognizable feature, but Priest-Kings, as I may have indicated, tend to have extremely casual visual discrimination and are, moreover, I would gather; color blind.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 211

It was a large, broad man, with yellow, shaggy hair.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 84

They had long, shaggy black hair.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 210

The eyes were darkly fierce, his hair a pelt of shaggy sable.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 263

Save for the strip that had been shaved, his hair was black, and shaggy.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 8

He shook his shaggy black hair.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 15

I noted one of the men of Torvaldsland. He was of incredible stature, perhaps eight feet in height and broad as a bosk. His hair was shaggy.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 38

His hair was black and shaggy.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 18

His eyes were very dark, his hair dark, shaggy, long.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 28

Of the five contestants I knew well whom I would have first chosen, had I had a choice in such matters, to get his hands on me, a blond, shaggy haired young giant, with freckled wrists, whose hair clung about his shoulders.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Pages 53 - 54

A large man, broad-shouldered, yet lithe, with large hands, a broad face, grayish blue eyes and unruly, shaggy, windswept reddish hair, stood at the rail.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 376

The Caucasian had shaggy, brown hair and the Oriental had had his head shaved, except for a topknot of black, shiny hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52




 


Straight
To The Top

"Bejar accepts the proposals of Samos," said a captain, a dark-skinned man with long, straight hair,
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 158




 


Removed Completely
To The Top

"I almost did not recognize him, for the humans in the Nest commonly, both men and women, though not now always, shave themselves completely, in accord with traditional practices of sanitation in the Nest.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 77




 


Sheared
To The Top

His hair was tangled and matted; it had been sheared at the base of his neck.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 84

It was a large, broad man, with yellow, shaggy hair.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 84




 


Shaved
To The Top

The Supreme Initiate was an emaciated, incredibly tall man, with smooth-shaven, bluish, sunken cheeks and wild, prophetic eyes.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 206

In the next flash of lightning I saw the white robes of an Initiate, the shaven head and the sad eyes of one of the Blessed Caste, servants it is said of the Priest-Kings themselves.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 40


She had shaved me as I slept.

I shivered, thinking of the blade and my throat. "Your touch is light," I said.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 34

The Initiates, hundreds of them, knelt in long lines to the crags of the Sardar, to the Priest-Kings. I saw their shaven heads, their faces distraught in the bleak white of their robes, their eyes wide and filled with fear, their bodies trembling in the robes of their caste.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 294

Kutaituchik lifted his head and regarded us; his eyes seemed sleepy; he was bald, save for a black knot of hair that emerged from the back of his shaven skull;
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 43

his head, like that of many merchants, had been shaved;
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 85

The Player, as I have mentioned, was rather old, not extremely old but rather old. His face was pale and lined, and his hair was white. He was smooth shaven.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 31

Ho-Tu was a short, corpulent man, broad-shouldered, stripped to the waist. He had quick black eyes set in a shaven head, the threads of a mustache dangled at the sides of his mouth.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 84

There was also a man in the green of the Caste of Physicians, standing at one side, writing notes on a slip of record paper. He was a large man, smooth-shaven.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 124

Then two guards, gigantic fellows, brawny, stripped to the waist, their heads shaven save for a knot of hair behind the crown, stood behind the barred gate to the cell.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 140

His hair was brown, and cut short at the back of his neck. He was smoothly shaven. His jaw was square, his eyes clear.
Rogue of Gor     Book 15     Page 258

His head was shaven, except for a swirling knot of jet-black hair just behind and below the crown.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 305

Initiates commonly wear white and have their heads shaved.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 279




 


Half-Shaven
To The Top

"You did well," said a man next to me, half-shaven.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 103

There were two others with him, tall, half-shaven, ragged, angular-looking fellows.
Vagabonds of Gor     Book 24     Page 73




 


Unshaven
To The Top

I looked about the room. The men were sleeping. It was dirty and littered. They were unshaven.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Pages 290 - 291




 


Scraped
To The Top

The whiskers had been scraped from his face, probably by the blade of the broad, double-headed wood ax bound on top of the bundle.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 27




 


Shaven Stripe
To The Top

Strangely, a broad swath had been shaven lengthwise on their head. Lana saw this and shrieked out, hooting at them across the water. The men did not even look at us, moving slowly across the current toward Laura.

I looked at Ute.

"That means they are men who were taken by women," said Ute.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 81

They shave the heads of their male slaves in that fashion to humiliate them. And that, too, is the way they sell them, that all the world may know that they fell slave to females, who then sold them."
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 82

The man's head had, some weeks ago, been shaven, a two-and-one-half-inch stripe, running from the forehead to the back of his neck.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 8




 


Style of Myron, the Polemarkos
To The Top

"Did you notice the haircut of that young fellow we just passed?" I asked.

"Yes," he said. "It is done in the style of Myron, the Polemarkos."
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 105




 


Cosian
To The Top

Certain gangs of youths, young ruffians, roamed the streets, affecting Cosian garments and haircuts.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 168




 


Delta Veteran
To The Top

"And, too, interestingly," he said, "it seems that some of those lads who were "Cosians" now wander about under quite different colors, now affecting beards and hair styles reminiscent of those once associated with veterans, hirsute and shabby, returned from the delta."
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Page 213




 


Bowl Cut
To The Top

His eyes were almost covered with a white, shaggy, inverted bowl of hair, matted with twigs and leaves.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 27




 


Sideburns
To The Top

He had long whiskery sideburns which flared merrily from his muffinlike face.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 24




 


Beard
To The Top

Mintar closed his eyes and opened them and pulled on his beard.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 120

Before me, on a rough throne of piled rocks, sat Marlenus, his long hair over his shoulders, his great beard reaching almost to his sword belt.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Pages 153 - 154

I looked upon him with loathing, despising him. How ugly he was, with his fierce beard, the narrow eyes, the ear gone from the right side of his face.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 120

"What do you want for that slave?" asked a captain, a tall man with a small, carefully trimmed beard.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 182

Toward me a couple was moving, a bearded sailor and a red-haired paga girl.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 344

He had bright, dark eyes, and curly black hair. In his ears were rings. His beard, too, was curly and black, even ringleted. In it ribbons were tied.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 354




 


Whiskers
To The Top

The whiskers had been scraped from his face, probably by the blade of the broad, double-headed wood ax bound on top of the bundle.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 27

My host did not speak but led the way with a merry stride, an almost constant curl of smoke from his little round pine encircling his bald pate and muttonchop whiskers and drifting back down the passage.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 27

He wore white robes, stained with wine, swollen with fat, bordered in laced gold. His face was heavy, coarse, pitted where whiskers, one by one, had been pulled from it by tweezers. He was balding, and wore upon his head a crown of grape leaves, from the famed grapes of the terraces of Cos. I sensed in him intelligence, vanity, wealth, cruelty and power.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 335




 


Mustache
To The Top

Ho-Tu was a short, corpulent man, broad-shouldered, stripped to the waist. He had quick black eyes set in a shaven head, the threads of a mustache dangled at the sides of his mouth.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 84

Genserix, broad-shouldered and powerful, in his furs and leather, with his heavy eyebrows, his long, braided blond hair and long, yellow, drooping mustache, looked up from the fire, about which we sat.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 43

He, too, like Genserix, had long, braided hair and a yellow mustache.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 47

He had a mustache, like string, and narrow eyes.
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 212

He had a drooping mustache.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 134




 


Chin
To The Top

A slender straggling wisp of hair dropped languidly from the fat chin.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 120




 


Back of Neck
To The Top

The hair on the back of my neck lifted, short, stiff. I felt cold. I knew, of course, the legends.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 232

The hair on my neck stood on end.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 246

The hair rose on the back of my neck.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 118

The hair rose on the back of my neck.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 286




 


Chest
To The Top

He was bare-chested, and hairy;
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 241

I put my tear-stained cheek against the hardness of his chest, holding, him. I could feel the hair on his chest between his body and the softness of my cheek.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 175

The chest of one was hairy, that of the other was smooth.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52

My eyes met those of one fellow, a large, corpulent man, stripped to the waist, very hairy, with crossed belts running across his chest.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 134




 


Upper Arm
To The Top

I licked at the hair on the upper arm of Tellius. "Please, Master," I begged him.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 312




 


Back of Hand
To The Top

She thrust her lips greedily to the back of his left hand, biting at the hair there.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 85




 


Side of the Leg
To The Top

"No, Master," I said, putting my head down, beginning to kiss him on the side of the leg, deeply, pulling, sucking, at the hair a tiny bit.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 347




 


Calves
To The Top

I delicately put my lips to his calves, feeling the hair beneath my lips, and kissed him.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 71




 


Lack Thereof
To The Top

His back was broad and the muscles of his arms and shoulders were large and powerful. There was little hair on his body.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 305




 


Barbers' Shop
To The Top

An open barbers' shop, with five stools, was to one side. The stools were all occupied. Three fellows were having their hair cut; one was being shaved, with a shaving knife; another was having his beard trimmed.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Page 281




 


Combed and Glossy
To The Top

His hair, long and black beneath the band of blue and yellow silk, was combed and glossy.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 191




 


Oiled, Scented and Combed
To The Top

Near him, in places of honor, at a long, low table, above the bowls of yellow and red salt, on each side, sat many of the high men of Turia, clad in their finest robes, their hair oiled, scented and combed for the banquet.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 253




 


Not
To The Top

His hair, long and black, did not seem well cared for. It was dirty, not well combed. It was tied behind his head with a band of blue and yellow silk.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Pages 46 - 47




 


Feathers
To The Top

Feathers were in their hair, and tied, too, in the silken hair of their beasts.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 286

Feathers, each one significant and meaningful, in the codes of the Kaiila, recounting their deeds and honors, adorned their hair.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 25




 


Ribbons
To The Top

My hair, longer now, though I had worn it long before, was combed back and tied behind my head with a white ribbon.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 75




 


Handle
To The Top

One of the tarnsmen of Marlenus thrust his hand in my hair and forced my lips down to his sandal.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 153

Then the large man with missing teeth seized Hup's hair and pulled up the head, to expose the throat, holding in his right hand a small, thick, curved blade, the hook knife of Ar, used sheathed in the sport of that name, but the knife was not now sheathed.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 12

The girl's hands were in my hair and she yanked my head back.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 18

The girl thrust her hands into my hair and threw back my head.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 26

Suddenly, her hands in my hair, she thrust her lips savagely down on mine
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 38

The kitchen master, in fury, grabbed him by the hair and raised his arm to thrash him.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 220

When the guard removed his hand from the slave's hair, he straightened his back, and regarded us.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 12

The man cried out with rage, trying to struggle to his feet, fighting his chains. The guards, their hands in his hair, forced him back to his knees.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 14

A guard's hand held my hair, keeping my head in place.
Tribesmen of Gor     Book 10     Page 213

I then took him by the hair and thrust the side of his head into the wall. He slumped down, unconscious.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 48





 


Bangs
To The Top

Beside him, to my joy, I saw the impudent features of Andreas, that sweep of black hair almost obliterating his forehead.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 221

A coppery face poked itself outside the tent. It was a very broad face, with high cheekbones, and very dark, bright eyes, a face framed in cut, blue-black hair, with bangs across the forehead.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 211





 


Bound Back - Ponytail
To The Top

The man was stripped to the waist, a brawny fellow wearing buckled leather wrist straps, his hair bound back on his head with a band of gray cloth.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 87

The hair of both was bound back with a band of cloth.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 86

He had brown hair, and brown eyes; the hair, long, was tied behind his head with a string of rence cloth.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 16

Then I saw Lysias, his hair tied behind his neck with the scarlet string, rise.
Raiders of Gor     Book 6     Page 143

Now, behind him, similarly clad in skins, their hair bound back with tawny strips of panther hide, were four or five other men, men doubtless of his band. Some carded bows, two carried spears.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 19

The hair of both men was long; the hair of the man behind was tied back with a narrow piece of folded cloth.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 12

He, too, wore a headband, tying back his blue-black hair.
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 353

My hair, longer now, though I had worn it long before, was combed back and tied behind my head with a white ribbon.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 75

"At a time of such happiness," said a fellow, his long dark hair bound back with a beaded leather talmit, "you need not even be killed for having come to our camp uninvited."
Mercenaries of Gor     Book 21     Page 47





 


Braided
To The Top

I saw a blond giant from Torvaldsland, with braided hair, in shaggy jacket;
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 41

Four huge men of Torvaldsland, in long cloaks, clasped about their necks, heads down, bearded, with braided hair, entered, bearing on their shoulders a platform of crossed spears.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 36

Most of the men at the thing were free farmers, blond-haired, blue-eyed and proud, men with strong limbs and work-roughened hands; many wore braided hair;
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 142

"Where are the merchant tables," I asked a fellow from Torvaldsland, with braided blond hair and shaggy jacket, eating on a roast hock of tarsk, "where the odds on the Kaissa matches are being given?"
Beasts of Gor     Book 12     Page 43

In a few Ehn Cuwignaka, sweating, elated, his braided hair behind him, returned his lathered kaiila to our side.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 8





 


Dye
To The Top

I dyed my hair black and acquired the helmet and gear of an Assassin.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 176

There I dyed my hair black and exchanged the robes of the merchant for the yellow and brown tunic of the Bakers, to which caste her father and two brothers had belonged.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 237

I accompanied him, stopping only long enough to rip away most of the upper portions of the baker's tunic and rinse the dye from my hair in a street fountain.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 249

I had dyed my hair black, I had not been in Ar in several years.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 25





 


Greased
To The Top

Indeed, sometimes a young fellow will have his hair greased and braided, and will dress himself in finery and paint, and simply ride about the camp, parading, in effect, before his fellow villagers, and, in particular, the maidens.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 20

Children, too, I noted, those not in cradles, greased, their hair braided, their bodies and clothing ornamented, in splendid finery, like miniature versions of the adults, some riding, some sitting on the skins stretched between travois poles, participated happily and proudly, or bewilderedly, in this handsome procession.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 26





 


High Pompadour
To The Top

"Do not reach for your weapons," said Grunt. "He is Fleer," he added.

"How do you know?" I asked.

"The hair," said Grunt, "is worn in the high pompadour, combed back."

"Like Corn Stalks," I said. The fellow's hair came down his back, flowing even over the spine of the kaiila. He was riding bareback. He carried a long, feathered lance, and a small, round shield, a war shield, on which were inscribed medicine signs.
Savages of Gor     Book 17     Page 256

The warrior who had spoken was Fleer. This could be told at a glance from the hair, which was worn in a high combed-back pompadour.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 463





 


Oiled
To The Top

Near him, in places of honor, at a long, low table, above the bowls of yellow and red salt, on each side, sat many of the high men of Turia, clad in their finest robes, their hair oiled, scented and combed for the banquet.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 253

The long black hair of each was oiled and combed carefully.
Rebels of Gor     Book 33     Page 564





 


Scented
To The Top

Near him, in places of honor, at a long, low table, above the bowls of yellow and red salt, on each side, sat many of the high men of Turia, clad in their finest robes, their hair oiled, scented and combed for the banquet.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 253





 


Shiny
To The Top

The Caucasian had shaggy, brown hair and the Oriental had had his head shaved, except for a topknot of black, shiny hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52





 


Top Knot
To The Top

He was not bearded, save for the trace of a tiny wisp of hair that marked each side of his chin, almost like a streak of dirt. His hair was long, and bound in a knot behind his head in Mongol fashion.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 60

Two strands of hair still marked his chin in parallel streaks and on the back of his head his long hair was still bound in a Mongol knot.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 231

Kutaituchik lifted his head and regarded us; his eyes seemed sleepy; he was bald, save for a black knot of hair that emerged from the back of his shaven skull;
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 43

The Caucasian had shaggy, brown hair and the Oriental had had his head shaved, except for a topknot of black, shiny hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52

Then two guards, gigantic fellows, brawny, stripped to the waist, their heads shaven save for a knot of hair behind the crown, stood behind the barred gate to the cell.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 140

His head was shaven, except for a swirling knot of jet-black hair just behind and below the crown.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Page 305

The hair of each was drawn behind the head and fastened in a ball or top knot. This was the case with many of the Pani, not all.
Mariners of Gor     Book 30     Page 315





 


Bald
To The Top

His cheeks were red and his head bald.
Priest-Kings of Gor     Book 3     Page 24

His head was totally devoid of hair, even to the lack of eyebrows.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 4





 


Shaved
To The Top

The Caucasian had shaggy, brown hair and the Oriental had had his head shaved, except for a topknot of black, shiny hair.
Fighting Slave of Gor     Book 14     Page 52





 


Wisp
To The Top

With a rattle of chains a small man with a wisp of straw-colored hair across his forehead snaked past the others and stood before me.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 160





 


Close Cropped
To The Top

I saw that the once close-cropped hair was now a shaggy yellow.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 170

He was a short man, with close-cropped, brown hair, a squarish face.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 38

He was short, small, with close-cropped brown hair.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 167

Mip was a chipper fellow, and a bit dapper considering his caste and his close-cropped hair, for his brown leather was shot with green streaks, and he wore a Tarn Keeper's cap with a greenish tassel; most Tarn Keepers, incidentally, crop their hair short, as do most Metal Workers; work in the tarncots and in training tarns is often hard, sweaty work.
Assassin of Gor     Book 5     Page 168

There, slumped in a marble chair, was an indolent figure, yet indolent as is the satisfied beast of prey. About his left shoulder he wore the knotted ropes of Port Kar; his garment was simple, dark, closely woven; the hood was thrown back revealing a broad, wide head, close-cropped white hair;

Men in the fields wore short tunics of white wool; some carried hoes; their hair was close cropped; about their throats had been hammered bands of black iron, with a welded ring attached.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 82

Air, by means of a small bellows, pumped by a thrall boy, in white wool, collared, hair cropped, was forced through a tube in the bottom of each. The air above the canisters shook with heat.

He had blue eyes, and was blond haired. His hair came to his shoulders.
Marauders of Gor     Book 9     Page 172

Of the five contestants I knew well whom I would have first chosen, had I had a choice in such matters, to get his hands on me, a blond, shaggy haired young giant, with freckled wrists, whose hair clung about his shoulders.

Long
To The Top

I saw a massive, lionlike head, with wild long hair and a beard as unkempt and magnificent as the crags of the Voltai itself.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Page 152

Before me, on a rough throne of piled rocks, sat Marlenus, his long hair over his shoulders, his great beard reaching almost to his sword belt.
Tarnsman of Gor     Book 1     Pages 153 - 154

He was not bearded, save for the trace of a tiny wisp of hair that marked each side of his chin, almost like a streak of dirt. His hair was long, and bound in a knot behind his head in Mongol fashion.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 60

His hair, long and black beneath the band of blue and yellow silk, was combed and glossy.
Outlaw of Gor     Book 2     Page 191

Then he shook away his hood, letting his long hair stream behind him over the white fur of the collar.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 15

He was a large-wristed strong man with long, black hair.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 86

In a moment, to a thunder of kaiila paws on the turf, racing between the lines of stakes, scattering sand, there came a great number of riders, their black hair swirling behind them,

His long black hair was now tied behind his head.
Nomads of Gor     Book 4     Page 123

the last was a very large man, broad of back and shoulder, bearded and with long blond hair, a Warrior;

He had brown hair, and brown eyes; the hair, long, was tied behind his head with a string of rence cloth.

I smiled to myself, looking upon the bearded, dour countenance of the officer, his long hair tied behind his head with scarlet string.

He had long hair, and wore a tunic of red and yellow silk.

His hair, long and black, did not seem well cared for. It was dirty, not well combed. It was tied behind his head with a band of blue and yellow silk.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Pages 46 - 47

It was said that he was a fierce, long-haired man, a tarnsman, a warrior.

Marlenus stood for a moment in the light of the torches, and then he threw back his head, with his long hair, and laughed.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 287

We saw thralls, too, in the crowd, and rune-priests, with long hair, in white robes, a spiral ring of gold on their left arms, about their waist a bag of omens chips, pieces of wood soaked in the blood of the sacrificial bosk, slain to open the thing;

The hair of both men was long; the hair of the man behind was tied back with a narrow piece of folded cloth.

"Do not reach for your weapons," said Grunt. "He is Fleer," he added.

"How do you know?" I asked.

"The hair," said Grunt, "is worn in the high pompadour, combed back."

"Like Corn Stalks," I said. The fellow's hair came down his back, flowing even over the spine of the kaiila. He was riding bareback. He carried a long, feathered lance, and a small, round shield, a war shield, on which were inscribed medicine signs.

Wagons caught afire.

I saw defenders unchaining screaming girls. One's hair was afire.

The girls huddled under the wagons, many of them burning.

I saw a defender forcing the head of the girl whose hair burned into the dirt, extinguishing the flames.
Captive of Gor     Book 7     Page 225


The man's head had, some weeks ago, been shaven, a two-and-one-half-inch stripe, running from the forehead to the back of his neck. Now, weeks later, tiny, dark hair was well reasserting itself.
Hunters of Gor     Book 8     Page 8


It was not my fault that my hair had been shaved off, nor that I was not blond or auburn-haired, like herself. Those hair colors tend to bring higher girl-prices.
Slave Girl of Gor     Book 11     Page 330


She then removed her hands from her hair. Behind her, her hair came, falling, to the sweetness of her shoulder blades. This was a bit short for the hair of a Gorean slave girl. Their hair, as is required by most masters, is usually somewhat long. There is more that can be done with long hair, both with respect to adding variety to the girl's appearance and in the furs, than with short hair. Sometimes the girl is even tied in her own hair. Most importantly, perhaps, long hair is beautiful on a girl, or surely, at least, on many girls. Too, many masters enjoy unbinding it, before ordering a girl to the furs. Unbinding a girl's hair, on Gor, incidentally, is culturally understood as being the act of one who owns her. A free woman, captured, whose hair her captor unbinds, usually the first time by the stroke of a knife, a precaution against poison pins and other devices, knows full well by this act that she will soon be made his slave.
Explorers of Gor     Book 13     Page 198


Most were kneeling and stripped, and secured with hair ties. Long hair is enforced on most Gorean slaves by their masters. It is aesthetically beautiful and much, from the point of view of diverse coiffures, revealing new dimensions of the slave's loveliness, may be done with it. Too, as is well known among masters and slaves, its application, in the expression and pursuance of a slave's submission and service, can do much to enhance and deepen a master's pleasures; it is erotically useful. Too, in the absence of more customary restraints, such as, say, binding fiber or graceful, steel shackles, it may serve as a bond.

The commercial value of long hair might also be mentioned. Aside from the obvious fact that it might improve the price of a girl in her sale or resale, it can also be sheared and sold. Free women sometimes buy hair for wigs or falls, and, although the hair they purchase is always certified as coming only from free women, there is little doubt that it is often taken from female slaves.

Too, interestingly, female hair is prized for catapult ropes. It is not only stronger and more resilient than hemp but it possesses better properties of weather resistance, being less affected by moisture and temperature changes. When a city is under siege, particularly if the siege is prolonged, even free women will often have their hair shorn, contributing it then to the supplies for municipal defense. Considering the usual vanity of Goreans, both male and female, over their appearance, this is a patriotic sacrifice of no little magnitude. It is particularly significant when one understands that the women know very well that if they fall into the hands of the enemy, with their hair shorn, they may expect to be sold into low slaveries, such as agricultural servitudes or those of the mills. Sometimes, as time passes, the foremen in such places come to realize that they have an incredible beauty in their power. They often hide such women from their superiors, keeping them for themselves. An additional advantage of long hair in a female slave, incidentally, is that it gives the master additional power over her, for, as he is the master, it is his decision whether or not she shall be able to keep it. One of the commands a Gorean woman most fears to hear, whether she is a captive or a slave, is "Shear her."
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 245


I saw the frightened eyes of another girl, her wrists lifted, bound together with hair, thrown before her face. The hair that bound them hung free before the wrists, dangling from them, in jagged strands, marking where it had been hastily cut free from the hair of the girl before her in a holding coffle. Her own hair, similarly, had been cut short, closely, at the back of her neck, where the girl behind her, with swift strokes of a blade, had been freed.
Blood Brothers of Gor     Book 18     Page 255


Too, documents were found recording the purchase of quantities of slave hair, at suitable prices, some even within the city of Corcyrus itself. This hair, as was attested to by witnesses, had been represented to the public as that of free women, with appropriate prices being expected. Hair, incidentally, is a common trade item in Gorean markets. It is used for various purposes, for example, for insect whisks, for dusters, for cleaning and polishing pads, for cushionings, decorations and ropes, particularly catapult ropes, for which it is highly prized. It is not unusual, incidentally, for slave girls, particularly for those who may not have proved superbly pleasing, as yet, to discover that their hair, even while it is still on them, is expected, like themselves, to serve various lowly, domestic purposes. For example, when a girl, serving at a banquet, hears the command, "Hair," she knows she is to go to the guest and kneel, and lower her head, that her hair may be used as a napkin or wiping cloth, by means of which the free person, either male or female, may remove stains, crumbs or grease from his hands. Similarly a girl's hair, if sufficiently long, may be used for the washing and cleaning of floors. In this she is usually on her hands and knees, and naked and chained. The hair is used in conjunction with the soap and water, in the appropriate buckets, being dipped in, and wrung out, and rinsed, and so on. Hair incidentally, is not used for the application of such things as waxes or varnishes, because of the difficulty of removing such substances from the hair. Such a mistake could necessitate a shearing and a lowering of the market value of a girl for months. For similar reasons, a girl's hair, even within a cloth, if it is still on her, is seldom used for such purposes as buffing and polishing. Hair is common, of course, as a stuffing for pads used for such purposes, for example, for the purposes of cleaning, buffing and polishing.
Kajira of Gor     Book 19     Pages 68 - 69


We took the combs and knelt, letting the blankets fall about our waist, and combed our hair. I think it pleased the men to see us do this. Gorean men relish women, and enjoy watching them, even in the performance of such simple, homely acts as combing their hair. To be sure, we were bare-breasted, and slaves, and obeying. We had not been asked to form a combing circle, probably because they were willing to permit us to remain in the vicinity of the fire. There were too few of us to circumscribe the fire. We would have had to withdraw from the fire, or most of us. In the combing circle we kneel in a circle, each girl combing the hair of the girl in front of her. Making us comb our hair before we were fed, incidentally, is typical of the manner in which Gorean men treat female slaves. The woman is to be presentable and beautiful, before she is permitted food. How much darker, I noted, did my hair, and that of the other brunets look, when it was wet. The combs were of yellow wood, and had long teeth. The entire comb, including the teeth, was about five inches square. There are various hairdos in which such combs are worn in the hair. Usually, however, the hair of slaves is worn long, and loose, or confined only in some simple way, as with a ribbon or woolen fillet. Some masters like the ponytail hairdo on a slave, which, on Gor, is usually spoken of as the "leash," or "hair leash," for, by it, a girl may be conveniently seized and controlled. Upswept hairdos are usually reserved for free women, or high slaves. They are a mark of status. To be sure, one of the reasons for permitting a hairdo of that sort to a slave is the master's pleasure in undoing it, in loosening it, thus reminding even the high slave that in his arms, ultimately, she, the high slave, is yet a slave, and as much or more than the lowest girl in the most remote village. The loosening of a woman's hair on Gor in an extremely sensuous, meaningful act. "Who loosens her hair?" is a way of asking, in effect, who owns her.
Dancer of Gor     Book 22     Pages 111 - 112


I rose to my feet and pressed her back to the tiles, and pulled her wrist chain down, lifting up her feet. I then slipped the wrist chain behind her feet and ankles, and pulled it up, behind her back. This held her hands rather behind her, at her sides. I then put her again to her knees.

"Sir?" she asked.

"You do have auburn hair, don't you?" I said.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 73


"She does have auburn hair," I informed him. "It may be hard to see in this light."

"Then shave it off, and sell it," he laughed.

"The keeper might do that," I said.

Lady Temione moaned, helplessly.

This was, of course, a genuine possibility, particularly in this area at this time. Women's hair, long and silky, plaited into heavy ropes, is ideal for the cording of catapults. It is far superior, for example, to vegetable fibers. It is also superior, in length and texture, to the hair of sleen and kaiila. By now, the hair of slaves in Ar's Station, and doubtless the hair of most of her free women as well, donated in the case of the latter as a contribution to the defense effort, would have been shaved off, or, perhaps, cropped short. If the keeper did decide to shave off, or crop, the hair of the Lady Temione, and, for that matter, the others, the Lady Amina, the Lady Rimice, and so on, he would presumably sell it to suppliers to the Cosians. Under the current conditions, of course, it would be difficult to get such materiel into Ar's Station. Indeed, in a sense, that was the same problem I faced, finding a way into Ar's Station.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Pages 109 - 110


Her blond hair, too, had been cropped. In these times, I suspected there would be few unsheared slave girls in Ar's Station, and probably, too, few unsheared free women. In the case of the slave girls, of course, their hair would simply be taken from them. The hair of the free women, on the other hand, would presumably have been donated, as a contribution to the defense of the city.
Renegades of Gor     Book 23     Page 186


I took my knife and, from the back of her head, gathered together a large handful of her long dark hair, and then cut it off, close to the scalp. I then, using this hair, bound her hands together behind her back.

"You have not earned a use," I said.

I then cut another gout of her hair from the back of her head and used it to tie the flute about her neck. I did not crop the hair about her head with the knife, rather in the manner of shaving it off, as is sometimes done as a punishment for female slaves. I did no more than take the two gouts. To be sure, these two gouts, thick as they were, cleared an irregular space of several square inches of the back of her head. This cleared area, though not evident from the front, was only too obvious from the back. It would doubtless occasion much merriment upon its discovery by her chain sisters, as she was a beauty, and might be envied by them. Too, given her personality, I suspected that they would be likely to find her plight even more amusing. Perhaps she could wear a scarf for a time, or have her hair shortened or tied in such a way as to conceal or minimize the rather liberal extent of this local cropping. One advantage of shaving a girl's head, incidentally, is the duration of the punishment. It is recalled to her, for example, every time she touches her head or sees her reflection. By the time it has grown out, and even by the time that it begins to grow out a little, she has usually determined to do all in her power to be such that her master will permit her to keep her hair. If he wishes, or thinks it judicious, of course, he may keep her with a shaved head. It might also be noted that certain slaves, rather as an occupational mark or precaution, for example, girls working in foundries and mills, often have their heads shaved. Too, it is common to shave a girl completely if she is to be transported in a slave ship. This is to protect her against vermin of various sorts, in particular, lice.
Magicians of Gor     Book 25     Pages 125 - 126


The nudity of the imprisoned slave, I supposed, aside from the usual purposes of such, such as to protect clothing from being soiled, to help her keep in mind that she is a slave, and such, as to prevent the possible use of clothing to secure the latch. The shaved-headedness of them, aside from the usual purpose of such, which is punishment, would doubtless be to prevent the attempt on their part to secure the gate by means of their hair. Shaved-headedness, of course, is not always a punishment. It is sometimes done for hygienic purposes, as on slave ships, and for safety purposes, as in factories. Too, a girl's head may be shaved simply to obtain the hair, which may then be sold. For example, our shorn hair may be sold to jobbers who deal with the manufacturers of artillery and siege equipment. Our "pelting," as it is sometimes referred to in the trade, is apparently considerably superior to hempen strands for use as catapult cordage. Slave girls, it might be mentioned, normally have long hair, as it is very beautiful, and much may be done with it, both cosmetically, so to speak, and in the furs. Too, we may even be bound with it.
Witness of Gor     Book 26     Pages 277 - 278


Whereas long hair is commonly favored in slaves, it is seldom that a slave is brought to the block with ankle-length hair. On the other hand, Gorean free women often have quite long hair, in which they take great pride. It is not unusual that it might reach to the back of their knees. When they are enslaved it is commonly shortened, considerably. There are various reasons for this, as I understand it, for example, the slave learns that she is no longer a free woman, that her hair, its length, dressing, and such, is now at the disposal of masters, that the distinction between her and the free woman is to be clearly drawn, even in a matter as simple as hair, and that the envy of the free woman is not to be aroused at the sight of hair in a slave which might be the pride of a free woman. Too, the shorn hair is of value in a number of ways, not only for wigs, falls, and such, but, too, interestingly, because it makes the best cordage for catapults, far superior to common hemp, and such. Too, I supposed, if one wished to alter the appearance of a free woman, or, more likely, a former free woman, for some reason, perhaps to afford her something in the nature of a disguise, her hair might be shortened.
Swordsmen of Gor     Book 29     Page 121


Interestingly, auburn hair is that pelting, so to speak, which tends to be most favored in the markets.
Conspirators of Gor     Book 31     Page 136


Long hair is favored in slave girls, for several reasons. Doubtless the first reason is aesthetic, as such hair is lovely in a girl. Certainly long hair tends to raise the price of a slave. Too, in the furs, much can be done with long hair to please a master, it brushing against him, and such. Too, as in leading, long hair makes it easier to control the slave. Indeed, sometimes a slave is bound with her own hair. Too, of course, a girl, if only in her vanity wishes to retain her hair, and will do much to keep it. A shaved head not only punishes a girl but marks her out to other slaves as having been a displeasing slave. She is then likely to be the object of much derision and contempt. Lastly, it might be noted that the shorn hair of slaves, commonly marketed as the hair of free women, may be used by free women for various cosmetic purposes, such as wigs and falls. Woman's hair, too, makes the best catapult cordage, being resilient, strong, and weather-resistant. Indeed, when a city is besieged, even free women may donate their own hair for such a purpose.
