gildedhistory:

Aphrodite was frequently depicted in ancient sculptures wearing a distinct  hairstyle coined the “Aphrodite knot.” This knotted hairstyle was also featured, and particularly popular, on Greco-Roman women’s portrait busts from around 50 BC. The hair was simply separated into two sections and tied in a square knot on the top of the head.
