Studying Christian Headcovering

I didn't have time to put together a good article to go with the entries I came across the past couple of days, but you might want to check out these articles:

"On the Veiling of Virgins"
Fathers of the Church > On the Veiling of Virgins, by Tertullian, in
Text Translated by the Rev. S. Thelwall
Turn we next to the examination of the reasons themselves which lead the apostle to teach that the female ought to be veiled, (to see) whether the self-same (reasons) apply to virgins likewise; so that hence also the community of the name between virgins and not-virgins may be established, while the self-same causes which necessitate the veil are found to exist in each case. [sample of translation from chapter 7]

Although no-one will hold a gun to your head if you refuse the head-covering, one thing is sure to happen: the continued refusal of the veiling will accomplish a few things in your life that you DON'T want to happen, if you are a serious Christian.
