Is the covering on a sister

Is the covering on a sister’s head meant to cover the sister herself or her hair?

Paul speaks of a man with his head covered and of a woman with her head uncovered (1Co 11:4, 5). In the next verse, he says, "If a woman be not covered," and at the end of the verse, "Let her be covered." This is not teaching that the woman is to be covered, as though the head covering hides her. When her head is covered, the woman’s covering properly displays the truth of headship.

Paul is not teaching that the woman or her hair need to be hidden or covered. He is teaching headship, therefore when her head is covered, that is the woman’s covering.
