During the reign of the Flavian dynasty (69-96 CE), the hairstyle, which was styled with artificial hair to create real towers of curls, was extremely popular among the Roman female aristocracy.

The hairstyle is defined as a bird’s nest. The most complicated hairstyle was intended for special moments, such as a wedding. For comparison, below how the hairstyle is shown on the sculpture.
