Pharoah

2 yds striped fabric with a symbol attached to the front forehead. The pic only used 1.5 yds. But it needs a bit more length. Cut in an oval 2 yds long by 20" wide. Find center and make a back seam for your head. Attach your snake.

Pharoah or Queen

This actually could be done with a braided wig. 
Easy and efficient.

Queen

Use a stiff fabric or attach a stiff fabric to your decorative fabric. About 20" high. Stitch back seam. Then attach symbols.

Pharoah or Queen

This one could be achieved by making a formed base to attach to a braided wig. Your base could be a broadcloth or twill. Make it long enough to have room to glue the wig on. Glue beads onto the top of the base. Attach symbols.

feathers.

Roman Headdress on a Marble statue in the Vatican. Make two separate oval pieces and sew together. Make sure to insert a stiff fabric. Cover.
Greek Noble

Greek Headdress. Use a
buckram base, wire, cover

find lots of metal head circlets on-line with this arch to it. Then attach a veil.
