If Khumur plural of Khimar, then what does that mean? Women used to cover their heads with several scarves?

Most classical paintings of the Holy Family of Jesus show the ladies having a loose covering (Dupatta) over their heads.
What some Muslim ladies do these days, however, is they cover their head in such a way that not a single strand of hair is visible! Where does the Quran says “cover all your hair or else...”
