Heru (ornamental combs) were traditionally used by Māori men to fasten their long hair, which was oiled and sometimes braided, up into topknots. The topknots were augmented with heru and bird feathers, particularly feathers from the now extinct hūia. Heru indicated the rank of the wearer, and were either carved from a single piece of wood or whale bone, or made from individual wooden teeth intricately lashed together.
