Counter-intuitively, head armor can be worn by anyone, no matter it's type. A mage can wear a plate helm, if he wants to. The difference is that a plate helm is going to have stats and bonuses designed for a plate-wearer, not a mage.
The icon used is not based on quality, either, but is basically the same at all quality grades, and is based only on the type of head piece. For instance, all Chain Helmets will use one of the two icons, Chain Helmet 1 or Chain Helmet 2, no matter what their quality grade or tier.
Some types have more than one icon, and some can even use the icon of a different type (breaking the rules, of course. If there were no exceptions there could be no rules).
Laurels use Crown, Hairpins can use just about any icon, and Veils use Mask 1.
