Woman's head becoming exposed during salaah

Q: “Quarter of the head is approximately the amount of the palm with the fingers.” So to estimate this, do I place my hand vertically on my head or horizontally?

What if some of my hair is showing and some of my awrah from my arm is showing? Do I need to add them up together? 

A: Both ways.

Yes you will add the two.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
