In the Orthodox churches, convents are called monasteries too, so nuns are sometimes referred to as monks.

What's an Orthodox nun like? I've never seen one.

As far as dress goes, the one I have seen wear all black, and their headcovering usually looks like a cross between what the average Orthodox laywoman wears in church and what muslim women wear.  Their habit differs very slightly from that of male monks.
