Talking about hair styles, short hair really suits KIMONO indeed.
However, I'm sure you still want to updo your hair and wear gorgeous hair accessories.
For example, we have hair sticks. Some excavated artifacts tell us that Japanese women already wore hair sticks or combs in the Jomon Era (approx. 14000 B.C. - the fourth century B.C.).
In the Heian era, the prerequisite for beauty was rich, long straight hair. At that time, people didn't have updo styles.
The NIHON-GAMI (Japanese) style decorated with various kinds of hair sticks appeared in the middle of the Edo era. While enjoying a long peace after the Warring States period, women's hair styles became more and more complex, and at that time, specialized hair dressers were in brisk demand.
Today, there are so many varieties of hair accessory products in the market, ranging from ones made of expensive material such as tortoiseshell, coral, or amber, to casual material such as cloth or rubber. In terms of shapes, there are
barretters, hair bands, etc...so many items that I cannot even choose sometimes.
There's no exact rule for choosing hair sticks, but it must be suitable for your KIMONO. You know, it's the balance!
YUMEYAKATA offers various kinds of very lovely hair accessories. After wearing them with YUMEYAKATA's KIMONO, it is your souvenir to recall the memories of Kyoto.
