The next part of my tutorial would cover informal kimono, but I was asked by
about the differences between traditional japanese and chinese hairstyles. So I decided to make this little tutorial special! I hope it's somewhat useful, Spring-Sky!
My knowledge on nihongami is basic, and on chinese and korean tradition, even smaller... So this tutorial has a far from deep approach. It aims to be a simple "quick guide" for begginers to start telling apart japanese typical hairstyles from these two other countries'. As usual, for a more detailed knowledge (and if you really want to draw something accurate), please research more about the kind of hairstyle you have in mind.
...If you want to know more on the subjects of this tutorial:
As usual, I strongly reccomend the Kyoto Costume Museum site for reference on japanese historical fashion (and hairstyles): www.iz2.or.jp/english/index.ht…

For some info and drawings of chinese hairstyles in this tutorial I referenced these wonderfull tutorials by ~lilsuika
