Kimono Tutorial - Hairstyles Special by Hanami-Mai Kimono Tutorial - Hairstyles Special by Hanami-Mai
The next part of my tutorial would cover informal kimono, but I was asked by :iconspring-sky: 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! :aww:

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:

:star: 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…
:star: For traditional japanese hairstyles in detail, please see these amazing nihongami drawing tutorials by ~ShotaKotake : www.deviantart.com/?q=nihongam…
:star: For some info and drawings of chinese hairstyles in this tutorial I referenced these wonderfull tutorials by ~lilsuika : www.deviantart.com/art/Evoluti… lilsuika.deviantart.com/art/Po…
:star: And last but far from least, this blog shows an amazing compilation of info (and photos!) of korean Joseon dynasty hairstyles, hats and ornaments for women and men: thetalkingcupboard.wordpress.c…

Please forgive me for any mistakes! This topic is not my strongest point! ^^;
Any corrections, please feel free to tell me!

I have a question about the nihongami style... I don't think I've ever seen anyone wear a hairpin in the front of their head. Are you sure you're not seeing things wrong?

Hello. Yes, I'm sure. ^^
Today's nihongami wearers - mostly geisha and maiko - don't wear hairpins on the front section of the hair, you're right. :nod:
But in earlier times, there were many other kinds of nihongami besides the ones geisha and maiko wear, and some of them featured kanzashi in the front. Here are some examples:

Oiran hairstyle is particularly filled with front (and back) kanzashi, as seen in this antique photo:  www.pinterest.com/pin/23193544…

These nihongami tutorials (which were one of my info sources for this tutorial) feature some nihongami types with hairpins in front:

I hope I answered your doubt. ^^
