the old meets new
The Shimada is a Japanese women's hairstyle. While it's modern usage was mainly limited to Geisha during the Edo period, it was also worn by ordinary women. It's seeing a resurgence in popularity in Japan today.
There are four major types of the Shimada:
- Taka Shimada - a high chignon, usually worn by young, newly married women
- Tsubushi Shimada - a more flattened chignon generally worn by older women
- Uiwata - a chignon that is usually bound up with a piece of color cotton crepe
- Momoware - a style that ends up looking like a divided peach, typically work by younger women.
Laura will create a version of the Shimada based on your face-shape and desired youthfulness. By advance request she will create a custom themed great, and has become known in Orange County for the Disney Princess theme.
