Recreating Ukiyo-e Hairstyles

"They were the beautiful people of Edo-period Japan, the courtesans, geisha, and actors depicted in the ukiyo-e paintings of the 17th through 19th century.

"The world they moved in, the 'floating world' (ukiyo), was all about glamour, sophistication, and style. The fashions they wore reflected not only class and occupation but also trends and individual taste, all of which were focused on the attempt to create an ideal picture of beauty. It's no accident that the artists represented in Painting the Floating World: Ukiyo-e Masterpieces from the Weston Collection applied their skills to capturing every beautiful aspect."
