Hello again!

I was looking at the back of the taka shimada hairstyle and I recognized two straps of what only look like metal bands. Would someone be so kind as to explain what that is and when/why it is put there? :?

Ookini ^^ :oops:

I assume you mean those on a Geiko like on Kikutsuru?

I forget the name, but they are her "Wings" meaning she is a Geiko whom has had her erikae within the past year. It's like leaving the upper lip unpainted on a freshly debuted maiko (One year). They are put there when the katsura is styled.

HTH! :kawaii:

The metal "wings" are called nemaki: http://www.immortalgeisha.com/ig_bb/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=16608 The wings are cut about a year after one's erikae, so that only the metal band remains. :)
