(n) traditional Japanese hairstyle

Nihongami (日本髪, literally Japanese hair) broadly refers to hairstyles worn by Japanese people from about the Kofun period (250–538 CE) to the early Shōwa period (1926-1989). More narrowly, it refers to women's hairstyles from the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1568 to 1603) to the end of the Edo period (1603-1868).
