Kanzashi Tutorial at Kyoto
Kanzashi or hair stick in English, is a hair ornament originated in Japan. The beginning of kanzashi can be traced back to the Jomon period where it is believed that a spirit stays in the stick/ rod and is used to pay the devil by inserting it to the hair. Later it became a national style and during the Edo period Japanese women use the kanzashi as hair ornament. Back then kanzashi is made from a good quality bamboo or different kinds of woods and even metal plated with gold or silver.
In the old days, the positioning of the stick has also different meanings. But I don’t know if it is still practiced until now.
