Nihongami literally translates to “Japanese hair” and covers the various hairstyles from the Kofun period (250-538) to the early Showa period (1926-1989). If you would like to try a nihongami hairstyle using your natural hair (or with hair attachments), visit Seiko Sawada, a professional kamiyuishi (traditional Japanese hairstylist) in Miyagi. She opened her salon, Nihongami beauty parlor Sawada, in 2017 and also offers photos sessions where you can dress up as an oiran courtesan, a historic court noble, or a maiko or geisha.
