Shimada Hairstyle: The Lovely Traditional Hairdo of Japanese Women

The Shimada is a women's hairstyle in Japan, similar to a chignon. Generally the hair is gathered together at the crown of the head and a small portion of the bun is sectioned off to point outward.

This hairstyle was from the Edo period, and still to this day. It became one of the traditional hairstyles of Japanese women.
