A bit of history
The kanzashi are hair ornaments used in traditional Japanese hairstyles. Its origins date back to the time when Japanese women abandoned the typical taregami style, where their hair was kept straight and long and adopted the nihongami style cut. During that time the wearing of a single thin rod or stick in the hair was considered to hold powers to ward off evil spirits.
Kanzashi came into wider use during the Edo period, when hairstyles became larger and more complicated, using a larger number of ornaments. Artisans began to produce more finely crafted products, including some hair ornaments that could be used as defensive weapons. During the latter part of the Edo period, the craftsmanship of kanzashi is considered to have reached a high point, with a number of styles and designs created, many of which persist to the modern day.
The term kanzashi refers to a wide variety of accessories, including long, rigid hairpins and slides, hair sticks, combs, fabric flowers and fabric hair ties.
