Geisha and Maiko Hairstyles

This is a charming collection of small busts displaying various geisha and maiko hairstyles. I discovered them at a shrine sale in Osaka; according to the seller they were most likely owned by a hair stylist and  displayed in a salon.  Each one is only about 11 centimeters tall and  55 grams in weight, yet shows remarkable detail in the hair styling, kanzashi hair accessories and facial expressions.
