The high bun, which was popular in the early Tang dynasty, is reaching its peak at this time.
The open and tolerant culture led to frequent exchanges between various ethnic groups, and Han women’s hairstyles added elements of ethnic minorities and evolved on this basis.
During the heyday of the Tang dynasty, female hairstyles changed from the simplicity of the early Tang dynasty and added many accessories.
Shuang Huan Wang Xian Ji 双鬟望仙髻
Shuang Huan Wang Xian Ji (Chinese: 双鬟望仙髻 ; pinyin: shuāng huán wàng xiān jì) is one of the ancient Han women’s hairstyles, a high bun with double rings.
The feature of Shuang Huan Wang Xian Ji is the ring-shaped hair rising high on both sides of the head.
Shuang Huan Wang Xian Ji was popular in the Tang dynasty.
As it was difficult to create and maintain this hairstyle using only hair, so some scholars have speculated that the two great rings of Shuang Huan Wang Xian Ji should have been supported by metal cables.
Wo Duo Ji 倭堕髻
Wo Duo Ji (Chinese: 倭堕髻 ; pinyin: wō duò jì) is characterized by the shape of the hair into a bun, on the side from the top of the head and the bun hangs down, the shape of the bun as if it is falling.
This bun style has appeared since the Han and Wei eras and continues to develop.
With the popular development, the top bun is gradually shrinking, combing out more hair and fluffing up more.
Yi Ji 义髻
In ancient China, women had long hair as the standard of beauty, but women with short and thin hair could also rely on Yi Ji (Chinese: 义髻 ; pinyin: yì jì), a bun made of wigs to create the perfect hairstyle.
Yi Ji is made of metal or wood wire to make a frame or various styles of buns, and then painted with black lacquer or cloth from the outside.
The emergence of the Yi Ji makes the bun more fluffy and towering.
