She is a Maiko, an apprentice geiko/geisha. Their hairstyle, makeup, accessories, etc. change depending on their years of experience. I didn't follow those rules so it would not look right to someone who has knowledge of this tradition. Please refrain from commenting on that topic. Thank you Original and prints are available. If you'd like to purchase, please note me.
