"Marumage" Do-It-Yourself Traditional Japanese Hairstyle Kit

Otomo Chisato Design Co., Ltd. (Tokyo)

The number of people who want to enjoy dressing up in kimono is increasing both in Japan and abroad. However, one of the things that makes kimono seemingly difficult to approach are the Japanese hairstyles that are difficult to set on your own. “Nihongami style” is particularly difficult – even its simplified version takes an hour to set at a hair salon. In addition, it also makes hair-washing difficult because it requires covering all of one’s hair in a large amount of oil. The Marumage Do-It-Yourself Traditional Japanese Hairstyle Kit provides a perfect solution for such problems: it lets you quickly set your updo in just 10 minutes. Using the Marumage kit is very easy. You simply attach parts made from special hook-and-loop fastener materials, which don’t damage your hair, to both sides and the rear of your head, and wrap you own hair around them to cover the parts. Its excellent usability and the looks you can achieve with it – which you’ll definitely want to share on social media – draw attention from Japanese people and foreign tourists alike. While fewer beauty schools teach how to set Nihongami style nowadays, Marumage plays a part in keeping up the tradition of Japanese hairstyles.

Winner’s Voice

着物は着るだけで体に良いと言われ、邦楽や舞踊、日本文化にはストレスに打ち勝つα波や情緒があり、これに触れる事が人々の心と体を元気にすると勉強しました。ファッションデザイナー歴25年目、トレンドファッションを牽引して参りましたが、今後は本当に人々の心と体に有意義な日本文化=情緒文化を発信をしたいと思うようになりました。表コンセプトは「キモノにぴったりのインスタ映えする日本髪で、国内外の方をおもてなししたい」。本当に嬉しいのは「このキットを使いたいから着物を買った」と言う方が少なくない事と、「かつて芸者が、既婚者の象徴まるまげを結って良縁祈願に行った」との実話が本当になって「まるまげを結う様になって彼氏が出来ました。結婚が決まりました」の報告が多い事です。まるまげに触れた皆様が幸せになります様に心より願っております。
