Free choice to the Geisha makeover You can choose the Geisha makeover on all plans. Maiko style is young and cute. Geisha(Geiko) style is adult cool japanese style.
An actual Maiko (an apprentice Geisha or dancing girl) will become a Geisha (Japanese dancing girl) at the age of 20. However, as this is a session to experience, please feel free to choose the style you like regardless of age.
Maiko Style
Maiko and Geisha makeover Maiko and Geisha makeover Maiko and Geisha makeover

A cute style for makeup is used in order to bring out the youthfulness. However, a Maiko can also use an elegant style of makeup. They use ornate hairpins with flowers attached. The resplendent long-sleeved kimono (traditional Japanese clothing) and loose obi (belt for kimono) is characteristic for a Maiko.

Geisha(Geiko) Style
Maiko and Geisha makeover Maiko and Geisha makeover Maiko and Geisha makeover

The makeup effect is adult-like and cool. They use ornate hairpins made out of tortoiseshells. The kimono often has simple patterns, and calm colors, and the belt is tied in “otaiko”, a common way of tying a kimono’s sash (standard).
