To the uninitiated Westerner, the old Geisha hairstyles often appear the same at first glance. However, this is not the case, and here we can see THREE basic hairstyles on the four girls. Flickr member KUMIYANAGI has identified them (left to right) as SHIMADA, MARUMAGE, SHIMADA (again), and ICHOGAESHI.
