Ubagami (姥髪)

One type of wig worn by the performers. Used for the roles of aging women. Almost the same shape as the wigs made of black hairs used by young to middle aged female performers, there are Ubagami made of both white hair and a mix of white and black. The hairs cover the ears by falling gently from the middle to the right and left, and the wig is tied at around the collar using a mottoi (string or thread used to tie hair). Each time it is worn, it is tied to fit the individual performer’s head, and is tied with a katsuraobi, and long, thin belt.
