Ancient Chinese Hair Styles: Flying Fairy Style (飛天髻, Fēi tiān jì)

There are many folk stories set during the Han Dynasty, of heavenly beings who descend to earth to pass on wisdom. Legend has it that the Heavenly Mother of the Jade Palace visited Emperor Wu Di. He was so astounded by the visit that he recorded the flying fairies’ hairstyle, and asked his court maidens to imitate it. Today, we can see this kind of hairstyle on the Shen Yun stage—the flying fairy style.

The flying fairy style is a type of up-do, where one's actual hair connects at the top of one’s head with hair extensions, with a jade hairpin used as an ornament. It was first seen in imperial courts, and was later popularized among the general public.

So just what exactly does this have to do with wisdom? On a deeper level, the flying fairy style represents a connection between heaven and earth. The ancients described the hairstyle through this piece of poetry – “Fairies from the heavens, descending to meet the emperor; upon close examination, you will see but a reflection of the hair as light, disappearing as a blanket of mist.”

飛天髻,始於南北朝時代的宋文帝時期,飛天髻的前身是漢代的飛仙髻,傳說漢武帝曾與瑤池王母會面,王母身邊天女的髮式迥異於人間。於是他命令宮中的女子模仿,稱之為飛仙髻,也是我們今天在神韻的舞台上最常見到的仙女髮型。

飛天髻是高髻的一種,高髻是將真髮和假髮一起高高盤在頭頂,並配以珠玉頭飾的髮型,最初是宮廷仕女的裝扮,後來也流行於民間。著名的高髻式樣還有望仙髻,凌雲髻,螺髻等。

飛天髻,記錄了天上與人間的聯繫。人們是這樣描述它的美:飛仙飛仙,降於帝前。回首髻光,為霧為煙。
