    • 2002, Catherine Bergman, From the Japanese: A Journalist in the Empire of the Resigned:
      For geishas - sorry, for geikos - the wig covers the whole head. Apprentices, on the other hand, are entitled to only a half-wig, while, in the front, their own hair is brushed, back-combed, and sprayed heavily to finish the look.
