      Interesting. As far as I know, geisha (literally "person of art")
      dates to the 18th century and the earliest geisha were men.

      In our period, Japanese women wore their hair long and straight,
      sometimes bound into a loose ponytail. (This includes entertainers
      such as the shirabyoshi dancers). Camelia oil was used as a hair
      treatment. Showing the neck was like showing cleavage in the west -
      courtesans and prostitutes put their hair up, but the styles are much
      less elaborate than those we have come to associate with the Edo
      period geisha.
