As a young noblewoman, Ko-omote has thick, dark hair parted down the middle, blackened teeth, and painted eyebrows high on her forehead, all standards of beauty during Japan's Heian period (794-1185). The Komparu and Kita schools of No_ performers prefer the sweet girlishness of Ko-omote for their portrayals of young women.
