**In OP’s photo and [this photo](http://i.imgur.com/yJCm1lB.jpg), predominantly.**
[Here’s a diagram](http://imgur.com/5OgG7gl), from memory: The hair is combed & pomades added, then placed in a ponytail and padded with cushions. Then the ponytail is looped & flattened (green) and the hair piece (red) is added. It’s all sewn & tied into place & dressed with kanzashi (the pins). [Here’s](http://imgur.com/RE5eTWv.jpg) the same hairstyle from the front.

**In [this photo](http://imgur.com/OmgcUhb.jpg), no.**([source](https://www.pinterest.com/pin/127367495684022882/)) That’s a wig called a katsura. You can actually see the faint outline of it [here on Kotoha](http://imgur.com/cQPQP3v).

In regards to being famous, Toshimana is reasonably popular in her hanamachi. I wouldn’t exactly call her famous though.

I believe that ei is the website the photo came from.
