Heian women would sometimes use wigs to get the appearance of long hair. 

“Long, lustrous hair was a great social asset. Heian ladies wore it parted in the middle and hanging perfectly straight to the floor. False hair was used when necessary” quoted from The Story of the Kimono by Jill Liddell, page 46
