A symbol of woman

A hair is a symbol of woman.
To put down her hair means her relaxing.
If someone look in the scene when a woman is putting down her hair.
It embarrasse her.

But the man in this SHUNGA can’t stop to wait finishing her hair washing.

I think there were many the impatient in Edo period..
