冠(笄)之礼是我国汉民族传统的成人仪礼,是汉民族重要的人文遗产。华夏先祖对于冠礼非常重视,所谓“冠者礼之始也”“男子二十冠而字”。成人礼作为人生礼仪的重要组成部分之一,对个体成员成长的激励和鼓舞作用非常之大。今天,作为文明的传承者,子衿汉服社将带领大家学习、创新和实践新的冠(笄)礼,通过男子加冠取字,女子加笄命字,让民族传统礼仪对振奋民族精神文明、激励青年人的成长发挥应有的作用。
时间:五月二十五日,下午三时
地点:文化广场

Posters for traditional Chinese coming-of-age ceremonies called “Guan Li/冠礼” for men & “Ji Li/笄礼” for women. During the Guan Li, the man’s hair is combed into a bun and capped with a special headpiece (although nowadays I think they just do the capping part because most men have short hair). During the Ji Li, the woman’s hair is coiled into a bun and held in place with an ornate hairpin. 

Notice how each poster depicts two versions of the same person – before and after becoming an “adult”.
