The classic crown shown on the website Alexander 1917 provided is not, I think, the Hohenzollern crown. It looks to me like the Hannover family crown.

Here is the Hohenzollern crown:

Just how did she perch that tiara on top of that hair, I wonder?

with those coiffeurs it's not a hard task.. put your hair over a ring of foam plastic, and morst of the rhinestone things hold..without many hairpins...and those tiaras a sometimes really heavy...

It does, Eric. But to me it looks like an exagerrated Gibson rather than Geisha.  And, I do not think they had foam plastic in those days.  A coill of fabric perhaps or a rat. In any case, something had to hold it in place. Pity the poor maid who had that job!

Gravity and hairpins.
