    Default Asians and red/light brown hair?

    I'm curious how people feel about Asians (Chinese, Korean, Japanese ect.) having red, light brown/blonde hair.




    Do Asian girls look okay with the more unnatural colors or should they/we stick to the classic dark brown/black?




    When my DBF and I first met I had my hair dyed red for a short period of time but have had black hair since. He recently expressed that he'd like me to return to the red but I was surprised because I didn't think people were fond of Asians with unnatural hair colors.

    Opinions?

    I think Asian chicks should do whatever they like with their hair.

    That said, I personally tend to love that fabulous glossy black, maybe because it is never going to happen for me in this life, even if I flat-ironed and dyed it half to death.

    The girl in the second picture's hair is really, really cute, though.

    I think they can look lovely with a warm brown or a reddy colour.

    I'm not fond of the blonde (which generally goes yellow) colour though.

    Of course each to their own and everybody suits different things

    the lighter browns have a more younger and youthful look to them, kind of lolita-ish I guess.


    I personally prefer the lighter browns, but the dark is very seductive, Geisha-ish.


    I hope this doesn't offend anyone! I'm not trying to stereotype people.

    It's up to the individual, though I'll admit the classic black is my favourite. But if you watch enough anime, any hue becomes a normal hair colour.

    Well, first of all, it's your head of hair to do with what you wish.

    But personally I do not like light colors on most Asians. It's not that flattering to the Asian complexion. Asian hair, in its natural state, is so beautiful, I can't imagine wanting to change it if I had it.

    Well let me start off by saying that when you live in a country where pretty much every citizen has naturally black hair, I can understand the urge to shake it up and try a different color.

    But being from a European country where medium/dark ash blonde is pretty much the basic color, having glossy black hair sounds like a dream. Whenever I see a girl with jet black hair I can't help but watch her. I just love that color and how shiny it looks in the sun.

    So I think it all depends on your point of reference. In the end it's all about what you want and what you think looks good on you. My honest opinion though is that I dread seeing that liquid shiny jet black hair dyed lighter. I don't know if it's the hair type or the amount of processing it needs to go through before reaching those lighter colors, but somehow it always seems to lose what made it appealing to me. So personally, asians with jet black hair is a winning combination for me. But that's just my opinion and obviously your bf disagrees with me

    I agree. The second one was my favorite.

    I like the warm brown too. A little softer.

    You just made me like my black hair again!

    I'm sure you didn't offend anyone.

    I love natural Asian hair! As someone with curly auburn hair, I guess we all covet what we don't have! My aunt is Japanese and when I first met her I fell in love with her hair, she had this long curtain of shiny black hair. It gleamed. It has since been dyed light brown, and while it looks nice, it doesn't have the same wow factor.
    I myself think that everyone looks best when they stick more or less to what they are born with and not drastically change their natural colouring, but at the same time I understand some people enjoy it and it can look quite funky. It is just down to personal preference.

    Since I've basically always had black hair I feel that way about red hair. I think it's crazy beautiful, but more so on Caucasians.

    I like the way you said "liquid shiny." I think that describes a lot of Asian hair very well.
