I really love all the shots you made in Japan but this one is definitely the I love the most because of the eyelashes, the hair and earrings. It is just like she succeeded in making a look of her face.
I think itâ€™s sad to see Japanese women with bleached blonde hair, when their natural color is so beautiful. For me, this type of dyed hair seems less a fashion statement and more a desire to look like the blonde, white girls held in such high esteem by so many cultures.
@Refusal, normally I’d agree. But this seems less like a rejection of her natural black hair, than simply experimenting with possibilities. It’s done at such a high level; I don’t think she would have settled for that orange/blond that often happens when Asian hair is bleached. That makes it feel like an inclusion, rather than an exclusion or rejection.
I see young people without an identity–in this picture to the point that one would want to look like a stereotype of Western beauty….It’s too “normalised” to the Western stereotype of beauty to be edgy
i agree with Nomi. judging from her highly individual take on personal style, it would be extremely premature to call her move to dye her hair as one of neglecting her Asian identity. from what i understand, the japanese have embraced fashion in a level that goes beyond the blind acceptance of anything western.
many east asian girls dye their hair, but it’s hardly attributed to the abandonment of their own ethnicity.
I typically hate it when Asian women dye their hair blonde because it looks artificial, but this girl is stunning and looks individualistic rather than conformist. She also went the extra step and did her brows. Nice.
