I'm asian and I think black hair looks very boring on asian girls, unless you're tall and gorgeous like Kelly Hu or that Japanese lady from the Last Samurai. In my opinion, Asian facial features don't stand out very much and we need color to brighten up our face. The right brown/blonde/red shade can make a person look so much better, even without makeup. On the other hand, Caucasian women/men look absolutely gorgeous with very dark hair, especially if they have blue/green eyes.
i have to agree with you baggi. only two people like my natural hair color which is dark brown, my mom and my older sister..biased because they absolutely loathe light hair in general! lol

my natural hair color is dark brown, i think its okay but im glad i decided to start dyeing my hair. ive been all different shades brown, from light brown (without the orange luckily), to super dark again, dark red, light red(more natural looking and flattering than dark red), and blonde highlights on light brown. dark brown is challengeing even though that is my natural hair color, i cannot imagine dyeing my hair black.

lighter hair has been more low maintanence for me. i can go without makeup without looking washed out like i do with dark hair. im very fair skinned, i think it helps with different hair colors a lot. experimenting is fun as long as you choose shades that will flatter your skintone

I have asian hair and I like it because it's managable. I've always loved dark hair against blue/green eyes because it really brings the color out.

I think one of the reasons why I loved (loved) Adriana Lima was because she had that jet black hair against these cat-like eyes. I thought it was stunning

Yes this is what I am a little concerned about (most likely a silly concern but anyway)- I have just finished my law degree and have a few job interviews coming up and am a little worried that because of my hair colour I will be looked down upon. I've worked in a couple of firms that have made plenty of comments about not liking blondes ("oh but you're ok!" ) and much preferring brunettes (wtf??). As a blue-eyed (natural) blonde it's irritating to be judged as stupid, trashy, dumb etc when I know of several idiots in law who are incompetent just because they suck at their job rather than due to their hair colour.

Joie:

Law is tough for women. I have to say that I have a gorgeous boss who is a successful criminal defense atty. She is blonde and pretty so she does not always get the respect she deserves. She's brilliant. I am sure the same would be true for a brunette or a red head, as well. I don't think it is always about being a blonde, although for some reason, the blondes always get the short end of the stick, even if they are brilliant, you always have to prove yourself. Society still judges a woman's intellect based on her looks and obviously her haircolor..if your beautiful, you must be dumb and/or shallow..never smart. It is ridiculous. Are all beautiful women expected to work in the fashion or beauty industry? Would we dare tell a nice-looking male atty he should be an male model or a lifeguard or something..NO! What hipocracy! All I can suggest is that if you are a platinium blonde, darken it a notch or two, while remaining a blonde or stay the light blonde that you are and get a shorter professional cut...somewhere you have to look polished. I don't believe that a woman should change herself for her work, but the norms of society decide all that nonsense. Currently my hair is long, but I just put it in a chic cignon and forget about it. Also, your wardrobe should be chic, not boring. Professional does not have to be black and navy suits everyday. Add your own flair to it and set yourself apart. Hope this helps.

Thanks very much for the advice CarolC It's a little darker blonde now (I posted a little pic recently in the 'style my hair' thread). I try and put it up in an ibis clip and I'll grow it out a little so I can do chignons etc with it. I'm still tossing up going darker though, it's just hard to "let go" of the blonde (sounds ridiculous, I know, esp as it's summer here now).

You would have thought we'd evolved past what a woman looks like and how that relates to her capacities but sadly that's not the case (happens a lot to female politicians too, at least in Australia, and no doubt it happens to females in other occupations as well).

I just colored my hair black..im asian and I usually color myhair brown or light brown but im just getting tired of maintaining it cause it turns orange on me and makes me look trashy. So black hair looks more classy and just much more sexier on me that is! plus my bf likes me with black hair

Black hair is the best color to get because it lasts the longest. All the other added colors (red, brown) actually get washed away rather easily.

gahh i have a girl got this cut and hair colour (she was blonde) in my class O_O her hair is long and she is not tall......
look like half cracked coconut with air root... gee :S:S:S

even thought im Asian, I was born with chestnut brown with bunch of little highlight...... when i was young i have people accuse me of dyeing my hair and when i do dye my hair to a lighter brown, no one really notice....

now im 17 and my hair turn into reddish dark brown, which looks black it they pile together//// so my deliemma is how can i lighten my hair (like half-1.5 shade) without dyeing it??? i want my baby brown hair to be back >.<
(btw the reason i want it is because i have natural fair skin and the overall contrast with black/brown hair is slighty creepy.)

go to the swimming pool as much as you can, and make sure that your hair is "washed" by the pool's water... you will find your hair become lighter in colour again..
this is the way that my naturally black hair turned into dark brown.( i am an asian too.. )

I have fair skin and love the contrast of my dark brown/black hair. I think it is beautiful for a girl to have at least one big contrast on her head. (ie, for blondes, it would be white blond and smokey eyes.). It makes you really "pop out" instead of falling into the sea of generic looks.

Hi guys,

I have dyed black hair. It is a soft black compared to the harsher blue-black that is also available. I have had this color since I was 19 years old and I am now 35. I experimented with going blonde once, but it was a nightmare, the shade wasn't so bad, it was the condition of my hair. I tried to go blonde from the dyed black hair. My hair was falling out, but I have a ton of hair, so I can't say that I ever went bald from it. Just had burnt hair. Anyway..to the point...now that I have hit 35, I am starting to get some grays near my temples. My natural hair color is a medium brown. My dilemma is, now that I am getting older, should I try and go blonde again seeing as my future growth will end up being silver gray anyway? I have always wanted to be a Carolyn Bessette Kennedy blonde- when she went white blonde. I have big brown eyes though, which to me, doesn't really matter..look at Jessica Simpson, she carries her blonde mane off well with the brown eyes. I have light skin and am craving that same look that Carolyn pulled off, light skin, blonde hair with white highlights and those red lips. A classy look, not cheap. I am thinking of growing out this black and trying to go this color blonde from my natural med. brown that is now graying. Bad idea???? I will post a picture of myself now. (see below) Everyone always says I am stunning with my black hair. I know the pros to staying dark--less maintenance and probably classier. Why do we always want what we cnnot have?!?! HELP..can use your opinions. Thanks! CAROL

I started getting white hairs when I was 16. I used to pluck them out, but now I'm too attached.

It's got me wondering what I will do when they start taking over. I think I would rather embrace it. It would look odd to have white roots coming in, when the change is inevitable.
