Oh god, I second this. I never have had midnight black hair, but rather dark brown, but everyone assumes it's dyed. If I dyed, I'd go lighter! LOL. (which I have, and I like the light brown on me, actually, lol, but I might go chestnut brown next - a richer tone than my natural colour, but also a bit ashy. I'm lucky I can pull off warm and cool tones...)

^ either has a very very light perm on it, or is styled with products. I would say styled though.

Lucky. I showed the stylist a picture and he made my hair look very "Preppy" (like Nicole Richie's) and I do like it, but I really wanted something funky...

i think it has a slight perm. japanese hair salons have very good and natural perm techniques...

vintage princess - i have very fine asian hair that goes crazy and frizzy all the time...i guess we always envy what other people have!

I'm Asian and have pretty dead straight hair - I still use a straightener when I go out to straighten the little kinks at the ends though. I canNOT for the life of me get my hair to do the wavy "beach hair" thing that looks so hot these days. Even when I go to the beach and soak my hair in salt water and scrunch, scrunch, scrunch with my fingers, my hair dries straight again. I want to achieve this look for a party I'm going to next weekend. My question is, is there ANY way at all for Asian hair to get (and stay) wavy? My friends tell me to use sea salt sprays, my straightening iron, etc. but I just don't know if they will work. Has anyone with similar hair achieved success with this hairstyle around here? If so, please give me some tips/advice!

Try putting your hair in a bun when its semi wet and wait till its dry, or if that doesn't work perhaps a curling iron would? if you do it the right way, I'm pretty sure you can achieve that beach look with hairspray easily.

right now my hair is shattered into a 'trendy' mullet. the bottom layer at the nape of my neck is bleached platinum blonde...i love the platinum blonde, i had to bleach/tone it at least twice and a lot cracks off, but it's worth it

i used to have bangs, then i had assymetrical bangs/one side curved with my eyebrow, now i do a sidepart.


sometimes i skip the conditioner too give my hair some more texture. it's crazy what a difference it can make.

To get my hair curly/wavy I curl them into spirals with a curling iron a few hours before going to an event and use a lot of hair spray and by the time I am at the event, my hair would have relaxed into a looser more hapzard relaxed curl.

I got so sick of my Asian hair in college that I cut it all off...right now it's to my chin in choppy layers with long bangs. I get afraid of growing it long becuase it seems like EVERY Asian girl out there has long, layered hair with highlights. But short definitely has it's downsides, i still have to use a ton of product to get it to look choppy.

I LOVE Asian hair. I think its beautiful and I do agree with you Angyl, most of them have it long with layers to bring out some volume. I would probably do the same (sans the layer) and just let it grow out as long as possible! I LOOOOVEEEEE that stick straight hair...and now im officially jealous!

I know it's not the norm, but I'm full Asian and I have really wavy hair. People often ask me where I got my hair permed...

The weird thing is, that it's only the outside layers that are curly. The inside layers are all perfectly straight. A few years ago it was the other way around so no one could tell I had wavy hair.

I'm too lazy to get my hair cut at a salon, and I had bangs across my eyebrows cut a few months ago and now I'm sick of it. So I'm just going to cut my own hair. Hopefully it won't be a huge mess.
