BEST HIGHLIGHTING TIPS FOR ASIAN WOMEN! PICS INCLUDED!

Follow Me on Pinterest
Highlighting Asian hair can be a tricky process because most Asians tend to have very thick hair. Thick hair does not respond to highlights as well  as other hair types and it tends to look very fake when it is dyed. In addition, Asian people tend to have dark hair, dark eyes, paler skin and golden undertones, all of which tend to naturally look great with a sleek black hairstyle. However, this does not mean that Asian women cannot look fantastic with highlighted hair. In fact, if done correctly, adding highlights can improve depth while giving the illusion of movement. When choosing a color, it is always best to make sure that the change is not drastic. Subtle changes, such as brown (golden), mahogany or burgundy, are some general colors that flatter Asian skin and hair. It is not recommended going more than a couple of shades lighter than your normal shade. Shades to avoid include white, platinum blonde, violet and blue shades of black. These colors generally clash with most Asian skin tones, giving them the appearance of looking washed out. If you decide to go much lighter, recognize that darker hair often has to be stripped completely of it's natural color (typically done at the salon with bleach) before the new color is washed in. Sometimes this can result in damaged hair. Products that are used to lighten hair are extremely harsh, so always understand the effects that you are looking for may not turn out exactly as you want them to.  Also, if you are choosing a black color to dye your hair with, note that shades of black are extremely difficult to match. Many women find that even though their natural hair color is a shade of black, the black hair dye that they use can actually look extremely unnatural and may take long (up to a year) to completely grow out. Asian women, like women of other ethnicities, can absolutely wear different hair color. Remember that when it comes to putting chemicals in any lady's hair, no one is exempt from the reality that damage may occur. To try to avoid damages, it is always strongly encouraged to consult with a professional hairstylist. Although cultures have a lot of similarities, each of us may have a different hair routine that works best for us.
