These Are the Most Popular Asian Hairstyles on Pinterest
Being Asian, I've always had thick, black hair. I grew up with a messy boy-style cut until I was 13, and as soon as I was in high school, I cut it into a short bob that lasted all the way into adulthood. I then decided to experiment with my hair, trying everything from an asymmetrical punk haircut, to a failed attempt at blonde streaks (my hair turned orange). That was the most adventurous I ever went, period. For a few years now, I've the same hairstyle—shoulder length with a fringe (I call it lazy-girl hair). Plus, it works really well with my round face-shape.
Once in a while, I can't help but browse Pinterest for hairstyles that other Asian girls are searching for—it indulges my fantasy that one day I might branch out and try something different. It would seem I'm not alone, because data gathered by Pinterest shows that there has been an 82 percent increase in people in Australia saving ideas for Asian hairstyles since the beginning of this year. With all this increased pinning, it had me wondering what everyone was searching for? So without further adieu, keep scrolling for the hairstyles (and colour pairings) that Asian's can't stop pinning.
Unlike Australia where it has all but died off, pastel is still an Asian hair trend that's well and truly happening (especially millennial pink). This tousled bob has a cool K-pop superstar feel to it. If you crave this creamy, ice-cream hue, enlist the help of a rinse to keep it fresh between salon visits. Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink is brilliant.
Tousled waves are perfect for work, weekends, dinner dates, weddings, anything, so it's no surprise every Asian girl has a couple of pins on hand for inspiration purposes. Try a conditioning cream like this one from R + Co for soft, knot-free strands (Asian girls aren't into roughed up texture).
Balayage is not over when it comes to Asian hairstyles according to Pinterest, but especially when paired with this layered lob. Use a toning shampoo to keep highlights fresh—Fudge's Clean Blonde Shampoo is amazing and will last you forever.
