I agree here, and I would say it's silly to think Asians, blacks and other non-Caucasians will be able to look good with blonde hair or lighter eye color. There's been enough research to support the stance much of it is a cultural push to blend in with the Caucasian standard of beauty. In fact, in Asia the Caucasian standard of beauty-- with straight hair-- is the norm. It's one thing if a black or Asian person has natural blonde hair-- it doesn't look like "bottle blonde." But they are a very, very small part of the population and should not be used to extrapolate to the majority.I think curly hair is more likely to better suite people than blonde hair on Asian or Black women. I think we're so conditioned to believe that "everyone is beautiful" that Bruchilda's posts got pounced on, but I agree with her points about the hair color.
Yeah, there's always that .000001% of Black or Asian women with naturally blonde hair that it looks decent on but for the most part, when I see women of color dying their hair blonde or wearing ridiculous blue/green contacts they look sad and pitiful,esp. those Asian import car models with their obvious dyed hair and fake boobs. It's like, 'who are you trying to fool? you're not a white girl, and you're never going to be one!' leave the blue eyes and blonde hair to those it actually suites. it just reeks of self-loathing.
Lil' Kim, for example, was a naturally beautiful woman with good bone structure and pretty brown eyes but once she went overboard with the blonde weaves, blue contacts, nose jobs, etc etc she looked like a self-hating MESS. Nicki Minaj looks much better now after her 'make-under'. Ditching the colored contacts and blonde mess has made a world of difference in her appearance.
Yes, there are very few women of color who look good with blonde hair but for the MOST part, it does not.
The truth is curly hair is not acceptable as a societal norm unless it's non-natural curls. The "beachy waves" look with wavy curls is popular but it involves styling to get the curls to be somewhat flat and the hair at the crown is way too flat for my liking. Back in the 1930's and 1940's, curls were popular but they had to look a certain way and the waves had to sit together in a pattern that doesn't occur naturally. But these things don't exclude men from liking curly hair. It's just that some men prefer straight hair and I don't think we should demonize men for having preferences.
