You've all seen it. The typical Asian geek. No sense of style. Whether I like it or not, clothes and appearance are very important for first impressions.
Well, I've been trying to improve on that lately. I've been dressing better and taking better care of myself. One of the few things that are left is my hair.
You see, I have very typical Asian hair: straight and limpy. So bad that I can't wear a hat/toque/hood without completely destroying my hair for the entire day. I guess it might be a byproduct of shampooing my hair too much until it turns into a crisp. Lately I've just been shampooing every second day and just giving it a good thorough rinse on the in-between days. It's gained a lot of volume. I've also let it grow out slightly more than I usually let it (I tend to keep it short - a haircut every month or so. Now it's about two and half months). This is because I'm looking for a new hairstyle, and I can be more flexible with longer hair (you can only cut and remove, not add).
Currently, I have the typical Asian geek hair style. just straight and combed forward. No, not the one where it parts down the side or the middle. You've all seen it if you've ever been to University. On special days I use that D:Fi hair putty to make it messy. But, I've had this for about 4-5 years now, so I want something new. I was thinking of dyeing my hair and making it more punk (ie. avoiding the stereotypical blonde highlights that urban Asians tend to have). Does anyone have any suggestions that would look good on Asians? Or does anyone know of any resources for Asian hairstyles?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
