Weekly Photo Challenge: Face


Asian Hair. (Nothing to do with the theme–a rant, if you will.) Just recently, Shihoh, a Japanese friend of mine, were talking about haircuts. She pointed to her son and made the remark that the hairdresser made to her: I don’t know how to cut this type of hair. Well, how many times over the years have I heard that same remark made to me!

So, what is so different about our hair that makes it too difficult to cut? The strands are too round? There’s too much hair? Too coarse? What? What? What is the answer?

Quote of the Day:

It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.        ~Stephenie Meyer

  1. Lovely image for this challenge. As for hair and cutting, I can tell you that my thin, white-person hair gets similar remarks. My guess is that some stylists are not trained to cut all types of hair? I go to what is referred to as a “multicultural” shop now and they do wonders with my hair.

  3. Oh man, I don’t want to step in it, but when I think of “typical” Asian hair, I picture perfectly straight,silky locks.I think most hairdressers are afraid to cut this type of hair because it is hard to mask any imperfections in the cut. My hair is wavy and coarse, so a weed-whacker would suffice!
