Highlights for Asian Hair

Singer Brenda Song's color is one of the most beautiful examples of highlights for Asian hair. Her naturally black color is intertwined by purple, maroon, and blonde strands. This look won't work in a professional setting, but if you attend a school with a relaxed dress code, why not go for it?!
Although Asian cultures still praise traditional style, and anything other than solid black hair can still be seen as shocking, highlights for Asian hair are becoming more popular with younger generations, especially in Japanese and Chinese cultures.
Let's take a look at celebrities Brenda Song, Lindsay Price, Bai Ling, and Maggie Q. to check out their purple, maroon, brown, and red highlights in Asian hair.
When it comes to adding streaks and highlights, Asian women tend to be at an advantage because their hair is usually normal to oily and can stand up to the drying effects of lightening while maintaining hair health.

I've never seen light brown highlights in Asian hair as sexy as how Lindsay Price wears them. Her locks are not only wavy, but they illuminate the lighter color on each strand to make Lindsay's hair really stand out. This is perfect for women who work in a corporate environment but want to spice up their look.

Always on the wild side, Bai Ling's eclectic style is showcased with her choice of chunky cherry red streaks. This look is great for clubbers and it can be achieved with colored hairspray or pin-on highlights. They look especially great on women with straight, black hair.

Maggie Q's romantic curly hairstyle is enhanced by her medium golden brown ombre highlights. Although there is a large contrast in color between her soft black roots and the lighter golden color at the bottom of her hair, the way the highlights are subtly weaved in with dark brown makes the difference look less dramatic.
