Some of you may know that I put way too much time on my hair. Like way way too much… I managed to get it white with undue effort and lately I found the perfect silver dye to give it just a bit of metallic sheen. It’s an ongoing process that demands way more effort than it’s worth. As a result, I’ve become ay more aware of anime ladies that rock my hair colour.
And now, I ant to share this unhealthy obsession with all of you. Nothing too deep this week! These are 5 anime ladies who inspire my hair colour goals!
Shiro is at the bottom of the list because her hair is not exactly white, then again, the colour scheme of NGNL is so amazingly technicolor that it’s arguable. In many ways Shiro’s unicorn hair with its light blue and soft pink iridescent sheen was my base inspiration when I first drained all the colour out of my hair.
Now you figure a sharp girl like me would have realized at some point that these are not colours actually achievable by common mortals but gosh darn it, I tried! And I will keep trying. It’s absolutely beautiful!
To me, Nao’s hair always looked like a very pale beige. A beautiful yet still almost natural looking colour. But she’s often described as having either white or silver hair. This is the exact colour I would want to make my hair look a bit more natural, but you would be surprised just how difficult it is to achieve.
I have come to accept that this is the type of hair you have to be born with, but I remain extremely jealous!
3) Kanade Tachibana from Angel Beats
It helps that Kanade is a pretty cool character all around. And you can’t deny, her looks are striking. She remains a pretty popular cosplay option for the exact reason. And one of her signatures if that long beautiful angel white hair!
I remember seeing an image of this character before I even knew who she was, and the hair had me mesmerized. At the time I dismissed it as something impossible to achieve without a wig and although I still need some help with the length, I’m happy to say I almost got the colours down!
2) Emilia from reZero
I’m not all that familiar with best girl debates but from the little I know the reZero fandom is all about Rem. Trust me, I get it. Although Ram has a little something something as well…. This said, as far as hair colours go, I was always an Emilia fangirl.
Soft flowing silver hair that gleams in the light and sparkles with every movement. It really does look regal and brings out her noble background. I have had hair every colour you can think of, but I gotta admit, there’s something just oddly empowering about silver. Makes me feel in charge. Does not actually make me in charge but baby steps!
Newer readers of this blog may not know of my deep love for Hunter x Hunter. In short: I have a deep love for Hunter x Hunter. More specifically, I was flabbergasted by the Chimera Ants arc and Neferpitou may be my favourite character of that arc. Everything about this character fascinated me. The diligence, brutality, efficiency and unwavering purpose. This is how you write an unambiguous antagonist while keeping them interesting. I know I was supposed to be afraid of Meruem, and I was…But every time Neferpitou cam onscreen, I held my breath a little.
And their character design really came into play here. Now I know that I am putting Neferpitou on a top list of white haired ladies which is unfair as the character is not clearly a lady but it would be a lie if I didn’t put them on top of this list. This is the character that actually made me take the plunge (along with certain a Danganronpa troll) and to this day I emulate Neferpitou’s style whenever I can. Amazing character with amazing hair!
There you have it! These are anime characters I am currently emulating as far as hair goes. Eventually I am going to get very fed up of all the upkeep and have to figure out my next colour. To be honest, it’s pretty amazing that the office let’s me get always with this at all, maybe they think my hair actually went silver white because of a big scare and they don’t want to bring it up in case I’m traumatized. Let’s see if I can convince them it went blue cause I ate something weird….
Do you have a favourite white or silver hair character? It can be a boy. There are tons of awesome ones to chose from! Or do you have a suggestion for my next hair goal. Anything but jet black is fine. I love black hair but it looks horrible on me…
