bright red, pink, green, purple, blue, etc. unnatural colors  :huh: looking like straight out of an anime

 

why has this become a trend? do you find it attractive?

I automatically think attention-whore when I see it, whether that's a fair assertion to make or not

I have UV reactive red hair. It's crazy bright and I love it. Unnatural coloured hair has been around for decades but first got very popular in the punk era of the 70s. It's not a new trend lol.

I find it very attractive on myself and others. I'm certainly not an attention whore. I hide behind it if anything.

it's 2017 people can do what they want with their hair
and imo thinking attention whore when you see that is kind of an outdated approach
people are gonna do what they want, that's like saying you got a car for attention so people would look at you because you have a car. or you got a dog so people would see that you have a dog and notice you. no, you got a car because you wanted/needed one, and you got a dog because you wanted one. not so other people would notice you through it.

pretty sure people who dye their hair are doing it to make themselves happy not bc they want to whore attention.

it looks cool on most people if it's done well.

It's been a trend for a while.
I think it can look really nice, if it's done properly. As the above poster said, it's a form of self expression. I'd love to give it a try some time, but I don't think I'd be able to pull it off and I do really like my natural hair color, so I'm worried about messing it up.

I love unnatural hair colors

 

I have seen some bad dye jobs, but as long as you do it properly it looks really good and it's not an attention whore thing

I had uv pink hair for years then got rid of it for career reasons... Missed it so much that a few years later it has returned.

I'm not bothered what colour someone else's hair is but I find my pink helps with my depression.

Definitely not an attention whore though it took me a while to brave going outside with neon hair again lol.

I wouldn't do it just because I'm nowhere near confident enough to pull it off, but I think it looks nice on other people!  A ton of people I know have colored hair, and my mom has this one friend (she's probably in her 40s) with gorgeous bright purple hair, I'm so jealous

Trends resurface after a few years, plus a lot of teenagers do it when theyre finding their style. Or older people trying to make themselves look young. plus for some its just a preference.

i want to get my hair dyed with a load of different pastel colours at once cause i think it looks cool as fuck. but i dont have the money for it cause i need to grow my hair & its gonna cost a bomb lol
No more silly gifs cause photobucket is a fun killer.

Tell that to the people who used to crush bugs and dye their hair with them thousands of years ago.

It's not my cup of tea, but I don't care too much if someone else does it. Done well, it can look really neat.

Sometimes I color my hair when I'm really stressed or instead of cutting.

Just want to point out that neon =/= unnatural colours.

 

Neon air has been around for a while now, but I've seen it a lot more lately after Guy Tang posted his neon/glow in the dark works. I love how neon coloured hair looks, but wouldn't have it done because it seems like a hassle to keep the colour looking nice.

 

But I've had my hair dyed in unnatural colours for a long time and I don't give a flying fuck if you think it's attention whoring (and I doubt anyone cares what you think about their cool af hair).

It's not a fair assertion. Hair is a form of self-expression. I've never done a full head of color but I love highlights. If you don't, don't have them. I've never looked at anyone WITHOUT colors and thought "look at that doormouse" lol I've never judged anyone with colors either.

Thank you, Doge.

OP: I'm a kind, introverted person with my own style. I am not a whore and I received more attention when I was blonde.
