Asian Kawaii hair styles which have recently become quite popular, originate from Japan. The word kawaii is Japanese for cute and refers to a culture that sprang up around the 1970's that focused on cuteness in a variety of aspects of life including clothing, entertainment, and personal appearance. Kawaii hair styles vary widely with some characterized by a very soft, flowing look featuring large waves or curls at the end of the hair, while others feature short chunky pieces cut in an asymmetrical style that require lots of styling gel to hold everything in place.
If you would just like to experiment with Kawaii hair styles without making the actual cut there are many different stores that sell Kawaii wigs. Kawaii wigs are available in a large variety of lengths and styles and most merchants will allow you to choose your own color for the wig. Streaks of unusual colors (think pink or electric blue) are another characteristic frequently associated with Kawaii hair styles. Opposed to actually dyeing your hair, you could pick up a few colored clip-on hair extensions to get the look without the work and possible damage you could do to your hair with dye. Kawaii hair styles are cute and trendy and may be just right for you.
If a Kawaii hair style is something that you find attractive it is a good idea to go to a salon that specializes in this look since the initial cut is very important to maintaining this hair style. Having said that, in certain areas a Kawaii specialty salon may be hard to find, so your next best option is to go online and find one of the hundreds of pictures of Kawaii hair styles online and take it to your local hair salon. Make sure to choose a cut that goes with your face shape as Kawaii hair styles are definitely not for everyone and most cuts require a great deal of maintenance in order to look nice. Another thing to keep in mind about Kawaii hair styles, they usually look nicer if you hair is thin to medium thickness. Hair that is very thick is harder to maintain in this type of hair style.
