Blonde Asian Celebrities
Who better to look up to for inspiration than famous blonde Asian women and men? They’re always experimenting and changing up their looks for every music video, performance, movie or TV show. See plenty of ideas for pretty blond hair below!
Blonde Asian Women
Blonde Ombre Asian Hair
If dyeing your entire hair blonde scares you, this look is perfect. You could keep the top half natural and just dye the bottom half blonde to create a bold ombre or a soft sombre look. You could even try a brown to blonde ombre like CL from Kpop group, 2NE1. Or a double ombre with brown roots, blonde lengths and brown tips like Hyolyn. If you’re feeling extremely adventurous, try Japanese artist, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s multi-colored ombre. Or go for a balayage look to up the glam factor.
Asian Strawberry Blonde Hair
Strawberry blonde has got to be one of the most popular blonde colors among Asians. Every K-drama I’ve seen has had atleast one person with this hair color. Blonde Asian women who have gone for this red-toned look are Japanese singer, Kana Nishino, Hyuna from 4Minute and Irene from Red Velvet!
Asian Ash Blonde Hair
Ash blonde is another popular hair color for Asian skin tone.This unique and cool blond hair color, which is a mixture of blonde and grey tones is a serious stand-out. Whether you go for a bob like Amber An and Taeyeon or keep it long and sleek like CL, you’re surely making a statement.
Dark Platinum Hair
Another popular Asian blonde hair color is striking platinum blonde. This color’s for the risk-takers and the rule-breakers. Who said Asians can’t rock light, bright blonde colors? Just look at Soo Joo Park and Krystal Jung!
Blonde Highlights on Asian Hair
Similar to the ombre hair, Asian hair with blonde highlights is another safe route to take for hair coloring newbies. 2NE1’s CL, Koda Kumi and Jamie Chung are nailing this look with a few blonde strands on their natural black Asian hair. Or go for a more bold look with more blonde than black like Jessica from SNSD.
Blonde Asian Hair with Pastel Highlights
Look like a magical fairy with these colorful Asian blonde highlights! Blonde Asian women who are fans of this hairdo are model, Soo Joo Park and Seulgi from Red Velvet. Lilac, peach and mint highlights are popular.
Honey Blonde Asian Hair
Golden blonde hair with brown tones is in my opinion, the best hair color for Asian skin tone. Since most Asians have yellow undertones, this hair color would be a perfect choice. CL from Korean girl group, 2NE1 and Japanese music artist, Ayumi, sure know how to flawlessly nail this look! You can also try a light caramel shade.
Asian Men with Blonde Hair
Men in Asia are just as experimental with their hairstyles as women, if not more. So check out these famous Asian guys with blonde hair for inspiration and ideas! They just prove that even short Asian hair can rock blonde shades.
Black Blonde Hair
For some reason, this trend of having dark, black roots and lighter blonde ends is very common among the blonde Asian men. Not complaining or anything, it’s quite a cool look but can look sloppy when done wrong. But Kim Hyun Joong and L from Infinite are pulling it off with ease!
Blonde Asian Hair with Colorful Highlights
If you thought only women can pull off pastel hair, you thought wrong! Asian celebrities like Oh Sehun and Tae Yang from Jpop group, SF9 are huge fans of this funky hairstyle. Try this attention-grabbing look with blonde hair and a few strands of pretty pastel colors like pink, lavender and mint.
Platinum Blonde Asian Hair
Unlike female Asian celebrities, the male ones are going for a much lighter and prominent platinum blonde hair, which almost looks white. I absolutely love how it looks on G-Dragon and T.O.P from Big Bang.
