Why Brunette is Better

So… I was walking through my local Shoppers Drug Mart the other day and I overheard some girls talking about why their blonde hair is better than their Chinese friends’ “boring brown hair”. I decided instead of confronting these girls in person (lol), I would put my opinion on the matter out there on the internet where it can be read by anyone.

NO HAIR IS BETTER THAN THE OTHER. So can we please just stop with this idea that one is? But in response to those girls here is why brown hair is “better”.

  1. Brunettes usually don’t have to spend hours getting bleached in highlights because our natural tones are cool AF.
  2. Each shade of brown is unique and tend to have tons of different colours and undertones in it
  3. We spend WAY less money at the hairdresser… DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH HIGHLIGHTS COST??? RIP NO. Just a trim and blow dry pls.
  4. If we want to go blonde we 100% can because it’s easier to gradually lighten your hair
  5. Brunette hair is naturally super shiny and glossy looking
  6. In specific response to “BORING BROWN”…. um just rude. Brunette hair is not boring
  7. To those of us with South, South East, and/or East Asian Heritage our BRUNETTE hair is super strong, resilient, and usually grows really fast. We can go from a lob to a medium- long layered look within a season, that should be considered a super-power.
  8. Clip in hair extensions are way easier to match to brunette hair

But seriously, can we stop the nonsense surrounding why one person, race, colouring, hair type, skin type, nation, political view etc. is better than the others? It’s seriously just an opinion and instead of using the opinion to better the world we are all spending time tearing others down.

Spread positivity and happiness

    I totally agree that all hair colors are beautiful! I love being a brunette, but sometimes my gray hairs make me wish I was blond so I could hide them better, lol.

      I also love being brunette! I went blonde for a year and a bit but got tired of the upkeep and not totally looking like myself! At the end of the day nothing suits me better than my dark hair and it’s a symbol of my Chinese heritage!

    Hi Steph,

    I can relate to this post so much! Sorry you had to overhear a conversation like that! :o(

    As an Asian girl myself I have been coloring my hair for ages. However, I do go back to my natural brown/black at times when I get tired of having to go to the hairstylist all the time and dropping a fortune!

    It all depends on the person and how they want to express themselves.

    Great post!
