TRADITIONAL ASIAN HAIRSTYLES
Traditional Asian hairstyles are still worn today by many cultures for celebrations, dancing, and other events.
Now that people can easily afford hair accessories and jewels, beautiful traditional Asian hairstyles are not limited to the Royal family. Many more choices of fabrics and colors are available other than expensive silks and precious stones. Usually they wear flowers, beads, gold and stone jewelry right on their heads. People are free to teach each other hairstyling and haircutting in schools and at home. And with the help of the internet, these customs can be taught to anyone, anywhere.
Traditional hairstyles are popular for Asian wedding receptions as part of a secondary outfit. Many people still celebrate weddings traditionally with the tea pouring and the expensive silk outfits. It is an important custom for Chinese families. They also make good for costumes and traditional chinese dancing. It is definitely easier today with all the hairspray and fake hair we can buy at the dollar store.
People don't typically walk around with these traditional Asian hairstyles anymore. Unlike what you've seen on television or in the movies, most of Asia is living in developed contemporary societies with similar tastes of you and I. We've come a long way from these reserved and simple hairstyles. Quite frankly, many younger Asians resent these looks but every now and then you'll see it at the Chinese opera or dance performance.
