Seems to me most Goths dye their hair black because.. it's black.
.. But what if you live in a country where people naturally have black hair? I say it's no fun at all.
So what does a Filipino Goth (I'm sorry if some of you hate they way I label myself a lot. I think it's because no one else in this part of this archipelago is in the subculture) have to say about black hair?
Tan skin plus black hair doesn't look so pleasing.
99% of the population has black hair, which makes yours not so surprising.
It could sometimes imply that you're still studying.. In a strict school, to be exact.
The ordinary hair color's constantly battling off your uniqueness.
It could also mean you haven't got the money to follow the brunette/redhead/blonde trend.
I'm actually not a naturally-raven-haired girl. My real hair color is dark chestnut, until I used Cream Silk BLACK and coconut oil on it. It was black until I graduated from the strict Catholic school I studied in from Elementary to High School. I dyed my 90 cm locks with copper blonde + chestnut brown + coffee purple to taste that trendy feeling of having vibrant hair. As I walked along the city streets daily with my new hair, I saw a lot of those young bitches and sluts and "It-girls" wearing plunging necklines, minishorts, and/or sleeveless and navel-showing tank tops.. with the same shades as mine, more or less.
I don't know why but I FELT DEGRADED after I thought about it.
So my thoughts about black hair kinda changed after that life-changing realization. Here's what I think as of now, since my hair's now back to black.
My hair isn't "slut-colored".
I am NOT conforming to what the youth of this generation thinks is "beautiful" or "fashionable".
That makes me happy.
Black hair makes me look so "gawff". Haha ♥
It could sometimes make people think I HATE TRENDS.
Black from head to foot makes me look darkly amazing.
Have a batty day, darklings -- raven-haired or not. ♥
