It has exceedingly become common to dye one’s hair in Japan. Both young and old are into experimenting with their hair. Japanese girls may be known for having long, jet black hair in movies, but you will actually see otherwise if you visit the country. You might be even surprised to see many people, especially women, sporting colorful hair with highlights. The most common hair color is brown, but you’ll also come across people with pink, green, blue, or yellow hair.
