For those who aren't familar with the curse that is asian hair. It means that your hair is stubbornly straight, stronger than steel, and nearly impossible to style into anything other than a bowl cut or buzz cut.
Firstly, the side of my hair grows straight out rather than molding to my head which looks quite weird after about a week (especially since I have significantly more hair on my left side than right). I tried trimming it every so often, but it becomes quite a pain since it grows so much faster than the rest of my hair.
As a few weeks go by without a trim, the rest of my hair grows straight outwards resulting in what I like to refer to as the asian fro.
Letting my hair grow out to longer lengths results in something similar to that of the little girl from 'the ring.'
Lastely, I yearn for the ability to grow a grizzly beard, but I am cursed with genetics that makes this an almost impossible task.
All I want is a hairstyle that is somewhat stylish, easy to maintain and one in which I can wake up with it looking half decent.
Any ideas would greatly be appreciated!
