You gotta have blue hair

A lot of Japanese anime characters are known for unnatural hair colors. This girl, for example.

But at your typical Japanese drug store, there is actually quite a lack of variation in the hair dye that is available. It tends to mostly be shades of black and dark brown.

But among young people, strange orange-y colors and bleached hair is popular and one often sees old ladies who dye their hair purple.

When I was on the train the other day, I saw a fairly young person with purple hair and was a bit surprised. I wonder how common that is…

Purple hair, pink skirt, yellow framed glasses and orange shoes. What a colorful person!
