Now this is definitely a contentious top 5 list.
At any rate, this topic was suggested to me by shaddowcat99, who claims she’s new to anime but still writes fun and engaging posts. She started up a new weekly feature, The Chuckle and Chortle Collection, and it’s got some good stuff there. Check it out!
As for the actual list, well, these are just the anime hairstyles I like. Throw in some shallow and superficial reasons and I guess we’re set with a controversial top 5 list, yay! Alright, here goes!
That’s it. Let’s wrap it up. No other hairstyle can win. This list is over.
Wait, I have to mention 4 other arbitrary characteristics that are related to hair which I like before I can call it quits? And I have to say why I like ponytails? That’s hard work.
Hmm. I guess I just think tomboys are great!
Popular during the Heian period and Meiji Revolution, women who wear this particular hair style are often associated with the upper classes
and are slaves to tradition.
The hairstyle in question involves perfectly level bangs (hehe, bangs make a girl look 10 years younger), side locks that end at the cheek or shoulder level, and long, flowing hair.
Refined girls are great! Elegant girls are also wonderful! Same with bossy girls! Girls with hime cuts tend to be fall under at least of those aforementioned categories!
They’re just so sleek and underslated but are somehow loud because of said simplicity. Wow! I also like girls with medium (and short, on that matter) length hair, but bob cuts are like the queen (and provide a very tangible mental image), so that’s why I specifically mention this particular hairstyle.
I did mention and think that bob cuts look sleek, but messier bob cuts are cool, too.
…when the two hairstyles are placed side by side, the bob cut looks a lot like a shorter hime cut…
Suehara Kyouko Cut
I don’t even know how to describe her hairstyle with a single phrase but I love it. She has a high ruffled top while her side locks loop up and behind just to be tied up in a cute mini-ponytail. It’s a bit convoluted, admittedly, yet I adore it all the same. Maybe because I adore the mahjong player, too.
Gimme some of that bed head, please.
Yes, these girls go and pull off that unkempt look that makes it look like they don’t care. Because they probably don’t. And that’s okay.
Or maybe they’re super heavy sleepers. Maybe they’re constantly tardy because they’re always sleeping in. At any rate, they can do and should keep doing what they want because messy hair is moe.
Sorry, looks like fan favourites, twin tails and drills, didn’t make the list. Maybe next time.
What would be on your list of favourite anime hairstyles? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments section below.
