Back in the day, women were told by elders to follow certain hair styles. Primarily, the reason behind such an action was because elders wanted to keep their daughters ‘decent’. A strange hairstyle and a red lipstick weren’t considered ‘lady-like’ back in the day.
What makes our generation so different from previous ones is how they are ready to accept change in their lifestyles. Regardless of what people around them restrict them to, girls today know how to ace something new. No, this is not about following the western cluster and “fitting in” – it is more about trying something new, something our previous generations wouldn’t have dared to try.
Noor Unnahar – One Of The Most Talented Bloggers In Pakistan Slayin’ In Turquoise Dipped Dye
It is quite common to ask someone with a unique hair-dye regarding how people react when they see them and their hair dye. Parhlo asked Noor the same question and here’s what she shared with us:

No one has ever said anything explicit to my face but they do say ‘baal kharab ho gaye hon gay na?’ ‘Kyun kar liye dye itny ache baal?’ ‘Ha-ha ab purple ker lena.’ to show how uncomfortable they are.”
