Albinism is a genetic condition causing the lack of pigment in skin, hair, and eyes. Albino people usually have extremely pale skin and light blonde hair, making them stand out from the rest.
While some albino women embrace inclusion and natural beauty, others seek experimentation. The results, however, may be rather unpredictable, if not utterly disappointing. The following video that went viral and has been reposted by many different channels is just the case.
Even though albino hair lacks melanin, it still absorbs dye like any other hair color. Going brunette may sound appealing, but success is not guaranteed. The viral albino girl’s transformation reveals the downside of moving from lighter to darker hair tones. The hairstylist tones down light blonde hair, hoping to create a smooth transition from near-white to brown. The technique doesn’t pay off, and that’s when hair color spray enters the game (and completely loses it). The white peek-a-boo streaks after all the toning and spraying speak for themselves.
Fake tan, lashes, blue eyeliner, and heavy blush seem to wash the model out. She loses her unique albino features and looks way older than she actually is. Gone are beautiful white eyelashes and eyebrows. All hidden behind the countless layers of makeup. It seems the makeup artist has combined all possible makeup trends on the girl’s face instead of enhancing natural beauty and celebrating inclusion.
The final look left many people frustrated, to say the least. “I thought they were just dying her hair and then they proceeded to paint her entire body,” one Instagram user comments. Yeah, we feel you, girl.
All the fuss around brunette hair transformation for albino girl is not so much about color choice but blending into the crowd. In many cultures, albinism is akin to disability or a disease, so albino people often seek acceptance. The Dutch albino blogger Fleur Van Der Ven has been struggling with self-image all her life.
She dyed her hair brown at the age of 12 because of bullying. “I really thought that was gonna make me normal,” the blogger shares. Now, her goal is to talk other albino people out of concealing their condition and just be themselves. The trick is to choose the right hairstyle and makeup to complement your original hair tone and complexion without transforming yourself into a different person.
