Asian hair is very strong and the most sought after, most expensive when sold. This hair type is so resilient, it is what’s usually used on mannequins like that used by cosmetology students who will need to practice and perform many hair techniques and chemical applications. Other hair types that would also be found to be as strong as Far Eastern hair would be Mid-Eastern, Indian and Native American hair types.
Again, hair cuts done at home for older children may not always be a grand idea since straight, coarse hair is very unforgiving of mistakes. Here again, it’s best to pay a few dollars for a licensed barber or stylist to give a good haircut then to try to be a kitchen beautician.
