Dark Haired Nudes

Nude hair has long been popular, particularly among Black women. Nude colors offer an easy solution that works well with various complexions and undertones – plus their soft shade flatters nearly everyone!

But as more and more people adopt a nude look, it is important to remember that its hue varies with every individual. Nude hair is designed to mimic natural shades; therefore, its hue should mirror individual characteristics and undertones in a way that feels unique to each individual.

Scholars have observed that Riza Abbasi’s Reclining Nude recalls iconic European depictions of nudism while adding an Asian aesthetic. Figures in The Lovers–a satirical courtly scene–feature plump, pale faces with smooth contours like those found in Reclining Nude; both figures bear characteristic Persian moon-face types that could fit either gender role and further blur gender boundaries.

Riza wears a similar shawl when she reclines nudely in The Lovers; it frames her vulva and emphasizes her pubescent body hair, lending an air of sexual tension between these characters. This visual cue emphasizes their sexual tension.
