Bani J, known for her bold choices, was asked if she had ever faced judgments due to her vibrant hair colors. In response, she shared her nonchalant perspective, stating, “Not to my knowledge. No one’s ever confronted me with an absolute wrong judgment of character.” However, she acknowledged the inherent human tendency to form opinions and added, “I’m sure people have & do judge me though – as is human nature. I just don’t really care that much as it’s not in my control if they think having pastel pink hair makes a person careless or that somehow entails that one is unprofessional.”

In a society that often imposes rigid norms, Bani J recognizes that women, in particular, face judgment for deviating from the expected. She says that this is not the only thing people judge women for. “People just don’t like seeing women doing things differently or doing different things – it scares them,” she observed candidly. She went on to describe women as “majestic-looking divine beasts” and explained that when they embrace their individuality, especially through unconventional choices like vibrant hair colors, it can be perceived as threatening.
