Here are ten surprising Asian trends that you may find weird, or may inspire you in a new fashion trend:
1. Yeaba Teeth “ Double Tooth” (Japan)
Add temporarily or permanently cap the upper canine teeth to make them stick out.
Perhaps the image above is a good example of what you think yeaba teeth look like. I know I did (giggles).
No fair, if you put it on a cute girl of course it will look cute.
What are you thinking so far? Would you do it?
2. Fake Braces (China, Thailand & Indonesia)
DYI kit to look like you have braces so you appear wealthy.

Want to see a couple more? Sure!
There are a vast assortment of colors, different shapes, sizes and more.
3. Lensless Glasses

How about a bright green pair?
Perhaps on a fella?
Maybe not so much?
4. Aegyo Sal “Eye Smile” (South Korea)

Just for kicks.
6. The Face-Kini (China)
