Anime is a vast entertainment genre where almost everything goes. Superpowers? Check. Getting teleported to another world? Check. Magic? Why not? With so many possibilities, one can never know what to expect from a series just by looking at the title. Anime has no limits. It is only limited by one’s imagination, and the whole world of the animated series is only the consequence of that imagination. Often, anime is about fighting in some fantasy world, but besides their battles and demons, you will also find romance, love, and even friendship!
However, if there is something all TV anime have in common is the unusual hair colors. Here it is normal to have bright blue, pink, white, or even multi-colored hair. If you are an avid anime connoisseur and a hair color nerd during the same time, then this article is for you. In this article, we will be presenting the anime girls that have the most amazing white hair. You’ve probably heard the phrase “When she was young, she had hair as black as midnight” at least once in an anime. This is a reminder that white hair is one of the rarest hair colors in anime.
Nearly all TV anime we watched as kids featured characters with colorful (and weird) hair colors – black, green, and blue were very common. But they were just colors and not white. That said, there are many white-haired female characters with diverse personalities. Following are our picks:
WARNING: Some of the entries may have spoilers for those who haven’t watched the series.
Chloe’ dApchier – The Case Study of Vanitas
Introduced in the second season of the series, Chloe appears as an old vampire with the appearance of a young girl. However, she has a mature personality, and while she may appear fierce to some, she is kind and loving to those close to her. Her silvery-white hair and her mysterious personality have earned her the title of the Silver Witch of the Forest.
Mirajane Strauss – Fairy Tail
Mirajane is a bright young woman with a bubbly and somewhat clumsy personality. She is shown in the Fairy Tail guild when Lucy first joins as a member. Mira has a dark backstory; however, that does not stop her from being compassionate and an older-sister figure to all the guild members.

Siesta – The Detective is Already Dead
We have a detective on our list next. Siesta is the main protagonist and self-proclaimed great detective in the series. Her chin-length white hair is styled as a bob. Combined with her cerulean eyes, she gives off an aura of a mysterious young girl. While her actual age, name, and origins are unknown, she is renowned for her case-solving abilities and beauty.
Sophia Ascart – Reincarnated as a Villainess
White hair may be beautiful in our eyes, but not every character has received the same treatment. Sophia Ascart is the daughter of the prime minister in the fantasy world of Fortune Lover. Despite her nobility, she is shunned constantly by the world due to her seemingly “ghostly hair” and “blood-red” crimson eyes.
As a result, she is shown to be reserved and quiet at the beginning. However, after opening up to the protagonist, Catarina Claes, she soon reveals a much more dynamic personality. She loves reading books and has a strong passion for romance novels, which she shares with Catarina.
Lisanna Strauss – Fairy Tail

Both sisters have flowing white hair, and while Mira has her long hair down, Lisanna is always shown with a shorter haircut. She is one of the first friends Natsu makes after he joins the guild. As a recurring character, she played a major role in Natsu’s character development and the Edolas Arc.
Yamato – One Piece
