I've noticed a trend with Ameba Pico. And I'm not talking about all the unscheduled maintenance breaks.
It's about wigs. Have you ever paid attention to the colours of wigs in Pico. Usually they're always dirty blond. Or as Ameba calls the colour, /bg. I'm guessing that stands for beige ... but I don't know anyone who has beige hair. It's blond, redhead, brunette or raven. Beige doesn't exists as a natural hair colour. It's what you paint your walls.
I took a look back at all of the wig product releases since January. The blond options come out far more often than anything else.

If you prefer to have black, brown or red hair Ameba is not giving you many options. I don't know about you, but I prefer to not be a blond.
Another thing about wigs ... most of the non-blond (black, brown or red) wigs require you to spin Premium Gacha for a chance to win them. WTF? Wigs shouldn't be part of any AG campaign. Players should be able to buy them ... period ... hands down ... end of story.
Whether this is simply lazy community developers or Ameba's part or a bad case of Eurocentrism I'm not sure. All I know is it's annoying. And I can't be the only one who thinks this.
I don't want more yellow, blue or pink hair. I want to see more natural blacks, browns and reds!
