    Default What do you like best in your koa?

    There are so many different types of Koa--I thought I'd post a poll to see what type you guys like the most. Of course some of these options can be combined, so just vote on what is the most important to you or vote for multiple entries (this poll allows you to choose multiple categories--you are not limited to one).

    Wow, those are some tough choices. I love Koa of all types, but I'd have a set that I like best, which is very blonde in color with really fine tight curl, and under finish will be a beautiful orange color. It actually looks lighter than most mahoganies, but oh that orange... I love it.
    I'm not sure if that qualifies it as "white" or "blonde" though.

    You can vote for more than one choice if there are multiple things you like best

    Yes. How are you defining "white" vs. "blonde"?

    Yes, Blonde or White w/ tight curls would definitely do it for me. I remember seeing pink koa but looked more blonde or white to me...Instead of blonde, I like honey colored koa.

    Ah, but I didn't realize and can't modify my vote. Still, I chose "Blonde".

    Gentlemen prefer Blondes, right?

    You can vote for both. But here's an example of white koa.white-koa-front.jpg

    Unfortunately for your poll (or, more accurately, for my ability to respond to it), there's some overlap among categories. If I like dark koa with some sort of curl, do I respond by selecting dark koa or the curl of my choice?

    I understand I can vote for both. I was asking how you were defining "white" vs. "blonde" or in other words - how are they different?
