When thinking about how a real live action movie/tv series/video would plan out most of the senshi hair color like Ami, Chibiusa and Yaten could be changed from their anime colors of Blue, Pink and Grey to Black, Strawberry red/blonde and Platinum blonde. As for Michiru when you try to think of replacing her hair color to something someone would have in real life, it doesn't go with anything. Black would be too dark, Brown just makes her look like a Makoto twin and Blonde doesn't suit her at all as Haruka already is blonde. What do you all think? (Same for Sailor Juno too I suppose)

I think Michiru would look really good with black/dark brown hair, personally. She'd need to be really dignified and elegant.

I too feel like Blacky brown would be a good colour, What's wrong with having the characters sharing hair colour though, No one had a problem with Usagi and Minako hairstyles. Personally If they did make another live action series id still want it green.

Agreed but I don't see someone in real life acting that way with dyed green hair.

Your mother colors her hair green?

*Google images* ... I see your point.

@ tutuprincess: Forgive me, but the statement "my mom's fancy" is delightful. :D

Concerning Neptune, what I meant was that her hair stood out because it was wavy (which is something you don't see in animation and even less so in anime) and because it's teal. It does contrast against the other hair colors sharply.

Look at the inners. Of the main five, the only one with a hair color that would not occur in real life without dye is Sailor Mercury, and even her blue hair is relatively subdued. By contrast, a lot of the anime characters of that time and aimed at a similar audience had different colors hair like green hair, purple hair, etc.

What attracted me to Sailor Moon was how it was different from a lot of anime. I love anime hair colors, but I was struck by how the characters seemed to have normal hair in comparison to the crazy colors I had seen in other anime. Thus, when I saw the profile for Neptune, it was a visual reminder that Sailor Moon was an anime.
I agree about Mercury.

Setsuna has chartreuse hair, though she's supposed to be into fashion, so maybe it's not so unlikely that she'd dye her hair a ~crazy~ color.

I’m split on whether it would be dark brown to Black like Rei’s or light brown. I think I’d prefer the latter because it would stick out from everyone else’s and look really good with the waves IMO.
