Japanese Hairstyles We Love
1. Sleek and Straight Japanese Hairstyles
The sleek and straight hair is one of the most beloved Japanese hairstyles. This is a great way to showcase your long and healthy locks. You can part your hair in the middle or clip back a section of hair to show your forehead for a cleaner, more polished look. Others resort to keratin smoothing treatment to achieve this look but do your research before heading to the salon.
Editor’s tip: Get smoother hair by using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo daily. It has KERA10 Protein Complex that goes up to 10 layers deep in your hair to nourish it. It gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash, and these include making your hair smooth, soft, and shiny, calming frizz, taming flyaways, providing heat protection, and detangling your hair.
Pair TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner for best results. This conditioner has KERA10 Protein Complex and oleo serum to nourish and moisturize your hair deeply.
2. Apple Cut
If you’re into Japanese haircut trends, try the apple cut. Its layers give your hair bounce and volume, and its shape gives you a fresh look.
3. Medium Bob With Bangs
This Japanese haircut for females ends a little past your jawline. It’s short but it still gives you some room for styling. Give your hair movement by blow-drying while brushing the tips inward with a round brush. Then, style your fringe with your fingers for a relaxed, wispy look.
4. Textured Pixie Cut
It’s fierce and edgy. Get this Japanese haircut, and you’re bound to turn heads wherever you go. You can even get brown or blonde highlights to define your pixie cut’s layers and texture.
5. Straight, Blunt Bangs and Long Hair
Wearing blunt bangs is such an iconic look for Japanese hairstyles especially if you have sleek and straight hair. It’s perfect for a night out with friends at a high-end bar. If you want a more casual look, you can add a bit of texture to your hair while keeping your blunt bangs straight.
6. Wavy Lob
This equally chic cousin of the bob hairstyle gives you plenty of styling possibilities. One of these is by creating a wavy lob. First, apply mousse on damp hair to give it volume, then blow dry your hair. Make soft waves using a curling iron. Don’t forget to apply some heat protectant on your hair before styling to avoid heat damage
7. Long and Layered Japanese Hairstyle
Having layered hair is like having different hair lengths all at once. Make sure your hair is free from flyaways and frizz. Iron the tips of your hair inwards to give your hair beautiful, curvy ends. If you have bangs, iron them as well so they rest beautifully on your forehead. When done, scrunch your hair to show off your layers. This can also be a great ‘do if you have naturally fine hair to add an illusion of volume.
Editor’s tip: Frizz is a common hair problem in humid countries like ours. For this, we recommend Dove Straight & Silky Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo. It has the combined power of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients that instantly repair damage, deeply nourish and protect your hair, and leave it extra beautiful. This shampoo also has Amino Essence, which boosts hair health and helps nourish your hair up to the core, making it extra straight, smooth, and shiny.
8. Brushed-Back Curls
If you have natural curls, lucky you! But if you don’t, these steps will teach you how to achieve curly hair. Feel like a modern, empowered woman with this hairstyle. This is also a perfect party look. And instead of letting your curls cascade down your back, put your hair on the side to make your hair look sexy.
9. Messy Chin-Length Bob
The messy look is perfect for when you’re running out of time to prep in the morning or if you want a #wokeuplikethis look. To style, blow-dry while scrunching your hair with your fingers to give your locks texture and volume. You can also use a flat iron to make shallow waves on your short hair.
10. Updo With Full Bangs
You can also put your hair up. If you don’t know how to create updos, you can start with a simple ballerina bun. You can play around with this hairstyle by loosening some sections of your hair so they don’t rest too tightly on your scalp, giving you a more laid-back look. Complement your bun with blunt bangs to complete this Japanese-inspired look.
11. Double-Bun Updo
This quirky Japanese hairstyle for females consists of two buns. To create this hairstyle, gather a section of your hair from your hairline up to your crown and put this in a bun. Then, tie the rest of your hair into a low ponytail, but don’t pull your hair all the way through to create a low, messy bun.
12. Half Updo With Wispy Bangs
13. Side Ponytail With Bangs
If blunt bangs are too high-maintenance for you, go for side bangs to frame your face while sporting your favorite hairstyle. Even a simple side ponytail can have more impact when you jazz it up with side bangs.
14. Textured Bob With a Side Part
You can also go for a textured bob if you don’t want to go all out with your waves. Create these shallow waves on your short hair for added texture using a flat iron, then simply scrunch your hair to style. Don’t forget to part your hair on one side to give your hair more volume.
15. Big Textured Waves
If sleek and straight hair is all about looking polished, a long textured wavy down ‘do is all about creating a chic and laid-back look. You can curl random sections of your hair and just finger-comb your strands to finish. This look goes well with a medium brown hair color like cinnamon or ash brown, so you might want to try these hues, too.
16. Vibrant Blonde Hair With Bangs
Turn heads and make a statement with bold, blonde hair! Pair it with a short haircut with bangs to create a quirky look that’s full of personality.
Editor’s tip: Bleaching can extremely damage your hair. But don’t worry! Use Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner, which has keratin-infused serum capsules that penetrate your strands to repair your hair from within. With system use, it leaves your hair recovered, resilient, and beautiful in just one minute!
17. Half Ponytail with Bangs
You can do this hairstyle on both medium-length and long hair. Just tie the upper section of your hair into a high half ponytail and style your bangs with your fingers. You can make your half ponytail a bit messy to add texture and character to your whole look.
18. Wrapped High Ponytail
Make your half ponytail unique by wrapping a ribbon or a rope hair accessory around it. To create this Japanese hairstyle, tie your half ponytail close to your hairline before wrapping it. Easy, right?
19. Blunt Lob With Baby Bangs
If you’ve had long hair all your life, getting this Japanese haircut for females can be the makeover you didn’t know you needed. Nail it with shiny hair—a drop of hair serum can do the trick!
20. Short Hair Half Updo With Side Bangs
Look chic but laid-back while working from home with this hairstyle. And if you have naturally wavy hair, say hello to instant texture! Got overgrown bangs? Finger-comb them towards the side of your face.
21. Messy Layered Lob
If you’re worried about your hair looking flat and limp, get a layered, Japanese haircut. A layered lob is a pretty manageable length. Just scrunch your hair and embrace the messy look!
22. Down ‘Do With a Wide Headband
In a rush? Wear a wide headband, and you’re all set! It works on any hair length. A wide headband also keeps hair off your face so you can concentrate better on your tasks. You can even use old scarves as your headband.
23. Bucket Hat on Long Japanese Hairstyles
Not in the mood to style your hair? Wear a bucket hat to create a casual, street-chic look.
24. Half Updo with Scrunchie
Do you find hair elastics or hair ties too plain? Use a scrunchie to tie your hair. Scrunchies come in different colors and patterns, so there’s bound to be one that suits your personality. It also adds a ’90s touch to your half updo or ponytail.
25. Short Hair With Long Sides
Get a different kind of short hair by deliberately leaving the front sections of your hair longer than the rest. If you want to see if this Japanese haircut suits you, you can put your hair in a low ponytail or low bun while leaving the front sections loose.
