Style it up like your favorite K-pop stars! Here are some of our favorite Korean short hair styles that you can try.

In the not-so-distant past, the only hairstyles that really mattered involved long, straight, dark hair. That’s not so much the case now, with girls around the continent experimenting with distinctive styles, lengths and colors. This was amplified by the South Koreans’ fearless adoption of shorter haircuts. Our favorite Korean pop stars, actresses and influencers are sporting chic bobs and daring pixies with ease. Take a page from your favorite K-idols and go for one of these short Korean hairstyles on your next trip to the salon!

If you’re looking for a sophisticated cut that emphasizes your V-line (jawline), this short hairstyle should do the trick. Long bangs define your features and add volume to your ‘do. Have it trimmed often so it grows out gracefully.

Thinking of chopping it short after years of sporting long locks? A lob–the longer version of the bob–should dispel any fears you have about going for the big chop. Use a curling iron to style your hair in waves for special events.

A bob is a classic cut that can help you get that aegyo (cute) look. It frames your face gorgeously and makes your cheeks look slimmer, making it a great choice for girls with round faces.

The secret to a bouncy lob like this is volume–lots of it. Yes, that Instagram worthy look needs a lot of volume. It makes the style more defined and so gorgeous!

 

TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray

 

Editor’s tip: To achieve this ‘do that’s worthy of your favorite ulzzang (best face), spray your hair with TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray before blow-drying it with a round brush, focusing on the ends.

K-pop idols (even the guys!) are huge fans of wildly colored hair. It adds to their personality, making them stand out from the crowd. Dip your toes into the look by dyeing just the ends of your lob a different hue–we love how this girl’s vibrant emerald tips contrast with the rest of her hair.

Blonde is an unexpected yet welcome color for Asian hair. Honey shades are extremely flattering on Asian complexions, while platinum and ash blonde tones add a daring touch to your look. A choppy cut, like this pixie, ensures you’ll stand out from any crowd.
