Korean Short Hair Styles for Inspiration
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.
Editor’s tip: Spice up your ‘do by parting your hair on the side and tame flyaways with TRESemme Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray–You’d be amazed by how this simple styling trick can change your look!
This short hairstyle is perfect for ladies with thin, wavy strands. It’s low-maintenance that makes you look chic without any effort. Ask your hairstylist for some highlights to achieve the illusion of volume.
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!
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.
Choppy blonde pixie
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.
Editor’s tip: Maintain your dye job by using gentle hair products that are specially formulated for colored hair like Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner.
Bob with side-swept long bangs
This haircut gives the illusion of a longer, slimmer face–no wonder it’s such a classic style! Long bangs swept to the side helps sculpt your features further, while cinnamon hair color adds warmth to Asian skin.
Bold and blunt bob
