Korean short hair often involves bobs with soft layers or textures that give off a laidback vibe. Some Korean short hairstyles have bangs, but even so, these are worn in a chic, relaxed way. Even pixie cuts that take after Korean short hairstyles sport the same soft and dainty vibe.
If you’re fond of watching Korean dramas or you follow certain K-Pop stars, at one point, you might have wanted to sport the same Korean short hair. And if you’re ready to change your ‘do, or you’re simply looking for haircut ideas for women, here are some ideas for you.
Korean Short Hair Pegs We Love
1. Curly Bob with Blunt Bangs
Unleash your inner K-Pop star with a curly bob with blunt bangs. After curling your hair, scrunch it to style and to make it look thick. This hairstyle can also help make thin hair look fuller and bouncier.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let hair fall put a damper on your style. Use Cream Silk Hairfall Defense Conditioner, which helps reduce falling hair for up to 98 percent.
2. Straight Blunt Bob
This classic is also a popular Korean short hair choice. It looks fresh and youthful, especially when you add side-swept bangs. Nail this hairstyle by keeping your hair sleek and smooth.
Editor’s tip: Don’t let frizz and flyaways ruin your look. Use Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner every day to tame frizz and keep your hair straight and smooth.
3. Bob with See-through Bangs
This type of fringe goes well with any Korean short hairstyle! Add texture to your ‘do by making small waves and scrunching your hair for a chic and laidback look.
Editor’s tip: Nail a textured ‘do with a few spritzes of TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Textured Hold Hairspray. It gives your hair a light, invisible hold that helps keep your hair from falling flat.
4. Wavy Bob with Hair Clips
Jump on both the hair clip and Korean hair trends with this hairstyle. To make your look more fun, mix and match different hair clips on your short wavy hair! You can wear this ‘do when going out with your friends on a weekend or when going to a casual and laidback party.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated cut that emphasizes your 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.
6. Wavy Lob
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.
7. Side-parted Bob
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.
8. Wavy Chin-length Bob
9. C-Curl Medium Hair with Curtain Bangs
When your bob has grown from chin-length to medium length, you can give the tips a more pronounced inverted C-shape by using a medium-sized round brush. Position the brush underneath your hair with the blow-dryer on the other side. Blow-dry your hair straight, then curve the brush inwards when you reach the tips. Add curtain bangs to complete the look.
Editor’s tip: Get fresh-smelling, easy-to-style hair by using Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. It has five floral essences that help make your hair five times smoother and more fragrant.
10. Tousled Waves
If you’re having a bad hair day, or if your waves didn’t turn out as expected, just finger-comb your hair to create a tousled look. For this, you don’t even need to perfect your waves. Just keep them loose and casual, and you’ll rock a Korean-chic look.
11. Purple Wavy Bob
A lot of K-Idols sport purple hair, so why not wear this color on your Korean short hair? Complement it with tousled waves and bangs for added oomph.
Editor’s tip: Coloring your hair can cause damage, especially when bleaching is involved. Revive damaged hair by using Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioners. It has keratin-infused serum capsules that penetrate your hair strands and repair damage from within. Use this every day to get healthy, beautiful, and resilient hair.
12. Ash Blonde Blunt Bob
Ash blonde hair color also screams “K-pop Idol,” as it is trendy, chic, and flattering for almost all skin tones. With a hair color like this, paired with a fresh haircut like a blunt bob, you’ll be the definition of #hairgoals.
13. Tapered Bob
Give your bob an interesting shape by giving it tapered ends. This haircut gives your bob a fresh take and sets it apart from blunt and chin-length bobs.
14. Concave Bob
Play up your aegyo (winsome cuteness) factor with a youthful bob. To add volume, wrap sections of your hair around hair rollers, making sure that the tips point inwards. Blow-dry your hair, remove the rollers, and scrunch your hair to make it loose and bouncy.
15. Layered Chin-Length Bob
A chin-length bob that has a bit of an air-dried curl at the ends is another common characteristic of Korean short hair. It’s a great way to style thin hair because the layers and waves keep it from looking limp.
16. Bob with Beach Waves
Complement your wispy bangs with an equally relaxed hairstyle. Beach waves on your medium bob will certainly help you nail a chic Korean look.
17. Peach Lob
Koreans are adept at experimenting with new hair colors and trends. This Korean short hairstyle is a fine example. Try peach, a Korean hair color trend in 2021 that’s both edgy and dainty at the same time, is a good hair color for a lob.
18. Korean Pixie Cut
Korean-style pixie cuts often have hair that just falls right at the ear level. Add a side fringe and blow-dry it to style.
19. Volumized Lob
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!
20. Dip-dyed Lob
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.
21. Shag Haircut
You can also show your individuality with a bright blonde shag—a super hot look that hits two trends at once.
22. Vibrant Bob
Feeling brave? Take the plunge and color your hair with two or more colors! The result is a fun and edgy look that will make you stand out.
23. 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.
24. Blunt Chin-Length Bob with Baby Bangs
25. Bouncy Bob with Center Part
This charmingly simple, low-key bob harks back to the ’90s when symmetry is key. You can have your tips slightly layered so you can shape your hair more easily using a blow dryer.
26. Layered Bob with Wispy Bangs
Brush and blow-dry your layers inwards so your layered bob stays bouncy and in good shape. Add wispy bangs for a chic and laidback look.
27. Chin-Length Bob with Full Bangs
You can also wear full bangs with your Korean short hair. Just make sure to blow-dry your bangs down and straight so they stay on point all day. You can also color your short hair to make it look fresh.
Now, it’s time to pick your favorite Korean short hair look and cop it! Whatever look you choose, make sure it flatters your face shape so you can own it and rock it confidently.
