The best thing about this style is that looks good on any face shape.

Who doesn’t love a long perm on your favorite idol’s hair? We love this look, especially when the haircut has uneven layers. Use a pomade to style the hair to create definition. Try Dove Men + Care Polishing Pomade to add hold and shine without the crunchy feel.

2. Korean Middle Part

Another great Korean style for mid-length hair is the middle part. This look is perfect if you have symmetrical facial features and want to enhance them. You can style it to look super slick, with some strands tucked away behind your ears or leave it loose for a carefree, cool feel.

3. Blonde Chin-length Haircut

Edgy and rebellious, the Korean mullet haircut is a super stylish pick. You can experiment with the longer strands at the top and give them extra volume or keep them straight for a more clean look.

6. Undercut Korean Haircut

The fade detail on this undercut is sublime.

Since Asian hair is often naturally straight and thick, an undercut or French crop is a great option. The contrast between the shaved and thick hair on the top is a great look for this hair type. Use a comb to sweep the hair on top away from your face and to add some height to your style.

7. Side-Swept Layered Hair
