6. Wavy Lob

If you want hair that falls just above your shoulders, go for a lob, the longer version of the bob. Use a curling iron to style your hair in waves for special events.

7. Side-Parted Bob

Korean Short Hair Styles – 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

The charm of the wavy bob is just too hard to miss. The curls give more body to the classic bob, making it a must-try chic Korean short hair look.

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.

Bottle of Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo

Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Get fresh-smelling, easy-to-style hair by using Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo. It has the new Activ-Infusion, a blend of oils, vitamins, and proteins that protect your hair from damaging factors like heat, humidity, and pollution. It also makes your hair smooth and fragrant, thanks to its flower oils.

10. Aesthetic Korean Short Hair With 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 messy but aesthetic Korean short hair look.

11. Purple Wavy Korean Short Hair

Asian woman with short purple hair with bangs

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.

Tube of Dove Keratin Repair Conditioner

Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner

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 Conditioner. 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

13. Tapered Bob

A chin-length bob that has air-dried curls at the tips 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 that’s both edgy and dainty at the same time. It’s a youthful hair color, so try it on your 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 Korean Short Hair

The secret to a bouncy lob like this is volume. Bounce and movement on your hair make for an Instagram-worthy look, so give your lob a blowout before snapping hair selfies.

20. Dip-Dyed Korean Short Hair

Korean Short Hair Styles - Color-tipped 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 vibrant emerald tips contrast with dark, Asian hair.

21. Shag Korean Short Hair

Often seen underneath the surface and around the face, peekaboo highlights add an interesting surprise to any hair cut or colour. While there is no right or wrong way to wear the two-toned look, the “hidden” second colour is more apparent when the hair is pulled up or sectioned in a certain way. The best part? It is also easy to maintain if you opt for a darker colour (on the top) as you won’t even need to bleach that part.

A cherry red is for anyone who wants to make a statement. When it comes to maintaining the colour, book in with your salon every two to three months. When you’re in between appointments, maintain your colour by topping up with red hair masks and shampoos. Also, prevent the fading process by swapping out your regular shampoo and conditioner with sulphate-free colour protecting ones.

If you’re aiming to achieve an ashy purple hue à la Twice Tzuyu, keep in mind that it’s a high-maintenance look that requires regular touch-ups at the salon and at-home treatments.

Le Sserafim Chaewon’s slightly flicked-out lob with bangs sits just above her shoulders. To recreate, blow dry your hair in a downward motion and tame flyaways with a smoothing serum or oil.

For the Copenhagen leg of Blackpink’s “Born Pink World Tour”, Jennie sported space buns with two dainty baby braids on both sides of her face. Proof that this ’90s hairstyle works for all occasions.

This rich and warm hue is a great, natural hair colour that will work for those in conservative offices. It’s also flattering on all skin tones and will work with most hairstyles.

Not ready to embrace a bold new hair colour? Ease into the trend and elevate your look with a few icy, silver-blue highlights, like Red Velvet Seulgi.

We’re loving this textured, shaggy ‘do on Hyuna. The layered bangs help to add even more visual interest.

Keep your locks flowing this year. Yes, we know, Singapore gets too hot and uncomfortable for long hair but keep in mind that this hairstyle gives you the opportunity to try out different looks whenever you’re in the mood for something different.

Let your hair down (literally), tie it in bunches or pigtails, or experiment with unique tied/untied/half-tied looks. The opportunities are (almost) endless.

When it comes to red hair, it can definitely turn heads. But you don’t have to go full Singapore-flag red to get the best effect – try out a copper tone, which gives your hair an alluring reddish look which is still muted enough for anyone who doesn’t want to be too adventurous. It’s also a gorgeous colour.

Love drinking red wine? Why not turn your hair into that colour too? But seriously, wine could also be your starter colour to red hair.

It’s subtle as it’s not bright but it’s also a unique look. Be careful not to veer too much onto the purple edge of this colour, but instead try to keep that reddish tone.

It might sound like a drastic cut – especially if you’ve never had your hair this short before – but it’s a chic look that’s quick and easy to wash and style. This style especially suits women with small faces and long necks but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for it if you don’t fit this criteria.

There are also several options with this style – very layered at the top, textured bangs etc. It’s also a great style for hot weather so let your neck breathe and feel the wind instead of being home to your often-sweaty hair.
