If you love watching K-dramas, you will notice how gorgeous the leading ladies are, not only because of their flawless makeup and fashion, but also because of their always- fabulous hairstyles. Their locks are perfectly in place, they bounce whenever they walk the streets of Seoul, and their leading men just can’t help but run their fingers through them. Admit it, you've probably thought of copying a K-drama actress' hair at least once!
May it be a drastic transformation or a look that will fit your #ootd, here are the cutest Korean-inspired hairstyles to cop, according to K-drama actresses:
Park Shin Hye just gave us major hair envy when she posted her new hairstyle on her Instagram account! Gone are the days when she had long, layered jet-black locks—now looks extra cute in a soft brown bob cut.
So much Kim Bok Joo vibes! Last month, Lee Sung Kyung surprised us with her choppy bangs in an auburn hue on Instagram. While her Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo character has a shorter ‘do, this longer version made her look like a complete doll.
3. Bae Suzy
Busy day ahead? Go for a messy bun that will keep your hair in place, like this one on Bae Suzy! While you’re at it, you might want to consider coloring your hair to get a vibrant burgundy color. If you’re looking for the cutest hair scrunchies, just click here.
4. Lee Hyeri
Our Duk Seon just debuted her new blunt haircut on Instagram! Paired with a wispy fringe, Lee Hyeri looks fresh in this number and we bet you will, too. Take care on your way to the hair salon (or be careful with those scissors)!
IU’s beach curls when she celebrated her 12th debut anniversary totally reminds us of the sand and sea. And if we can’t have that vacation (for now), might as well just get the hairstyle, wear a summer dress, turn on the speaker, and sip a glass of iced cold pineapple juice...at home.
You can never go wrong with a sleek and classy look, like this one on our favorite K-drama secretary, Park Min Young. The brown hue gives it a less-serious mood, and the middle-parted style can be so flattering on different face shapes.
7. Gong Hyo Jin
Here comes the braid! Channel your inner Gong Hyo Jin with this plaited number, similar to how her When The Camellia Blooms character, Dong Baek, would often style her hair. If you’re headed to the grocery, this style is perfect to do since it will keep you from touching your mane or tucking your hair behind your ear.
8. Park Ju Hyun
Show your playful side like Extracurricular’s Park Ju Hyun with some colored highlights! Have it dyed in the salon, or opt for hair extensions if you’re a bit scared of bleaching. You can also choose your favorite color, or go for the entire rainbow!
9. Kim Da Mi
This hairstyle on Kim Da Mi makes us want to watch Itaewon Class for the nth time. She still has that same Jo Yi-seo look, sans the bangs and blonde dip dye. Instead, Da Mi went for soft waves with her black hair! Cute!
10. Lee Joo Young
When it comes to layered pixie cuts, Itaewon Class’ Lee Joo Young is our ultimate peg. She has been wearing this hairstyle during her Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo days, and has become her signature look ever since.
