10 Pretty Hairstyles We Love on Kim Sejeong
1. Shin Ha-ri in A Business Proposal

2. Shin Geum-hui in A Business Proposal
Sejeong has had a number of hair transformations in A Business Proposal, but her hair as her fake persona, Shin Geum-hui is one of her best so far. We love the cool-toned hues on chunky honey highlights on this style, and the curtain bangs add such a delicate feel to the look!
3. Do Ha-na in The Uncanny Counter
Starring in one of the most popular K-Dramas in 2020, Sejeong wowed audiences with her incredible transformation as Do Ha-na—whose superpowers could not only sense evil spirits from afar, but could experience a person’s memories just by touching them.
Part of her transformation was her appearance; putting down her usual sweet looks and donning shoulder-length jet black waves with wispy bangs. Ha-na was the epitome of a “cool girl”; and this hair look perfectly summed up her effortlessly charismatic charms!
4. Ra Eun-ho in School 2017
For the role that landed Sejeong both the “Best New Actress” and “Best Popular Actress” in 2017, the actress wore chestnut brown hair accentuated by natural waves and a full fringe. It gave her a youthful glow and fit her character of a student perfectly!
5. Cloth Braid
You knew someone just went to the beach if they come back with some type of cool braid. Coming in all kinds of colors, having a few pieces of hair braided with cloth is not only a great way to accessorize, but truly gives major summer vibes. In this photo, Sejeong achieved that vibe by braiding her hair with a bubblegum pink fabric. Excuse us while we cop this look for our own summer looks!
6. Statement Headband
In this hairstyle, Sejeong switched up her dark, shoulder-length hair with ash blonde highlights—making her look super chic with a hint of that Y2K aesthetic. To elevate the 'do even more, Se-jeong paired it a thick black velvet headband with faux pearls!
7. Half-up beach waves
If you think Sejeon looks good with brown hair, she's even more ethereal with ebony locks! This look makes us want to grow our hair out and get a perm ASAP—who says you need to cut your hair short for the summer?
8. Fishtail braid
A classic hair look for the summer, Sejeong looks effortlessly put-together in a fishtail braid. If you want to add some flare to the style, pull out some loose tendrils for some texture and incorporate some face-framing layers or a polished fringe.
