Whether it be different short hair or a bright dye job, Korean actress Shin Min Ah can surely pull off any look! After all, she has been in the game since 2001 (1998, if you count her modeling years), so sporting a cool new 'do is as effortless to her as blowing us away with her performance in a K-drama.
That said, it can be tough to keep track of all the hairstyles the Hometown Cha Cha Cha star has rocked so far. So, we did the researching for you, and rounded up all of the best looks you'd want to cop from Min Ah below. If you’re a seasoned K-drama fan, you may recognize most of them!
9 Gorgeous Hairstyles to Copy from Shin Min Ah
1. Full Wispy Bangs
As with any K-drama leading lady, one of Shin Min-ah’s signature hairstyles is a long, dark brown 'do with full wispy bangs. You can see her rock this exact style in her most recent show, Our Blues! If you have an oval or oblong face, these brow-length bangs would look amazing on you and they will definitely add that chic edge to your tresses!
2. Chocolate Brown Waves
For her role as Yoon Hye-jin in Hometown Cha Cha Cha, Min Ah opted for a simple chocolate brown dye job. Not only is it low-maintenance, but it’s also super easy to achieve at home with only a box dye. Like the actress, pair it with loose, undone waves to elevate your look!
3. Wispy Face-Framing Curtain Bangs
Thanks to its numerous flattering variations, curtain bangs are a popular look in the K-beauty world. In the photos below, Min Ah sports a wispy, face-framing version, plus a '70s style fringe to go with her half-updo. Both are perfect for slightly changing your look and copping that K-style flair!
4. Auburn Layers
When she isn't wearing her natural hair color, Min Ah frequently goes for this reddish brown shade to refresh her locks. The shade offers such a pretty warm veil on her tresses, and it’s actually one that looks flattering on any skin tone! We won’t blame you if you'd want to cop this look for yourself!
5. Round Bob
For her role as a lawyer in the 2019 drama Chief of Staff, Min Ah wore this sophisticated round bob that suits her character perfectly! It's one of the boldest chops we've seen on her, but as expected, she didn't fail to rock it
— with and without bangs!
6. Full Blunt Bangs
Want to completely change your vibe? Blunt bangs are the way to go for a dramatic shift! Min Ah rarely goes for this fringe style as she mainly opts for a wispier look. However, if you’re into classic cuts and clean lines, this type of bang can be just what you’re looking for!
7. Straight Lob
If you want a lightweight and breathable ‘do for the summer, a long bob or lob is the way to go. You can leave it loose or style it in a sleek way like Min Ah for special events or your selfie sessions!
8. Blunt Square Bob with Wispy Bangs
To break up the bluntness of a square bob, combine it with Min Ah's signature wispy bangs. It's a stylish, fuss-free look that'll help soften your features and give you a more youthful look. No wonder it's another K-beauty favorite!
9. Milk Chocolate Hair
While chocolate brown hair never fails on-screen, a brighter, milkier dye job looks a lot more fun. This hue, which the actress wore in the drama Tomorrow With You, is one of the lightest hair colors that Min Ah has tried to date. Go for this shade if you want to achieve a fresh and youthful glow!
