Only two episodes left before we say goodbye to It’s Okay to Not Be Okay! This K-drama sure did a number on us and had us crying buckets with almost every episode, but another thing we’ll definitely remember it by is how it served as a fount of fashion and beauty inspo—its leading lady, Seo Ye Ji, has managed time and again to make our jaws drop with her designer OOTDs and amazing hairstyles to boot! And if you thought any of that has changed when she bid her signature long locks goodbye in Episode 7, well, you thought wrong! Even with a short ‘do, there's no stopping Ko Mun-yeong from being creative with her beauty looks.
Below, we round up some of the best short hairstyles we’ve spotted on Seo Ye Ji in IOTNBO:
1. Blunt Lob
Welcome to the short hair club, Ko Mun-yeong! The very first scene that revealed her freshly chopped tresses featured our beloved leading lady with a blunt long bob that’s sleek and silky straight. We don’t know about you, but we’ve been wanting to hire Moon Gang-tae as our hairdresser since she sported this look!
The C-curl style is pretty popular among Koreans. This hairstyle entails a curling trick to achieve bounce and volume. The ends are rolled inwards using a curling iron for a seemingly natural wave that looks effortless and fresh!
3. Finger Waves
Being creative with the way you style your bangs is a surefire way to spruce up your beauty look! Case in point: Ko Mun-yeong’s flapper girl hairstyle inspired by the roaring 20s.
Lazy day? Here’s a tried-and-tested trick courtesy of Ko Mun-yeong: There’s nothing easier than simply sliding a barrette or two into your locks. It adds character to your look and makes you appear instantly glammed up.
5. Low Ponytail
If you can’t be bothered with spending hours in your makeup chair, an easy laidback ‘do should do the trick. Granted that your lob is long enough to be tied, take a page from Ko Mun-yeong’s beauty book and opt for a low ponytail. Her version is sleek and polished without a single strand of hair out of place.
6. Polished Bun with a Loose Tendril
An updo may feel impossible to nail when you have short hair, but Ko Mun-yeong makes it look so easy with her clean bun replete with a loose wavy tendril that gives it that casual vibe for an effortless effect. Secure the back with bobby pins to avoid the short ends from sticking out.
Which one's your favorite among her short hairstyles?
