Korean hairstyles have an eclectic range. Men and women vary in preference and taste, from the traditional, basic cut, to an extravagant, trendy shape. Korean men and women both take pride in having perfect hair. Hairstyles exude many characteristics and can be stylish whether you are young or old. Several popular Korean hairstyles include: short cuts, shag styles, curly hair and ponytails.

Short Cuts

Short hairstyles are popular in both the men and women of Korea. Short hairstyles work for thin faces and can be styled with relative ease. Short hair can also be accessorised well with a scarf. Short hair can also exude sophistication. According to, short hairstyles show off "the maturity and charm of" a Korean woman.

Shag Styles

The shag hairstyle is especially popular when it comes to Korean men. Shag cuts are rather informal and are a choice hairstyle for boys and teenagers. Medium-length hair is required in order for this style to preserve its spunky and shaggy qualities. "This style is easy to achieve," according to, "with a small amount of gel to hold the fringe to one side, so that vision is not obscured."

Curly Styles

Curly hair is also quite trendy when it comes to Korean styles. Korean women and girls enjoy curly hair to emphasise a "natural and noble charm," states the Women Hairstyles site. Wearing loose curls can be matched with a "chic ribbon to give a lovely and sweet look." This hairstyle also exudes femininity. In addition to a ribbon, "it can be matched too with long strings of beads with decorated roses," according to Women Hairstyles.

The ponytail is yet another fashionable Korean hairstyle. Both men and women with long hair pull it into ponytails, often time with decorative accessories. Ponytails are all the rage for boys, girls and teenagers with draping locks, states Women Hairstyles, and can even give off a "naughty" look. Ponytails can be pulled back straight or shaped into a braid and used with hats or jewellery for an adorable look.
