Korean Male Hairstyles

Korean males tend to choose hairstyles that are modern and edgy and work well with their hair's texture. Korean hair is thick, coarse, straight and highly porous which causes it to frizz in humid weather. Korean men style their hair in a variety of manners that work with the thick and coarse texture. Consider a hairstyle that complements your facial features.

Faux Hawk

A long faux hawk with sideburns is a trendy Korean male hairstyle. This look works with the thickness of Korean hair by creating volume at the top of the head. This hairstyle is long on the sides, with sideburns that cover the ear, a little length in the back and long hair cut choppy on top. The long section of hair at the top is styled so that it creates as much height as possible with hair gel, pomade or hairspray. The faux hawk should be worn messy and works great for those wanting a casual, edgy hairstyle.

Razored Shag

The razored shag is a Korean male hairstyle that thins out the hair's thickness. To create this look, a hairstylist uses a razor to splice hair into choppy layers. The razored shag provides a sleek look with hair short in the back, medium-length sideburns that cover the ears and sideswept fringe. This is a hairstyle appropriate for younger men in school or young professionals. Wear the style neater by keeping hair short with regular trims, or wear the style messier by letting the layers grow out.


A spiky hairstyle works great for Korean men's hair because it embraces the hair's natural coarseness. This is a good style for a teenager or young adult. This style is defined by its edgy texture and youthful appearance. For this style, have hair cut so that it is longer on top than on bottom, while leaving sideburns long. Squeeze a dollop of hair gel into the palms and work through the hair concentrating on the roots to create a spiky appearance.
