Fall is well advanced and we are heading into the holiday season. Now is the perfect time to refresh your look, whether it’s with a fresh cut or a change of style. If you’re an avid K-pop fan or just looking for a little hair inspiration, look no further. Here are some great ways to stay on trend through 2022.
1. Spicy Pumpkin Hair
This color always seems to come back, and for good reason: it’s a great classic for fall! Much like the cafe au lait it is named after, the warm, spicy pumpkin hair color is perfect for warding off the winter chill. It’s modeled here (in various styles too!) By Chaeryeong from ITZY, Sieun from STAYC, Ningning from Aespa and Seulgi from Red Velvet.
2. Choppy bangs
As COVID-19 lockdowns come to an end, this slightly undone look is still super chic. This textured, imprecise bangs are totally reminiscent of self-cut bathroom mirror styles and are also much easier to recreate than blunt bangs as the messy look gives it that cool girlish charm. Get inspired by Wendy from Red Velvet, Mimi from Oh My Girl, Taeyeon from Girls’ Generation or Momo from TWICE!
3. Barely there braids
In case you’re not ready to commit to a chop, this is a great look that is little engaged but very stylish. Just a strand of barely present braids dotted throughout the rest of the hair is a cool way to add some interest to an otherwise simple look. IU, Jennie from BLACKPINK, Felix from Stray Kids and Jaehee from Weekly have mastered this style!
4. Double ponytails
Ponytails are back, and big! High or low, half up or fully tied up – there really is no wrong way to do this style, which makes it super versatile. It is also well suited for short hair. Take inspiration from Yiren from EVERGLOW, Irene from Red Velvet, Nayeon from TWICE or Lisa from BLACKPINK and try this style!
5. Long healthy lengths
There’s no better time than winter to give your hair a break from fading and regain its natural color. Your hair will thank you and you can celebrate the New Year with healthy and refreshed hair. Oh My Girl’s Hyojung, ITZY’s Yuna, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and Chungha all look natural, so can you!
6. Waves of waves
For those of us who are old enough to remember what a crimper is, maybe it’s time to talk! Whether you create your style with curling tongs or a curler, this look is all about defined waves that add texture and volume. If you don’t know how to achieve it, just watch TWICE’s Chaeyoung, Aespa’s Sunmi, Karina or Red Velvet’s Joy.
7. Creative coloring
If you are a huge fan of color but don’t want to be basic then this is definitely the look to try. It is not a particular style per se, but rather a license to get creative with your dye job. Whether you do it like Yeji from ITZY, J-Hope from BTS, Yoon from STAYC or Youngjae from GOT7, the sky is the limit!
