These hairstyles are perfect for beginners and can complement just about any outfit. So, keep reading if you’re eager to learn how to effortlessly style your hair!
Hairstyle 1: Side-Swept Bangs
This style has been making waves in the Korean scene, with idols like IVE’s Wonyoung and New Jeans’ Haerin effortlessly pulling it off.
Start with damp bangs and use a flat comb to brush them downwards. Then, blow-dry your hair in a downward direction.
To create the side-swept bangs, part your hair to the side, bringing more hair to the front for a wispy effect. After that, simply tuck the portion of your bangs behind your ear.
Take a spooly brush and some hairspray, gently coat the bristles with hairspray, and comb through the individual strands of bangs framing the front part of your face on both sides.
Finally, spray some hairspray on your fingers and gently secure the ends of the bangs by pressing them to the sides of your ear.
You can choose to accessorise this look or leave it as is, and you’re good to go!
Hairstyle 2: Y2K Low Bun
We’ve seen idols like (G)-idle’s Shuhua and Aespa’s Winter rocking this look, which is a modern twist on side-swept bangs.
Start with side-swept bangs and part your hair to get longer side bangs on both sides.
Gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail and secure it.
Create a three-strand braid, leaving a significant amount of hair at the end before securing it with an elastic.
Now, wrap that braid around itself, leaving the little ponytail at the end, and secure this bun with an elastic.
That’s the back sorted!
For the front, tuck those long strands of side bangs behind your ears, using a comb to guide them and frame your face nicely.
Lastly, use hairspray to set the ends of the ponytail, making it a bit spiky and keeping it in place.
You’re all set! This is a simple look that can be dressed up elegantly or given a playful twist.
Hairstyle 3: Braided Pigtails
This style adds a playful twist to your regular pigtails, and it’s the same one Blackpink’s Jennie sported for her “You & Me” photoshoot. We love how quick and easy this elevated ponytail look can be!
Start by parting your hair down the middle.
Next, put one side of your hair into a high ponytail, with the ponytail’s height around the middle of your forehead.
To secure the ponytail, loop an elastic band and use a u-pin for extra hold.
Repeat these steps on the other side of your hair.
Now, create a simple three-strand braid and secure it with a clear elastic.
Wrap the braid around the hair tie and use a u-pin to keep it in place.
Repeat the same steps for the other side of the ponytail.
And there you have it! This playful look elevates your regular pigtails effortlessly.
