Top 25 Most Popular Korean Hairstyles for Men

Many women are fascinated with the appearance of many of today’s more popular Korean pop and television stars. Knowing this, many men try to emulate their hairstyles in hope that they will be more attractive to the ladies. Therefore, we are going to take a look at the most popular styles for Korean male hair.

One popular style is to leave the back of the hair longer and layered. The sides are cut in such a way that they come to a point where the sideburns would be seen on a Caucasian. The fringe is flipped to the side above the eye. A slight perm can help produce some waves at the ends of the hair. Otherwise, a small amount of pomade is applied to the fingers and run through the hair to help it stand out from the head a little bit, giving the hair a slightly messy appearance that has become popular around the world.

Younger men are adopting a style where the hair is cut shorter on sides and back, but left heavier and fuller on top. They are having a light perm applied to produce waves in the hair. The fringe is trimmed so that it hangs straight across the forehead.

In a similar style, many young men are having their fringe trimmed thinner and layered. The ends are razor cut for texture and to provide a touch of unevenness. Both of these styles can be achieved with pomade to provide hold if one does not wish to have a perm put into the hair.

Those who work in creative fields such as photography, interior design, and such are going with a slightly “geeky” look. Here, the hair is cut short and thick with almost no layering. The trick lies in how it is styled. The hair is combed or brushed to the side with the fringe coming down nearly to the eyes. A touch of pomade is needed to provide some texture and hold in order to keep this stylish. Otherwise, it is very straight and makes the wearer look like a nerd.

While perms are not really popular in Korean male hair, the above style can be modified with a light perm to make styling and maintenance easier. The perm produces waves in the hair that can be directed to lay in random patterns and held in place with pomade or hair spray. This is a very low maintenance styling choice.

    • Why is it every guy thinks that hot Asians are gay? Jealousy is SO not cute. And THEY are definitely cute (ESPECIALLY KIM BUM AND THE SUJU MEMBERS!!!)

      Reach their level, THEN call them gay.

  • They do not look like gay, people are just not used to the features of another race.
    You wouldn’t want me to say I think Caucasian chicks look like men.

  • They might call it trendy hairstyle but really they are very much a girls’ hairstyles and with all the feminine makeup and eyeliner make it even worse. Some look weird because their hairstyles don’t match their look or style.

  • it’s a not a complete hair style for this time in 2012 in fashion trends it’s better work to prove this site in the hair style photos and images.

  • heechul, hongki, jang geun suk!! <3 <3 chocoball members XD
    & they r not gay.. oh please, dont tell me u dont know how mostly gay out there looks like.. to tell u the truth, most gay dont look like this.. well i can say 75% of gays actually look like a straight man.. believe me.. if u have a gay friend or know any gay guys, u know what i mean.. i dont get it when people always say beautiful/pretty guys are gay or look like gay.. it is so typical~ u hve to stop this stereotype, people.. duhh~ well, mybe u cant find this type of looks in western but in some countries in asia, its normal.. so, yeah~

    • They look cute and very handsome, you guys are just nervous of them, i want to be like them. They are very popular. Their names are very creamy and cool.
      I think i wish like to be him.
      If anyone like to contact me , i am at

  • I am Asian and i dont think they look gay…..u europe people hairstyle is nt d same with us so dont say gay…..asian girls like dis

  • Many of you are considering this “gay” because of your own cultural standards. Now, it is reasonable to find something different than what you are used to a little strange, but to mock it or patronize another cultures ideals of what is attractive is ignorant. Truth is, Korean culture is very clean-cut and well-kempt. I assume many of you that are passing judgement are Americans, who are naturally raised to be sloppy, lethargic, and poorly groomed. These Korean men not only have the balls to wear what we Americans consider a “feminine” hairstyle out into public, but they also attract hundreds of millions more females than many of you will ever. No, I’m not trying to let a few comments on the internet get to me, it is not really that big of a deal. What is a big deal however is that I have to be blessed with the oppurtunity to live in a country full of, for the most part, biased and undeservingly conceded morons that need to probably take a long look at themselves, analyzing everything from hygeine to behaviors to thought processes, before ever attempting to judge another. This is why every other country hates us..

    • My bad, forgot to mention- I am a white, heterosexual, American male that is interested in the Asian cultures. Felt I should add that in, just incase any of you are thinking that I am just getting defensive cause I am possbly Asian or gay. Nope. Just trying to actually use the brain I have.

  • Im thinking about getting one of these hairstyles, before im old and bald! I like most of them, except Kim Heechul’s straight hairstyle, thats for REAL gay! He is even holding some sort of lipstick or something. xD

    • Hey! For your information, none of those guys are gay! You can’t just judge a book by it’s cover! In Asia, most guys look like that and that doesn’t mean they are gay!! Heechul is my bias and you can’t dare to call him that -_-‘ and also, even if he’s gay, what does that relate to you?! Does he being gay means he’ll take your boyfriend or girlfriend or something?!
