See-through bangs: The most popular hair trend in Korea
Seen on countless Korean female celebrities, this hair trend is one of the most popular amongst Asian women. It’s really easy to pull off so you should try it out if you’re to change up your current hairstyle.
If you’re a fan of Korean dramas and K-pop, you’ve most likely already observed this hair trend. Featuring thin, wispy bangs that expose just a bit of the forehead, this hair trend has been sported by many Korean female celebrities in the recent years.Compared to the thick and straight bangs as seen on celebrities such as Zooey Deschanel, see-through bangs help to soften the facial features for a more girly and sweet look. Korean celebrities such as Yoon Eun Hye, Song Hye Kyo and Lee Yeon Hee have been sporting this hairstyle for the past few years and you’ve got to admit that this chic hairstyle is probably their best look so far.
The best part about this hairstyle: it creates the illusion of a smaller face. I mean, who doesn’t want that? So if you happen to have a round or square face, this is the perfect hairstyle for you. This doesn’t mean that it’s unsuitable for those with other face shapes – because it’s so versatile, anyone can easily pull it off. While bangs can sometimes be quite a commitment to maintain, see-through bangs are a lot more forgiving and low maintenance because not a lot of hair has to be cut for it. And when it grows out, it can be easily integrated with the rest of your hair to create a long fringe. So don’t worry, this isn’t a hairstyle which requires frequent trips to the hair salon.
This hairstyle is not a very tricky one so it can be easily recreated by hairstylists.
