5 DIY Hairstyling Tips For Asian Female Hair | Asian Hair

We always assume that a new haircut is all we need whenever we get sick of our plain and dull hairstyles. Although a good cut is important, the fact is that a nice hairstyle often requires some effort in styling with the use of a good hair spray or hair wax and other styling tools. Very often, the nice asian hairstyle pictures we see in this site or in other Japanese hairstyle books have been styled with hairspray or curled with curling tongs. It is not possible to achieve ‘magazine looking’ hairstyles without doing anything to it. In this post, we will share some easy and quick DIY hairstyling tips to get your normal boring looking hair jazzed up within minutes.

1) Styling your short layered hair

A light touseled feel will make a difference to your everyday short hair look. Apply some hair wax or hair spray on your palm and rub your palms together. Run them through your hair crown and hair ends by scrunching them with your fingers, Tousel your hair by inserting your fingers into your hair and flip it up and down to create the ‘messy’ look. Use your palms to flip the hair ends in upwards motion after that.





2) Styling your shoulder-length layered hair

Apply some hair wax or hair spray on your palm and rub your palms together. Run them through your hair ends by scrunching them from the base with your fingers in upwards motion. Run your fingers through your fringe and hair crown with the left-over hair wax or hair spray. 





3) Styling your long layered straight hair

A lot of women with long straight hair do not bother to style their hair simply because they think there’s not much to do with their hair and so rather leave them as it is. Unless you are born with naturally straight and silky hair, otherwise if might end up looking flat, dull or even frizzy over time, especially if your hair is layered.

To create that silky straight hair look, apply some hair spray on mid-hair section to hair ends and get a good flat iron to straighten this part of your hair. Make sure the flat iron is being heated up before using.  Clamp a section of hair from mid length and pulling it down slowly to hair ends and repeat for 3-4 times on same section of hair before moving on to other sections. Avoid using it for more than 3 times as it can be drying and damaging to your hair.




4) Styling your long permed hair

If you had your hair permed and dutifully apply hair styling product on your curls daily but still wondering why it does not look as gorgeous as those in hair magazines, then you really have to invest in a good curling tong. The truth is those featured in the hair magazines often had to use curling tongs to bring out those nice big looking curls even though they already had a perm, otherwise your curls will just look wavy if you use hair styling products only.





5) Styling your shoulder-length permed layered hair

If you have permed hair, you MUST always style it by applying hair styling cream or hair wax for permed hair. There is no exception, otherwise your hair will look frizzy and messy. It is best to start applying hair styling product when your hair is still damp after a shower, and either let it dry naturally or blow dry it to bring out the curls. If you want to make the curls even more prominent, you can also use a curling tong. It is harder to style it once your hair gets dry and often the curls do not last. Tip: Always remember that the longer the hair is, the easier it is to style and making it lasting on damp hair rather than dry hair.

Asian hair styles look good, but they look even better with styling. Famous Japanese hair stylist Hideaki Kudou shows us 2 simple and creative ways on how we can spice up our everyday hairstyles to create different looks in just a few minutes!

1) Styling your fringe

If you have been the type who likes to sweep your fringe to the side,  why not try the ‘fringe’ look? It will make you look young and refreshed in an instant. However, not all fringe length can pull off this look. If your fringe is too long it’ll cover your eyes and irritate you the whole day, if its too short you might have a problem sweeping to the side subsequently. To pull off this versatile look, you will need to trim your fringe to sit just nicely above the eyes.

2) Changing your fringe parting and setting curls on hair ends

If you have long fringe and have been keeping it center parted, you can be a bit more adventurous by trying to part it sideways for a change. For those with short hairstyles and bob hair cuts, you might want to set some rollers on your hair ends to create loose waves and apply some hairwax to create that sexy touseled look.
