Korean Guys Trendy Hairstyles

Women of almost all ages are mesmerized with the looks of today’s popular Korean pop singers, movie and television stars. In view of this, young men try to pattern out their hairstyles hoping to get more attention from the ladies.

The popular trend now for Korean male is short bangs, medium at top, longer back and sides. This type of hairstyle mostly worn messy works great for those who have a casual edgy lifestyle. Most men choose a hairstyle that they think will go together with their overall style of living. The hairstyle should fit work or school requirements or whatever requirement one has for his personal life.

Those who want to appear rebellious or sporty looking wear their hair in a razor cut shag. The uneven cut shows a man to be very confident with a bit of defiance in authority. Korean actor’s hairstyles are best examples. Rain Lee and Lee Jun Ki are trendsetters in this category. Most of their hairstyle is long and messy but still has overall appeal.

Korean men style their hair in various manners, which works well with their thick and coarse hair texture. Asian hair is mostly thick, coarse, highly porous and straight, some even frizz during humid weather. Facial features should be taken into consideration.

Popular Asian male hairstyle often fall into the punk rocker category, but men nowadays tend to be more versatile when it comes to their hairstyles. They can be very simple but have some small spikes in every direction. In fact, they can be more creative than women when it comes to their locks.

In similar styles, young men have their hair trimmed thinner and layered. Ends are razor cut for texture giving it a look of unevenness. These styles can be achieved and controlled with gels to provide hold if one doesn’t want a perm cut.

Cool Asian Mens Hair Styles For 2011

2011 has just started. Are you thinking of getting shedding your old image and going for a complete makeover? Our hair is an important part to our image, and can be a great factor in making that difference in how you look. Here are some cool asian mens hair styles you can consider for a great start to 2011.

1. Hair is kept longer at the back and is layered. You don’t necessary need a perm for this but if you want, go for a light perm on hair ends, which can be really helpful when you are styling your hair.

2. This hairstyle is popular with Korean guys. Hair is short and heavier on top and a short neat fringe is needed. A light perm is needed for the wavy look.

3. This hairstyle is pretty similar to the one above but the fringe style is different. Here the fringe is not straight and is thinner than the one above. Notice how different color will give a different look. As a general rule of thumb, our hair color must not be close to our skin tone. Go for lighter colors if your skin tone is dark and vice-versa.

5. This is a stylish ‘geek’ look that is popular among guys working in the creative industry (interior designers, photographers etc.) Hair is short and thick without much layering. Some styling is required to make it look stylish, otherwise this hairstyle can really get too neat and nerdy that is far from looking good.

6. This is somewhat similar to the style above except hair is shorter and is permed to get the curls. Most guys tend to avoid perms, but this look is popular for male perm hairstyles, it really stylish and not difficult to manage. You will likely to stand out since perms are not widely popular among men.
