For a chic but playful style, This bob is textured at the ends to avoid the heaviness that can come with a blunt cut on a dense head of hair.

4Korean Hairstyles: Long Layered Hair With See Through Bangs

6Pink Rose Bob
Inspired by the bold hair colors of K-Pop stars, this pink color is multi-tonal and full of dimension.

7Ombre Rainbow Hair
Another huge trend inspired by K-pop idols, rainbow hair is modern, fun, and extremely trendy. While you could go for an allover rainbow dye job, this ombre style contrasts beautifully with natural color, and saves some of your hair from the damaging lightening process required to get this kaleidoscope of pastel hues. For a damage free, temporary version, you can achieve a similar look with hair chalk. Since Asian hair is typically stronger and more resistant to color adherence, be sure to wet hair before chalking, and use heat to seal in color once hair has dried. The only downside to chalking is that color can transfer onto your clothes and hands throughout the day, so try to avoid light colored clothes,

Bangs are big in Asian hair trends, but if you’re going for a more sophisticated look, consider this bob with a centre part and no fringe around the face.
