Taeyang's haircut: Sloppiest haircut of all time!

It has been almost a decade since Korean singer Taeyang has cut his hair. Most Taeyang fans will most likely agree with me. As a big fan of Taeyang, it seems pretty disappointing how Taeyang is pretty slack with his hairstyles.
Although Taeyang possesses one of those unique square shaped faces, he is always seen in his "official" haircut: the extremely short onion haircut.
"Onion" haircut as in: shaving 95% of your head, leaving the front 5% of the top forehead with a traditional "fohawk".
However, one aspect Taeyang's haircut is good for is having the impression of clean and lean.

Now, back to the actual reviewing of the onion haircut:

In the current Kpop industry, most guys often wear the popular medium haircut with bangs. This makes Taeyang's haircut fairly unique and classy. However.... It's called sloppy as soon as the Kpop idol wears the same haircut for over 5 years. I mean, it will be nice to have Taeyang having a Kim Bum hairstyle sometime.. Not only does Taeyang's haircut look like it was quickly shaved in 5 minutes, without any effort, but it also reflects on his style as well. It gives an impression that the onion hair was never polished up at all.

To be frank, Taeyang's haircut:

Lacks style (considering the amount of time he has had this haircut)
This is going towards a 6/10 for style
10/10 for maintainability (You don't even need to maintain it!)
5/10 for the short length (there's not much thickness and length to his hair, it's heading towards bald)

To conclude, Taeyang's hairstyle is pretty nice overall, as long as you don't put on this hairstyle for years in a row.

The 2AM Seulong's sharp haircut

Hottest member of the Kpop boy group, Seulong Im, who specializes in the vocal part of the group. Today we will be reviewing his unique haircut.
Clearly, Seulong's hairstyle looks like another ordinary short haircut, but look closely. You see it is nicely trimmed up so that it's actually weighing on the heavy, thick side.
His fringes and sides are actually folding downward toward his skin. That means it's relatively thick. This kind of haircut is hard to maintain especially one would have to get it trimmed up precisely, not to make it look too bushy.
Notice how Seulong's face shape is falling onto the triangle shaped category. Seulong is doing rather a great job of balancing out his facial features, especially his face shape.
Clearly, this IS Seulong's signature haircut! From looking at his relatively "unique" hairstyle this is the concluding review:

8/10 for his trendy style
6/10 for the maintainability of his haircut
9/10 for the short length of his haircut according to his face shape

Hwang Mi Hee has clear, symmetrical facial features. These factors are vital to "balance" off a hairstyle.
See? Her gorgeous eyes are one of the factors that balance out this thinner hairstyle that has less fringes. With just long hair, one can have countless different ways of putting up their hair. Hwang Mi Hee's hairstyles are often pretty unique.

Korean idol Eunjung's sexy hairdo

Ham Eun-jeong, also known as "Eunjung", is the leader of the popular South Korean girl group, "T-ara".
Eunjung is one of the few Korean idols that have a short hairstyle as her "signature". With a shorter haircut, Eunjung has a very unique sexy style. Along with her heart shaped face, she looks adorable when having her hair in a natural look without make up or special effects.
In t-ara's earlier album release, "Braking Heart", Eunjung retains her short hairstyle, but fixing up her fringes so that they are not thick and tight. But instead, her fringes only cover a small portion of her forehead. Otherwise, imagine having full bangs in such a sexy style.... It wouldn't work would it?
Now, back to Eunjung's usual style. She wears a short haircut even when not performing. I actually think it takes an effort to keep a shorter haircut for girls, since naturally most girls' hair becomes naturally thick and tangled up. So that means in order to maintain Eunjung's hairstyle one must trim it occasionally to retain that shape.
Eunjung looks extremely cute and adorable in shorter haircuts! With lighter hairstyle like Eunjung's, a girl can show off a different style; a more fashionable model look.
Clearly, Eunjung's photos are worth more than a million words.

Korean singer Hyomin Park

Born on May 30, 1989, Hyomin Park (Also known as Park Sun-Young), is a South Korean singer and actress; most notably known for her role in the popular girl group, T-ara.
Hyomin Park T-araBlessed with an oval shaped face, Hyomin retains her sparkling hairstyles that does magic for her on stage. Notice when most Korean idols perform on the stage, they appear to be "shining" on the stage. This is not due to their makeup or high heels, but most importantly their hairstyle.
Hyomin long hairWow, the "Hyomin" hairstyle is characterized as long, thick hair. Also, check out that most of her hair length is fairly heavy, all the way below her shoulders. And her hair ends in a smooth, silky fashion.
Hyomin BlondeUsually, it looks like Hyomin is fond of longer hair. But here, her blond hair color creates a whole different look. And her hairstyle this time is much trimmed, without any traces of bangs. But we all know, almost every Korean idol HAS to dye their hair blond once in a while.. right? In this fashion Hyomin reminds me of Jessica Jung.
Hyomin TiaraYeah, it looks like Hyomin is not a big fan of FULL BANGS like most newly debuted Korean idols. But wait...
Hyomin HairstyleHere! Hyomin finally wears full fringes on her release of the album "Braking heart"!

Korean idol Hyuna Kim

Born on June 6, 1992, Kim "Hyun Ah" is one of the members of the popular Korean girl group, 4Minute.
Hyuna recently released a solo album, "Bubble Pop", which has gathered over 8 million views on youtube on the first week. Her recent look, along with her hairstyle, has brought herself a whole level of charisma. She looks so much more appealing and outstanding in her new long hair.
Notice how Hyuna is able to pull off almost any kind of hairstyle. As expected from a Korean idol, Hyuna has one of those oval shaped faces that most idols possess. Not only that, Hyuna's current hairstyle is towards mostly 3/4 covered fringes. That being said, Hyuna's most recent hairstyle pretty much gives an impression to fans that she has "graduated" from being a maknae of her girl group, "4 Minute". Now, her longer hairstyle can be described as mature and silky.
Where as this photo right here, is one of Hyuna's older photos, back when she didn't have her own "solo" album. Back then, she had full bangs, which is one of those popular but boring hairstyles that younger girls wear.
Isn't it great Hyuna is starting her own path? She is going towards the "mature sexy" side. =)

Korean star Yoon Eun Hye

Born on October 3, 1984, Yoon Eun Hye is is a South Korean actress, singer, and model. Known for her outstanding role in the dramas "Princess Hours" and "1st Shop of Coffee Prince". Although she first debuted through a girl group called "Baby V.O.X.", she is pretty much on her own now.
Born with an oval shaped face, Eun Hye is able to pull off any length of hairstyles she wishes. She is notably known for her medium hairstyle and long hairstyles, from "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince". Yoon Eun Hye's hair is naturally smooth and curly. Check it out, her wavy long hair with her beautiful face makes her a sexy model!
Here is an example of her medium haircut. She doesn't do the traditional "full bangs" look, but instead create fringes that cover a quarter of her forehead. Also, she has her curly hair pulled down. Overall I find this hairstyle more "elegant".
Isn't it amazing? Yoon Eun Hye's face shape can totally pull off the short hairstyle as well!! She is so pretty~~ :D
Another example of Yoon Eun Hye's short haircuts. Here, she trimmed her hair fringes and sides, giving it a wilder look. Here she has more full of bangs than any other hairstyle. Definitely, hair wax was used to achieve this hairstyle.
One word: "hot".

Korean singer Park Ji-young (Gahee)

Park Ji-young, also known as "Kahi" or Gahee, is the leader of the South Korean girl group "After School".
It appears that Gahee possesses a diamond shaped face, which means that her ideal hairstyles would have to soften up her cheekbones by making her forehead balance accordingly. That is why her usual hairstyle is the long hairstyle
I love how Gahee's hairstyle is always so silky and smooth. This means that her hair thickness is pretty strong. Her long hair length gives her the "rich" feeling.
It appears that Gahee does not like to try out short haircuts, due to her face shape. However, her "trademark" long hair gives her the "sexy" look. Which is the best!
You can add some variations to Gahee's hairstyle by adding curls onto the ends of the hair length. This adds richness to the hairstyle. However, don't forget to avoid bangs to achieve Gahee's hairstyle!

Korean singer Tiffany (SNSD)

Stephanie Hwang (Hwang Mi-young), also known as "Tiffany", is a member of the South Korean girl group "Girl's Generation".
As expected from an idol with an oval shaped face, Tiffany's facial balance and features allow her to handle almost any kind of hairstyle. Here, she demonstrates a heavy type of short hairstyle, with thick full bangs.
Now, Tiffany grows her hair to wear a longer haircut. This type of haircut looks very cute on her, especially the curled endings. Longer hairstyle gives Tiffany a "princess" look.
Isn't Tiffany so sexy? She looks extremely hot in that type of long, thick hairstyle. With full fringes, Tiffany successfully pulls off the sexy princess look.
Amazing! Tiffany is able to even pull off a medium hairstyle with thick, short fringes and sides. From all of the hairstyles, Tiffany looks great in every one of them. Which is do YOU think fits her best? ;D

SNSD Member Yuri

Kwon Yuri, also known as "Yuri", is another beautiful member of the Korean girl group, "Girl's Generation." (SNSD)
With an oval shaped face, Yuri is known for her usual long hair. But Yuri's version of "long hairstyle" is pretty similar to Yoona's, where the style is not too heavy or crazy. Instead, Yuri's hair style is very natural to the extent that it brings out her true beautiful face.
I love how Yuri does not have heavy bangs that cover her whole forehead. It's usually left in a 3/4 frame. That way one can notice her full features of her face. If the bangs covered so much portion of your forehead, then there is only so much facial impression you can show.
Yuri's hairstyle is pretty much long, medium thick, but curly at the ends. With this kind of hairstyle you can portray a "sexy" or "cute" look.
That is a gorgeous smile!! :D
Yuri's hairstyle makes it suitable for both formal and normal occasions. Don't you think? =)

SNSD Member Yoona

Im Yoon-Ah, most commonly known as "Yoona", is one of the gorgeous members of the Korean girl group, "Girl's Generation" (SNSD).
Although she has somewhat a rectangular shaped face, she is most notably known for her long straight hair. Just like the other SNSD member Sunny.Well, well. Here, we have Yoona in shorter hair. But still maintains that 3/4 split for her fringes. She quite loves putting off her bangs, because that way her adorable eyes can be seen much more clearly. Otherwise, with full bangs, one's eyes would seem much smaller than they are.Now we have Yoona back in her longer, straight hairstyle, but this time dyed in a lighter brown colour. Because of her lovely facial features, she is able to pull off a "less crazy" hairstyle and still maintain that unique Korean idol charisma. Crazier hairstyles can be a bad thing because they can take away one's original facial features and emphasize on the hair ONLY!! Examples like Nam Ji Hyun and Park Bom both portray an intense hairstyle with extremely thick bangs that can cover your whole original facial features.Here is an example of Yoona wearing a "heavier/crazier" hairstyle. With thick bangs that cover most of your face, it doesn't do such a good job at showing your original elegant face. Even with a plainer, normal haircut, it does a great job at showing your gorgeous face.

Korean singer Jae Kyung Kim

Born on December 24, 1988, Jae Kyung Kim (Hangul: 김재경) is the leader of the recently debuted Korean girl group, "Rainbow".
Jae Kyung is one of the best examples of what an oval shaped face looks like. If you haven't noticed already, most Korean idols have the "oval shaped face, because it's the face shape that can work with almost any kind of hairstyle. Here, Jae Kyung is known for her long hairstyles ever since her debut.
The two photos just now demonstrate Jae Kyung's magical oval shaped face. That is, she can fully neglect bangs or have full fringes. Not only that, her fringes are so thick and short it's pretty hard for other face shapes to handle. But clearly, most fans would say Jae Kyung looks best with full bangs, because it creates an image of a "sharper" face, with a "cuter" look.
In this version of Jae Kyung's "long hairstyle", she has it all straightened, ultra thick and long. Adorable =)
Here is another one where Jae Kyung deliberately switches over to curly long hair but with bangs wrapped up. But I'd say bangs are better for her. What do YOU think? =p
