If you want to emulate this hairstyle and get the same captivating aura as everyone’s beloved K-drama oppas, this guide is for you!

We’ve got tips for styling your hair and getting the right haircut to rock this look, as well as K-drama actors with luscious locks that you can get inspiration from. Read on to find out more!

The Two-block Haircut

This particular hairstyle isn’t just the standard one-length mop with a centre parting, or even worse, a bowl cut.

It’s called a two-block cut, where the “blocks” refer to the top and bottom sections of the hair!

The bottom “block” is cut shorter and styled neatly for a clean look. Meanwhile, the top “block” is left longer.

Having volume in the top section is key, as it allows you to easily experiment with different styles and adapt them to suit your desired look!

How You Can Achieve This Look

Before you attempt this hairstyle, keep in mind that this cut will look best on those who already have a relatively long fringe.

Unstyled, it should roughly touch your lashes, so that it will fall around your eyebrows after styling.

At the hair salon, you may need to get an overall perm to boost your hair’s volume.

For your fringe, you can choose to perm it for convenience, or style it with a curling rod every day, which would need more time and effort. The choice is yours!

Tips to Rock This Hairstyle

Style To Perfection

To get a hairstyle on the level of the K-drama leads we all know and love, you’ll need to put some effort into styling your hair.

Firstly, apply styling cream to add texture and volume, making it easier to tame your locks.

Use your fingers to comb your hair backwards and fluff it up. If possible, using a hairdryer to blow the top layer of hair upwards will help to create a voluminous look.

Then, make sure to part your hair properly. Instead of doing a simple (and outdated) centre parting, try parting your hair asymmetrically for a more dynamic hairstyle!

Lastly, use a curling iron to create a C-curl. A C-curl can be achieved by curling your hair inwards, so that each side of your fringe looks like the letter “C”.

This is also known as a “comma” hairstyle, since the bangs look like commas.

Add Finishing Touches

For a perfectly coiffed hairstyle that stays in shape all day, make sure to seal the look with styling clay or hairspray. To top it off, gently pull a few locks of hair away from the “commas”, or main part of the bangs.

If done correctly, this will give you a slightly messy and more natural look, elevating your hairstyle by making your hairstyle look less stiff and more effortlessly tousled.
