What’s airy, voluminous, and loved by everyone? Candy floss, of course! And now these descriptive terms are also applicable to the latest hair trend: Candyfloss hairstyle.

If you are imagining bright pink, yellow or blue hair, you can cast those thoughts away. The candyfloss hairstyle doesn’t need to go with a candy-sweet colour, which means it can be work-appropriate.

The candyfloss hairstyle is achieved by layering the hair, and sometimes include Korean-style perm, to give the illusion of body and volume. The hair is then further cut and styled strategically to give the illusion of a smaller face.

What this means is that you can hop on this trend regardless of your preferred hair length! What’s not to love?

For a cute and youthful, pixie-like look, a shorter take on the airy “candyfloss” hairstyle will give you exactly that. To spruce and liven this style up, go for a refreshed hair colour too, like the muted violet one above.

If you like a more je ne sais quoi look (a fancy French term for effortless beauty, literally translating to “I-don’t-know-what”) that is low maintenance but still stylish, opt for a shoulder-length style. Depending on your face shape, you can choose to create curls in wide areas such as the forehead, cheekbones, or jaw that you prefer to hide.

This hairstyle also looks incredible in a ponytail, as sported by Red Velvet’s Irene and SNSD’s TaeYeon, for a practical hairstyle (especially in sunny Singapore) that looks effortlessly chic.

We don’t know about you, but this flattering-on-all-faces look has all of us hooked. With all the colours and hairstyles possible with this trend, prepare yourself for one of the best hairstyles you’ve ever tried!
