Female Korean celebrities often change up their looks, and the biggest difference we can usually spot is their hair. Whether it be for a new album comeback or a new drama, these celebs rock their brand new hairstyles over and over again, without fail.

Here are 12 Korean celebrities who effortlessly pull off the shoulder-length hair look. They look so good in it, you will definitely be tempted to book your next trip down to the salon asap, for a hair makeover!

1. Itzy’s Ryujin

Known as one of the queens of rocking shoulder-length hair, Itzy’s Ryujin is often seen styling her hair in different colours and styles. From brightly bleached colours to highlights and extremely dark colours, this girl has definitely done it all.

Styling tip: Light coloured highlights look especially good with shoulder-length hair. Recent trends such as the half & half, where the lighter bleached colour is on the bottom of your hair and a natural looking colour is on the top, would look ultra good with medium length hair!

2. Itzy’s Lia

Famous for pulling off the shoulder-length hair since the Korean survival show, Idol School, Saerom has also tried various hair lengths from a bob to long hair. However, nothing beats her iconic shoulder-length hair look. Even her members from Fromis_9 has expressed their love for this length on her!

Styling tip: When dealing with shoulder-length hair, make sure that your hair always has volume. This helps to ensure that your mid-length hair is accentuating your face shape. As seen on Fromis_9’s Saerom, volume is emphasised on her roots to prevent her hair from looking too flat!

From her legendary ahjumma (a term to address middle-aged women in Korean) haircut in her audition clip from more than 10 years ago, IU has definitely come a long way with various hairstyles.

Styling tip: Layers, layers, and more layers! This not only creates more volume in the hair but also makes it easier to style.
