Cloud Curls Korea Hair Trend

Hair salons are going to continue to open in Phase 1 after we exit from Circuit Breaker and the good news is that they will be able to provide a full suite of hairstyling services, which includes perms. Now that we’re ready to emerge into the world with beautiful hair once again, we’re foreseeing “cloud curls”, the most trendy hairstyle in Korea now, to be the look everyone will go for.

Don’t confuse this with the classic “Goddess waves” we know and love, these “cloud curls” is the airy hairstyle our favourite Korean celebrities have been seen sporting.

Unlike its carefully curled and styled predecessor, cloud curls have much larger, looser, and natural-looking waves, with added volume at the top to give the illusion of a smaller face. Plus, they look great and add spice to short or medium hair too!

While this style is best left in your favourite hairstylist’s skilled hands, styling this lightweight and flowing look every day after you’ve got it done at the salon is relatively easy. Check these easy tutorials by K-Beauty YouTuber lamuqe and Korean model Im Bora out!
