Fb Featured Image For Short Hair Celebs

It’s hard not to be tempted to just snip it all off, especially with practically everyone on your feed rocking the new cool ‘do.

To ease your transition to the #shorthairlife, and to make saying goodbye to your precious locks less painful, we’ve gathered some (very convincing, may we add) hair-spiration from our favourite influencers on Instagram.

These 20 Instagrammers make short hair look like the ultimate hair goal, and give us an idea on the best ways to style short hair.

South Korean cosmetic model Kang TaeRi would be the perfect muse of the adorable bob look. She sports her signature hairstyle with lighter brown hair colors like her recent yellow blonde, with bangs and curled-in ends for a doll-like appearance.

Jazz up short hair with headbands or caps – like what she does – that double up as a cover when you have one of those bad hair days.

This South Korean beauty and lifestyle YouTuber has made the chic, layered short bob her own. Suited for Singapore’s humid climate, this style can be worn with bangs for a pure, innocent look, or without for a sleek, work-ready look.

3. @todayis_wendy

Red Velvet’s Wendy debuted this shaggy, multi-layered shoulder length ‘do with bangs and it instantly became her signature look, winning over the hearts of fans for its “undone” quality.

If your face is wider, this cut has face-framing layers that make your face look a lot smaller, and it’s also long enough to be tied back for a stylish yet practical look.

Not one to shy away from daring colors, YouTuber Sage sports her versatile lob in bright colors and different styles that you can certainly take reference from.

5. @juuna

Influencer and creative director of Japanese fashion label Etre Tokyo, Junna proves that thick-haired girls can rock short hair too!

For a effortless, windswept look like hers in the first post, tousle your hair using a texturising spray, or with a curling iron if you have pin straight hair.

Doesn’t EXID’s former member Hyerin look like a doll in this hairstyle? For this ethereal look, get your fringe to be above brow length, and go for a darker color like black brown.

The Jazz Age may be literally be a century ago, but this Parisenne model is bringing the 1920s back with a chic flapper girl-esque ‘do. For a more modern look, try brow-length choppy bangs.

8. @sola5532

If “edgy” is what you’re going for, try the charismatic Korean fashion model Sora’s signature mullet for a daring look.

9. @ponysmakeup

Even though she’s since grown out her hair, this talented South Korean makeup artist and YouTuber had been part of the short hair squad for many glorious months, giving us hair envy as she carries off pink, purple and blonde hair with ease.

Look at her older posts and you’ll also be able to pick up makeup looks that complement short hairstyles.

10. @sylsylnoc

For a Singapore represent, we have Night Owl Cinematics’ Sylvia, who isn’t afraid of going for highlighter hues like turquoise, blue, green, pink and purple – all of which jazz up her short ‘do. Not for the faint of heart, or rather, scalp.

If you’re hesitant to try out standout shades right after the big chop, take inspiration from Korea’s former “little sister”, IU! This long bob can be pulled of by anyone, and can be worn with or without bangs. Take a cue from the Hotel Del Luna actress and curl your bangs or baby hairs slightly for a unique look.

Sport the coveted off-duty model look by copying Korean-American model Irene Kim’s center-parted, blunt bob that goes slightly below her ears. Wear this look poker straight and wait for the compliments to roll in.

Thank you for these amazing photos Hedi @hedislimane @celine

If you can’t make up your mind to go short for a while or to grow your hair out, this is the perfect compromise that still looks super chic. This style sported by Blackpink’s youngest member Lisa makes her look magazine cover-ready 24/7.

Curl your new hair all over (including the bangs) for a more feminine and airy look like Girl’s Generation’s Sunny.

15. @sooyoungchoi

If you’re more of a Soo Young fan, take a leaf out of her style book and try a deep side part that makes your face look angular and smaller!

16. @twicestagram

Despite growing out her hair due to fans’ requests, our favourite look on TWICE’s Jung Yeon remains her iconic boyish pixie cut in her rookie days. How effortlessly stylish!

17. @him_ella0618

The former Taiwanese girl group member Ella opted for a more demure and ladylike look with an auburn color, paired with a slightly wavy long lob.

18. @jiaqiwoo

What’s better than one? Two, of course! Grab a sister (or your best friend) to twin with, like Singapore’s favourite celeb-sisters.

Known for her innocent and pure image, this popular South Korean actress shows that brightly coloured short hair can ooze girly charm too.

Lastly, we have to talk about Song Hye Kyo’s many variations of the short hair look – all of which she looks equally good in. She wears her ‘do in a C-curl, narrow near her cheekbones and voluminous at the chin for the illusion of an even smaller face.
