The Clark Cut is a hairstyle that is on the shorter side, which can give off a very manly look! Many men have been opting for this look these days. However, because it can come off as a little strong, hairstylists recommend to wear jeans or a denim jacket to appear a bit more casual. 

2. Half Cut

Brighter-toned colors like this vintage orange color and wine red have been a super hot trend recently not only in Korea but also globally! Many Korean celebrities have been sporting this color, especially idols, as it gives the perfect pop of color! It's also an easier color to achieve as it won't require multiple bleach sessions.

2. Khaki Brown

This cool-toned khaki brown color is one of the most popular colors in Korea for both men and women as it is very natural. It's also known to enhance that glass skin effect, which Koreans love! This color is achieved by adding a small amount of green to a dark brown dye mix to reduce any redness in the brown. It's a great color to try out if you want something new but not too out-there! 

3. Beige Blonde

Another super trendy bold hair color is this Ash Violet, which many fans loved on NewJeans Hanni. It's very feminine yet chic and a very unique color! It's also popular among Koreans because the ash-toned purple hues that are applied on bleached hair combat any brassiness or redness that commonly shows once black hair is bleached. It's a great way to stand out this summer!
