We not only like to be inspired by the ingenious skincare routines of Korean women, but we also have a trendy hairstyle now: Korean Bangs.
Korean women of fashion always seem to us to be one step ahead when it comes to trends. Be it in fashion, beauty but also in terms of trendy hairstyles. Of course, we love the French pony variants like curtain bangs or wear them in the 90s sleek style. But for spring we are particularly taken with a loose, light cut: the Korean "see-through" bangs, also known as air bangs.
As the name suggests, the "K-Bangs" flash through the forehead, so they don't completely shield it. This is what makes it so modern and perfect for spring when it wonderfully complements airy dresses and delicate colors.
At the same time, it is a bit longer and reaches almost to the eyes. The Korean fringe is not only characterized by the fact that it is very thin and long, it also frames the face very delicately and thus ensures soft facial features. This works by creating a smooth transition to the rest of the hair through steps on the sides.
However, some prefer a small intermediate step, which is set at about the height of the ears.
While many fringe hairstyles have tended to be a little wilder in recent months, the Korean version is more focused on a neat, sometimes slightly curved look. In addition, the fringe has a delicate volume but never sticks out far from the forehead.
Korean bangs are perfect for women with thinner, straight hair that tends to be short on volume. But even with a lot of thick hair, the thin fringe can create a more airy look by thinning it out a lot. Since the bangs are so fine, they should at least be washed or refreshed frequently, otherwise, Korean bangs are not very styling-intensive.
You can either style the bangs straight or slightly curved.
For the smooth version, the slightly damp fringe can simply be blow-dried horizontally over a medium-sized round brush and then loosened up a bit with your fingers. But this also works without heat by simply rolling up the damp hair on a large curler and then drying it for five to ten minutes. In the end, simply sweep the side strands to the sides with a comb or your fingers to intensify the see-through look.
For the curved version, the Koreans usually use a straightening iron and gradually pull the strands slightly inwards and to the side. This results in a slight swing at the end of the strand, which is then arranged with your fingers.
If you have decided on an intermediate step on the sides, style them with straightening iron, also slightly curved outwards.
