Trend Alert 2012: Crayon-Colored Hair
2012 has definitely been a colorful year in K-Pop!
While brightly-hued hair is nothing new, Hyosung's purple, Jia's pink, Park Bom's red, and Key's rainbow stripes won't be forgotten any time soon. But since all trends eventually do 'fade out', here's a quick re-cap of the idols who have attempted the crayon-colored hairstyles!
February - March
Big Bang kicked things off in February when photos from their New York filming locations were unveiled, which revealed their new colorful hairstyles. T.O.P's icy blue was a real dye job, while G Dragon's colors were all extentions he could swap out on a whim. And boy did he swap them out! Between the little pieces he wore under hats and the longer pieces he wore to create his "seaweed" look, he kept us all guessing. Meanwhile, rookie group SPICA's Kim Boa impressed with her sophisticated red color. In March, B1A4 came back with a new, mature image, and Jinyoung brought his own shade of red.
U-KISS' Kiseop jumped on the red hair bandwagon in April, while B.A.P's Zelo and Super Junior's Eunhyuk brought us some pastel pink. T.O.P, still blue-haired, brought his own version of hot pink- in his eyebrows, while U-KISS' AJ did some white-painted eyebrows, along with putting bright pink streaks in his new, cropped hairstyle. B.A.P's Yong Guk tried out purple hair with black bangs, while bandmate Daehyun opted for a pale lavender.
In May, we saw even more red. Girls' Generation's Tiffany looked absolutely fabulous with her new 'do for her TaeTiSeo promotions, while G Dragon's bright red, 5:5-style hair wasn't a fan favorite. It looked great as a mohawk in the video for "Monster", but didn't do him any favors when he wore it down with a center part.
G.NA brought in a richer shade of pink than we'd seen so far, while Lime of rookie group Hello Venus introduced a minty green into the mix. JB of rookie duo JJ Project showed off a variety of bright colors in his bangs in the video for"Bounce".
Red has really been the color of 2012, as we saw even more idols sporting it in June. Wonder Girls' Sun was wearing it, as was rookie group 4k's KiSu. Wonder Girls' Yenny gave us our first orange dye job of the year, while Lim took on some fluffy, blue pigtails.
More than any other month, however, July is turning into the month for technicolor hair- it seems like everyone's wearing it these days!
In their newly-released video for "Beautiful Night", B2ST is colorful from head to toe. Junhyung's got dark blue hair, Hyunseung's caught on to the red trend, and Yoseob's gone orange. B.A.P, who seem determined to use every possible shade of hair dye before the year's out, saw Yong Guk take on his own pinkish shade of red (which was only for the 'No Mercy' teaser photos- he's dyed it back to black now), while Zelo went for a light blue. NU'EST's JR has been playing with some temporary colors in his bangs- in this instance, he went for a faded blue.
Teen Top's L.Joe was purple for a little while, but seems to have gone to brown since then. Maknae Changjo has gone red, while Ricky's taken on blue and Chunji's dyed his bangs orange. Hyojun of A-JAX is sporting a red mohawk for their "Hot Game" promotions, while Seungjin's gone for a teal blue. Leader Hyunggon has opted for a dark orange.
Jiminel of the yet-to-debut A.O.A, has been seen with green ombre hair. T-ara's Hyomin had pink hair for the teaser photos and music video for "Day by Day, but she's since ditched the pink to film her upcoming drama. New member Areum has red through the bottom of her long hair, while Qri's gone for jade green. Gaeul of Flashe, who just released their first single, has long orange hair, while bandmate Songhee has pink streaks throughout her own hair.
Jo Kwon has been going back and forth between mint blue and black in his promotions for "I'm Da One" and "Animal". After letting his red fade, G Dragon was blonde for a little while before adopting a cotton-candy pink color. Shindong of Super Junior has also gone for a soft pink, but only in his bangs. 2NE1's Dara is taking full advantage of her half-shaved hairdo, using brightly colored extentions that she can change whenever she wants. Upcoming rookie group EvoL is in on the dyed hair action as well, with Say's half red/half blonde style, while bandmate Jucy has gone for a bright orange.
