We see a lot of trends come and go when it comes to K-pop fashion. However, there is one hair color that makes its way onto the scene every season: red. Now, while this trend may flop on some, this is hardly the case for K-pop idols--we see many instances of K-pop artists looking fabulous with red hair. So, let's check out the 10 that made my list of idols that can pull this off!
When I think of red hair, one of the first K-pop artists that come to mind is Kikwang. He always looks great regardless of how he styles his hair--from a perm to red, he's always looking sharp. Kikwang has a strong stage presence, and red adds an extra fire to his image as he kills the stage with his dance moves. Color is always a nice change up, and this particular color fits him nicely (even when he's making aegyo faces that match his bubbly personality)!
SISTAR's Bora has such a likable face that it would be hard to find a look that didn't suit her. Red hair is no exception as she rocks all shades of red flawlessly. Although bright red looks great on her, the dark red hair she had during the, "Give It To Me," promotions were arguably her best look yet. Her soft features complement the color nicely.
When U-Kiss's Hoon came out with his new red hair, it was definitely a nice treat. It gives him a more masculine vibe--he still has the same pure-looking face with a new added element to it. As a main vocalist for U-Kiss, red adds an extra pop allowing him to stand out on stage. Red compliments Hoon's image, and I'm looking forward to what new looks he has for us coming up.
After School Jooyeon
After School's Jooyeon first caught my eye when she had red hair. She looks gorgeous, and a little bit exotic, with the color. Her hair especially matched the groups concept/stage outfits for "First Love" perfectly, especially with the half-cornrows. She has a gorgeous face that exudes innocence, so red adds the perfect amount of edge that fits the fierce K-pop idol image she portrays.
I don't know whether it's because B1A4's Jinyoung is my bias, but I swear this guy looks great with any color hair (well blonde and red at least). I guess it's hard to go wrong with a face like his, but especially during their "Beautiful Target" days (check out the Japanese version's MV), his red hair added another element. Red adds just the right amount of playfulness and youth to his look.
2NE1 Park Bom
2NE1's Park Bom looks great with all types of hair styles. One color that she seems to repeat often is red--probably because red suits her extremely well. The bright red fits the edginess of 2NE1, and it gives her a feminine and badass look at the same time, which also embodies her stage image and presence. Red is the perfect fit to her strong unique vocals.
Big Bang G-Dragon
G-Dragon always manages to find his spot on these sorts of lists, but considering he's one of Korea's leading fashion icons, this should come as no surprise to anyone. Even when he rocks red hair, he styles his hair in all sorts of crazy ways. From the all-red bright do to his horn-do in "Monster," he knows how to artistically create new styles and looks. He is a fireball when he performs on stage, and red suits his passionate personality he performs with.
Anyone that can pull off red hair even brighter than Pippi Longstocking deserves an award. I was a little shocked when I first saw Krystal's hair in the f(x) teasers for "Rum Pum Pum," but definitely got used to the look as the promotions went on. Krystal's look is so versatile that she looks good with any hair color, and red is no exception. She knows how to tone down her outfits to really make her hair act as a statement accessory.
EXO Luhan is so cute with his big eyes; he reminds me of an anime character. He definitely stands out (even more so than his other group mates), with red hair. It adds the slightest flair, giving him an edgy yet continuously adorable look at the same time. And when he styles it (like he did in the left image), he looks extra sophisticated as well!
Girls' Generation Tiffany
Girls' Generation's Tiffany looks super happy in the middle image above and she is my #1 on this list. This girl definitely deserves the top spot when it comes to red hair. She looks so glamorous--she's like a real life version of Ariel. This girl knows fashion, and she definitely rocks red hair like a true fashionista. The dark red color she's been rocking goes great with her porcelain face, making her look flawless as usual.
And that rounds out the top 10. Did your bias make it on the list? Who did I leave out? Comment below!
