FAQ: What Haircut Should Asians Get?

1. How To Ask For A Two Block Haircut?

A two-block haircut is a very popular kpop hairstyle. You have probably seen it on some of your favorite celebrities, the perfect cut if you can follow trends! The characteristics of this haircut are that it is sleek, short & defined on the sides. However, the crown is a lot longer. Plenty of barbers know about this hairstyle since it is a classic Chinese haircut. Just try and bring a picture with you to the salon. This way, your barber will know what you’re trying to achieve, and what is your vision. Tell them if you want layers and get the haircut that suits your facial features.

2. How To Cut Korean Male Hairstyle?

If you want a k-pop hairstyle or you are intrigued by Korean men hairstyle options, you will always leave your top messy, textured & long. Korean hairstyle ideas are often very defined & cut only on the sides. These haircuts often have a lot of bangs, fringe, as well as undercut details. Asain hairstyles are often very specific & defined. You will never see an Asian rocking something that is not popular in their culture, or the k-pop industry. This is why you can spot a lot of Asian fade or Asian undercut hairdos.

3. What Is The Most Popular Haircut In Asia?

Asia is so big, which is why you can’t name just one hairdo that is popular within this country. However and mostly due to their tradition, you will often see guys rocking either a thick crop or a short quiff hairdo. Some other hairdos that are popular and perfect for those who want versatility are:

  • High taper fade haircut
  • Spiky hair
  • Faux hawk
  • High fade
  • Japanese samurai bun

4. Is Asians Hair Different To Cut?

The truth is that Asians have thick hair which lacks volume. How many Asians do you know that have wavy or curly textures? Yeah, didn’t think so. Often a barber will lack knowledge of Asian hairdos, which is why they can be hard to cut. The cuticle layer in Asians is thicker with more compact cuticle cells than that in Caucasians. If your hair type is thick yet straight and you wish to transition from a medium length hairdo into a man bun or top knot look be careful when booking your barber or your next hairstylist.

Men who enjoy textured hairstyles & who have medium-long hair will enjoy styling their hair in a messy pompadour. These hairstyles are very fashion-forward, but they need to be worn by guys who have naturally thicker strands, as well as a lot of volume.

On That Note

Guys can go for a lot of trendy hairstyles. As you can see, Asian men’s hairstyles are very simple & not too hard to achieve. Cuts are a lot shorter & natural + Asian guys don’t love a lot of quiffs, spikes, or super tacky details. Men with short-medium hair can easily style their everyday haircuts. The only important thing is for you to get a precise haircut every 3-4 weeks to maintain the look. This will allow you to look polished at all times and to show off a modern and healthy hairdo everywhere you go!
