10 Female K-Pop Idols Who Rock Short Hair

The weather is warming up, and you know what that means – short hair is in! There’s nothing like a nice breezy cut to lighten up for a spring/summer look, and these ten idols totally rock it. Whether you need inspiration for your own look or you’re just here because you can’t get enough of these lovely ladies, let’s get started!

1. TWICE’s Jeongyeon

Starting this list off on a high note, TWICE’s lead vocalist Jeongyeon has been known to rock short hair throughout her career. From a cute crop to a sleek bob, Jeongyeon is an endless source of short hair inspo. This messy-chic bob held back with a claw clip is super on-trend in 2021, and it’s a great style for summer!

2. Oh My Girl’s Binnie

Another constant source of short hair goals, Binnie is always recognizable by her adorable haircuts and sweet styling. Her soft bangs add to the cuteness of the look, and the slight curl at the end of her bob draws all the attention to her features. With the addition of the headband, this style couldn’t be any more chic!


SinB is well-known for her super sophisticated look, and this sleek bob is definitely a defining point. The “lob” style perfectly complements her face shape, and it’s a style she’s been known to rock on and off throughout her career. If you’re looking for a more low-maintenance short style, a cut à la SinB is the way to go!

4. (G)I-DLE’s Yuqi

Yuqi is a more recent (but totally welcome!) addition to the ranks of ladies who are slaying short hair. She took the plunge into short-hair-stardom earlier this year, and her cut was supposedly inspired by Haku from the Studio Ghibli film “Spirited Away.” Yuqi could certainly pass for a real-life Haku!

5. Red Velvet’s Wendy

This is the hairstyle that took the K-pop world by storm! There was tons of buzz about Wendy’s hairstyle when she debuted it back in 2019, and salons all over Korea were getting requests for the “Wendy cut.” The addition of the light blonde pieces peeking through make this style the perfect combination of edgy and adorable.

6. IZ*ONE’s Miyawaki Sakura

Sakura had beautiful long locks at the beginning of IZ*ONE’s career, but this shorter cut is arguably even more flattering. The rounded shape and soft bangs bring all the attention to her face, and the subtle braids at the crown of her head in this particular look bring forward her charming point – her adorable ears!

7. MAMAMOO’s Hwasa

MAMAMOO’s curvaceous queen Hwasa looks amazing with this chin-grazing wavy style, which has the perfect balance of texture and bounce. The longer pieces at the front combined with the shorter cut at the back works to accentuate her V-shaped jawline perfectly, and highlights all of her amazing features!

8. GWSN’s Miya

Miya has been making waves ever since GWSN’s debut with her edgy look, and she’s totally rocking it. Her shaggy, layered cut shows off her ear piercings really well, and all that texture gives some seriously cool movement when she’s flexing her dance moves. She’s definitely a standout visual!

9. ITZY’s Ryujin

There are so many reasons why this fancam for “WANNABE” is iconic, and Ryujin’s sapphire-blue cut is definitely part of it! The sweet-and-sassy crop is just so perfectly Ryujin, and the color makes her clear skin seem even more glass-like. Plus, the length perfectly accentuated the main “point” dance for this choreography – her shoulders!

10. BLACKPINK’s Lisa

You’d be hard-pressed to find a style that BLACKPINK’s Lisa can’t rock, but this super-short bob is definitely a look to remember. She looks very doll-like with this sweet and chic cut, and the lighter pieces underneath frame her face in a way that manages to bring all the attention to her face without being too distracting.
