Asian hairstyle can be quite a challenge, there are cuts for the shortest and longest hair, there are no boundaries when it comes to dyeing your tresses and it can be hard to achieve if you’re not from Japan or Korea and you don’t know any Asian hairstylist within your area. But I’m quite sure that there are a lot of very talented non-Asian hairstylist or barbers that can help you with your dilemma, and you to give you further insight, here are six cute Asian hairstyles for boys that you can look into, maybe one these will be your choice for your next new haircut.
1. Classic schoolboy cut
This hairstyle is what we usually see on anime, manga and even J-dramas and K-dramas. This is perfect for those who has a round face and the fringe can make you look younger then your actual age. I'm sure you've seen the evidence of this since there are a lot k-dramas and j-dramas that transitions from high school to adulthood, and the actors are able to look younger with this hairstyle with no problem. This haircut can be worn with a neat look or tousle it up a bit for more volume and style.
2. 90s heartthrob hairstyle
This hairstyle was a huge thing in the 90s in both anime and real life, and even boybands in the west, but it's undeniable that this cut completely timeless and will never go out of style. The heart shaped parting sure has its appeal to the ladies in the past up to the present, though the said parting should not necessarily be on the middle, it can be on the side for more style or appeal. This cut can be stylized into something with waves, curls, have it dyed or just let it loose and carefree.
3. Messy medium cut
There's something so appealing about messy hairstyle for guys, this style is not too short but not too long. I think this cute would be the most convenient because you don’t need to spend a lot of time in styling your hair, just give it s little tousle then you’re good to go. Having some small waves or even a perm would also give your hair a bit of a messy look, so keep that in mind. If you want your hair to retain its “all over the place” look, you can try applying it with some hair spray so it can last longer. A lot of young boys and even much older men like young adults has been using this hairstyle for a more ragged or “manly” look.
4. Side swept fringe
Another commonly seen hairstyle for teenage boys and young adults. And who could blame them? This cut would certainly make anybody cute and appealing. You’ll also be familiar with this hairstyle if you watch a lot of J-dramas and K-dramas as well as anime (This cut is usually worn by the “Prince” or the “most popular guys in school” type), so it can be quite stereotypical to some but anyone can wear this hairstyle as long as you’re comfortable with it.
5. K-pop style haircut
As the name suggests, these are Korean pop inspired hair cuts that are distinguished by its slick style and bold hair colors like pink or grey. You’d often see these with almost all male K-pop artists, and it certainly makes them stand out on stage at all times. You can stand out too by doing this kind of hair for yourself, if you’re into a much bolder look, that is. K-pop hairstyle can be a little bit more simple, but the said simple style can fall into a much more different category. If you’re up for this look, you can check a lot of reference online so you’ll know what style you’ll end up with.
6. Long layered Asian cut
Last but not the least, are these cute hairstyles that would be a lot more longer than the rest. Layered haircut is a huge thing in Asia so you can imagine the appeal of this one. You would see a lot of Japanese and Korean actors wearing this look, and we could say that it definitely is a head turner. You can let this style loose or you can tie it back in a bun or a ponytail.
Obvious difference between Asian and Caucasian hairstyles
You may have noticed that somehow, Asians have a more structured, textured and spiked up hairstyles than people from the West. You may look and stare at someone’s hair from any angle and tell yourself, “Yep, that’s so Asian”. There are cuts that only Asian do embrace like full on bangs that completely covered their foreheads that some Westerners are not that comfortable with. Caucasian also have more strong features than Asians, whereas people of the latter have a more “youthful” look, so hairstyles that are more likely suited for teenage boys and anything beyond that caliber will still work despite their age. Caucasians are known to have more silky and soft hair whereas Asians have a more tougher texture, that’s why some hairstyle would only work for them.
It is important to know which cut would suit best for you, you can consider the shape of your face, for instance. You can ask your local hairstylist or barber for some insight or look for a reference online so you’ll have an idea about what you want and what you think will make you look good and confident.
