A bright, coral pinkish hair colour is sure to make a striking impression on others around you, or simply to impress your crush.

Otherwise,

When in doubt, go for warmer shades! Whether that means darker hair colours (auburn and chocolate) or lighter hair colours (honey and gold), warm colours give you a healthy glow to your look. Switch your ashy tones to caramel tones and you will look youthful instantly.

As you can see from the Korean celebrity hairstyles, 2019 is going to be all about loose curls in mostly natural hair colours and some shades of red. The Pantone color of the year is ‘Living Coral’, a pastel-like peach colour that exudes elegance and femininity.

1) Loose Wavy Hair

The ‘hippy’ or hipster wave perm trend first started when Kim Go Eun had a fully curled hairstyle for the hit k-drama, ‘Cheese in the Trap’. In contrast to the natural looking perms, her curly perm stood out and definitely influenced the subsequent hair trends in the city area.

Now, people opt for subtler, looser wave perms inspired by that iconic style. This hair is permed in loose waves, cut in layers that will frame your face and neck, which results in a softer and graceful look. A distinct characteristic of this hairstyle is the layering done with a body perm. The perm is done in several layers to flatter the face shape and add volume to the hair. You can achieve this look by perming your hair at our Korean hair salon, Du Sol Beauty in Singapore or recreate it at home with a hair iron, available at our e-stores. For those of you who are unsure how to, our Korean director and senior hair designers have come out with a quick fix using a brush iron!

For hair colour, you can see that natural hair colours such as black and dark browns are usually preferred, although you can rock variants of reds if you want to dye your hair. Choosing the right hair colour can make or break your hairstyle, you wouldn’t want to be stuck with a hairstyle that dulls your complexion. Ideally, the perfect hair colour should brighten your complex and work with your features.

2) Voluminous Wavy Hair

The curly perm hairstyle will continue to be a strong focal point for 2019. This next hairstyle for you is a voluminous wavy hairstyle that is focused on the bottom of the hair. It is designed such that the curls fall around your face to give a slimmer look. You can get this look by getting a c curl perm.

3) Layered Perm Hair

If you feel that bold wavy perms are not for you, there are other types of perms that you can look at. Another permed hairstyle we recommend is the layered perm hair, which is an all-time favourite hairstyle that is suitable for all occasions including work.

This effortlessly permed chic look is mostly done with long and medium hair, however, also produces beautiful results at different lengths.

For bangs this year, they tend to lean to be more wispy and separated which can give you a youthful look. If you live a place like Singapore with a tropical climate, this style is great for you as you don’t have to worry about your bangs sticking together. Maintaining your bangs can get quite costly over time since you have to trim them every few weeks. If you’re feeling bold, why not try to DIY your own bangs?

For a formal and mature look, you can also tie your hair into a ponytail and leave the front down to frame your hair and fit your jawline.

Surely, hair trends come and go, as they are closely influenced by the international fashion scene, particularly from Seoul. These are just some hairstyles that have caught our attention throughout the year. What other hairstyles do you think should be on this list?

If you do try out one of these statement hairstyles, be sure to give your hair some care afterwards! Be it a salon keratin treatment or home care treatment, you should definitely treat your hair to restore its shine and moisture after any chemical procedures.
