All About the “Comma Hair” Trend
This currently trending men’s hairstyle in South Korea is a favorite among many kpop idols and Korean actors overtaking the world with the Hallyu wave. Members of kpop groups EXO, Got7, and BTS; along with actors of kdramas: Moonlight Embraces the Clouds, Remember, and movies : I Married an Anti-Fan, Master, along with other numerous celebrities, have sported this chic, classy style, and it is quickly becoming the hottest 2016 hair craze. This hairstyle complements an effortlessly casual or even a business formal look for any event. Here are a few Korean actors and kpop idols who have made this look their own at formal gatherings, photoshoots, and while going about their everday lives.
What is the so called “comma hair” craze?
This trend is called the “comma” hair trend because of how the hairstyle looks with the front portion of the hair curled inwards, resembling a comma. This trendy hairstyle helps to make your face look smaller and more angular, while also putting emphasis on your jawline.
Here are a few Korean celebrities who have been seen rocking this new hair trend for men.
Chanyeol of popular kpop group EXO sported this hairstyle at many events, including Monster and Lotto promotions. His comma hair is emphasized by his wavy hair texture, and the comma section of his hair is curled inwards, but not to the extent that it’s a C shape. It’s on the more natural side, and his clothes also complement a more casual look.
Mark of kpop boy band Got7 also sports this hair trend during fan meetings and promotional activities, and most recently during Hard Carry promotions. His “comma hair” is not as obvious, and gives a softer feel to his style. His messy-wavy hair gives volume to the comma portion of his hair, and brightens up the left side of his face. Also, Mark’s deep, side part gives him a more “bad-boy” aura.
The golden maknae, Jungkook, of rising group BTS (aka Bangtan Boys) was first seen sporting this hairstyle during the War of Hormone era. Jungkook’s hairstyle is a bit different than those seen before in the way that the “comma” portion of his hair starts from the root of his middle, not side, part. Although he has a middle part, he doesn’t curl both sides inwards, but one inwards and the other outwards. This gives a “I woke up like this” feel. Unlike the others’ before, Jungkook’s hair is more straight than wavy.
Park Bo Gum of recently ended Moonlight Embraces the Clouds played the role of a playful prince in the Korean drama, but challenges the role of a sophisticated man in his recent photoshoot with SURE. Park is seen with the comma hair look as well. The “comma” portion of his hairstyle is much smaller and not as noticeable, but once again, the deep side part accentuates the “comma.” His hair is also seen gelled back for a more classy look.
Young actor Yoo Seung Ho, who played a boy fighting for his father’s innocence in Remember: War of the Son, had this look for almost the whole drama. The “comma” portion of his hair is not as accentuated. Instead, like Jungkook’s previous hairstyle, Yoo Seung Ho took the left side of his hair and brought it in towards the right side of his face, making it look like a mini comma. This helps to balance the look while making his face look much smaller.
Veteran actor Kang Dong Won has starred in numerous blockbuster hits, with his most recent movie being Master. Kang Dong Won has also participated in this hair trend, and was seen wearing this look at numerous movie conferences and meetups. The comma in his hairstyle is more accentuated than the others’ shown before, and his hair is mostly straight except for the volume given in the front. Almost more than half of his front hair is curled downwards in a C shape, almost looking like bangs. However, he leaves space on the left side of his face so as not to look too “stuffy” and to brighten his image. Kang Dong Won emphasizes this style with his jet-black hair color, which gives a classy, manly feel to his image.
This new Korean hair craze is questioning all those other hair trends only suitable for girls. The trendiest style is the comma hair style, which guys can also be a part of! Get inspiration from your favorite Kdrama actor or Kpop group idol and rock the comma hairstyle!
