It seems like there’s a new trend emerging every day when it comes to K-pop style, and there’s a noticeable pattern emerging when it comes to your favorite female idols – hair bands! They’re a great way to get creative when it comes to hair and can be used in a variety of ways to add a touch of whimsy to any look. Here are just a few great examples!
From teasers to stage performances to the music video for her solo debut with “POP!”, TWICE’s Nayeon wore many bows – so there’s plenty of inspiration to choose from! This look features two thin, long pieces of ribbon braided asymmetrically through her hair. One is tied at the top and one is tied at the bottom for a twist on the typical pigtail.
Short hair can sometimes be harder to style, but fear not – Gaeul is here and she has tons of ways to style! In this performance of IVE’s latest comeback song “After LIKE,” she sports a small shiny ribbon that’s almost the same shade as her hair braided in. It’s a subtle but cool way to add an eye-catching sparkle to her hair. She also proves that bows work on bobs too!

Girls’ Generation’s YoonA
YoonA has long been a fan of the hair bow, and she proves that there are plenty of ways to wear one while still remaining sophisticated! In this “FORVER 1” performance, she wore it clipped to the side to pull her hair back and emphasize her side parted hairstyle. She has lots of other examples on her Instagram that she can use as inspo too!
Choi Ye Na
Choi Ye Na, a former IZ*ONE member, has been gaining a lot of attention with her bold styling ever since her solo debut. This hairstyle for her “SMARTPHONE” appearance is balanced by Choi Ye Na’s standards, but it’s still super cute! She has two French braids braided into her hair and then she rolled the braids into two low buns. A bit like colored extensions without the need for extensions!
Kep1ers Huening Bahiyyih
Another big fan of the bow, Huening Bahiyyih, went super-sized with his accessory for this “Up!” stage from Kep1er’s latest comeback. By keeping the bow low on the back of her head, she gives off some serious Disney princess vibes without the bow distracting too much from her beautiful features. A ribbon never fails to brighten up her look!
Rosé has been a big fan of the topknot lately, as evidenced by both her Instagram posts and some recent performances of BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom.” The style looks even more unique when she adds a ribbon, and she’s even proven versatility with just the one style! By passing the ribbon through the bun or just putting a bow at the back, she gives completely different vibes.
