There’s no doubt about it – K-pop is taking over the world. With its addictive beats, perfected choreography, and incredible performers who put their heart and soul into every performance, it’s not hard to see why. One similarity that seems to run through practically every K-pop band is the eye-catching hair colors. And we’re not just talking one color that stays for years, we’re talking about constant changing and experimenting. Many fans have also worked out that a hair change often signals that new music is approaching. So if a band releases lots of new music, that equals a LOT of color changes. Did you know that the colors are never picked at random? Stylists work closely with record labels for months to work out which band member should sport which color. But let’s talk about you – have you got some cool K-pop hair color ideas in mind or do you need inspiration for your new look? Let’s begin!

K-pop hair color ideas

How do you know which color to choose? The sky’s the limit! There are so many K-pop hair colors out there that it can be hard to know where to start. What about sweet and innocent pastel shades such as pink, lavender, or blue? Or more intense colors such as bright orange, illuminous green, or fiery red? K-pop bands have been known to leave the top part of their hair natural and simply dip-dye the ends. This is a great idea if you’re a bit hesitant about going the whole way at first. Maybe not seen quite as often in the K-pop community is the use of several colors at once à la mermaid hair or oil slick hair, but there’s nothing stopping you attempting these looks iyou’re up for the challenge.

Preparing your locks for K-pop hair

While some shades can be applied right away, to achieve your K-pop idol’s hair look you may need some additional prep depending on your current hair color and the shade you’re looking to achieve. Unless you have really light locks, you may  have to bleach your hair  first. Luckily, it’s quite straightforward to bleach your hair at home so you can get K-pop hair as quickly as possible. Bear in mind that it could take multiple sessions to get the desired shade depending on how dark your original hair color is. Try göt2b Bleach It, which lightens up to 8 levels, so you’ll be ready for that new color in no time.

K-pop hair dyes – what’s your bias?

Ready to take on your new K-pop hair color? göt2b® Color Pöp can help achieve the K-pop hair of your dreams. Available in silver, red, purple, blue, mint, and pink, this intense color & care mask deposits bright or pastel color onto your hair. The unisex mask is easy to apply and should be left on your hair for between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on how vibrant you’d like the results to be. You can then enjoy your cool pop hair for up to six washes (three washes for the silver color) and rest assured that your locks have been well cared for thanks to the 2-in-1 conditioning and color formula, infused with Panthenol, coconut and apricot kernel oils.
