There’s been a huge social media rise in the popularity of the Kawaii and Japanese influenced hairstyles. There are countless YouTube videos and blogs talking about how to get these types of hairstyles, easily. The fun thing about the Kawaii and/or Japanese influenced hairstyles is that they’re not overly complicated to achieve, but have such a cute outcome. If you’re new to the Kawaii hairstyle trend, we’re sharing some of our favorite Kawaii hair attributes with you so you can start incorporating the Kawaii hairstyles today!
One of the biggest influences in the Kawaii hairstyles is the addition of hair accessories. Headbands and bows are commonly used and added to the hair. A hairstyle as simple as a ponytail is suddenly given a fun Kawaii twist by adding a bold bow to it. Additionally, wearing your hair straight can suddenly be given a Kawaiian boost with a headband. They’re little touches that give that fun Kawaii/Japanese vibe to your hairstyle and are super easy ways to add the element to your hair without much extra effort or time investment.
Another big influence of Kawaii hairstyles is the blunt haircuts. Between a straight, blunt layered cut and blunt bangs the lines of this hairstyle influence are strong. Much of this goes back to the Japanese influence of the Kawaii culture and beauty trends. If you look up images of Kawaii hairstyles the first few images that pop up will be blunt hairstyles. That being said, blunt bangs are super common throughout Kawaii and Japanese hairstyles. Much like accessorizing adding blunt bangs is an effortless way to adapt the vibe of the trend without needing much styling or time to achieve the look.
Pops of Color
Another fun hairstyle that’s been making waves in the Kawaii hairstyle realm is the pop of color in your hair. Many Kawaii hairstyle ladies are coloring their hair in bright, bold colors. Most of the pictures you’ll see are shades of pink and purple, and they’re actually in more of a pastel shade of the colors. While a lot of hairstyle colors have been about vibrant colors, the Kawaii colors are bold and vibrant but in a lighter color tone. Adding to the fun, easy, girly vibe of the Kawaii and Japanese influence, when these colors are worn with a simple blunt haircut they’re effortless but make a statement easily.
