Typically, most girl group members are styled with high femininity in mind, sporting long hairstyles that reach the shoulders and below. These 10 idols, however, rocked haircuts as short as most boy group members—and looked amazing while doing it.
1. Jeongyeon (TWICE)
TWICE’s Jeongyeon is one of the idols best known for rocking super-short hair.
She debuted with a pixie cut, and while she’s since showed off her gorgeous long hair, no one can deny that short hair looks great on her.
2. Chaeyoung (TWICE)
TWICE’s Chaeyoung also debuted with short hair, but unlike Jeongyeon, she started out with a bob cut. Later, she bravely went even shorter.
JYP Entertainment actually wanted to Chaeyoung to keep her hair on the longer side, but she ignored the company’s rules and went for this cut she liked.
3. Sunny (Girls’ Generation)
Girls’ Generation’s Sunny has had numerous iconic hairstyles. Her blonde pixie cut with dark tips for “The Boys” era was one of the most memorable.
And who can forget the brightly colored, very short hairstyle she showed off during “I Got a Boy” promotions?
4. Amber (f(x))
Amber from f(x) is one of the few female K-Pop albums who has worn a short haircut throughout her whole career.
Amber has often spoken about the visual limitations that are often imposed on girl groups. She also once noted that she’s actually rather feminine, and that people should’ve judge anyone by their looks.
5. Hyebin (MOMOLAND)
MOMOLAND’s Hyebin has had a few short hairstyles, and her ashy beige pixie cut was one of the most notable.
It looked great tousled and messy as well as sleekly combed down.
6. Dami (Dreamcatcher)
Dreamcatcher’s Dami has a super-short hairstyle that goes perfectly with her edgier rapper image.
She’s had lobs and bobs too, but the pixie cut gives her a certain sense of charm.
7. Miya (GWSN)
When GWSN debuted, Miya caught everyone’s attention for her resemblance to anime characters.
With her stunning visuals and poufy short cut, she’s even been mistaken for a cosplayer in the past.
8. Yebin (DIA)
DIA’s Yebin is an idol who serves completely different visuals with long hair versus short hair.
Some fans didn’t even recognize her when she joined survival show The Unit because her long, dark hair was so different to her short, blonde cut.
9. Hyelin (EXID)
With her cute, soft features, EXID’s Hyelin looks like a real-life pixie when she has a pixie cut.
With long hair, she looks very feminine, but short hair gives her an endearing tomboy appeal.
10. Nicole (KARA)
Over the years promoting with Kara, Nicole split her time fairly evenly between long haircuts and shorter styles.
This haircut was the shortest fans ever saw her with.
