An edgy trim for the bold, this hairstyle is named after jellyfish as it mimics the shape of the sea creature. There are two main layers in this cut: The outer layer of your hair, which will be cut into a bob, and the inner layer which is kept long to emulate the tentacles of the jellyfish. TIP: Those with rounder face shapes should get longer layers, while those with defined jawlines can try cutting the first layer right below the jaw.

A slightly toned-down version of jellyfish cut, this cut was said to be a popular style among noblewomen during the Heian period, hence the name “Hime” which translates to ‘princess’. If you want a unique hairstyle that gives off the ‘Japanese soft girl’ vibe, try getting this. It’s also highly recommended for girls with rounder or egg-shaped faces.

This is the exact cut that the stylish Seo A-Ri wore in the K-drama Celebrity. This style is never easy to pull off but definitely deserves a spot in the trending hairstyles list in 2023. Be sure to proceed with caution, as the line between stunning K-drama star and Chinese primary school girl is very thin, especially if you don’t have the right face shape for it. Oval-shaped faces look the best in this classic short bob.
