#2 is flattering on everyone.

These do’s worn by your favorite K-Pop stars are modern, versatile, and definitely do the job of beating the heat. Check out these looks that are super easy to recreate when you just don’t feel like putting in the effort.

1. TWICE Chaeyoung’s “MORE & MORE” Space Buns

Chaeyoung sported the look in TWICE‘s latest music video, but they’re not your typical space buns — They have a carefree and messy vibe to match the free-spirited concept. She also placed a beaded headband across her forehead, turning it into the perfect summer look.

An alternative way to rock the style is by going for an asymmetrical take. Try playing around with bun placement, different sizes, and more to make the style unique to your taste.

She proves it can also look polished when paired with some chic clothes and dangling earrings.

2. (G)I-DLE Soojin’s “DUMDI DUMDI” Half Updo

If your hair is currently short like Soojin‘s, it may be hard to put all of into an updo. To get some relief from the summer heat, part your hair from above your ears to the crown of your head.

You can put this top section in one (or two!) messy buns. Optionally, leave down your bangs like Soojin or any stray pieces to frame your face.

3. BLACKPINK Jennie’s Pigtails

Pigtails may seem juvenile, but when pulled to the nape of your head like Jennie, they’re seriously adorable — and suitable for all ages!

The sky is the limit when it comes to customizing this hairstyle and making it your own. You can braid the pigtails, tie ribbons at the end, or add a headband.

Gather all hair at the crown of the head and wrap in a circle. Secure with an elastic and use bobby pins to secure any loose pieces. The messier this look turns out, the better!
