5 Simple Hairstyles Inspired from Crash Landing On You and Where You Can Get It in Singapore

Published on Feb 21, 2020

With every episode bringing us through a rollercoaster of emotions as we hang on to the edge of our seat, we can hardly believe that Crash Landing on You aka #CLOY has finally come to an end.

:(

While you're pining over the heartstoppingly handsome Captain Ri and elegant gorgeous Yoon Se Ri, why not recreate their looks you see in #CLOY?

Based on what Son Ye Jin's hairstylist share about her looks and hair in #CLOY, we reveal the 6 simple to achieve hairstyles for #CLOY fans looking for that dignified elegant hairstyles seen in the show!

1. Chaebol-Worthy Loose Waves


For those who have followed #CLOY closely, you'd realize that Son Ye Jin looks different when she's in Seoul and when she's in North Korea. In Seoul, Yoon Se Ri is a capable, charismatic CEO hailing from a third generation chaebol.

Hence you'll find that even her hair looks expensively done (like those hairstyles you can get from the expensive Cheongdam salons)

It looks really natural and classy but as Son Ye Jin's hairstylist reveals, she actually achieved that soft dignified look in THREE perms.

The key to this hairstyle is that the hair cannot be exceedingly voluminous at the ends. Although there are waves, the waves are loose and forms a H-shape (in the middle) rather than the A shape on the right.

The mostly straight with a little bit of S curls at the end give off a soft elegant look that elevates one's status immediately. 

The fact that it needn't be too voluminous make it very suitable for Singaporean ladies; your hair NEED NOT be that thick to pull off the hairstyle.

2. North Korean-Approved Natural Curls


Did you know that in North Korea, women can only choose from 15 government-approved hairstyles?

The above hairstyles don't exactly look instagrammable but Son Ye Jin being Son Ye Jin just manage to pull it off anyway. 

In the North, Son Ye Jin's hairstyle are intentionally made more curly, in line with North Korea's approved hairstyles.

Instead of making her look older, the curls somehow gave her a more youthful, romantic vibe as she falls in love with Captain Ri.

3. Seo Dan's Silky Straight Side-Part with Bling Bling Hair Clips


A symbol of youth and femininity, long silky straight hair has been Singaporean ladies' the most coveted hairstyle for the longest time. 

Well-groomed at all times, Seo Dan's hair makes her look superbly classy and luxurious. Seo Ji Hye brings it out perfectly with the long straight hair with a twist... or rather a clip.

Hair clips from the 90s have made a comeback not only on CLOY but also on international stars such as Ariana Grande and Kendall Jenner.

4. Ko Sang-A's Gradation Bob


Many fans were sad to see that Yoon Ji Min cut her hair for the role, but we think the layered bob suits the character in the drama perfectly.

There is just no hairstyle quite like the Graduated Bob Bob that gives its wearer the all-business assertiveness you'll need to get ahead at work.

With hair this short, there is nowhere to hide.

You have to bring out your inner bravado, lift up your head and walk with confidence.

Feel the air beneath you as the high gradation frees you from the weight of your hair.

5. Do Hye-Ji's Round Bob


In CLOY, Hwang Woo-seul-hye plays Do Hye-Ji, the cute bubbly wife of Yoon Se Jun who often makes the audience laugh with their usual antics. 

To bring out her youthful, playful vibe, Hwang sports a short round bob throughout the series with the casual see-through bangs!

On top of looking cute, we love the round bob because it is easy to maintain... just wash, blowdry and go!

Alternatively, you can lose the fringe and just go for the bob. This stylish and chic option makes you look refined, edgy and feminine at the same time. You'll also love the quick washing and drying process with short hair. Do note that bobs like these tend to outgrow their shape quickly so you might need to go in for regular trims.
