Hair maketh the man.

Highly popular in Korea, the two-block haircut is a recent KPOP trend that has caught our eye and made the hearts of many girls flutter. So guys, if you are looking for inspiration for your next look, stop right here!

Easy to maintain and easy on the eyes, the two-block haircut is worth a try.

Oh, and don't worry, you don't have to be a Korean heartthrob to pull this haircut off ...

What is it?


Think of the two-block haircut as the new and improved version of the undercut.

Hair at the sides and lower back are either shaved or trimmed short, while the hair on the crown is left long.

The short two-block haircut also exudes a gentleman look when slicked back, making it a more appropriate hairstyle for working environments that require you to look professional but are not too strict on the rules. You can wear it down for the effortlessly casual look or wear it up for that dash of suave. Not only does the hairstyle itself change your appearance, you can do many styles with it!

How to style


It may not look like it but the two-block haircut is a low maintenance hairstyle and that suits both young and old.

It is up to you how long you wish to keep the hair on the crown of your head, so you don't need to visit the salon often to maintain the look.

Keeping the sides short is achievable on your own with a trimmer.

The two-block haircut is also easy to style as all you need is quick blowdry and a bit of wax to mold your hair into your desired look.
