The hime cut has become a popular trend among female celebrities in South Korea as Y2K fashion came back in fashion.

This early 2000s style features straight sidelocks that are typically cut to cheek length, accompanied by a frontal fringe, while the rest of the hair is left long and straightened. Often referred to as the “Princess’s hair,” this hairstyle is believed to have originated from characters in Japanese animation and Japanese royal women commonly known as “hime” in Japanese.

One notable celebrity who embraced the hime cut was Song Hye Kyo, who turned heads with her stunning style at the Met Gala on April 1st.

The hime cut has not only gained popularity among famous actresses but has also made its way into the world of K-pop girl groups. Rei from IVE proudly showcased her hime hairstyle during the promotion of the group’s second single album, LOVE DIVE, which was released in April. Additionally, members of NewJeans, including Hanni, Haerin, Minji, and Danieelle, have embraced various styles of the haircut, further contributing to its trendiness.

In an intriguing move, Yoon Eun Hye shared a video on her YouTube channel last month, providing a glimpse into the process of cutting her hair into the hime style.
