With the ever-growing global popularity of the K-Pop scene, we are also seeing an increase in Korean hairstyle popularity, not just throughout Asia, but around the world. The K-Flat Crop is Korean styling mixed with a classic old school shape. Filled with texture and volume this style is short on the back and sides with length on top but shorter at the fringe so, the world is your oyster when it comes to styling! Part of the Wahl Global 2023 Collection, this session brings the key techniques of an enormously popular style throughout Asia direct to you. Creating a shape that has elements of a solid structure plus a soft texture is what makes this style unique. Based on popular hair styles in Asia, this Korean inspired cut combines both hard and soft elements that make it appealing to all types of customers.
