K-Pop idols not only need to perform well on stage, but they also need to look good while doing so. That’s where the stylists come in, dressing our favorite idol groups in trendy, trendy outfits to enhance their already breathtaking looks. And sometimes, they look so good in a certain outfit or hairstyle that they become absolutely iconic.
This is exactly what happened to some idols who wore the hime cut. The hime cut, also known as the princess cut, is a fashionable Japanese hairstyle defined by long, blunt hair in the back, usually cheek-length. This particular hairstyle has come and gone over the years, but wearers have always become a hot topic when they go public with their new haircut.
Now, let’s take a look at some female idols who look absolutely stunning in the hime cut!
When TWICE’s Momo first appeared with this hairstyle, fans everywhere went crazy with excitement. Many have praised on social media sites that she has pulled off this style flawlessly, as if she was destined to have it. We can’t even deny how amazing Momo looks in this iconic look.

Main vocalist, jaw-dropping visuals, and sometimes part-time comedian – MiYeon is a multi-talented queen. It seems fitting that she has tried the hime cut at least once in her career.

While many idols who wear the hime cut exude regal elegance, HaeRin’s cuteness is enhanced and overflows from head to toe. And using that innate cuteness isn’t a bad thing. She rocks the hairstyle in his own way, proving that the trend is timeless and can be worn at any age.
Rappers are known for being trendy and trendy, but the word ‘princess’ is not usually associated with them, even for female rappers! However, Mimi from OH MY GIRL says differently.
