Sandara Park Tops Survey for Idols that Suit the “All-Back Hairstyle” the Most

2014082601002423300134281

T/N: “올백 머리” literally means, “all-back hairstyle,” it means, all the hair is combed back to show the face entirely.

2NE1’s Sandara Park was chosen as the girl group idol that suits the “all-back” hairstyle the most.

Recently, on the Dream Cosmetic Surgery homepage, the website’s visitors were asked to join in on a survey titled, “Girl Idol That Suits The All-Back Hairstyle The Most,” and it was revealed that Sandara Park topped the survey results, garnering 31.7% of the votes.

Other idols on the survey were f(x)’s Sulli, who was at second place with 29.2% of the votes, and Wonder Girls’ Sohee and Kara’s Goo Hara, who got 26.7% and 12.4% of the votes respectively.

The all-back hairstyle really shows a woman’s “real beauty” for many years. The hairstyle reveals the whole face, and many hairstyles that allude to this style has been made for women as well.

Sandara Park, who topped the survey, has made this hairstyle as one of her trademarks, as she has been wearing her hair back most of the time, since her debut, showing her rounded head and pretty features. This hairstyle in particular is quite hard to pull off well since one needs an oval-shaped face and round head shape (LOLOLOL! Guess I don’t pull this off “well” then, but I do my hair this way anyway, teehee!) for it to be shown neatly.

(T/N: Ommitted the tedious technical description of “oval faces” and “round heads” ^_^)

5 KOREAN BEAUTY STORES AND THEIR AMAZING PRODUCTS

tumblr_inline_naf83c6mDL1qc7ff0

Koreans never tire in their pursuit for beauty, which is often either made possible by a strictly regimented and vast arsenal of beauty products or plastic surgery. While they’re most famous for the latter, there are quite a few less permanent ways to get glowy, K-pop-music-video-ready skin. With the help of a few Korean beauty imports, it’s never been easier to do so — especially since they’ve gone mainstream (there’s a Missha located at the mall close by me!). The following is a list of my five favorite Korean beauty stores (in no particular order), plus one product I absolutely can’t live without from each company. Get your beauty on!

1) Club Clio

This brand’s specialty is colorful, funky and youthful makeup in a myriad of colors. Think of Club Clio as the MAC of Korea — like MAC, they have their own celeb spokespeople. Clio’s current model and spokesperson is none other than Dara of 2NE1, who appears in all their current ad campaigns and commercials.

Gelpresso Waterproof Pastel Upper Liner -

Korean chicks love intensely lined eyes, so it’s no surprise that Club Clio’s bestselling item is their Gelpresso Waterproof Pastel Upper Liner. It is applied with a creamy twist-up soft plastic pencil and acts like regular pencil eyeliner. However, it’s different from regular pencil eyeliners due to being completely waterproof and therefore smudge proof, which comes in handy in the hot, humid summer heat.

2) Nature Republic

3) Missha

4) Skinfood

5) The Face Shop

All About 2NE1’s Hip-Hop Looks: Real Hip-Hop vs. Sexy Hip-Hop

ubynipdzp2gr2teytdyjkjbvyd2sfzkz

[by MinJin Park] 2NE1 is one of Korea’s famous Hip-hop girl groups. Many people love 2NE1 for not only their powerful rap and musicality, but also for their fashion style.

Their style seems to be motivated by hip-hop. Hip-hop look is an element of hip-hop culture. Good examples would be a snapback, beanie as well as over-sized t-shirt, pants and necklace. However, today’s hip-hop look is a little bit different from the past. It is mix-matched with other fashion style.

Not to mention, celebrities do affect a fashion trend and especially idols play a huge role in creating a trend. Without a doubt, 2NE1 is one of idols affecting trends dramatically.

The whirligig of trend often makes many people confused what to buy or wear. Let’s learn what is in trend today and predict upcoming trend by identifying 2NE1’s style.

◆ Real Hip-Hop Look Never Goes Wrong – Dara & Minzy

4uamhtlilcyybchmgpaxqh0xilosiuec

There was a big boom from 1990s to early in 2000: A Real Hip-hop Look

Korea’s hip-hop musicians such as DJ DOC, Drunken Tiger and Untitle brought typical hip-hop fashion from New York, a hometown of Hip-hop.

2NE1’s Dara matched a loose shirt with a beanie. Both items were often used during the beginning stage of hip-hop look. Especially a big shirt can be a cute item for a small-sized woman.

Minzy also made her real hip-hop look with a typical hip-hop item, snapback. The cropped sleeveless shirt, destroyed jean and chain also boosted her hip-hop styling.

◆ Hip-hop Can Be Sexy Too – CL & Bom

Every summer, woman wears shorter and less. Hip-hop look is not an exception. Sexy hip-hop look, led by Lee Hyori in the beginning of 2000 is returned again for 2014 summer.

CL often appears in a sexy look with a cropped shirt and mini flare skirt to highlight her hotness. However, she becomes even sexier with hip-hop look. For instance, she wore a bikini with a bucket hat and sunglasses.

Bom completed her sexy hip-hop look with a loose jacket with typography printed. A pair of red mesh stockings was more than enough to make her look sexy.

Sexy hip-hop look can make a person sexy without much exposure.

Fashion Feature: [STARCAST - What Should I Wear This Week?] An Early Summer Weather, Enjoy it Like the Stars

[STARCAST-What should I wear this week?] An early summer weather, enjoy it like stars

112638562_1

It is clearly spring and is a nice spring. It looks like the days in which it will be good to go outside are going to continue. The highest temperature is expected to be around 20 degrees Celsius. In one word, the spring that is like early summer is expected.

The second week of April that skipped spring, it will be ok to take out the see-through jacket and a half-sleeve shirt. It is not going to be awkward at all. The missing bottom look is okay also for sure. It is said that the days in which it is hot too wear hot pants is going to continue.

‘What should I wear this week’ that ‘STARCAST’ prepared. It is fashion for early summer that came all of a sudden.

112639835_11

▶ Thursday, April 17th | Lowest 9 degrees, Highest 20 degrees, Cloudy and then raining : There is not going to be that much change in temperature. It is expected that it will slightly get cloudy in the morning and rain in the afternoon. Taking the umbrella with you on the way to work is necessary.

112639964_12

Suggestion ① Mini look : On rainy days, we strongly recommend short clothes. It is easy to mess up the style due to the rain if you wear long pants. It can never happen with the shorts, just like Yoona. She went a step farther and wore a mini skirt made up of vinyl fabric.

The choice of shoes is also important. Since it is not going to rain in the morning, it is a little too much to wear the rain boots all day. In times like this, wear the boots with narrow ankles. It is good to wear a boxy t-shirt rather than a tight top. There is no need to worry about the body shape showing a little even when it gets slightly wet by the rain.

Suggestion ② Patch leggings & The baseball jacket: If concerned about the short clothes, there is a solution. Refer to ‘2NE1’ Bom. She wore leggings with a net patchwork to shorts. It can still look cool while decently covering the legs.

In the cloudy weather, give a point with vivid colors. It might look depressing if the prop is also dark. The colors such as neon orange high top shoes or pink mini bag are perfect. 

112640222_14

▶ Friday, April 18th | Lowest 10 degrees, Highest 16 degrees. Very cloudy : It is the day after spring rainfall. The temperature will go down a little. The rain stopped but the clouds will not go away so it is expected that the cloudy weather is going to continue.

112640337_15

Suggestion ① Rider jacket & camo pants: If the temperature drops a little, you have to especially pay attention to the outer clothes. It is easy to catch cold if you just wear light not thinking about the temperature. Try wearing a rider jacket. It is perfect for inconsistent spring weather.

What if you want to avoid the clothes that show the body shape? Wear a loose fit long shirt as an inner wear. It naturally covers the hemline. The vibe will get much more powerful if you match the military style skinny jeans. Unify the high top shoes with the color that is same as the jacket. It is for the style balance.

112640465_16

Suggestion ② Blouse & Cardigan: Do you want a simple style? Then we recommend blouse and cardigan, which are steady styles in between the seasons. Gu Ha Ra from ‘KARA’ wore a white blouse that match well with all cardigans. She looks neat and tidy but chic at the same time.

If the temperature rises a little, wear a cardigan. It will look cool in a chic way. If you are too lazy for that, tie it around the waist. It is European style. The skinny jeans that shows the body shape tightly matches the most to a blouse.
