This is a collage of Youngmin's pre-debut hairstyles, he's so cute, isn't he?
o As we can see in the first picture, Youngmin has a typical Korean male haircut (He looks beautiful while sleeping *-*). This hairstyle can be seen on schoolboys and teenagers.
o Youngmin has smooth and straight hair, with his fringe covering his forehead.
o The fringe undoubtedly plays the main role in this hairstyle which has always been very popular in Korea.
Boyfriend era: Here, we notice the great change that was between the pre-debut and the first debut - Youngmin dyed his hair to blond. He did this to differentiate himself from his twin brother Kwangmin.
Right here begin the transformations of Youngmin~ . ^-^ I'm really a big fan of his blond hair!
Don't Touch My Girl (Right): In this era, Youngmin’s blond hair is slightly darker than the one he had in Boyfriend. The length remains the same though!
I'll Be There (Left): This look isn't my favourite, but he really looks great with that hairstyle. Now notice that there's a change in his hair. Youngmin's hair colour has changed to dark brown and he has some wavy strains which looks cute (Editor’s notes: In the MV, you can see that he has mushroom-shaped hair, which is sort of a turn off for a lot of people; hence why I’ll Be There is a ‘meh’ concept for quite a lot of people).
Love Style: Oh gosh! There are no words to describe how wonderful he looks.
Youngmin's hair colour has now changed into light orange-y brown. Yes, although this hairstyle is simple and shows Youngmin’s maturity; the separation of the fringe is a terrible idea.
Yes, it allows us to see his forehead which is on display but does it compliment his looks? Maybe not, eh? We can see that his hair is given a bit of volume.
JANUS (Right): This style is one of my favourites, but I really miss the blond Youngmin… Anyway, he is still beautiful. Well, back to my point, we can see a lot of change between ''Love Style'' and ''JANUS''! In other words, it's a big change (Editor’s note: this is due to the immense jump from concepts – they had a casual, cutesy yet fashionable concept for Love Style but for JANUS, they had a dark, princely concept)! He looks more mature than his usual self.
Youngmin has achieved a bad boy/fierce look (Editor’s note: I would like to quote from Starship’s JANUS description box – Youngmin has finally transformed into a “fierce, masculine” man! Point no.1: Isn’t he a man already? Point no. 2: He needs to take some anger management classes if that’s the case)! He looks like a charisma prince (Well, HE IS the charisma Prince) (Editor’s note: I BEG TO DIFFER).
This time, Youngmin's hair is a bit darker and can be styled in several ways. he looks so sexyy!!!
I Yah (Left): This time we don't see much difference, since it was just a repackaged album, the stylist just dyed part of his hair purple just to jazz it up a little.
Last but not least!~
Seventh Mission: Personally I liked the new haircut of Youngmin, I think Youngmin looks more mature. I read that some Bestfriends think the same as me - his new haircut makes him look more mature (Editor’s note: He dyed his hair slightly darker; and it can be seen that Japanese stylists couldn’t be bothered to change his hairstyle…Well, then again, this hairstyle suits Youngmin pretty well!).
I also like the way that Youngmin parted his hair.
Some sources of information noted that his new haircut resembled Kwangmin’s during I'll Be There era, personally, I think they're right - what do you think?
I think YM looks great with all kind of hairstyles but one of my favourites is this:
I really miss his blonde hair.
Well, Youngmin always had lighter hair than Kwangmin, but this time we can see that it's the opposite!
What do you think of her new hairstyle? Did you like it? Which one is your favourite?!
