I’ve always wondered how Korean girls styled their bangs/fringe because most girls have bangs that fall naturally and perfectly in front of their foreheads. After observing a friend work on her fringe (even on a backpacking trip) and several Youtube videos, I realised this beautiful “natural” style comes from time and effort every day.

Of course most of the time for convenience, girls will use mini curlers or straighteners (unless you are into hair roller fashion like Hani from EXID).

We are not sure when stores have started the sale of these super cute mini hair tools but these tools can be mostly found in stores like Olive Young or Art Box in Korea with prices ranging from 12,000 to 30,000 won.
