The infamous bowl cut — adored by some, hated by others. The haircut adopted its name from the technique used to achieve the cut, which simply requires you to cut around the rim of a bowl that is placed directly on top of your head. In Korea, it was known as the poor man's haircut.
However, even with all the bad reputation that the bowl cut has, its popularity seems to contradict itself. Throughout the years of K-Pop, the bowl cut was seen over and over again, numerous times by well known idols and celebrities.
Even newer artists have been recently seen rocking this hairstyle. While unsavory at first glance, you can't help but adore some of these idols rocking the look. In fact, it would be hard to imagine some of these idols without their signature bowl cut. It seems the dreaded haircut may be more than meets the eye.
The haircut has come a long way since its origins, and has evolved to adapt to the current fashion trends. The rise of the bowl cut has also raised different opinions — some see it as charming and likable, while others see it as distasteful and unsightly. Where do you stand?
