The Two Block Haircut and The Top 5 Styles
The Two Block haircut has grown in popularity since it made its first appearance in the Korean pop music scene. Essentially it is a style that features two distinct cuts with longer sides and top and shorter hair in the back. Styling longer hair on the top can be done in many ways giving you the chance to add your unique flare of style to the overall look. Anybody can rock this haircut because straight, wavy, and curly hair work just fine. Typically you see this hairstyle with some texture resulting in many men getting a perm to go along with the cut.

Here’s a list of the top 5 styles you can rock with the Two Block haircut!
Two Block Haircut + Taper Fade
Incorporating a taper fade into the two block cut is a perfection option for those with thicker hair. Utilizing a middle part will help add some dynamic texture creating a put-together and stylish look.
Medium Two Block Haircut + Cold Perm
A cold perm is a great solution to those who have straight hair but want some added texture and shape. The cold perm is executed by a leave-in solution worked through the hair that is then wrapped around rods until the waves are set. This method is typically cheaper and faster than your traditional perm. This look can be worn with any length hair but as an example a medium two block is shown below.
Square Neckline Two Block Haircut
Again, the amount of versatility is what makes this hairstyle so desirable. A fun way to add some uniqueness is to play around with the neckline. A square neckline allows you to keep as much hair as possible. Paired with a taper fade and this look is incredible.
Two Block Haircut + Straight Hair
If you have straight hair and don’t want to go with the perm option, not to worry as there is a place for pin-straight hair with this look. A lot of Asian hair is naturally straight so this look truly can be worn by anyone. Pair this look with some highlights and a defined curve for a 90s vibe that has come back into style.
Two Block Haircut + Curtain Bangs
Pairing the two block haircut with curtain bangs gives this look an added layer of depth and style especially when worn with a middle part and some highlights.
The two block haircut is incredibly easy to style depending on the shape and texture you’re going for. If you have natural waves or are trying to style your perm, a light pomade will help hold their shape. For curly hair, a non-crunchy hair spray will help keep your hair in place. And for those with straight hair, a blow dryer may be helpful with styling from damp hair.
Whether you are a Korean pop music lover or are just infatuated with this awesome new hair trend, this guide will help you decide how to style the two block haircut.
