The hairstylists at Park Jun Beauty Lab are experts at short hair cuts that perfectly frame the face. Besides the classic bob, their stylists can also style your hair into a wolf cut.

For those who don’t know what it is, it’s South Korea’s take on mullet hair, which is softer and frames the face with curtain bangs.

It’s not a problem if you’re not a fan of this layered hairstyle. You can also get a perm at the salon to achieve long, wavy hair a la a K-drama leading lady.

For men, the salon also does the parted curtain bangs that’re popular with South Korean men – whether they’re in the TV and music industry or not.
