We'll be honest. We started watching Itaewon Class because of Park Seo Joon. That said, what kept us watching wasn't just his stellar performance and adorable haircut. It was his talented co-stars who gave the K-drama as much spice and thrill as he did, and their record-breaking ratings episode after episode are proof. But don't worry, we're not about to spoil the plot for you. Instead, let us take you through a spoiler-free journey through all the cop-worthy hairstyles from the show's lead actresses:
Oh Soo-Ah (Kwon Nara)
1. Layered Bob Cut
Embarrassing childhood haircuts weren't a thing for Oh Soo-Ah, who already sported the chicest layered bob cut in high school.
2. Glitter-Streaked Lob
Soo-Ah's unexpected reunion with Saeroyi gave us probably our favorite look from her so far—dark hair in a mid-length chop with curtain bangs and multi-colored clip-ons.
3. Long hair with S waves and bangs
The fact that long hair in soft S-waves plus a fringe is Soo-Ah's business look is such a power move.
Jo Yi-Seo (Kim Da Mi)
1. Blonde Dip Dye
Jo Yi-Seo singlehandedly revived the dip-dye trend for us in this show. It matches her headstrong personality and trendsetter status perfectly.
2. Soft Curls
Don't let her devil-may-care attitude fool you. Yi-Seo never has a strand of hair out of place. In fact, she usually sports her bob in soft curls for nights out.
During a rollercoaster of a night in one episode, Yi-Seo came prepared with a relaxed half-ponytail that didn't budge after a chase and a face-off with another major character.
Ma Hyun-Yi (Lee Joo Young)
1. Wavy Pixie Cut
She might not have as much screen time as the others, but Ma Hyun-Yi is the unsung hair hero of this K-drama. Her vibrant blue locks stood out against the casual fits she wore to work, signalling from the beginning that there's more to her character than we think.
2. All her hair accessories
Hyun-Yi seems to have a huge hair accessory collection, too. Throughout the drama, she dons different hats and bandanas to keep her hair up while working in the kitchen.
3. Dark Brown Wig
This hairstyle is a mild spoiler, but we think this list won't be complete without it. Presenting the tomboyish Hyun-Yi in dark, wavy, long locks we'd only seen on a character like Oh Soo-Ah was the best instrument to tell perhaps one of the most important subplots in the show yet. And she looks absolutely stunning in it, by the way.
Kang Min-Jeong (Kim Hye Eun)
Everything about Kang Min-Jeong's look is a not-so-subtle message that she is, indeed, a boss. Her textured short hair is just the icing on the cake.
