Have you noticed all the colourful hair in the K-Pop world? Hair colour is a crucial aspect of an idol's image, and in 2023, some of the trendiest hair hues among K-Pop idols are purple, blue, orange, red, and pink.


1. Purple hair is giving blonde a run for its money, it's edgy and unique. BLACKPINK's Ji-Soo rocks a bold and beautiful shade of purple back in 2017 during her As If It's Your Last era. 

IVE’s Won-young also did a show stopping purple look during IZ*ONE‘s “Violetta” era.

Of course, every ARMY knows who the blue prince charming is– BTS’s V with his iconic blue hair look that compliments his charismatic personality.

Do-yeon is known for her energetic and upbeat personality, which shines through her bright orange hair.
