Remember the middle-parted poker straight hairstyle, called curtain hair, sported by actors Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio in the ’90s? The year 2020 has seen its resurgence, with actors and
K-pop stars bringing it back in trend. However, this time, it is not just for those with straight hair but also being flaunted by celebs with wavy locks.
“Curtain hairstyle has caught everyone’s attention again because a lot of K-pop stars are rocking it, and they have huge popularity around the world. Also, a lot of campaign shoots done by international and Indian designers have models sporting this look, thereby making it hit,” says stylist Vikram Seth.
But does this hairstyle suit everyone? No, say experts. It looks more flattering on men with a diamond or square-shaped face.
A word of caution from celebrity hairstylist Rod Anker: “The problem with this type of haircuts is that whilst you think it covers the hairline, it actually draws attention to it.”
