The hair styles of Hello! Project

I’ve started noticing the hairstyle of Hello!Project shapes their appearance as well as their personality.
Most of the member of H!P have bad hair day. Their hair is always done perfectly.
It really makes me wonder how much time they have to sit infront of the mirror daily before their apperance to the public.
There’s different types of hairstyle that H!P wildly use, it’s starting to repeat itself a lot and I think it’s getting a bit of the dull side.
For instance, Sayu’s hair look extremely nice with a side fringe, but she always have straight fringe.
SOME ONE SAVE ME!!!

Anyway, this post will contain a lot of graphics, GOMEN if it’s killing your bandwidth a bit.
In the H!P world, hairstyles can be put into two main catergories, the Kawaii(cute) or the Kakkoi(cool and elegant):
First we have the Bun, although you can look very mature in this hairstyle, if they added a ribbon or clip, their image will totally change
Bun (without decoration)

Bun (with decorations)

Then we have the High Pony Tail, look very similar to the Bun
It is also commonly used in the street of Japan, because it make the face features smaller as the bun gets bigger. Widely recommend in a lot of Japan fashion magazines.

This following sub-catergory is perhaps the most widely used in H!P
It’s almost like the High Pony Tail, but this is Side Pony as their hair is obviously unbalanced to one side

Side High Pony (long):

Then much like the Side High Pony Tail, this hairstyle is usually worn by H!P girls that are more shy, and it creates a innocent image.
Side Low Pony Tail (straight)

Side Low Pony Tail (curly)

After the pony tails, we can look closely at the pig tails. If it’s worn as a high, this usually gives a very energetic feeling. But if it’s worn low, then it gives out more a reserve feeling.

Enough of the hairs that gets tied up, let’s look at hairstyles that they leave it out. I love the Long Straight Hair, they have the extra mature and shy feeling to it. Although I have to admit, this hairstyle didn’t suits Ai’s current image, it did match her energetic image that had when she first came out.
Long Straight Hair (with straight fringe)

Girl that own this hair style [Konno Asami]
Long Straight Hair (wwith straight parted fringe)

Girl that own this hair style [Niigaki Risa]

H!P stylist have a obsession of curling the girls’ hair. In a group, at least one girl’s hair is curled. This hairstyle gives a wild image yet in the same time natural. It is a sort of hair you’ll see everywhere in Japan. In fashion magazine, there are even different method/curl size etc..etc.. to achieve the perfect curl.
Long Curly Hair (side fringe)

Girl that own this hair style [Fujimoto Miki]
Long Curly Hair (straight parted fringe)

Girl that own this hair style [tie between Ayaka & Satoda Mai]
Long Curly Hair (with headband)

Girl that own this hair style [Niigaki Risa]
One group that consist all girls wearing curly hair -sweat-

Righty, enough of the long hair. The short hair is rather interesting. Although not many girls look nice with the short hair, it tends to gives a super hyer and also leadership feeling. Makes me woner how would Kusumi look like if she ever have short hair? Abe, Yossie, Ai, and Saki are the leader of their group(once), and they tend to have short hair when they’re becoming a leader to obtain a more mature, grow up refreashing image.
Straight Short Hair (flat)

Girl that own this hair style [Arihara Kanna]

Well, after a long post of H!P hairstyle. Hopefully H!P will have some new hairstyle that we fangirls/boys are gawk at.
Three of my favourite hairstyle in the entire H!P

Haha, i actually wear my hair like Mano Erina, except my hair is longer and have i a massive ribbon to clip at the back so it made me looks like Minnie-mouse according to my little sister

Well, hope you enjoy this post. Feel free to comment on it.
I suppose to be sleeping right now as I have to get up 7:45 in the morning.

  1. I don’t know who these people are but I never knew that there was that much to hairstyles. Good work!

  2. i like this article, you did a great job, H!P hair styles rock!

  3. This was a nice read, interesting to see all the hairstyles categorized like this. It’s amazing how many different hairstyles some girls have had over the years. Even Sayumi, who basically has had long, undyed hair since her beginning, has had quite a few hairstyles. Probably the girl with the most different hairstyles over the years has been Rika who has had everything from short to long, straight to curly, blond to natural.

  4. i REALLY want to know how to do the puffy high ponytail?? any tip?? ^o^
    thanks for posting ^^

    • high ponytail is easy.
      so you tie up your pony then you use a small teeth comb and comb your hair backwards from the tips [this step is call teasing]
      that would make your hair really puffy.
      then hair spray it so it will stay that way.
      and your done 🙂
      if your hair is really straight and smooth. you can try curling it before tieing it and teasing it

  5. Hey, great post, very well written. You should blog more about this. I’ll definitely be subscribing.

    Cheers,
