If You Ever Need Hair-Color Inspiration, Look No Further Than BTS
BTS are doing a lot of things right — the music, the dancing, the charm, and let's not forget about the hair. The powerhouse K-pop group — consisting of RM, Jin, Jimin, J-Hope, Suga, V, and Jungkook — are known for their various hair looks and love of rainbow colors. They aren't afraid to dabble in the brightest of brights or the palest of pastels. It seems like every time we turn around, they've got new hair colors to match their killer fashion sense, always keeping fans on their toes.
Still, while the band has a flair for hair, not everyone is rocking the bold colors on the regular. Worldwide Handsome, also known as Jin, probably changes up his hair the least, usually sticking with his natural dark shade or a natural-looking lighter color. On the opposite end of the spectrum are RM, Jimin, V, and Suga, who color their hair pretty much constantly. They all usually opt for a blond shade between colors to give their hair a rest and to get fans ready for what might be next. J-Hope also colors his hair pretty often, though perhaps not as much as the others. Jungkook falls somewhere in the middle — sometimes changing things up, but not usually as drastically as the bright yellows, pinks, and blues that the other guys are doing. Then again, he did recently go blond, and, well, it was a big deal.
Ahead, see some of our favorite BTS hair colors from the past few years, including the funky rainbow shades and sleek, in-between looks.
