This study is an analysis of hair style preference of female college students. We hope that our research will provide the beauty industry with helpful and new information. In order to do the study, we interviewed and surveyed female college students in the
Chung cheong area.
The results of the study are the following.
In the analysis of hair style preference of female college students, straight hair was the most popular with 51.4% and most preferred straight or wavy hair. Most of the subjects styled their hair at home (61.2%) and most used the hair drier (43.0%) when styling their hair. Most of the subjects went to the salon for hair cuts (40.6%) and most preferred a feminine hair style (33.6%). 72.3% of the subjects replied that they changed their hair style in order to change their mood, 68.5% decided on their own hair style and 72.3% chose a hair style after debating whether it would suit them. The frequency of hair style change showed to be often with 63.8% and the number of style changes in one year was low with 1-2 times.
Most (83.7%) of the surveyed had experience with dyeing their hair, and 65.9% of them dyed their hair to change their image. Of the subjects that have never dyed their hair, 29.4% did not do so because they were satisfied with their natural hair color.
Most of the subjects preferred long hair(69.8%) and layered style(50.0%), and they preferred those styles because their felt the style either suited them best or because it was the style they liked.

The purpose of this study is to discuss hair styles that were in fashion in different periods and hair leaders who represented such styles. Findings of the study can be summarized as follows.
First, hair trends over different periods are briefed here. Strong wave and heavy texture were most representative hair trends in the 1980s. In the early 1990s, hair trends of the 1960s and 70s were reemerged and at the same time so-called 'the cyber hair style' was created. In the mid 1990s, long hairs were in fashion. Blunt cut hairs were avoided. Instead, hairs that were cut with scissors and then disheveled with laser became popular. At that time, it was preferred to make hairs overall bright-colored. As the 2000s, high bleach(discolored hairs) and pastel shades were in fashion. In the late 2000s, the development of magic straight brought the high popularity of straight perm. In the meantime, fewer women had their hair light-colored. Instead, more and more women tried to keep their hair color natural, or black. This brought increase in hair clinics where people had their damaged hairs cared.
Second, the characteristics of hair styles that were in fashion in different periods are summarized here. Women usually had medium hairs in the 1980s and 80s and long hairs around the 2000s. Women who had short hairs became more found in the late 2000s. In the 1980s and 90s, pony tale was even more popular than any other hair styles. But in the 2000s, naturalness and so-called the up style were dominant elements of hair styles. Women of the 1980s and 90s often had their hair light-colored and bleached. But those of the 2000s usually had their hair all black-colored. The texture of women's hairs appeared to be heavy in the 1980s and 90s, but smooth and shaggy in the 2000s. Fringe of the up style in the former two periods gave its way to that of the bang style by the 2000s.
Third, hair leaders and their hair styles between the 1980s and the 2000s were Oh Hyeon Gyeong with charming style, Yu Ji In with dark-colored straight medium hairs, Lee Na Young with light brown-colored bleached hairs, Jeon Ji Hyeon with long, natural hairs, Kim Tae Hee with black-colored intelligent, feminine hairs and Song Hye Gyo and Ku Hye Seon with black-colored short hairs.
