Traditional Korean Wedding Clothing 

A traditional Korean wedding dress is bright and colorful.Although many cultures rely on the purity of white to carry brides throughout their wedding day, the Korean culture instead opts for color. During a traditional Korean wedding, both the bride and the groom wear elaborate costumes in bold, bright colors. Traditional Korean wedding dress is intricate, colorful and vibrant.



Bride’s Wonsam

  • Traditionally, a Korean bride wears a Wonsam and a Hanbok on her wedding day. As explained by, the Wonsam is “an elaborate topcoat with flowing sleeves.” The outside of the garment is made with red silk, while the inside is made with blue silk. The sleeves are often striped with vibrant colors. Beautiful embroidered flowers embellish the front and back of the Wonsam, symbolizing nobleness, wealth and longevity.

Bride’s Hanbok

    • This overcoat is worn over the hanbok, which consists of a skirt and a shirt. The shirt typically features a short length and long sleeves, while the skirt features a high waist and a hem that falls to the floor. The Korean bride might also tie a silk belt, the daedae, around her overcoat. This belt is traditionally made of red silk with gold embroidery.


  • For a traditional Korean wedding hairstyle, the bride’s hair is tightly pulled back and away from the face. The entire length of hair is gathered and tied at the nape of the neck. Other Korean wedding hairstyles involve more elaborate tiered styles, which involve gathering the hair into a large bun. A long hair pin featuring a dragon’s head decorated the hairstyle. Some Korean brides also choose to wear a crown or black cap embellished with jewels.


  • On her wedding day, the Korean bride wears minimal makeup. However, she will have three red circles painted on her face, one on each cheek and one on her forehead. According to, these small red circles are meant to “ward off evil spirits.” Korean brides wear white socks and silk shoes. These shoes, which resemble the shape of a boat, feature elaborately embroidered designs in rich colors.

Groom’s Dress

  • The Korean groom wears three main articles of clothing: the paji, cheogori and dalryeongp’o. His pants, the paji, feature wide, baggy legs. Two strips of cloth tie the pant legs around the ankles, ensuring the pants remain inside the boots. The groom’s shirt, the cheogori, has loose sleeves and typically falls to the waist or slightly below. The dalryeongp’o is the groom’s jacket, which he wears over the shirt and pants. The jacket is traditionally colored blue or maroon with an intricate embroidery of two cranes near the middle of the chest. A belt is worn over the jacket to keep it in place. The groom wears a simple pair of black cloth boots, known as Mokwha.

Beauty in Asian Culture

Asian beauty differs depending on the region.Asian beauty varies according to the region, but two things are constant: Asian women share a love of beauty and take pride in their looks. And just as the Western world has adapted to all types of looks and features, so has Asia.





  • As far south as India and as far north as China, the focus of beauty is surrounding the eyes. There are different eye shapes on the Asian subcontinent, ranging from slanted to almond-shaped, and they are typically accentuated by eyeliners and mascara. Eyebrows are often shaped naturally using a method called threading, which is popular in south Asia.


    • In Asian culture, the lighter your skin is the more beautiful you are considered. Consequently, many Asian women bleach their skin or use face cream to lighten and even out skin tone. In addition, there are many spa treatments used to give skin an even glow, including green tea steam facials, turmeric paste masks, mud masks and skin cleansers, and soaps that contain milk.


  • North Asian makeup is natural, with the only real color used being blush and lipstick. It is also usually dramatic around the eyes, where eyeliner and mascara, as well as a touch of natural shaded eye shadow, is used. In South Asia, makeup is normally dark colored, as the skin tones of natives there tend to be tan or dark. Lip color is normally nude, brown, burgundy or red, and eye shadow can be any color the woman is wearing that day. South Asians typically use more makeup than their northern counterparts, and they tend to use a mixture of traditional and modern Western styles.Hairstyle

    • Asians are trendy and tend to wear modern hairstyles. Women from the north may wear a bun, ponytail, long flowing locks, bob, messy curls, bed head style, mohawk, pixie cut and braids. South Asians prefer to keep their hair long and flowing, so it is normally layered long and kept neat and straight or wavy. Asians have very dark hair, but North Asians have straight hair, and many of the styles reflect this feature. South Asians have wavy or curly, coarse hair, and they often opt to straighten it. Many Asians also color their hair in hues ranging from black to platinum blonde.


    • North Asians tend to favor the latest fashion trends while reserving traditional dress for specific occasions, such as ceremonies or parties. South Asians usually wear salwar kumeez (long blouses and pants) with a matching scarf (dupatta), lengha (long skirt with a short blouse) or a sari (material wrapped around the body to resemble a dress). Although some women in South Asia wear fashions as well, it is frowned upon. Traditional South Asian wear has also become modernized, although the modern versions keep very close to traditional roots.

     Korean Dating Culture

    Korean man giving a flower to his date.Traditional dating culture in Korea usually left parents responsible for finding the best mate for their child. Arranged marriages were settled years, and sometimes even decades, before a child reached marriage age. Today, matchmaking trends are much different — placing the responsibility of finding a match with young singles.



    Parent Involvement

    • Traditional rules of Korean courtship left the parents responsible for matchmaking. Parents considered astrological signs, lineage, alliances between families and financial benefits when they paired their children with others. Though contemporary Korean dating norms have shifted away from parental matchmaking, parents still play a vital role at the end stages of courtship. In the Korean culture, young people are taught early to recognize their accountability to their parents — and the need for parent advice and guidance in important life decisions, including courtship and marriage.

    Mingling of the Sexes

      • In old Korea, the mingling with the opposite sex was frowned upon. As a result, many couples met for the very first time on their wedding day — sometimes at the marriage altar. Contemporary customs don’t frown upon relationships with the opposite sex, which allows couples to form more organically. For young Koreans, college often offers the first chance to date without parental interference or oversight. Because of this, university districts are common places to look for young singles.

    Marriage as an Option

    • In traditional Korean culture, women held one lifetime goal: to get married and have children. Contemporary Korean women have different options, and that is changing the way many look at marriage. As women began to fill middle management positions in the public and private sector, many more women choose careers over families. By 2005, 51 percent of South Koreans in their 20s and 30s were unmarried, which is 5 percentage points higher than just five years earlier.

    Contemporary Matchmaking

    • Though arranged marriages are largely a thing of the past, creative matchmaking attempts are not. Blind dates arranged by friends or relatives are a common part of contemporary Korean dating culture. Dating services are also very common, with 1,000 dating agencies open in South Korea alone. For young Koreans, it is common to partner with matchmaking sites and dating services in the quest to find true love — and equally as common for parents to be the ones signing them up for such services.

    Natural and Yaki Hair Types for Wig Making

    I like natural wigs. I do not mind yaki hair for some occasions. Synthetic strands of hair can look really good. Some blends are suitable for different occasions too. However, kinky curly hair pieces are really good looking. Since I am going through all of the trouble to make my hair look really good, I do want to use natural hair as much as possible. All of the hair types, whether natural or synthetic, can be highly processed and heavily treated before they are made into full or half wigs or any of the different hair extension types.

    I think they treat some natural hair that will be made into wigs with some pretty harsh chemicals. If you think about it, you won’t mind. Some of the best hair comes from foreign countries.

        How to Apply False Eyelashes to Asian Eyes

        While many people find Asian monolid eyes to be quite beautiful, some women complain that they want fuller eyelashes to help their eyes look bigger. Unfortunately, false eyelashes are created for Western eyes, with a strong curve. Never fear, a few tips can help you apply false eyelashes to Asian eyes in no time.



        Do your makeup as you normally do before you prepare to put on your lashes; however, do not apply mascara.


        Choose a pair of false lashes which are a medium length and invest in a lash clip which is specially designed to hold your false eyelashes as you trim excess, apply glue and set them on your eye lids. The clip to prevent getting glue all over the place and will also help you to line the lashes up perfectly on your Asian eyes.


        Place one of your false lashes in the clip and hold it up to your eye, making sure that it will fit properly. If it is too long, trim a small bit at a time until it fits perfectly.


        Apply a thin layer of eyelash glue to the strip on your false lashes and wait for a few seconds until the glue becomes tacky. While looking in a mirror, hold the eyelashes with the clip and press gently into the very center of your eyelid as near to the lash line as possible and then release the clip.


        Pinch the center of the eyelashes to hold then in place and then use your other hand to guide and secure the edges of the lashes near the lash line. Wait a few seconds for the glue to dry and then use black eyeliner to fill in any gaps between the false lash strip and your natural lashes.


        Put a very small amount of mascara on your natural lashes and then use an eyelash curler to help blend your natural and false eyelashes together. Repeat on the other eye and enjoy your large Asian eyes.

        How to Cut Asian Hair

        Cutting Asian hair is a challenge as compared with Caucasian hair because it’s especially straight and thick. Because of this, it usually won’t lay flat against the head. A normal cut with scissors doesn’t always work on Asians for this reason. It’s a good idea to get proper training in this specialty, but here are a few tricks to get you started.



        Razor cut some layers into the hair. This gives a softer look while adding body and texture. You can add chunky layers for a more dramatic style.


        Add subtle layers using thinning scissors to help it lay flatter and thin out the volume Asian hair naturally has. Use the scissors to cut layers into the hair and it will give it a less drastic layered look. You can also use the thinning scissors to make the hair look as if it’s not even layered: just do this on the underside of the hair, then use straight scissors on the top visible layer.


        Employ a point cut technique. Since Asian hair is so straight, it can look uneven easily, which point cutting can eliminate. It can also get rid of the “bowl cut” look when you cut their bangs.


        Do a side-swept bang. This may take awhile for the client to get used to styling, but cutting a long side-swept bang will create some versatility. You can point cut this as well.


        Taper the hair to frame the face. This also helps reduce the volume and make the hair more manageable for the client.

        Clothes of Asian Countries

        The kimono was the fundamental garment of Japan.Nowadays, most people in Asia wear what is recognized as Western clothes, but traditional Asian costumes are worn for festivals, weddings, and religious rites. In some countries, similar costumes are worn by both sexes, and those costumes haven’t changed very much in centuries.





        • The kimono is based on a Chinese prototype that had been worn since the 3rd century BC. The garment was square-cut and so were the wide sleeves. By the 8th century, the formal court costume was established based on the costume of the Chinese T’ang Dynasty, but the Japanese adapted the garment to their own purposes. The kimono can be extremely elaborate and expensive, with many layers. It’s worn mostly for ceremonial events like coronations or weddings.


        • China is a huge and very old country, but its basic garment hasn’t changed dramatically over the centuries. Clothing is fairly similar for both sexes and all classes. An emperor’s costume might differ from a peasant’s costume only in its embellishment and the quality of the fabric and the cut. Most Chinese garments are closed because of the sometimes harsh climate and in the winter the clothes can be padded. The chief garment is the tunic, or san, worn over trousers, or koo. This didn’t change much even in the modern era.

          India’s modern sari is a piece of material 6 yards long and 45 inches wide, placed over an ankle-length petticoat and draped. It can be patterned or plain and, for more formal occasions, gorgeously embroidered with gold and silver thread. It’s worn with a fitted bodice called a choli, which can also be very elaborately embroidered. Vietnamese traditionally wear the Ao ba ba, or silk pajamas. The women’s ao dai is a long slender dress with long sleeves and a standup collar. It is so popular that it’s worn as a uniform by school girls, flight attendants, hotel staff and the like.


        • The sampot, also known as the sarong, is the national dress of Cambodia and is similar to dresses worn in Laos and Thailand. The krama, a checkered scarf, has been worn since the first century. It’s a specifically Cambodian garment and isn’t worn by their Vietnamese, Laotian or Thai neighbors. During the reign of the Khmer Rouge, Cambodians were forbidden to wear bright colors, and the “black pajama” was worn.

        • The Shalwar kameeze is worn by both men and women in South and Central Asia. It’s very much associated with Pakistan, where it’s the national dress. The Shalwar is a pajama-like pant, and the kameez is a long shirt that falls to the middle of the thigh, and slit below the waist line. Women also wear the shalwar kameez with a dupatta, or scarf, which is wrapped around the shoulders and draped over the chest.

        How to Convert Asian Sizes on Dresses to American Sizes

        How to Convert Asian Sizes on Dresses to American SizesThere’s no international standard for clothing sizes. The system of dress sizing used in the United States of even numbers or of XS-XL is completely different from the Asian systems of sizing. If you go shopping in Tokyo or buy clothing online from an Asian source, this can lead to a huge headache or leave you stuck with a dress far too big or small. It’s important to know the size conversions so you find a perfect fit.




        In Japan, watch out for lettered sizes (XS-XL), as these tend to run small. If a dress made in Japan is labeled as a medium, for example, it’s probably a small in the United States. Japanese manufacturers also use two separate numbered systems. The first is an arbitrary number system like our 2-4-6-8 system in the United States, and the second relies on the actual measurements of those sizes. 5-7-9-11-13-15 correspond to an American XXS-XS-S-M-L-XL, respectively. 36-38-40-42 correspond to an American XS-S-M-L, respectively.


        In Korea, you’ll find a simple numbered system. 44-55-66-77-88 correspond to an American XS-S-M-L-XL, respectively.


        In China, watch out for two separate and more tricky systems. These two systems differ because they rely on the measurements of different parts of the clothing. An American small is 160-165 or 84-86. A medium is 165-170 or 88-90. A large is 167-172 or 92-96. Extra large is uncommon and therefore lacking in real standard measurements, but is generally 168-173 or 98-102, depending on the manufacturer.
