Youtuber Safiya Nygaard gets a K-Pop Makeover



So we traveled to East Asia to film a six-part series about beauty, style, and shopping and here, finally, is part 4 - we went to Seoul, South Korea and got a K-Pop style makeover! We visited a stylist (@5:30), makeup artist, and hair dresser (@16:10) who all have worked with real-life K-Pop stars before and got a head-to-toe look inspired by today's most popular K-Pop stars - like Blackpink, Twice, Red Velvet, and BTS, amongst others. And, I became a K-Pop stan along the way. Yes, it happened. What do you guys think of my K-Pop makeover look?

I wonder what that stylist would do if I showed my black ass up and asked for a kpop makeover

sometimes i think about these kinds of things when a friend comes back from japan or korea and wants to show me their new haircut. tbh you'd have either no hair or dry/matted hair. either way there'd be anger and tears lol. though their Are some places that can do black hair just fine i've heard (even when my ma was there over two decades ago there were 1 or 2)

Yeah I always think this. Even when KennieJD who is black but lighter skinned shows their "dark" Korean makeup I'm like...my dark skinned self can't even use that as a highlighter lmao. With hair I think the fact that black people rarely trust anyone to even touch it right (even other black stylists) I would make sure my hair was either blown out or braided before I travel to an Asian country.

I have 3A curls and I never found a hairstylist who was able to do anything other than straighten them and give me a hairstyle for straight hair. I can't imagine they'd be able to fathom anything curlier or more coarse
