10 Most Flattering Hime Cut Hairstyles

‘Hime Cut’ or ‘Hime Katto’ is a well-known Japanese hairstyle. It is more commonly recognized as ‘princess cut’ throughout the country as well as rest of the world. Here, we have chosen 10 most flattering hime cut hairstyles for you:

1. Classic Hime Cut

A traditional hime hair cut consists of a long straight bunch of hair along with two sidelocks lying up to the jawline and a straight fringe set across the forehead. As you can see, the frontal fringe stops right above the eyebrows, while the long hair can go up to the waistline or even more.
