Vocabulary: Hair Colors (Natural) in Korean

Hair color vocabulary in korean

Here are the natural hair colors in Korean. We may do another one on other colors, but it’s pretty simple. You just add whatever color the hair is and attach “머리” (usually). We have written the vocabulary below as well. Enjoy! If you want to study even more and improve your Korean, check out our ebooks over at the Dom & Hyo Store.

검은색 머리 (geom-eun-saek meo-ri) = Black hair

금발 (geum-bal) = Blonde hair

갈색 머리 (gal-saek meo-ri) = Brown hair

짙은갈색 머리 (jit-eun-gal-saek meo-ri) = Dark brown hair

빨간색 머리 (bbal-gan-saek meo-ri) = Red hair

흰 머리/백발 (hwin meo-ri/baek-bal) = Gray hair/White hair

 

Remember that romanization is only a tool! Try not to depend on it too much and try learning the Korean alphabet and how to pronounce the letters properly and you will have a much easier time learning.

Some great books to get your started are Korean Made Simple: A beginner's guide to learning the Korean language and Become a Hangeul Master: Learn to Read and Write Korean Characters

    In my experience living in Korea as a natural red head, Koreans don’t really distinguish between red hair and blonde. I’ve even been told I have brown hair. It’s not very surprising, because it’s not a shade Koreans encounter often. I’d imagine the shade they call red is actually dyed.
