Banana buns are the latest hairstyle, hailing straight from France. Relax, topknots aren’t going anywhere, but if you’re looking for an update, the banana buns will definitely make the cut! It has that whole effortlessly messy-elegant look to it that so many of us are constantly striving for and it works best on second or third day hair because of the natural hold of your texture. In fact, this hairstyle can be attained on lazy mornings when you don’t want to do time-consuming hairstyles. Named for its slightly oblong shape, this French trend has been popping up on our Instagram feeds for several months now and we have decided to help you out if you don’t know how to recreate this fashion trend. Are you ready? Now let’s get started!
Step 1: Divide your hair into three equal-sized sections, like starting a braid. Make a low ponytail using the middle section and leave the side ones loose as they will be helpful later in making the bun.
Step 2: Twist the right strand across the middle strand, like starting a braid.
Step 3: Now take the wrapped portion of the ponytail and continue it towards the other section of your hair. Keep going with turning your hair and start pinning them up. Gently loosen a few strands of hair from around you hair line. This will help give your bun a more relaxed and natural look
Depending on the length of your hair and the look you’re going for, you can leave the pony as is or pin it up. You can also make it your own, choosing to only pin up some pieces or all of them, and creating whatever shape you like. You can help the style last longer by lightly misting it with some hairspray.
