As demonstrated in this post, I love a good throwback. My latest obsession is the resurgence of double buns—a statement hairstyle championed by edgy fashion forces like Gwen Stefani (above) and Bjork in the ’90s. I’m glad to see that the look has parlayed it’s way back onto the scene, thanks to gals like Vanessa Hudgens and Rita Ora—two girls who know a thing or two about having fun with fashion.
I’m thinking of giving double buns a test run for the holiday weekend. Care to join?
After parting hair down the middle, I suggest using TIGI’s Catwalk Sessions Series Styling Cream or Shu Uemura’s Shape Paste to smooth hair while you twist into buns on each side. (The messier, the better if you’re going for a cool, grunge-y look) Secure with safety pins and Twistband’s Birchbox Glitterati hair ties to add a fun pop of color.
Would you be up to give this look a try?
