While french twists have been around for as long as we can remember, that doesn't mean they're old-fashioned. There's something about them that's always seemed so elegant. The look is perfect for weddings and formal events, but now, we've found a way to relax the traditional style and incorporate it into our everyday routine. Meet the banana bun: the loose, low hairstyle that takes your typical messy chignon a whole new level of chicness.
When it comes to this look, the messier it is, the better. The banana bun embraces flyaways and uncooperative strands (making it fabulous for humid days when your hair just won't cooperate). The styling possibilities are endless, too: you can wear it in the middle of your head, lower down by your neck, or even to the side. After initially spotting the trend on Byrdie, we knew we had to try this for ourselves.
