Tired of the same old hairstyles? There are only so many times you can put your hair in a ponytail before it starts to feel stale, but most other styles take at least three times as long to do! That’s where the “banana bun” comes in. A variation of the braided bun, this style is perfect for people who don’t have the time or energy to waste on styling their hair! The best part? It starts with a ponytail!
A cross between a messy up-do and a messy bun, the banana bun looks like you’ve put at least a little effort into your look…when in reality, it took about 30 seconds and you might have actually done it while still half asleep! Genius.
The best part? If you decide to give up halfway through the process, it still doesn’t look bad:So, how does it work?
Start with a low, loose ponytail. (Or, if you are like me, just roll out of bed with the half-fallen ponytail from the day before!)
Flip the ponytail into itself, split it in half, flip the pieces inside again…and repeat until you have no more hair to flip. Or give up. Whichever comes first. If you want to secure it with a bobby pin, great. If you don’t, no one is judging. The end result is great either way!With a quick style like this, your morning routine is essentially cut in half. Feel free to press that ‘snooze’ button at least two more times!
