When you’re all about hair trends, you’ve probably ticked off all the kinds of cool buns on the hair radar. There’s the banana bun, the sock bun, the donut bun, the braided bun and so much more. We don’t blame you, really. Buns are the best way to accentuate your features and keep the experimental side of you alive. So if you’re always ready to jump on to the bun bandwagon, a li’l birdie tells us there’s a new trend on the block—the macaron bun. Do you love macarons, do you love buns? If it’s a yes, this hairstyle ought to be your next big obsession.
Named after the popular French dessert, the macaron space buns look round—much like the shape of a macaron and no surprise then that they’ve become every French girl’s latest go-to look. These aren’t high space buns—they’re kept low neatly tied at the nape of the neck. You can either tie two braids and then opt for the macaron low space buns or just tie it like a normal bun.
How it’s done
Tie a ponytail on either side of your head but make sure you keep it low. Twist each side to create a bun. Secure with an elastic and bobby pins. If you want it another way, tie two neat braids on both sides and then turn to coiling them into a bun.
Spray it up
While your hairstyle is ready when you secure it with bobby pins, you need to ensure that there’s an extra hold by way of a spray that keeps your hairstyle in place. We suggest relying on the BedHead by TIGI Maxxed Out Hairspray (spray it from about 10 to 12 inches away). With its massive hold and super shine, the hairspray will keep your hairdo intact all through the day.
