If we’re honest with ourselves many of us sport a quick gym bun, top knot or ponytail at least 2-3 times a week, even if we aren’t actually keeping our dates with the treadmill. It’s functional, albeit a bit boring.
Enter the banana bun–the French girl’s answer to the updo that takes just a bit more time, but looks way better than your run-of-the-mill upswept style. Says Sarah Naslund from Escape Salon in Boston, the Aveda Artist responsible for the version featured here, “It’s special like a French twist, but the undone feel makes it modern and fresh. This has a glammy daytime vibe -- you’ve tried, but you haven’t tried too hard.”
The look takes only a few minutes to whip up and works great on second-day hair and all textures.
