While just as time-conscious and foolproof as the top knot, this nonchalant low bun has plagued Pinterest boards within the beauty community and dominated beauty hack on Instagram.

A low-hanging bun that takes a solid 3 minutes to execute and 2 items you already have in a drawer under your bathroom sink: A hair-tie and bobby bins.

Whether you decide to use three-day-old hair or texturizing spray (let’s be honest now, everyone’s hair is better to work with when your natural oils are working their magic), the procedure of the ‘do remains the same. Once you have the banana bun you’re satisfied with, the rest of the styling is up to you.

This parisian ‘do is for those that favor the neat and chic and the lazy seeking 3 minute on-the-go hairstyles. We love the banana bun not only because we fangirl over the cute and easy, but because the banana bun can be altered and personalized to the bun to your unique liking.

This hairstyle is for the girls who have pinterest boards full of cute hairstyles and have failed the majority of them, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU!

Split, wrap, and pin!

If you’re feeling up to it, leave some bang hairs out to create that stylish bedhead look and frame your face.
