Say bonjour to macaron buns, the latest low-key French girl hair trend, and newest iteration of summer’s ever popular space buns. Characterised by their laid back low slung style, instead of being placed high on top of the head like their space bun counterpart, macaron buns are tied loosely and low at the nape of the neck.
Getting their name from the similarly shaped French sweet treat, Parisian girls can’t get enough of this super cool style. Right now they’re taking the internet by storm and already trending on Pinterest big time – their analytics team recently reported a 170% spike in search volumes in recent months, so the time to jump on the macaron bandwagon is now.
And the best part? They’re surprisingly versatile. Ideal for summer/festivals/lazy brunches galore, wear them twisted, messy or plaited, just be sure keep the style loose and low – the key to achieving this effortless French girl look is to not secure anything too tightly. Rough it up a little with some salt spray and leave out some fly aways for the perfect finishing touch. The more tendril-y the better!
