Punctuating the big-ticket trends every season are those micro movements that make mini, but still significant waves in the momentum and direction of new beauty. Think: glitter part lines, cobalt eyeliner, and faux freckles. Currently gathering traction in this category? Double buns.

What once was reserved for Kawaii-cute converts and Baby Spice impersonators, pairs of twists have made their way to the mainstream again and has been given both the fashion and IT-girl seal of approval.

Worn high on the head by model, Carlotta Kohl, Khloe Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, they have been given the high fashion treatment at Dior Fall/Winter 2016 when Guido Palau twisted the girl’s hair low, tight and tripled the shine. The trick to nailing this trend? Commit. Cara Delevinge embraced the 2000’s element of the look, teaming her twists with some face-framing tendrils.

Meanwhile Hailey Baldwin went the bigger-buns-is-better approach, accompanying hers with winged liner. And with Pretty Little Liars star, Ashley Benson posting pictures of Delevingne’s look to her Instagram alongside a triple-emoji love-fest caption, it’s only a matter of time before she opts for chignons too. The trend is catching, so it’s time to twist to it.
