The '90s Hairstyle We Never Thought Would Return Is Back

Elinor Block

We've been documenting for some time now how old school hairstyles are making a return. Whether that's the classic '90s short fringe, currently sported by Michelle Williams and momentarily adopted by Emily Ratajkowski, or the '00s straight hair trend that Kim Kardashian and Jessica Alba seem to be bringing back, there's now a new style to add to that growing list—the double hair bun.

That's right, the style that consists of two buns shoved up high onto your head is making its (very welcome, we might add) return. And who has been wearing this trend? Well, you might say who hasn't been rocking this look. From Hailey Baldwin posing for one of her perfectly-shot Instagram pictures to Cara Delevingne for her Suicide Squad promotional tour, as well as Khloé Kardashian wearing it out and about in L.A., we can bank there'll be more to come. 

Keep scrolling for a look at how Cara, Hailey and Khloé have all been wearing it, how we wore it in the '90s, and how to do it at home.

Step-by-step guide:

We spoke to Hershesons stylist, Jordan Garrett on how to re-create this look:

1. First using a comb, begin a middle part starting from the front of the head and following all the way back to the crown and then down to the nape of the neck, leaving your hair in two sections.

2. Using your hands, take one of the sides of your hair and pull up towards the crown. Create a softness to the look by pulling out baby hairs or loose strands around the face to frame it—remember less is more.

3. Take a mixed bristle brush and glide it over the hair, smoothing it all the way towards the crown. It's really important to keep your chin and head up straight, as this ensures the style remains tight and close-fitted when it comes to tying it off.

4. Use a Hershesons Clear Snagless Hairband (£7) to tie the hair in place, keeping it close to your scalp.

5. Repeat steps 2–4 on the other side of your head, creating two ‘baby spice’ pigtails. Use some hair spray to smooth out any flyaway hairs

6. Using Hershesons Pin Me Down bobby pins (£6) and Hershesons 'Get A Grip' Black Grips (£6), wrap your hair into a bun on each side and secure. The buns need to have a good base structure to hold but keep the overall look loose by leaving some wisps of hair free from the bun.
