Take Your Bun To Infinity & Beyond

These days, it seems that the braid has been getting elaborate, Game Of Thrones-worthy makeovers around the clock. But, what about our old friend, the chignon? Sure, the top knot had a moment, but other than that, the simple bun doesn't seem to get much love anymore. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?
Well, the ladies over at The Beauty Department obviously were thinking that the bun deserved a bit of a transformation: They created an easy step-by-step tutorial that barely requires any extra work, but with a much more impressive result. To create it, you simply begin twisting your hair in a circle, but instead of finishing the knot, you bring the hair in the other direction, essentially creating a new bun that sits right next to your original bun. Tuck the ends under, and voilà: a cool, origami-esque look that barely takes any extra time at all.
So, are you up for a weekend project? Get your bobby pins ready and start twisting — you'll feel infinitely chic. (The Beauty Department)
