More #normcore 90s hair!

Yesterday I shared a tutorial for the half up hair knot. My friend (and hair model) Rosalie messaged me to say she had been wearing that style non-stop on her European summer holiday.

I doubt she’ll say the same for this style…

I mean, Rosalie does makes these double buns look cool but it’s a style you don’t see that often. Does anyone else remember these double buns from the first time around?

You’ll need:

  • 2 hair elastics
  • Bobby pins


  1. Create a centre part. No need to be too neat, just separate your hair into two equal sections.
  2. Put your hair up into pigtails. Place them right at the back of your head.
  3. Twist your ponytail up and around. Pin your bun in place but leave the ends hanging down.
  4. Repeat on the other ponytail, leaving the ends hanging loose at the back. Pin in place with bobby pins.

Styling tips

  • Twist the buns down, around and to the centre, so that your end are hanging down in the middle.
  • Leave some hair loose at the front. Go super 90s with two tendrils of hair, or leave your fringe/bangs outs.

    I know this is a super old post but I love this and the other 90’s styles pictured on rosalie! (wore the double buns yesterday after seeing this on pinterest) Also, I love her hair color so much. Would love to find a salon who can do that or boxed dye that looks like that. :)
