How To Get Khloe Kardashian’s Hair Buns That Were Inspired By Another It Girl
There's no denying that '90s fashion trends are back in full force. From overalls, chokers, Birkenstocks, and crop tops, we've seen everyone (even celebrities) embrace the past. If you're looking to accessorize your '90s vibes with nothing other than a '90s hairstyle look no further than Khloe Kardashian's hair buns that were inspired by Hailey Baldwin.
Kardashian said herself in a recent Instagram post that Baldwin inspired her two top buns, (which are sometimes called Hello Kitty buns) and have been trending recently from celebrities bringing back Japanese Harajuku girl style. Who wouldn't want to copy It girl Baldwin's style?
Luckily for fans who are wanting to try out the same hairstyle that works great for summer, Kardashian's hair stylist and Hair x Mane Addicts' editorial director, Justine Marjan, posted a full how-to for the cute buns (it's just seven easy steps)! I'm not sure it's a hair trend that I could ever pull off, but it's definitely been an easy hairstyle for the summer that has made it rounds through celebrity stylists. The mouse-like buns are certainly a throwback (I'm thinking Spice Girls, here) that may just be worth bringing back for 2016.
Baldwin's top knots look great because they are full with volume and are positioned closer together without looking too much like ears.
The stars' buns are almost identical!
To get Kardashian's Hailey-inspired look, Marjan listed these quick seven steps in an Instagram post:
1. Prep Damp Hair
Prep damp hair with a soft mousse and use a blow dryer and brush to dry.
2. Spilt Hair Down The Middle
Use a rattail comb to spilt hair down the middle and spilt each section horizontally.
3. Create Texture
Create texture with dry shampoo, especially at your roots.
4. Gather Section Into A High Pony
Use a detangling brush to gather the front section of one side of the head into a high pony, securing with an elastic, letting pieces around the face and hairline fall loose. Repeat with the back section, adding it to the pony with another elastic.
5. Repeat On Opposite Side
Make sure to repeat step four to get your double buns!
6. Gather Ponies Into Knots
Gather each ponytail and loop into a knot the secure with French pins.
7. Spray To Hold
