Double the bun, double the fun. 

Celebs like Sofia Richie and Cara Delevingne have long been acquainted with the messy bun and the top knot, so it was only a matter of time, really, until they got bored. While the type of bun you wear on the regular says a lot about you, it actually says more when you're willing to step out of your comfort zone with a rad, new style. 

"Most people might be intimidated by a double-bun style because it can border on juvenile, but it's a really fun, of-the-moment hairstyle for summer," shared celeb hairstylist Suzie Kim. If you're game to give it a go, here are three simple versions you can try at home!

The Low Double Bun

"This is probably the lowest-key way to do the double bun," shared Suzie.

Step 1: Part hair down the middle and secure each section into two low ponytails. "You don't need to brush your hair smooth; it looks better a little messy because when it's sleek and tight it can look childish," warned the pro.

Step 2: Twist each pigtail loosely and use a teasing brush to tease upwards. "You can spray a little dry shampoo on the area before you tease to give it a little texture if needed," shared Suzie.

Step 3: Wrap hair around the base and secure with bobby pins. "To keep it looking wispy and boho-like, tug at your buns to pull them apart a little," she summed up to complete the look. 

The Vertical Double Bun

"This is an editorial look, so only go this route if you're a high-fashion kind of girl looking for some newfound edge," encouraged Suzie.

Step 1: Instead of parting hair down the middle, like normal, part hair horizontally, dividing it into two sections. 

Step 2: "Place the top bun where you feel most comfortable—if you have a round face, place it higher up on your head and if you have a longer face, place it lower," shared Suzie.

Step 3: Place the bottom bun in the center of the lower section and loop both buns loosely, being sure not to pull your hair all the way through.

Step 4: Wrap each loop around the base and secure. "This double wrap gives you volume without having to tease your hair," mentioned the pro.

Step 5: Keep pinning until you get the twisted loops into place, then lightly mist the look with hairspray. And you're done!

The High Double Bun

"This is the riskiest way to wear double buns because it's so in your face—but it's what the celebs are doing right now and it's actually really fun," shared Suzie.

Step 1: Part hair vertically down the center and place pigtails on the top, center of your head. "Look at yourself in the mirror to make sure they're even and that they aren't too far apart," noted the stylist.

Step 2: Tease the underside of each pigtail to give the bun a touch of volume.

Step 3: Loosely twist the end of each ponytail and pin into place. "I think it looks cuter if you leave the tails out for a messier, more playful feel," shared the pro.

Step 4: Take a peek in the mirror to make sure they look even. "Feel free to pin away the mistakes until they are where you want them," said Suzie.

Now that's what we call buns, hun.
