Tousled hair, dewy skin and an “I woke up like this” vibe pretty much define the essence of French beauty. It’s one of the most coveted looks that women all over the world work so hard to create on their own, while also trying to appear like it was an effortless style to achieve, of course. Unsurprisingly, it’s easier said than done, and unless you live in France, it’s hard to know what beauty looks are actually “in.”

Luckily, Pinterest let us in on a little beauty secret straight from Paris. According to its data, the top pinned hair trend right now by French women is the “banana bun”—a “messy” and “easy” hairstyle that pretty much encapsulates everything we know French beauty to look like.
Similar to a French twist that sits low upon your head, the banana bun is created by simply rolling your hair up to the nape of your neck, popping in a few bobby pins to hold it in place and allowing a few front pieces to fall free. Once styled, you’ll instantly have that messy-yet-chic look that Parisians so effortlessly give off.
