Social media has just dubbed the “octopus bun” the next big hair trend for summer, and truth be told, we’re a little confused. With such an adorable name, it’s hard not to love the style right off the bat, however, it seems like this “new” look has been trending since, well, forever.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s what the style looks like: Hair is pulled up into a knotted twist at the top of your head with the ends splayed out along the top of your head like the tentacles of an octopus. Sound familiar? We thought so too. It’s basically just a messy bun that the internet decided to give a cute name to in order to make it feel fresh again.
