As far as weekend hair goes, the topknot has long reigned as the easiest 'do of them all—that is, until the banana bun usurped the throne. It’s perfectly messy, works with all hair types and (our favorite) is super simple to do yourself. Here’s how.

Step 1: Make a low pony at the base of your neck, leaving two sections loose, one on each side.

Step 2: Wrap the right side around the ponytail, but don’t pin anything just yet.

Step 3: Take the wrapped pony and twist it around the left section. Continue to turn your hair, pinning as you go.

Step 4: Tuck and pin any loose ends. If your hair is super long, tie the excess in a knot to shorten the ends.

See? Easy, messy, delightful.
