Somewhere between Princess Leia's pain au raisin twists, and Miley's space buns lies the latest low-key French girl hair trend that's taking the internet (and our heads) by storm.

Yup, we're talking about macaron buns.

Sounds delicious right? Well, we reckon it looks pretty cute as well.

Named after Blair Waldorf's favourite French sweet treat, the style involves wearing two buns at the nape of your neck, somewhat similar to the round shape of a macaron.

Haven't heard of them? Well, it's totally a thing, Pinterest told us so. Turns out searches for 'macaron buns' have increased by 170% which means it's a certified trend.

Surprisingly versatile, wear your macarons twisted, messy or, in our favourite style, plaited.

Simply split your hair into two sections following a centre parting, plait into pigtails (keep the hair behind your head and plait down your back to make sure the buns sit at the nape of your neck), then twist each plait around itself to form a bun.

Secure with pins and spritz with hairspray, et voila!

Go for a sleeker finish to wear out out, or pull out strands of loose hair for a more 'Sienna at Glasto' vibe. Our top tip? Weave in flowers for the easiest wedding guest hair ever.

And if it all goes wrong, let the plaits hang loose in a loop - we're calling it the 'churro'.

There's only one thing left to say, 'Sun's out, buns out!'
