I have a confession to make: As a teenager, I always envied those girls who could pull off a high ponytail complete with two thin strands of hair hanging loosely at the front. It was effortless yet sassy. It’s the style you shift into when you’ve had a busy Sunday strolling around the flower market and you need to put your hair up in a slightly disheveled bun. And by “casually,” we mean head to the bathroom to artfully pile it on top of your head and take strands out so it doesn’t look too “done.”
With this throwback look popping up on social media, we initiated an intense googling session. What even is this hair trend called? I thought to myself. Because we couldn’t find the official name of this trend, we’ve decided to coin it “tiny tendrils,” for no other reason than these strands of hair are indeed tiny cheekbone-shaping tendrils cascading down your face.
