It’s an eye-conic look!

From sleek pompadours to extravagant braids, American singer Janelle Monáe always wows us in the hair department. And just when we thought she had run out of innovative styling ideas, she goes and does something very unexpected to her hair buns!

Taking to social media, the fashion-forward star has jazzed up her cute space buns with a rather quirky hair accessory. Now, while we’ve seen our fair share of hair clips, pins, and jewellery, we’ve never seen anything like Janelle’s accessory choice before! Keep on scrolling and see what we mean…

For her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Janelle decided to take her ’90s-inspired space buns to the next level, with an eye-catching hair accessory (see what we did there!). Okay, so we’re not too sure what inspired the star to apply numerous stick-on googly eyes to her buns, but what we do know, is that we totally love this quirky look. Credit: @janellemonáe

Taking to Instagram to debut the funky look, Janelle captioned the above picture with the words: “???EVEN WHEN I’M SLEEPING I KEEP 20 eyes open.” We can tell! Now, if you’ve fallen head over heels for this wacky hairstyle, and wondering how you can recreate it at home, the answer is simple: stick some googly eyes (which you can purchase from an arts and craft store) to your bobby pins. Then all you have to do, is insert them into any updo you rock – easy-peasy, right? Credit: @janellemonáe 

 

If you loved these quirky hair buns, then you’re going to fall head over heels for the braided bun with hair rings that we created!
