When Taylor Swift dropped her brand new album last week, it was exactly the surprise that we needed. Since then, everyone, and we mean EVERYONE has been talking about Folklore. Sure look, how could we not?

But as well as the 16 amazing songs, people are also going wild over Taylor’s braided buns, a massive talking point.

According to Adam Reed (UK editorial ambassador for L’Oréal Professionnel), it’s pretty achievable, and he told Stylist exactly how to master Taylor’s Folklore hairstyle. “You want to firstly start by creating a nice, soft texture to the hair. I would use salt spray on dry hair and work that through to give it a little bit of worn-in texture with a hint of grip.”

“Then, split the hair very softly into two rough sections, making sure there are no strong lines. Aim for a loose centre-parting from the front of the hairline and carry it through to the nape.

“Next up, braid the hair loosely creating two three-strand braids and secure the ends with an elastic hair tie. Then simply twist the braids around and knot them. Use a pin, pushing it behind the bun, for extra hold.

“The key is to keep it soft, textured and worn-in – you don’t want anything too neat and tidy with this look. Use a texturising product all over for a soft, romantic finish.”
