Instagram is chock-block full of original and striking beauty trends, but there's a new hair craze that's been sweeping the app and going viral - bun dropping. This mesmerising techniques sees beauty addicts and bloggers around the world putting their hair up in bun hairstyles, then filming themselves as they undo the style and let their long hair cascade down, revealing the full length of their tresses. The style of bun doesn't matter – fans have been trying the trend using a host of different looks including top knots, ballerina buns and chignons.
We've rounded up some of our favourite clips below that are sure to give you serious hair envy…
@haselnussblond kept her bun in a place with a simple but pretty haircomb which she easily removed to let her hair tumble down, as she enjoyed a hike in the great outdoors.
Some bloggers have been adjusting the speed of their video for a striking effect – we can't stop watching @miss_longhair's impressively lengthy tresses as they spiral from an effortless bun into natural cascading curls.
This trend works best if you have long hair to get the desired cascading effect as the bun unravels and reveals the full length of your locks like the look@ladyamalthea84 is rocking.
We're loving the way @siri.lenja took the craze one step further and teamed up with a friend for this impressive synchronised bun dropping video.
We can't look away from @flonghair's glossy tresses thanks to the super slow-motion she's added to the video to give her followers a proper look at the way her tresses fall out of the bun hairstyle.
@haartraum not only had us coveting her glossy long hair, but she also gave us a serious case of wanderlust as she posed in front of a stunning backdrop in Croatia.
