As we coil and pin our way into the Second Wave of the half-bun, public opinion still remains divided over the style's aesthetic appeal. Is it a do? Is it a don't? Who cares as long as it gets your hair up and away without straining your neck because topknots are so damn heavy? To entertain/make fun of ourselves because we're cool like that, we've compiled five things our heads now resemble thanks to fashion. Is that an acorn? Yes. Yes it is.

Even though this is totally anachronistic, Ai Weiwei *would* be the one to see JLo's vertical half-bun in a dream and be inspired by its texture.

3. A finial

Finial = fancy topper thingy for fancy architecture. Half-bun = fancy topper thingy for your head.

4. The poop emoji
