Space buns are an adorable and beautiful head-dress, which is meanwhile so easy to perform. We are going to prove to you that and tell you how to make space buns.

How to do space buns hairstyle?

The main advantages of this head-dress are a convenience, ability to perform both on long and short locks and, of course, simplicity and little time of making them. To create this hairstyle, you will need thin elastic hairbands, a comb and hairpins.

Easy space buns tutorial

All you need to do to create a classic option of this hairstyle is to follow these simple three steps:

  1. To begin with, it is necessary to divide the main mass of your hair into two parts and make two high ponytails from each of them, fixing them with a thin elastic hairband. You can apply some gel to help yourself comb your locks and make it sleeker and shinier, or you can leave it natural looking.
  2. Take another elastic hairband and wrap around a ponytail once, and for the second time wrap one of your ponytails halfway. Then you need to wrap the ends around the already created bun. Fix the ends with hairpins.
  3. Repeat the same with the second ponytail.

This is the result that you are going to achieve.

You can make the procedure even more straightforward:

  1. First, divide the hair into two parts.
  2. Then make a bun from each of them without even using elastic hairbands, but only fixing it with hairpins.

This option is more suitable for owners of short and not very heavy thick locks because otherwise, hairpins will not hold the weight of the hair and the whole thing can fall apart. Also, owners of short African type hair can just leave two ponytails and get extra voluminous updo by teasing locks. The difference will not be visible.

As you can see, just two or three steps are keeping you away from looking like a cute and adorable princess.
