6 Ways To Wear Space Buns

June 16, 2022

Space buns are often associated with festivals, but this versatile look can be tailored to suit any occasion. They can be as messy or as sleek as you want, and look great on any hair length and texture.

How To Do Space Buns

Brush your hair and create a middle parting to split it into two sections. Make sure each side has an even amount of hair so that your buns are the same size. Create identical pigtails on each side of your head and wrap the length of your hair around each pigtail. Secure with bobby pins and finish with hair spray.

Our Exeter hairdressers are experts at creating beautiful hairstyles for any event, check out some of our favourite ways to wear space buns below.

Slick Space Buns

This style is great to hide a bad hair day and is the ideal way to keep your hair under control on days when it’s wet or humid. 

Shorter hair can be turned into mini space buns. These are perfect for keeping your hair out of the way at the beach or pool while still looking stylish.

Half Up Half Down

Putting half of your hair up into space buns and leaving the rest hanging loose lets you show off your texture, length, and colour while keeping hair off of your face. This style works particularly well on those with thick curly hair due to its natural volume.

Accessorised Space Buns

Accessories work well on either sleek or messy styles and can be tailored to suit your desired look.

Use bright hair clips to create a fun look or use a headband when you want to look a little more serious. Wrapping each space bun in a giant scrunchy is a new way to make use of this 90’s favourite.

Fanned Out Space Buns

Wrap the loose ends of your hair around your hair tye and leave the rest poking out to achieve this boho-chic look. This style is ideal for those with shorter styles as there isn’t always enough hair to create a classic bun shape.

Face Framing Space Buns

Tying your space buns further back on your head and leaving the front of your hair to hang down creates a lovely, face-framing style. If you have a fringe you can also make the most of this style by putting your hair into space buns and allowing your fringe to hang down as normal.

Braided Space Buns

Wrapping your braids into space buns is an easy way to add extra volume and texture to your look.
