Step By Step Guide To Get The Perfect Space Bun Look
Things You Will Need
- A Hair Brush
- Clear Elastics
- Bobby Pins
- Any Hair Spray Of Your Choice (optional)
Brush Your Hair Thoroughly
The first step is the same one that goes behind every hairstyle-brushing your hair. Grab a comb and brush your hair thoroughly until there are no knots or tangles left.
Part Your Hair Into Two Equal Sections
Next, take the comb and part your hair into two neat sections. You can either go for a simple partition, keeping it as straight as possible, or let your creativity get the best of you and opt for a zigzag partition. Whichever you choose, keep in mind that the sections have to equal.
Time For Ponytails
Once the previous step is completed, it’s time to create a ponytail. Grab a section and pull it up into a neat ponytail. You can go for a high ponytail at the top back of your head or a low ponytail on the bottom back of your head. Just keep in mind that wherever you decide to create the ponytail, that’s precisely where the bun will be.
Once you are done with one section of hair, move over to the second section and repeat the process. Remember to detangle all the remaining knots to get perfect buns. Also, if you are want to add a slightly messy look, leave a few strands of hair loose.
Plump It Up With A Volumizing Spray
If you want to jazz it up a little with extra volume, then grab your favorite volumizing spray and spritz it all over your hair in a circular motion. Then, to get a better texture and a distinctive plump look, you can scrunch up your hair and hold it for a few seconds. When you release the ponytail, you will notice it’s plumper and bouncier than before.
Wrap Your Hair To Create The Space Buns
Here is the step you have been eagerly waiting for till now. The preparation has been done, and now it’s time to grab the end of the ponytails and wrap it around the ponytail base. To get a sleek finish, you can also twist each section before wrapping it around the base.
Once the bun is ready, use bobby pins to seal the deal. If you want to create a seamless look, then opt for bobby pins that match your hair color.
Make Your Space Buns Last The Night With Your Favorite Hairspray
All the effort behind creating this exquisite hairstyle will go down the drain if it cannot stand the test of time. So, to ensure that you can have a fun night without messing up the buns, take your favorite hair spray and spray it all over your hair to lock in the style.
