Typically, being described as "spaced out" isn't the best thing. That is unless you've got cute space buns atop your head. There are so many ways to style these buns, and the added bonus is that it's one of those go-tos you can complete in just a few minutes. In other words, if space buns aren't in your rotation, they need to be. Check out our suggestions below that offer some inspo on how you can make this otherworldly look your own.
Tightly twist your hair around itself before spiraling it up into tight buns for an extra cute look. The best part is that you don't need hair to be dry for this simple 'do. You can style it fresh out of the shower, if needed. So for those days when you want to give your hair a little extra love—say like with our Mane Goals Deep Repair Mask—you can just rinse the mask out, throw your hair into these buns and jet out the door.
For a softer, dainty look, go for looser buns with cascading face-framing pieces. Once you've parted the hair and created the individual ponytails, pull a few pieces of hair out along your hairline. After you pin the buns, grab a straightener—our Style Setter is a great choice because of its 7/8-inch titanium plates that are ideal for working with smaller sections of hair. Then create a loose wave or even a curl for an intergalactically-approved look.
Adding some color to your buns can give your far-out look a whole new dimension. And it's super easy when using hair chalk, which gives you cosmic color without the commitment (or the hair damage). Our Hair Chalk comes in a variety of vibrant hues that you can streak onto your locks before styling. Trust us, the pops of color will give your buns so much life!
Space buns are a great way to show off your natural curls, and you don't even have to do much to pull off the look because the buns themselves are a cinch. Before styling hair, apply a little of the NuMe Argan Oil for added luster and softness that won't weigh your curls down. Then just make a clean part down the middle, band each section, fluff and there you go! Cute, curly buns that you'll love to the moon and back.
Get the best of both worlds with a half up-half down style that is sure to please the eye. The options for this look are endless with the ability to do loose buns or tighter ones, have a few pieces hanging down around the face or go for a sleeker, pulled-back version. Even the hair you leave down can be straight, wavy or curled. Grab the Megastar X with larger floating plates to help you achieve your desired look and then rock-et like pro.
For something truly unexpected, why not french braid the top sections before bunning? For the best results, you should start on clean, dry hair. Our Stealth Hair Dryer uses far infrared heat that reduces drying time, so you can knock out your styles even faster. (Also, it comes in an irresistible rose gold—'nuff said.) Once dry, simply braid each section of hair about half way, band it and bun the rest. Your space buns will be universally adored.
