I’ve had the request to share this little “space buns” hair tutorial for a little while now, so here I am — finally jumpin’ on it! I’ll just dive right in, but I will add right now – if you don’t know how to dutch braid, you will need to know for this, so here’s a good tutorial for that, here. 🙂
WHAT YOU’RE GONNA NEED:
- Bobbi pins
- Hair Spray, this is my fav, here
- Dry shampoo or texture spray, my fav is, here
- Small elastics
(ps. there’s a video tutorial below this if you like that more!)
Start by parting your hair down the middle, then spraying with a dry shampoo (or texturizing spray) in sections through to the ends. Section off the side you’re not braiding first. Then prepare to start the dutch braid on the first side.
Start your dutch braid on the first side and take it about an inch past your crown. Then rubber band, tighten the pony tail and loosen up the braid to give it a messier look.
Next, grab the rest of that side and pull it up into a pony tail, then rubber band. Again, keep the braid messy looking. This look, looks best when it’s casual and messy.
Next, wrap in a bun, but take about 1-2″ (depending on your hair length) at the end and tuck it in the center of the wrapped bun. (Watch the video if this doesn’t make sense to you). Spray with hairspray and repeat these steps on the opposite side! Bobbi pin as needed.
