This season, the chignon bun is being split into two to give us an array of hairstyles, each one even more on-trend than the last. We take a look at space buns and 5 ways you can wear them this summer.
Snail shell mini buns
Have you had enough of the half-bun? Opt for these practical and easy-to-create mini space buns instead!
To create this hairstyle, select a section of hair from one side of your middle parting and bring it towards the back of the head to form a mini chignon. Wind your locks around themselves, tightening as you go, to create a “snail shell” shape. Do the same thing with a section of hair on the other side of your parting to balance out the hairstyle. Once the two buns are in place, simply let the rest of your hair fall down naturally.
Two-tone braided space buns
To showcase your balayage or tie dye and if your hair is very long, opt for this semi-braided version of space buns!
After marking out a middle parting, create two inverted braids by plaiting from the nape of the neck and finishing at the top of the head. This will showcase all of the shades of your colouring treatment. All that’s left to do next is wind the rest of your locks around themselves to create these two-tone buns.
