BEAUTY BAR: Space Buns

Looking at the hot trend of space buns, you can easily trace the origin back to Miley Cyrus, who famously rocked them at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Miley’s look was quite a shocking appearance and wardrobe choice, but this Fashionista found a way to update the fun hairstyle.

Now don’t be too afraid to rock some space buns this holiday season. This look can easily be made to look classy and still spunky for a holiday party. Wearing the buns in the half-up-half-down style relaxes the whole look. This Fashionista chose to braid her hair before forming it into a bun. By doing this, it transforms the buns from a party hairstyle, to an everyday casual look.

The thing I love the most about this hairstyle is how versatile it is. You can easily wear it for a night out with the girls or to a dinner with family. Depending on how you style it, you can have a fun outfit or keep it casual like this Fashionista. She wanted to try out a different look to get rid of the midweek blues and thought space buns would be the perfect way to do so. She kept it classic by wearing blue jeans and paired them with a pretty creme blouse. Here is a similar top!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: First, start with a middle part. Then take the hair right above your ears, to the crown of your head and use a clear elastic to tie both sides up on the top of your head. With each mini ponytail, create a basic braid and wrap it around using bobby pins to secure the bun. Spray with some hair spray and you’re set! Depending on your mood, you can leave your hair natural, curled or straighten it!
