If you’ve ever watched Star Wars (or any sci-fi film), you’ve probably considered giving space buns a try. The style was made famous by Carrie Fisher in her role as Princess Leia, with the look having a resurgence following the latest trilogy of the franchise. Outside of the Star Wars inspiration, this hair style brings together 90s trends with a fun e-girl look. This style is easier to create than you might expected, and it’s a versatile way of styling your hair.
Next time you’re thinking of wearing a ponytail, give the cool space buns a try. We’re rounding up a few of our favourite ways to wear this trend to give you inspiration for how you can jump on the bandwagon as well. We’re also sharing the easiest way to create the iconic space buns.
Before we jump into our three favourite ways of styling space buns, we want to give you a quick how-to guide on creating the look. All you need is a hair brush, elastics, bobby pins, and a hairspray to keep it all together.
Step 1: Start by brushing your hair to make sure its knot-free and split your hair into two sections with a middle parting. You want to try and make your parting as straight as possible to create two even space buns.
Step 2: Make each section into a ponytail, sitting at the back of the crown of your head. You want to avoid creating any bumps in your hair. You can adjust your ponytail until it’s in the place where you want your space buns to sit. Try to create a symmetrical look by having your ponytails an equal distance from your parting.
Step 3: Wrap your hair around the base of the ponytail. Hold the bun in place and secure it with the bobby pins. If you want to create a sleek look, it’s best to use a colour that matches your hair.
Step 4: Finish off your look with hairspray!
Your space buns don’t have to be sitting to perfection. You can keep your look casual and let a few strands sit loose around your hair, both at the back and in the buns.

We often think of space buns as being a sleek back look with all your hair out of your face and a middle parting. If you’re partial to your fringe, you can leave the front section of your hair out to create curtain bangs. This style works best when you have layers in your hair or a longer fringe to play with.

Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020. Changing up your hairstyle can be as much a statement of your personality and development as it is about fashion. In 2020, many of us had to do our hair from home and master the art of the box-dye and even cutting our own fringe. We hope that this year we get to return to the salons for a professional cut. With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
When we think of trends, we often focus on specific garments and aesthetics. Colours play just as important a role in defining trends, and they’re more overarching than any style niche or specific trend. Whether you’re a fan of the Y2k aesthetic or you have a classic Preppy style, these colours are a way you can incorporate the latest trends into your daily wardrobe. We’re rounding up the 5 biggest colour trends for 2021 that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe ASAP.
We’ve all watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s and wished we could dress like Audrey Hepburn. If you take a dig around Instagram, you’ll find thousands of girls who wear exclusively vintage (or vintage-inspired) pieces. It’s a niche within the industry that’s becoming increasingly popular as people decide to follow their own personal style instead of trends. Vintage fashion isn’t all modest, and it’s a wide umbrella term that encompasses every decade prior to the early 2000s.
