With ’90s trends still in full effect, it’s easy to understand why we’re stumbling upon the space buns hairstyle on Pinterest. The iconic do – worn on the big screen by Carrie Fisher and then recreated in the 1990’s by Gwen Stefani and the Spice Girls – is seriously out of this world.

This extraterrestrial hairdo has us singing “my anaconda don’t want none unless you’ve got buns, hun!”

Whether you’re feeling pumped up about Star Wars: Rogue One and having major Princess Leia vibes, or just looking for a music festival inspired hairstyle, the double bun trend is the way to go. It’s effortless, easy and crazy cute.

Here’s an easy space bun tutorial that will help you achieve this magical hair look. But before we get started, turn on “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt and unleash your inner ’90s Gwen Stefani.

What you’ll need:

Hairbrush
Comb
Bobby pins
4 Hairband
Hairspray

Step 1: Brush out all of your tangles

Don’t worry about your hair being full of volume! My hair tends to get frizzy after I brush it out but, this will work in your favor in the end.

Step 2: Part your hair

Because this is such a playful look, you can create any kind of part that you desire. I parted my hair in a zig zag style in the front and went with a simple middle part in the back. Basically, party in the front and business in the back.

Step 3: Separating your hair and creating pigtails

For this step, try keeping your parts separate. I used my brush to help me create a side ponytail. I made sure to keep my pigtails high up towards the front part of my head that way the buns are the main attraction! Repeat this step on the other side.

Step 4: Tease your hair

To add volume to my double buns, I teased my hair after I put them in pigtails. The more teased your hair is, the more full your buns will look. Repeat this step for the other part.

Step 5: Twist your hair and roll it up in a bun

After you’ve teased your mane to your heart’s desire, twist your hair and roll it up to create a bun. Again, have fun with this look. I decided the messier the bun, the cuter it would be. Repeat this step for the other part.

Step 6: Almost done!

Once you’ve twisted your hair and rolled it up into a bun, add your second set of ponytail holders. Because I have thick hair I need extra hairbands but if you’d like, you can just add bobby pins to hold your buns in place.

Step 7: Finishing touches

Add your favorite hairspray or texture spray to keep your out–of–this world space buns in place all day.

Beauty Buys: Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Tutorial

Because I want you guys to look and feel fabulous and fierce, I want to share one of my favorite beauty products with you: The Younique 3D Fiber Lashes ($29).

**** I had to add my mom’s link (she’s a presenter). She is the one who showed me the lashes **** 

You can view my video below for the simple step-by-step process of how to apply the product! (the process is also listed below the blog post)

My mom introduced me to this beauty product, and by introduce, I really mean bought me the fiber lashes. How could I say no to that? At first, I was really skeptical. I didn’t like the idea of putting fibers on my lashes. I already hated putting on the fake eyelashes. I don’t like glue being on my eyes. And, even though it’s a steal (they’re like $4 at drugstores), it becomes a splurge (for me) since I always mess up. So I already had a distaste for eyelash beauty products. It’s not like I can afford getting eyelash extensions, either. So really good mascara has been my best friend…. up until now.

Being vain and showing off my fierce eyes.

I listened to my mom, and tried the fiber lashes. Guess what?? I LOVE IT!!! I love that the fiber lashes are easy to apply. It’s as simple as putting on mascara. Easy, breezy. The fiber lashes last longer than two months, too! I’m going on three months since first using mine and I’m not running out any time soon.

End Result

Fabulous Eyes.

Simple Step-By-Step Process: Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

Step 1:

  • Apply any brand of regular mascara
    • In my video I used Maybelline’s Volum’ Express Falsies Flared ($5.99 Drugstores)
    • Before applying the Younique Fiber Lashes, let the mascara completely dry. It creates a foundation and something for the gel and the fibers to cling onto.

Step 2:

  • Apply the Gel
    • I like to work with one eye at a time because you don’t want the gel to dry before applying the fibers. Remember the fibers need to stick to the gel. If the gel is already dry the fibers won’t have anything to stick to and your under-eyes will look really bad.

Step 3:

  • Apply the Fibers
    • I like to make sure the fiber brush isn’t thick with the fibers. Dust the fly away fibers inside the tube.

Step 4:

  • Apply the Gel
    • Immediately after applying the fibers, apply the gel again. Make sure that you seal the fibers. You don’t want any fibers falling all over your face throughout the day.

*You can apply as many coats as desired. I like to apply 1 coat during the day, and 2 coats if I’m going out at night.
