Hi everyone. I’m still working on my second South Africa vlog, so, in the mean time, I thought I would put up a fun little post about experimenting with hairstyles.
Now I know space buns aren’t exactly new or very experimental for most people, but they’re a hair style I haven’t had much experience with myself. I decided to try them out and was not disappointed.
I put my hair up in a single bun all the time, so I though adding one more wouldn’t be too difficult. I didn’t think about the time it would take to part my hair down the middle. It honestly took me quite a while to get a nice even part down the middle.
I’m not one of those people who can only worry about what my hair looks like from the front. I really really hate a hair part that isn’t even. I couldn’t get mine exactly perfect, but I’m happy to say it didn’t have any really noticeable uneven bits.
Putting my hair into the actual space buns was the easy part. The only thing I struggled with was getting them to look symmetrical. I usually wind my buns counterclockwise. It worked great for the bun on my left side, but winding the bun on the right side counterclockwise didn’t look as great. It just had the tendency to sag.
I tried winding the bun clockwise, but I just couldn’t get that to look quite right. Instead, I ended up aiming to put the bun on the right side higher than it was supposed to be. That way, when it sagged, it would be in the right place.
I think they ended up looking pretty good. I felt super cute all day. It was definitely a good hair day. I’m planning on trying these space buns again because I think they’ll become easier to do with a bit more practice.
I would highly encourage you guys to try a hairstyle that’s a little out of your comfort zone. You might end up really liking it. Thanks for reading!
