Everyone knows that Kendall Jenner is one of the top style icons out there right now, which means she is a constant source for inspiration. For example, when I saw her space buns hairstyle this summer, I knew that I had to steal it! Luckily, around the same time, I also came across this video, which made recreating the look so much easier! 

This hairstyle is a quick and easy way to get all of your hair off of your neck during hot days. It's also a very versatile look because it fits within the boho style but is also reminiscent of the '90s (think No Doubt, Spice Girls, and Sailor Moon), a decade that has made quite the comeback lately. If you love this hairstyle as much as I do, check out the video above and instructions below to see how you can create it for yourself.  

What You Need

  • 2 large elastics
  • 2 small elastics
  • Hair brush
  • Bobby pins
  • Curling iron/wand (optional)
  • Hairspray (optional)


How To Do It

  1. Start this look by tying your hair into high pigtails. Use large, strong elastics to hold them in place.
  2. If your hair doesn't have a lot of natural volume or texture, use a brush to fluff it up a bit. Don't tease it, just give it a bit of body. 
  3. Next, create a three-strand braid with each pigtail, secure the ends with small elastics, and then pancake them. 
  4. To create your buns, wrap the braids around the large elastics. Make sure you wrap from back to front rather than front to back in order to avoid creating funny bumps. 
  5. Secure each bun in place with bobby pins. 

To finish off this style, use a wand or an iron to create some soft curls around your face. If you don't have any loose hair, simply spritz the buns with a bit of hairspray and you're done!
