- Space buns were a popular hairstyle in the ’90s but they’ve gotten a makeover for 2022.
- The “elevated” space bun hairstyle trend has been worn by countless celebrities.
- See examples of the hairstyle on Yara Shahidi, Marsai Martin, Olivia Rodrigo, and more.
The ’90s have made a huge comeback and we’re soaking up every second of it, but not every retro beauty trend has come back quite as strong as the space buns hairstyle. The beloved double-bun look has proven to be a favorite among celebrities like Marsai Martin, Charli D’Amelio, Olivia Rodrio, Yara Shahidi, and many, many more — not to mention countless people on TikTok and Instagram alike.
The secret to this Zenon-inspired hairstyle is its versatility. The simplest version of it — two pigtails twisted into buns — can be created in a matter of minutes with just two hair-ties, but as this trend has grown over the last year or so, we’ve seen different variations of the space bun hairstyle hit our social media feeds, leading to the creation of the “elevated space buns hairstyle.” Half-up half-down, curled, and braided details make the style extra trendy and wearable outside of the original festival-type destinations that the look was produced from.
“I’ve been seriously loving space buns and have been seeing an increase in requests from my clients for that style,” celebrity hairstylist Laura Polko tells POPSUGAR. “It’s a universal style that looks great on any hair type and texture, and lets your face truly shine through.”
When you make it your own, it gives the nostalgic style a refreshing update, making it perfect for 2022. Get inspiration for the elevated space buns
