Braids with Space Buns

Part hair in the center. Section from recession to recession. Starting on one side, braid back to the area you want to place your space bun and go a couple of inches beyond. Secure your braid with an elastic. Repeat for the other side. Now to create your space buns; back comb the hair below the elastic. Loop it around once and pin. Loop the rest of the hair around the base and pin again. Repeat for the other side. To attach glitter or rhinestones on the part, use eye lash glue and tweezers. Be sure to adhere them to the scalp so they stay in place.

Part hair in the center all the way to the nape. Secure the side you aren’t working on with a clip. Dutch or french braid hair to behind the ear and secure with an elastic. Repeat on the other side. You can finish your braids by wrapping them with leather cord or by wrapping a small section of hair around the elastic and tucking it in.

Again, part hair in the center all the way to the nape. Secure the side you are not working on with a clip. Pull one side into a ponytail and secure with an elastic. To begin creating the bubbles, put an elastic about 4 fingers down. Once this is secure, begin pulling the hair out on all sides to create the bubble. Repeat the process about another 4 fingers down until you reach the ends. Once you have finished both sides, you can embellish with leather cord if you like.
