19 Celebrities Who Made Us Consider Wearing Space Buns

There are certain nostalgic styles that'll never, ever get old, many of which were born in the '90s. The decade was an iconic time for hair, as It-girl styles began surging onto the scene. This is when we saw space buns for the first time, donned by celebs like Baby Spice and Gwen Stefani. Since then, these fierce double buns have become a staple hairstyle at some of the world's biggest festivals like Coachella and Burning Man.

The popularity of space buns is likely due to the fact that they're just fun, whether you wear them plain or dress them up with hair accessories or glitter. The non-fuss style is ideal for a leisurely day when the last thing you want is to deal with your hair. It's become a go-to style among celebs, too. Zendaya, Khloé Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, and Cara Delevingne have stepped out in double buns a few times. Scroll to see how space buns can be worn in a variety of ways on all hair textures.

For Long Hair

With long hair, your options are practically endless. Don a half-up, half-down style like Ariana Grande and Joan Smalls. Or let your messy double buns live their best life like Josephine Skriver's. 

For Short Hair

Millie Bobby Brown's bob looks cooler than cool—if that's even possible—paired with her two loose double buns. Mini buns are also a thing, as seen on Tinashe. Or you could take a page out of Katy Perry's book and add hair extensions in a fun color if you're feeling adventurous. 

For Thick Hair

Thanks to your thick hair, your space buns will look full, voluminous, large, and in charge. 

For Fine Hair

Experimenting with textured styles like space buns will breathe some life into your fine strands. Also, try letting your tendrils loose. 

For Curly Hair

Try switching things up and putting your curlicues up into this playful style. Two afro puffs are always better than one. 

For Natural Hair

This style is so versatile and looks stunning on all textures, including natural hair. SZA's blown-out natural hair looks so effortlessly cool. You can also slick down your hair like Zendaya and Jourdan Dunn.
