IDK about you, but space buns are my "zero effort, but I look like a million bucks" go-to look - I'm pretty sure I can do them while asleep. They're chic, they're clean and they give an affordable facelift.
You can always keep it simple for a day look or add a few bold accessories and you're ready for a music festival. Either way, you need the same products for the perfect space buns.
1. Grab your fave leave-in conditioner

It's super important to hydrate and moisturise your hair before manipulating it. The Hask 5-in-1 leave-in is one of my all-time favourite leave-in conditioner - my hair absorbs moisture easily, so this always helps hydrate my scalp.
2. You'll need a detangling hairbrush

To achieve that sleek look, a detangling hairbrush is the best way to get your hair laid. I have 4c natural hair (it's the thickest of the bunch) so I always have to switch between a toothbrush and a hairbrush.
3. Use an edge control (or gel)

You definitely need a good edge control to keep your buns looking fresh and neat. If you have thick hair like mine, I recommend using a gel with strong hold protection. Got 2B is my holy grail.
You can keep it simple with bobby pins or bold with some colourful hair clips, depending on the occasion. I usually like to use bobby pins to create a pattern on a bun. I'm obsessed with these ones from Zara.
