Short hair and buns are a match made in style heaven. With the right styling, your pixie cut can have as much versatility as longer lengths. Space buns are a great example of short hair with volume. This hairstyle is all about playing with proportions and combining textures. Instead of hiding your natural texture, you’ll enhance it by teasing your hair or using mousse or gel to add lift at the roots. Learn how to do space buns with short hair in this quick and easy tutorial featuring step-by-step instructions, helpful tips, and images of real women who have achieved this look.
How To Do Space Buns With Short Hair
- Apply a small amount of hair gel or mousse to your hair. For the best results, use a type that is designed for short hair.
- Comb the gel or mousse through your hair until it’s evenly distributed throughout the length of your hair.
- Then use a wide-tooth comb to tease the roots and add some texture to your style.
- Pick up a section of your hair and pull it back into a high ponytail bun, making sure there are no knots in the ponytail. If you want more volume, you can use bobby pins instead of combs to secure your bun in place.
- Next, take another section of hair and push it down on top of the ponytail from above so that it looks like a bun with bangs (see photo). Make sure that any part of this section that falls over the side is pulled back into an updo with bobby pins to keep it out of sight (see photo). You can also do this step by pulling some sections forward or backward at random points if you want more volume in spots over your face rather than just on one side (see photo). Then bring all these sections together at the nape of your neck and secure them with bobby pins (see photo). You can also pull up another section on top to give yourself some height before securing everything at once (see photo).
- Next, tease the roots of your hair a little more. This will help add volume to the space buns and also create some texture.
- To finish off the look, pull your bangs forward and back to create some volume in front of your face (see photo). You can also pull them to one side and pin them back into place if you want a more defined bang (see photo).
- Finish off with a small side part and some light hairspray for hold (see photo).
What Products Do I Need To Apply My New Style?
- Hair gel or mousse. If your hair is short, use a volumizing product to add lift and body. If your hair is longer, use a texturizing product.
- Hair brush or comb to tease the roots of the hair so that it stands up on end and looks full.
- A wide-tooth comb for detangling wet hair after washing it with shampoo and conditioner.
- A curling iron (if you want to curl the hair). Use hot rollers if you don’t have one.
- Hairpins or clips to secure your new style in place while you sleep or work out at the gym (optional).
- A headband if you want to wear your new hairstyle while sleeping or exercising (optional).
- You don’t need a lot of time to style your hair.
- You can create different looks with different accessories and braids.
- You can easily create a braid out of your hair without using bobby pins or clips.
- If you have long hair, you can wear it up or down for this hairstyle to look great on your head!
How Long Does It Take To Grow Short Hair?
- It depends on your hair type and the length you want. For example, if you have fine hair, it will take longer than if you have thick, wavy or curly hair.
- If your hair is very short and you want to grow it out, it will take at least six months to a year to get the desired length.
- If your hair is short and you want to grow it out for a special occasion or for a special event, you can do it in four months or less depending on how quickly your hair grows.
- If you have long hair and decide to cut off all of it without growing it out first, be prepared for an extremely painful process that takes weeks in order for the ends of your hair to grow back enough so that they are not painful when they touch your skin.
- You can also go shorter with longer hair by using scissors but be prepared for pain and discomfort as well as possible damaging damage to the ends of your strands while cutting off long lengths of hair at once!
