Step One: Create a Centre Parting

First, start by brushing your hair to ensure it's smooth and ready to style. Then, make a straight centre parting down the middle of your head and tie one side up and out of the way to ensure it doesn't get in the way while you concentrate on the other section.

Step Two: Clip in Your Hair Extensions

Next, take a small section of hair from the middle of your head on one side, close to your parting, and tie this with a bobble to create a small ponytail at the top middle of your head. Then, taking your Foxy Locks clip-in extensions, clip in all three wefts around the base of the ponytail.

Step Three: Create Two High Bunches

Once you've secured your clip-in extensions, brush this small ponytail to ensure there aren't any tangles. Next, gather up the rest of your hair from this side of your head and secure it all into a high pigtail at the back of your head, ensuring your extensions are hidden in the middle. For a 90s-inspired look, pull a few strands from the front of your hair and temple to frame your face. Repeat the exact steps on the other side of your hair until you are left with two high bunches on either side.

Step Four: Touch-up Roots and Backcomb

If your hair is fine or you simply want to ensure a completely flawless finish, consider using a root touch-up spray at this point to fill in your parting and any areas where your scalp may be slightly visible, a-la the Kardashians! Then, to give your bunches extra volume, gently backcomb each side, ready for the final step.

Final Step: Create Your Space Buns

Finally, take one of your bunches and twist the hair slightly down the length of the pigtail. Next, coil your hair around the base of the bobble to create a bun shape and secure tightly with another bobble. Gently pull out and manipulate the bun slightly for more volume. Then simply repeat the same process on the other side, ensuring your buns look as symmetrical as possible. Secure any loose areas of each bun with hair grips and your space buns should stay in place all day!
