The year 1977 saw the premiere of one of the most iconic Sci-Fi films in the world – and most importantly one of the most fabulous hairstyles. Whether you’re a fan of the film or you’ve had to endure it for the sake of your other half – we can’t help but love this look. So it’s time we gave you the low-down on how to achieve this Sci-Fi look.
Quick and Easy Sci-Fi buns
Quick and Easy Sci-Fi buns are the ultimate go to for any beginner creating this style. Whether you’re transforming into a Sci-Fi princess for a night on the town or you’re looking to catch your partner’s attention, this style is both simple and stunning. Created to give a flawless look, that’s effortless to achieve – it’s perfect for any princess.
Get the look: All you’ll need for this look is a hair brush, two bobbles and two hair donuts. We suggest choosing your donut size dependent on how big you want your buns to be. So, let’s talk about getting the look. Start by simply putting your hair up into two pony tails and pull the hair through the hole in each donut. Wrap the hair around the area of the donut until it’s no longer visible and then tuck it underneath to secure the hair. Finish with a spritzing of hairspray to secure the look.
Advanced Sci-Fi buns
In our opinion, if you want to give your hair the royal treatment, the Advanced Sci-Fi buns are the perfect choice. This style is slightly more complex than the Quick and Easy Sci-Fi buns but trust us, putting in the groundwork really pays off. This style looks fabulous on any hair, but the longer and thicker your hair is, the bigger your buns can be. So, it’s time to up your style credentials and get the ultimate Sci-fi princess look.
Get the look: To get the look, simply put the hair up into two evenly sized pony tails. Next take one pony tail and twist it tightly, slowly begin to wrap the hair around itself to form a bun. Then, secure with some hair grips and repeat on the other side. Finish with a strong layer of hairspray to secure the look in place.
Festival Sci-Fi buns
If you’re looking for a funky hairstyle that makes you stand out from the crowd, the Festival Sci-Fi buns are a must. This hairstyle is so quirky and present; we think it could be our favourite festival look – and it’s perfect for mid-way through the festival when your hair is looking a little worse for wear. If you like your look to be unique, we recommend adding your own individual twist to this style by decorating your hair with glitter, jewellery and streaks. This style can also look really good on dreadlocked hair, making you look festival ready with a futuristic edge.
