There was one Coachella beauty trend we didn't see coming.

Move over, braids — there’s a new hairstyle taking over the festival scene, and it might just remind you of your favourite Disney mouse.

They’re called ‘space buns’, and model Jess Hart and bestie Poppy Delevingne were among the hundreds of people sporting them at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California at the weekend.

Yep, looks like the festival style staples of flower crowns and chokers have some serious competition.

Partly inspired by Star Wars character Princess Leia’s iconic double buns, and part reminiscent of Minnie (or Mickey) Mouse ears – space buns are the ultimate in fun, carefree hairstyling.

Whether it’s braided hair leading to buns, a half-up half-down ‘do or simply two big, bouncy buns, this hairstyle can be as complicated or fuss-free as you like and still look insanely cool.
