The Force Awakens Hair Tutorial

I have just seen The Force Awakens and I loved many things about it. The most spoiler free and beauty blog appropriate aspect was Rey’s hair. Remember, this is the same franchise that brought us the Leia buns so it’s not a surprise there’s another iconic look within the 7th instalment.

This look is incredibly simple. I have recreated a very rough version for you. First you need to pin back the very front section of your hair.

Then your hair will need to be separated into three sections. Take each section and tie it back into an easy loop bun. You can do this by just not pulling the ponytail all the way through.

Do do this for each section and leave two strands of hair free at the front in the ‘side burn’ area.

But for a much more comprehensive tutorial and a neater look, check out this video tutorial.

May the force be with you.

Happy Star Wars Day!

In honour of Star Wars day, I thought I’d bring you a Princess Leia hair tutorial!

Most of the tutorials involve sock buns, unless you have one of those fancy hair donuts. Here is the easiest and most straight forward video I could find.

If you don’t have a hair donut, you will have to sacrifice two socks, but it is definitely the easiest way to get the look.

I tried it out myself…

Help me, Obi Wan! Didn’t go quite so seamlessly for me because I am rubbish at sock buns, but you can tell who I’m supposed to be. Probably.

Good luck, and May the Force be with you.
