How to get Princess Leia's hair! (two versions)

The title says it all, really! Create perfect Leia buns with this easy tutorial. I've included two different versions - one for longer hair, and an easy trick to boost the size of your buns ideal for all hair types. Watch the video for instructions and feel free to ask me any questions if you're unsure about a particular step! Enjoy :)

PS: I've recently found out that the US equivalent of a hair rat a 'bun maker' is! You can apparently get them at Walgreens and they looks something like this: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/hype-hair-bun-maker/ID=prod6026708-product

Do have a look around though as they sometimes sell them as a long bit, like the one I use in my video - saves you the cutting!
This is great! :) I'm planning on being Leia for Halloween and will definitely use this - I have elbow length hair but I may use a bun maker anyway for a good bun size :D Nice job!
Nice instructable.<br>Do you think this buns will last in place in my 6 years old daugther?
