Introduction: StarWars Rey Hair

Here is another StarWars inspired hairstyle. This is a really fun look and I think it would be great if you are trying to achieve a very dramatic, fierce look. This can be done on medium-long hair and it might even work on short hair as well. Enjoy!

Step 1: Brush Hair

The first step to any hairstyle is to brush the hair and smooth it out. If the hair is very fine or silky add some salt spray or dry shampoo to give texture.

Step 2: Make the First Bun

You are going to use a clear elastic and section off 1/3 of the hair and put it into a ponytail, on the last loop only pull it half-way through.

Step 3: Hair Wrap the Bun

Take a small piece of hair from the hair that is left out of the bun. Wrap it all the way around the clear elastic band and pin with a bobby pin.

Step 4: Make the Second Bun

Part out half of the hair from the leftover hair and make another bun just like the first one. Take a small piece of hair from the bottom of the second bun and wrap it the same as before.

Step 5: Leave Pieces of Hair Out

Before making the 3rd bun leave small pieces of hair out at the front. Then curl them, I'm using a Remington curling wand.

Step 6: Make the 3rd Bun

Make a third bun just like the other two. This bun will have some excess hair at the bottom. This can be hidden by tucking it inside the bun and pinning around it with bobby pins.

Step 7: Finish With Hairspray

Finish off your hairstyle with some hairspray. I am using Sebastian Shaper Pro+. If there are any fly aways you can use a fine tooth comb to smooth them down.

Step 8: Enjoy!
