How to Get Princess Leia's Hair! (two Versions)

Introduction: How to Get Princess Leia's Hair! (two Versions)

About: Hello! My name is Antonia and I am an English literature & Journalism graduate with a passion for food and all things vintage!

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:

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!
