May the Hairspray Force Be With You.
So I tried lots of different ways to do this and Hair donuts are the bestest.

  • How to style a double bun. Princess Leia's Hair With Donuts :) - Step 1
    Step 1

    You need to select a donut that matches the shade of your hair colour.

    I use the dark brown. :)

    I got mine from Claires accessories.

  • Step 2

    I found this technique worked so much better when my hair was wet.

    So whilst hair is damp part in the middle and then split head of hair in half as if you are about to tie your hair in two pigtails.

  • Step 3

    Tie the two sections on your head with hair ties where you'd want the middle of your buns to be. I did mine so they covered my ears.

  • Step 4

    Thread your pigtail through the center of the donut. And begin to wrap hair around like you would do when making a pom pom (just don't get the scissors out and snip your hair!)

    Step 5

    Keep secure with hair grips and a whole can of hairspray! (jokes) You do need a lot of hairspray if you want it to last all night long though! xD

    And you're ready to rock with your leia hair.

Awesome!!! We're doing the Star Wars theme in my orchestra. My crazy friend and I are going to try and get our conductors to do their hair like this for the concert.

Cute! If you don't mind, I'd like to add that if you don't have a donut, cut the top off of a sock (crew cut and higher) and roll it up, cut side should be inside. It works just as well! (love your costuime, you look JUST like her!)
