How to Perfect the Iconic Princess Leia Hairstyle

The Princess Leia Hairstyle
Princess Leia’s hairstyle is among the most iconic of all time and it’s been widely emulated by runway fashion models and Stars Wars fans alike. You can channel Princess Leia while giving the look your own modern twist. Try on Princess Leia-inspired hair in our virtual hairstyle studio.

Apply a generous amount of mousse to freshly washed hair that’s partially dry. Part your hair down the center (or deeply to one side) and brush one side smooth as you tilt your head toward the floor. Braid your hair, securing it at the end with a clear elastic. Create a side bun—what some Star Wars fans call “cinnamon buns”— by coiling the braid around...and around...and around...itself. You can do this over the ear, above the ear or slightly behind the ear if it’s merely a loose interpretation of Princess Leia's hairstyle you’re after. Hold tight to the bun as you secure it with copious amounts of bobby pins. Difficult to keep in place is this hairstyle, say beauty Yodas.

For a looser, softer interpretation of this look, you can also create pom-pom like bunches of hair on either side of your head by curling the hair and wearing it poufed around the ears. When you remove your Princess Leia hairstyle, low and behold, you’ll have wildly wavy hair that’s completely beach-worthy, which makes it great for sleeping in when you want to create waves (while still being about to sleep on your back). --Stephanie Simons
