Princess Leia's buns are an iconic hairstyle and perfect for a chilly Halloween night, but unless you have incredibly long, thick hair, they're well-nigh impossible to create. The ready-made buns costume stores sell are all the same straight mid-brown shade, which doesn't work for blondes, redheads, and raven-haired ladies, let alone anyone with waves or curls.
So what's a Star Wars fan to do? You can make these cute, inexpensive "buns" in just a few minutes. They'll match your hair and texture perfectly, you won't have to go to a crowded Halloween superstore, and you can reuse them anytime. Plus, your ears will stay nice and toasty no matter how cold All Hallows' gets.
