So of course we all know what today is:
Yes, May the Fourth or Star Wars Day. A day to fangirl or fanboy about Star Wars as much as you want.
A day to watch the films,
And just enjoy anything Star Wars.
You know that every year I wear as much Star Wars stuff as I can and do all kinds of Star Wars stuff throughout the day. In fact today, I made up a Star Wars book display at the library for May the 4th and to honor the release of a A Star Wars Episode IV: New Hope (May 25th).
And one thing I always do is rock the Princess Leia Crown Hairdo.
I know they aren’t as iconic as the Princess Leia Hair Buns, but trust me the Princess Leia Crown Hairdo is amazing, easy, fit for any occasion, and everyone can pull them off.
So this hairdo is worn in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.
It is really easy to do.
- Part hair in the middle.
- Braid hair into two braids on either side of your head, pigtail style.
- Take one braid and wound up your head, pinning it in place with bobby pins.
- Take the other braid and wound it up your head as well, meeting with the first braid.
For those who are visual, click here. Amazing, simple, and so easy! I don’t know about you, but this is how most of my mornings go:
But this is something that even I, the hairstyling challenged can do, is something that once you do your hair actually stays that way all day. It is fantastic if you are just hanging out, going to a fancy event, hiking, needing to stay cool in summer, going on a roller coaster, etc.
And above all- you look and feel like a princess.
Regal, strong, confident, and powerful,
Well I hope you all enjoyed Star Wars day whatever you did or wore. And always:
