How to Do a Princess Leia Hairstyle on Your Doll

I did a Rey hair tutorial a while back, and so today I thought I'd put Beth in Princess Leia buns! I took pictures as I went...

I used small hair pins, small elastics, a spray bottle, and a doll hairbrush.

Start with your dolls hair combed down.

Separate into two pigtails and tie them right on top of the ear.

As you can see, the pigtails are on top of the ear.

Twist toward the outside. 

Wrap the twist in a circle around the center of the ear. Pin as you go.

Once it was in place, I used extra pins and elastics to hold it in place. I also sprayed it with water to flatten some flyaways.

Do the same thing to the other side.

And you're done! 

Super simple and cute!

This technique can be used to make buns anywhere on your dolls head, too!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. This is so super cute! It's funny, I look a lot (and I mean A LOT) like Beth and I wear my hair like this so much! I get all these comments saying, "You look like Princess Leia!"
