Hi all,

I have been trying to find ideas for hair style tips for female generic Jedi costume standards? I have brown hair to below my shoulders.

Are there any dos and donts for up or down dos? What type of accessories are allowed, clips bobby pins, hair ties etc...

Thanks

I would just make sure it looks in universe and wouldn't get in the way fighting - Jedi need to be practical. I use hair bands and bobby pins that match my hair (also brown) and pull it all back and then gel it into twists that I pin close to my head so that it cant fly around and hit me if I do a spin. I do do a padawans braid with my own hair and I do use colored small rubber bands on the top and bottom of that because you can see the wraps on Anakin's in the film. I like purple (its my favorite color) so I tend to use purple bands but they are so small and the color is dark like my hair they don't stand out a whole lot.

I've seen them with all different hair styles for women, but I have noticed most of them have shorter hair. Have you looked through Wookiepedia?

I've found for my mid back length I plait it and pin it over the top keeping it out of my face and in universe (but I am making a braided cord to go into the plait as I want something else added (Making braid using DMC embroidery threads that pretty much match costume colours)

You can pull the top part back to a pony tail and leave the rest hanging down the back (like Qui-Gon)

The key with Jedi hair is to not make it look too modern or too wild. A Jedi's hair is always practical and well groomed. There's no fancy decorations I've seen, but leather ties are a good way to go. Adding little braids or tails, especcially in an unusual way is always a plus. If you can get it in a ponytail you can add a fake bun over it, even throw in some braids. Best thing to do is look at the background characters and see what they have going on.

Here's a couple of styles I've done.

3 small tails:

Bun with 4 hanging braids.. the bun itself is wrapped around a ring and the braids are fake hair

Exactly what Vera said. For me, I've noticed that the hair is something some Jedi costumers tend to not pay much attention to. In terms of braids, you could always use different colored embroidery floss for the padawan look. Smile

I used a fake braid, wrapped around my head like a headband... since my hair is short.



I've stopped using it since it no longer matches my hair color, but I really liked it when I did wear it.
