I have searched all over the forum but couldn't find any subject about Qui-Gon Jinn's half pony tail holder.
Does anyone know how it is done or where I can find more info of how to do it to look good?

Here is a screen capture from the Phantom Menace movie where you can almost see how it looks like. Would have been nice if there were a closer picture of it. This is as best I have found it from the movie...

Just from looking at the picture you have posted, to me it looks like a couple of brown elastic hair bands. I have occasionally worn my hair like that with my Jedi costume, and while I don't have any pictures of it to show you, my hairband looks a lot like that, though not as long as I only use one.

Would be cool to make a an easy put-on-take-off pony tail holder instead of using elastic hairbands. Cause it's a pain to take it off. Smile
But you are probably right. Looks like elastic hairbands.
In Sweden, where I come from, we have a lot of medieval festivities and people dress accordingly at these events. At the markets people also make and sell a lot of different types of clothes, belts, swords etc etc.
I think I have seen something for pony tail that looks like what Qui-Gon Jinn uses at these markets. I must check it out next time I go. Smile

It looks to me like it's just some leather lace. You can pick that up at most craft stores. And as a bonus, leather tends to stay tied and doesn't hurt your hair too much.

I'm going to second the leather lace idea. Some of the screenshots I've seen from later in the film look like a slightly lighter color, but the best shots I've found look like a dark leather.

I'd say leather or suede cord, too.

if you want to make it as a holder, I think it's possible...

Let me see if I can explain this... Wink

perhaps if you make a holder like this in the appropriate size and then glue and wrap leather cord around it, and cutting it so that it can still open and close?

I hope this makes sense

I just use 2 brown elastic pony tail holders. Looks good enough I think.
