This year, celebrate Star Wars Day with braids inspired by the films!

Braided hairdos are one of the greatest parts of Star Wars fashion. In her portrayal of Princess Leia in the movies, Carrie Fisher made sure that her crown braids and thickly knotted coils would become iconic. These days, stars including Daisy Ridley and Janelle Monae love to rock similar styles at Star Wars premieres.

In anticipation of May 4, not to mention the upcoming release of Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25, here’s some inspiration when it comes to creating your own Star Wars-worthy braids. — jas
