Star Wars Rey Hair Tutorial

Hey guys!

It has been a while since I’ve done a hair tutorial and I saw Star Wars last week and I just had to do a hair tutorial for Rey. This post will be spoiler free so if you’re still one of the few people who is yet to see it and wants to see it, this is a safe post. I really enjoyed the movie and I loved sitting in the cinema for the first time experiencing a new Star Wars release. I love Rey’s character and I am excited to see where the plot takes her! This look is very simple and there are a few different ways to achieve this look.

You’ll want to start off with freshly brushed hair. My hair goes a bit like an afro when I brush it but seeing as it will all be put back into buns, there’s no issue from this brush-fro business. You’ll also need to grab four hair ties and a few bobby pins, if necessary.

Next, you’ll want to grab your fringe section of your hair. If you don’t have a fringe, you can grab the section of hair on your head here a fringe would be.

You’ll then want to take one hair tie and tie it towards the back of your head like a little ponytail.

You’ll then want to think about separating your hair into three even sections. You can tie those off now if that will make things easier.

You will want to make a ponytail but when you go to loop the tie around the last time, don’t pull the hair all the way through. Just make a little bun bump and leave the rest of the hair hanging. Here is where you have some options.

For Rey’s buns, you can loop the excess hair around the hair band so that it can be concealed. This works best if you have short hair because it will wrap around easily and won’t look bulky. Longer hair tends to have a second bun effect when you wrap the excess hair around so I would recommend skipping it if it loses the bun effect from wrapping.

If you leave the hanging hair, add it to the next ponytail when you’re grabbing the next section and repeat the previous step.

You’ll want to do the same as the last step, either adding excess hair or wrapping it, when making the last bun.

With the left over excess hair, push the hair up under the bun, by the hair tie, into a little hole that you make with your fingers. This way, there is no left over hair. Alternatively, you wrap the excess hair around.

In the end, you hair should look a little something like this! Now you’re ready to take on the galaxy!

Covergirl Star Wars Promo!!!! MY HEART

By now, I think that everyone has found out about the Star Wars x Covergirl collaboration. I was super excited to hear about it last night and this morning I found some pictures that might get you even more excited about the collection! I also really want to try and recreate some of the promo photo makeup so stay tuned for that as well! This collection will be released online on September the 4th in the US. I’m just hoping that they might decide to release it here in Australia. If not, I’ll have to do some research on best people to purchase it through! This collection is celebrating the release of the new Star Wars film The Force Awakens

Pat McGrath created 6 looks to go with the collection and here are the first two that were released overnight! I think that they are stunning!

The first look is called the droid and uses a bronze and gold colour palette. I love this look because its futuristic and feminine.
