Why can't just a messy braid/bun combo suffice? It's hard to see on screen, even on blu-ray.

Anything beyond stating messy braid/bun to me is just ticky tacky and a little off putting. (I have zero clue how to do a french braid and can hardly braid my own hair as it is due to a messed up shoulder.)

My two cents on the hair portion.

I'm fine leaving it with messy bun - the original standard had the log braid Laura mentioned and I have never seen a reference for that so I wasn't sure what our final decision might be before closing this forum?

OK, got'cha! It just seemed like a minor detail on the costume when the hair is probably the last thing anyone's going to be looking at.

I'm good with messy bun/braid combo. I watched ROTJ yesterday to try and spot details on the costume and it's just so hard with the Jabba's palace lighting.

(Can I just say I hate looking at details in dark scenes? Rolling Eyes ).

Anyway, the hair strands lie diagonal downwards and she has a center part, so a standard french or dutch braid is out of the question anyway. Any braid type starts on the back of her head.
A low, braided bun is most likely though, when looking at the references. The braid doesn't go straight down, but there is a part that goes across and somewhat out. There seems to be two of theses coming from each side. The hair overall is very messy and with many loose strands and locks framing her face.
I'd say generally messy hair with a low, braided bun would be the most correct for Leia. (And it also makes sense from a practical viewpoint). The bun is likely made in multiple braids looking at the size of the braids and where they come from. (At least two, possible three braids).

Thanks for everyone's thoughtful input into this. I will move the discussion onto the detachment for further discussion.
