Hello, fellow movie queens. Have you ever watched a movie, wishing that you could have hair just like your favorite character? Today I present you with an assorted collection of my favorite Hollywood hair tutorials that can be done on any length of hair and at any skill level. Please note that I did not include tutorials for Elsa or Katniss, as approximately 5,678,783 are easily available for both with a quick Google search.
1. Princess Leia from "Star Wars"
I included this one because isn’t your typical Princess Leia with two huge buns over your ears--this is her “Ceremony” hair from “A New Hope.” If I may suggest, try wrapping the small braids around the bun in opposite directions.
2. Lady Sybil from "Downton Abbey"
I think you can skip the first few minutes of this video since the girl is just curling her hair. (Also, from this point on, if it’s a video tutorial, I didn’t have my volume on, so I have no idea what any of these people are saying while they demonstrate. Just a disclaimer.)
Anyhow, this is a really pretty and much simpler version than other Lady Sybil tutorials I’ve seen.
3. Tauriel from "The Hobbit"
I call this the "modified Tauriel" style because it's not exactly like her movie hair, but this is much easier and less Elf-y, better for the regular girl. You can even do what I did and ditch the "elven-bangs." Plus, there's a bonus makeup tutorial, if you're into that.
Also, the commentary from the author of the post made me chuckle: "Have you been flirting with any cute dwarves lately?"
4. Anne from "Anne of Green Gables"
I’ve always wondered how they did those pompadour hairdos way back when. I feel like this tutorial is a more updated version that you could possibly wear out. At any rate, it’s a fun one to try on a snowy day when you’re stuck at home.
5. Emma from, well, "Emma"
This girl’s blog isn’t called “Rapunzel’s Resource” just for anything. Check out the length of her hair!
I found this tutorial a long time ago, right after I had watched the new Romola Garai version of Emma and was enchanted by her hair coif. I don't have long enough hair for this style, but I sure wish I did.
6.Lucy from "I Love Lucy"
Here’s another “snowy day,” just for fun tutorial. Here’s what the blogger who designed it said: “This is definitely a fun hairstyle but one that I don't think I will wear too often. Like Lucy, this 'do is over the top and pretty recognizable and while I do love Lucy, I'd rather not look like I'm desperately trying to resemble her.”
So, in summary, there are more way more Hollywood hair tutorials out there than you think! If you have a particular hairdo in mind, I suggest searching for it on Pinterest, where I found all of these. Also, if someone has one “vintage” or “movie” hair tutorial on their blog or youtube, they’re bound to have more.
