Topic: Attack of the Hair

Princess Leia started it with her dual buns, but why do you think SW female characters had to have such wild hairdos?

Surely a serious senator would want to spend her time making a difference rather than doing her hair. What are your thoughts?

Re: Attack of the Hair

When I was younger and had my long hair, I always wanted to crazy and wild things with it. Then the prequels came out and I saw what I never managed to do, all those intricate hairstyles and headpieces. I think hair is part of the fantasy of Star Wars.

I've read that the hair was traditional in nature. So in effect it was part of Leia's senatorial work, like part of ones character or out showing of one's values as a senator.

Padme's hair was crazy as well, most of her hairdos were ugly looking in my opinion.

Re: Attack of the Hair

Not alone Si Titran. I liked some of them too. Some I didn't, like Leia's buns.

Re: Attack of the Hair

I love their hair. I have really long hair so I sometimes like to do some of them. The ones I do the best that look good on me are the Leia-Bespin one and the Padme-Tatooine-TPM one. My hair's not thick enough for Leia buns. And while I can do Leia's Hoth hair, I end up looking not very SW-y and more foreign, because I'm sorta blondish.

Re: Attack of the Hair

I personally love the hair-dos. Instead of the usual crown that distinguishes Royalty from the others, they have outstanding hair-dos. It's just something different I like.

Would you want to mess with someone who was willing to walk around with hair like that?

Re: Attack of the Hair

Yea I love Spaceballs, it is hilarious. Of course the members of my family who aren't in to Star Wars didn't get half the movie lol wink. Good thing it spoofed more than Star Wars then.

Re: Attack of the Hair

Its funny you mention family with Spaceballs, as my mother HATES that movie. She just doesn't think its funny. I also first found that movie by chance one afternoon by finding it on tv. Good stuff.

Back to hair... why is Luke blonde and Liea a brunette? And why aren't there more blondes in general in the SW universe?

Re: Attack of the Hair

I guess Luke's blonde and Leia's brunette cause that's how they were born. tongue But, yeah, I wonder that too. Why aren't there more blondes? I think there's more in the EU than in the movies though. It doesn't very much bother me, it just makes me curious.

Re: Attack of the Hair

Hmm I'd never really thought about it, but I'd consider Luke blonde at least in the ANH and TESB, his hair was a lot darker in ROTJ.

I suppose Padme's handmaidens had to be brunettes for the whole "disguise" bit.
