Leia’s Hoth crown braid has no part, the hair is brushed back from the front of the face.
The back of Leia’s Hoth drown braid has no part, this is the tricky part, but there is no back parting to the hair, this is likely because the braids are a hair piece that is pinned on and not an actually crown braid. More on this later.
Leia’s Hoth crown braid has a side curl in-front of the ears where the side burns are, these are small and not very thick, they also do not go lower then the jaw line generally.
Leia’s Hoth crown braids are actually two braids, or if you like, one very, very long braid that goes over the top of her head. however, when the braid is wrapped around her head it forms two rows of braids. On the back of Leia’s head the two rows are very clear and separate. See pink and green marking them. Over the top of Leia’s head the narrower part of the braids are crossed over each other to look like one thick braid. Where as the back of Leia’s braids are positioned to look like a double braid.
Hidden Little Bun:
Leia’s real hair is short and appears to be pulled back into a small bun at the base of her neck. This bun is flat and hidden beneath the double row of braids that cross over the back of her head. This is why there is no back part to Leia’s hair, the braids are a hair piece and not a real crown braid so there is no need for there to be a part in the hair.
Leia’s braid is positioned further back on her head and behind the ears, notice the soft C shape that the braids back curving over the back of her head.
These behind the scene photos show Leia with the braids hanging loose and though it hard to see it dose appears that the braids one long braid that is pinned on the top of her head and wrapped around the sides.
