In Attack of the clones, Padmé wears a black corseted dress for dinner with Anakin and then after by the fireside. With this dress Padmé’s hair is done in a elegant but fairly simple style. Like with all Star Wars hairstyles this one will require some hairpieces, to make the twisted coils that wrap around the braid. (See Myths about Star Wars Hairstyles)
Padmé wears a center part with this hair style, however, it ends on the top of her head, there is no back part to this hairstyle.
The front of Padmé’s hairstyle is sodtly swept back from the center part into the twist that starts just above the ear. The front is soft and allowed to swoop downto just cover the tops of her ears.
Padm’s hair is twisted back away from her face on both sides, the twist stars roughly an inch or so above eyebrow high. The twits is roughly an 1 1/2″ or so in width, and rolled tightly until gathered at the base of her neck into one tail.
The twist that Padmé wears on both sides of her head follow the base line of her hairline in the back, they also start roughly right around the top of the ears.
The tail of Padmé hairstyle is a simple 3 strand braid, the braiding ends roughly mid shoulder-blade on Padmé which is also roughly about where the crease of her arm occurs.
Wrapped around the outside of Padmé’s braid is a twisted coil of hair, (this is a secondary hair piece that is added and no part of her natural hair, note the difference in color.) The twisted coil that wraps around the outside of Padmé’s braid stars at the base of her skull where the beginning of 3 strand braid starts and stops at the end of the braid as well. The twisted coil appears to be braided in a three strands braid manner, using the braid as the middle strand.
Padmé’s three strand braid is likely secured by a small elastic, and this is covered by the end of the twisted coil.
The end on Padmé hairstyle hangs loose from roughly mid shoulder blade, the very end of the tail also has a but of a curl.
The tail of Padmé’s hairstyle ends roughly elbow length.
