I invented this Sci-fi wedding hairstyle look while doodling around with Nikki‘s hair. It reminded us both of Star Wars in a way. It is a perfect unique up-do for shortish-medium length hair. Shoulder length hair is the magic length for a french twist, not to mention two of ’em.
Recently, I read this awesome article in the New York Times about Sci-fi weddings,and how they and other offbeat wedding themes are on the rise. This is the perfect medium-length hair style for a Sci-fi wedding. My friend Nikki designs really cool Sci-fi nouveau jewelry too, if you are looking for something bling-o to accessorize your Sci-fi look.
To get this look, start by dividing the hair down the center and criss-cross pinning up both sides. This pinning technique is great when working with either super thick hair or very fine hair, because it creates a bit of a grid for other pins to grip to.
Take the whole backcombed piece in your hands, and roll it into a funnel. Pin it to your criss-cross pins to secure.
Repeat on the other side.
Now take the outer sections and smooth them across the rolls, and pin to secure.
I gathered the bottom of both rolls and pinned up through them in the center to finish off the look.
