To celebrate Star Wars day, we’re all looking back on the films we’ve loved since they first hit the big screen. While the costuming is on point and the sets are out of this world, the hairstyling is what we always remember.

From buns to braids, here are the most iconic hairstyles from Star Wars.

Adam Driver as Kylo Ren

Making his first appearance in 2015’s Episode VII: The Force Awakens, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren served us some serious hair goals. His long, tousled dark locks have us considering joining the dark side to achieve something similar.

Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Easily the most influential look to come out of the Star Wars universe is Princess Leia’s buns. Carrie Fisher’s signature look not only defined her character in the films, but it inspired the modern space buns trend we all love today.

Natalie Portman as Padme Amidala

Natalie Portman’s Padme Amidala rocked many different hairstyles throughout episodes one to three. However, this curly look from Episode II: Attack of the Clones is one of the most beautiful we see in the entire franchise.

Harrison Ford as Han Solo

Before there was swoopy Justin Bieber hair, there was Han Solo’s bouncy ‘do. With the original film being heavily influenced by the 70’s, it’s no wonder Harrison Ford’s hairstyle is so memorable.

Daisy Ridley as Rey

When the franchise returned in 2015, audiences saw Daisy Ridley’s Rey paying homage to the bun trend by rocking this mohawk inspired styling. The look is so fitting for Rey that it reoccurs in every movie featuring her character.

Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi

This single braid may not be a look we want to replicate, but it’s definitely one we won’t forget. This ‘do was so iconic that not only Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi rocked it, but Hayden Christensen’s Anakin Skywalker did as well.
