How To: Get Katniss' braid from "The Hunger Games"!
Are you seeing The Hunger Games as it premieres this weekend? Why don't you rock Katniss' signature braid to the show! Below you will find photos, and step-by-step directions showing you exactly how to create her signature braid! Not only is this perfect for the movie premiere, but braids are HUGE for spring and summer. This is the perfect lazy day hairstyle that looks so intricate and gorgeous, but is messy and easy to put together!
Step 1: If your hair is wet, prep the hair with identity1 soft body foam. This will ensure your hair has no tangles, and keeps your braid from looking flat. If you are starting off with dry hair, continue onto step 2.
Step 2: Give your hair a side part and brush your hair so there are no tangles. Start on the side with less hair, and begin a traditional french braid.
Step 3: Continue french braiding around the head and down along the nape of the neck, towards the opposite ear.
Step 4: When you get to the other side of your head and you have no more hair left to french braid, finish off with the classic 3 strand braid.
Step 5: Secure braid with an elastic. Then, to make it a little messier, go back and losen the braid. Take your fingers and begin to slowly pull the braid apart just a little, enough for to begin to seperate.
That's it! To set, use some of the identity1 medium hold hairspray to add some hold and shine.
For a braid that is more "true Katniss" and messy, take your hands and mess up your hair more for that "I've-just-been-fighting-for-my-life-in-the-arena" look!
Be sure to show us your braids on our Facebook page, we would love to see them!
