Still on the topic of Katniss Everdeen, one thing we all couldn’t help but take away from The Hunger Games series are her always on-trend plaits. Admit it, you at one point probably asked your friend to braid your hair in the same way she wore them during the first movie.
Now that we’re down to the first part of the final leg, we see Katniss sporting an updated version of her signature braids. We couldn’t help but notice the similarity to a look spotted on the Spring 2014 runway, which lead us to finding this step-by-step guide in copping the do. Check it out:
As a bonus, we’re giving you four simple hacks to upgrade your braid:
- Keep a fishtail straight by wrapping a ribbon around the base and intertwine it as you braid your hair.
- Curling your hair prior to braiding keeps strands from flying away while you twist.
- To give your braids a bit of texture, create friction with a toothbrush to get just the right amount of strands to stick out.
- Get an uneven effect by holding two sections of a three-strand braid in your hand and sliding it up as you finish. Slide it back down, tie, and brush upwards with a flat bristle brush.
