I know there are already 50 billion versions of this out there, but I figured I ought to post mine anyway. I definitely went to all my classes (and meetings with professors!) dressed like Katniss today and am headed for the midnight premier later.
I did not make a video tutorial of this hair, and do not intend to unless you really need help seeing how it is braided. How To:
You should curl or let your hair dry in braids for extra texture on this hair style (before styling).
Separate bangs on the right side of your face and just a few for the left.
Part hair on left
Brush hair from right side to left.
On either side of head, select a few small sections and make tiny twists and roles for added texture on top of head, pin into place.
Starting on right side of head, begin to french braid down and across the back. If doing on yourself, you will need to braid under (crossing strands under each other, not over and into the center) to create the raised braid.
As you near the left side, start drawing hair from the left side of head to back left corner of your head.
Braid the rest into a single side braid.
Crimp or curl bangs on both sides of your head.
Happy Hunger Games! May the Odds be ever in your Favor!
